Default XBS 3 Stars: Week 1 - A Leaf And Two Cats

Usually week 1 is an easy week when it comes to choosing the Three Stars. However, this week was quite the exception as there were numerous players that could have made this list. If you feel slighted, my apologies.

Toronto Maple Leafs
[ Forward | 5gp | 8g | 4a | 12pts ] - [ Week Record | 3-2-0 ]

As hard as I tried, I just couldn't ignore the outstanding week OTH put on display for the Leafs. With his 12 points, he wasn't the top scorer of the week, but it was how he scored the goals that made the difference, and allowed him to nab the #1 spot. He was absolutely clutch, leading all forwards with 3 game winning goals and one of those was even a shorty in a 2 - 1 overtime victory over the Oilers. And if that wasn't enough, in both games against those same Oilers to end the week, he netted back to back hat tricks while being named the First Star in each game. OTH isn't the flashiest player on the rink, but this week he was a sight to behold.

Florida Panthers
[ Forward | 6gp | 11g | 9a | 20pts ] --- [ Defense | 1gp | 0g | 0a | 0pts ] - [ Week Record | 5-2-0 ]

Banks just continues to go about his business season after season, steadily accumulating points night after night. He was the leading scorer among all forwards (playing center and wing) in Week 1 with 20 points, and even chipped in a game on defense where he had a perfect D-Rating. He has also always been known as a physical player and this week he did not disappoint as he led all forwards with 19 hits while also leading the charge in +/- with a +13. Banks' Panthers sit atop the standings and with the week that he had offensively it's no surprise; talk about leading by example, it's time to hop on the Banks train.

Florida Panthers
[ Defense | 3gp | 1g | 3a | 4pts ] --- [ Goalie | 1gp | 1.00gaa | .909% ] - [ Week Record | 4-0-0 ]

After a brief hiatus, Fluky returned to XBS and boy did he make a statement in Week 1. Pulling double duty for the Cats, playing three games on defense and another between the pipes, he was a man possessed. In his three starts on the back end, where he was undefeated in the lineup, he had a perfect D-Rating of 100.0 while leading all defensemen with a +/- of +15. Making his league debut in the pipes, Fluky was cool as a cucumber, allowing only 1 goal in a 2 - 1 victory over Winnipeg while posting a .909 S%. He was also named the Third Star in that game. If Fluky continues to play at this level, the $3 million Banks spent on him may just be steal of the draft.
