Many fantasy pools have their playoffs the last few weeks of the regular season.  Over the next few weeks I would like to address the 'playoff' schedule a few times.  I want the analysis to be tailored to your rules, your formats, yours teams and your concerns so please post your playoff schedule questions in the 'Article Feedback' forum.

 

 

Looking at a team's schedule may help your chances of finding a good injury replacement.  Here are some of the high and low ratings for teams over a two, three and four week period starting January 30, 2009. The rating is shown in brackets.

 

Two weeks

High ratings: Predators (8.21), Flames (7.89)

Low ratings: Sharks (4.75), Blackhawks (4.66)

 

Three weeks

High ratings: Predators (12.31), Blue Jackets (12.17)

Low ratings: Sharks (8.55), Bruins (8.55), Ducks (7.92)

 

Four weeks

High ratings: Predators (15.45), Blue Jackets (15.12)

Low ratings: Thrashers (11.41), Canucks (10.91)
