Fantasy Hockey Roundtable: Drop Them While They’re Hot

December 13, 2009 | By Steven Ovadia | comment on this post
Stephen Weiss is having a career year for the Florida Panthers.
Can Stephen Weiss keep up this pace?

This week our Fantasy Hockey Roundtable was asked “Which players are you currently looking to sell while their hot?”

Your humble correspondent threw Stephen Weiss under the bus:

The hot player I’m considering dumping is Stephen Weiss from the Florida Panthers. He’s coming off a December 2 hat trick and has five goals in his last five games. He’s got 13 goals and 11 assists in his first 31 games. Weiss is having a career season. Amazingly, he’s never scored more than 20 goals in a season and he’s never had more than 48 points. One school of thought says Weiss will continue to sizzle, but I’m guessing, as the Panthers continue to struggle, his production will return to his usual low-to-average levels. There’s nothing in his history to suggest he’s about to evolve into an offensive superstar. Weiss is doing well right now, and some Fantasy owners are probably cashing in on his recent hot streak, but I’m betting this is all just an illusion.

    Weiss actually had 61 points in 74 games last year. He’s now up to 29 points in 34 games this year, which only puts him three points ahead of last year’s pace. The non-believable part is his goal scoring, where he’s already exceeded his goal total from last year. Sell, sure, but the primary problem is that probably nobody else buys his performance to date either.

    You’re right! My bad!
    I don’t think any NHL GMs will bite on Weiss but I’m sure some fantasy GMs will.
