With the Band-Aid Boys list being such a huge help in terms of guiding you in your fantasy leagues, it only makes sense to also identify the habitual streaky players. Thanks to reader feedback, we’ve cobbled together a pretty good name for these guys – the Windex Wonders.

 

 

 

These are the guys who will drive you bananas. There is no need to steer clear of them on draft day, because the end result will still meet most projections. But getting to that final number will have you pulling your hair. You’ll be patting yourself on the back for drafting a superstar as he notches 12 points in eight games. Then you’ll be cursing yourself for not trading him when he was hot as he gets mired in a seven-game pointless drought. This list is to help you not get too excited when these players catch fire – and by the same token not to panic when they cool off.

 

 

While it is possible to add rookies and sophomores to the Band-Aid Boy list due to some of their previous injuries, the Windex Wonders are generally players who have been in the league for several years and have established a pattern habit of hot/cold runs. There are different levels of streakiness. Some will go on three-game hot then cold runs. Some will go 20 hot, 10 cold. But count on these guys to get their points in bunches.

... Do you think Chris Stewart, Dustin Penner, Jason Garrison, Carl Hagelin and Jiri Tlusty should qualify as WWs? Also I think the whole board of directors has retired, maybe it's time for an election smilies/smiley.gif

Shattenkirk Kevin Shattenkirk is still very early in his career, but he seems like a glaring omission.

His first year in the league (two years ago), he started the season in the AHL with 0 points in 10 games. Then he got called up to Colorado, and put up something like 16 points in his first 18 games. Then he went on an unbelievable cold streak (I remember it being 1 point in 17 games, or something very similar). After that he picked it up again, before being traded to St. Louis where he finished the season with 17 points in 26 games.

That alone should probably be enough to qualify him, but this year (his third year in the league) he had 19 points in his first 24 games, before his current streak of 2 points in 15 games.

... Havlat needs to be added. When he's healthy he's just so inconsistent.

I also think it's time to take Kessel off the list. He has had only one four game pointless streak in the past two seasons while the rest of the time it'll just be a one or two games without scoring but preceded and followed by solid scoring stretches.

... I had Enstrom in there because of his history of going on a 70-pace until January and a 30-pace after that. I removed him.
Feel free to give more suggestions

James Neal I am going to say that Neal is going to be on this list in a year or two. Starting to see signs of Horton type production. He will be more like the 20 on and 10 off type of guy ... just a hunch tho, maybe he proves me wrong.

... Me thinks the Sabres Derek Roy should/could be on the Executive? Great idea Dobber.

Austin - I'd agree with you on Wellwood, but this list should be exclusively for NHL players! Sorry, couldn't pass up a shot at Wellwood!

... Taboo goalie suggestion: Bryzgalov? Or maybe it just seems that way cause he gets me 0 in 10 and then 5 W 2 SHO in 5, on a regular basis...

Sam Gagner!! He is near demigod status when it comes to this.

Havlat, Vermette, Brown are a few.
