Top 5 Forwards Available

Believe it or not (I certainly don't), but Nik Antropov is the top forward for the Week Ten Waiver Draft. His 5 goals and 9 points rank him 7th in league scoring and give him a leg up on the competition. He's slowly becoming a hero, rather than his annual position as goat, in Toronto. Will he last another five weeks to be the first pick in the Waiver Draft?

Also with five goals in this early part of the season, Niklas Hagman of the Stars is sitting with 7 points and ranking 21st in league scoring. He's turned out to be an early surprise for the Stars, one which they'll take since they had plenty of trouble scoring goals last season. Will he keep up this pace?

Available in the Selection Sheet pool, Ruslan Fedotenko has had a reasonable start to the season and could be someone to look towards when the Waiver Draft hits. 2 goals and 5 assists is what he's tallied in 6 games so far this season. He's in the Top 40 of players and could be a good sparkplug for your pool team.

Also available on the Selection Sheet, Brad Boyes of the Blues has quietly racked up 6 points in 5 games. Boyes has scored 4 goals so far this season and could be the most promising of the players so far available on this short list.

Known as more of a defensive forward, the Devils have really enjoyed the emergence of John Madden as player who's generating offense. Madden has 4 goals and 6 points for New Jersey so far this season and with the lack of Scott Gomez in the swamp, Madden's offensive role may have increased and possibly rightly so.
