Another lacklustre week for points throughout the pool... but the top teams are still getting enough to pull away from the bottom. Only a total of 230 points from all 14 teams last week, which is about 100 less than our best weeks. With the implementation of the newly picked-up players, there should be a drastic increase in points... not to mention 10 more games being played through the league this week will also help.

Don's Dinos & the Shaving Moes both ran away last week potting 26 points each... while the 4th place Team EA look to move up even further after a 25 point week.

Last week, two players came up with huge numbers... one's a Czech and one's a chunk. Both Jaromir Jagr (Langdon River Dogs) and Keith Tkachuk (THE Team) each picked up 9 points a piece.

Tuesday's News:
Monday night saw day-to-day injuries to both Jason Spezza (Sherpa's Yaks) with a hip pointer and Ed Belfour (The Shaving Moes) with a groin injury. Sunday saw Paul Mara (The Late Impact) and Glen Murray (Team Lowes Racing) down with the flu for a couple days


Saturday's news:
Long-term losses: Both Joni Pitkanen & Martin Havlat were lost to the Sherpa's Yaks for extended periods of time. Pitkanen 4 to 6 weeks, Havlat, possibly the season. Guess who's getting dropped today... Tomas Vokoun (Team Lowes Racing) has been sidelined indefinitely with a groin injury. Mario Lemieux (Doug's Deadbeats) will be sidelined for a week or two after checking himself into the hospital for an irregular heartbeat. Roman Hamrlik (The Slim Pickens) was lost indefinitely with a strained knee... he'll probably miss up to a month with his injury... the Pickens made no comment as to whether or not he'd be dropped. Simon Gagne (Team Chevy) was also shelved for a couple weeks after straining his groin. A pretty big hit to Team Chevy's point total, for sure.

WARNING: Try to avoid taking Peter Bondra... he's out for a month. His points look good, but he won't be playing for a little while.

Returns to the line-up: Oleg Tverdovsky (Team Chevy) returned to the 'Canes line-up on Tuesday after missing 5 games with a concussion. Adam Foote (Team EA) came back after missing 4 games with a strained groin. Both John LeClair (The Late Impact) and Ziggy Palffy (Pull the Goalie) returned to the Pens line-up after missing a game a piece this week. Evgeni Nabokov (Team Chevy) played again this week for the Sharks after being on and off the injury list this week. Hopefully, he'll be back to normal playing time. Peter Forsberg (Pull the Goalie) returned to the Flyers line-up today... and scored a goal in the first period against the Wild as I was writing this.

And that's the news.
