I’m getting some good reports about participation in the leagues and that is a good thing.  Nothing worse than being in a league where 3 or 4 guys do absolutely nothing.  On a technical note, please don’t change your team name throughout the course of the season.  It will make my life harder than it has to be and other than concrete and viagra, making something harder benefits no one… 

League #1: The Cheap Seats

Commissioner: Howard  

Rank     Team                               W-L-T    Pts
1.        Parenteau Guidance    16-5-1     33            
2.        The Price is Right          13-6-3    29    
3.        Jethro                                 13-8-1    27      
3.        Optimus Reim                  13-8-1    27    
5.        Deception Dominance  12-8-2   26    
6.        Broad Street Bullies        9-10-3  21      
7.        Laraque Bottom               8-11-3   19  
8.        Grabner 5-Hole                 9-13-0  18
9.         Blue Line Defenders       8-12-2   18  
10.       Hank For Vezina             7-12-3   17  
11.       whobustedass                   6-13-3   15 
12.       KyHabs                                6-14-2   14

So this week Jethro jumped all the way up to 3rd in the standings by pummeling whobustedass 9-2.  Jethro had a nice week from Joe Pavelski and 2 Wins apiece from Lundqvist and Fleury.  A .957 SV% from your top 2 Goalies is going to win you alot of weeks in the Goaltending categories.  And I could be wrong, but it looks like this league is setting up as a Have and Have-Nots.

League #2 – RazzPuckBunnies

9.         GreystonSchmohawsk   9-13-0   18
10.      Sin Bin Sadists                    8-12-2   18 
11.       Jagr Bombs                         5-15-2   12 
12.       Gator’s Bitches                  3-14-5    11

 The biggest beatdown of the week was administered by Portable Ninja as he shut out Gator’s Bitches 7-0.  Ninja rode stud forwards Loui Eriksson and Martin St. Louis, D men Zdeno Chara and Marc-Andre Bergeron, and goalie Annti Niemi.  Gator was let down by Ilya Kovalchuk and Eric Staal, but ultimately it was the atrocious play of Jonas Hiller and Jaroslav Halak which shut him out of all goaltending categories.

League #3 – RCL Bobby Hull Division

11.          Smarch Snow                 5-17-0  10  
12.         Rasktastic!                       4-16-2   10

Imissbaseball is tearing up the league after an 11-0 pummeling of Smarch Snow.  IMB keep’s getting ridiculous goaltending from Jonathan Quick (3 Shutouts this week!) and Thomas Vokoun (3 wins, 1 SO).  Meanwhile Phaneuf keeps making me look stupid (1G/5A/2PPP/13SOG) while Duncan Keith (5A, +5) and Alex Ovechkin (2G/3A/4PPP/6SOG) rebounded nicely after a slow start.  Carey Price’s awful week didn’t help SmarchSnow’s cause and neither did the (seriously disappointing) Chris Stewart (0 Points, -4)..  Looks like Imissbaseball could be running away with this league already!

League #4

Commissioner:  Matt D.

Rank         Team                           W-L-T      Pts                                              
1.           Toronto Make Beliefs 21-1-0    42

11.         True North Puck Co.        4-17-1    9
12.         SnepstsMustacheRides   3-18-1    7

Vanek and Stamkos once again paced Toronto Make Beliefs to a commanding victory which puts some distance between him and the rest of the league. MAF was brilliant with a 1.34 GAA, 82 SV’s, two W’s and a .953 SV%. VOW. SnestsMustacheRides got some decent quart backing from John-Michael Liles (4 A, 11 SOG) but didn’t really stand a chance. Didn’t help that his ace in net is the so-far underwhelming Roberto Luongo (.889 SV%).

Okay so there is your RCL League update for Week 2!  Thanks to all the Commissioner’s for their hard work!
