Beginning of Story Content

P.J. Stock provides his Hockey Night in Canada Fantasy Pool picks on a weekly basis. This week, he discusses who to stick with, despite some early surprises this season.
It's tough in the first few weeks to pick players for your fantasy teams or hockey pools because you aren't sure how some guys are going to get out of the gates.

Who would have seen the Colorado Avalanche atop the league? Or the Toronto Maple Leafs leading the way? Who would have guessed that the New York Rangers would be a disaster defensively in the early weeks.

Build your leads because I'm only warming up in the Hockey Night in Canada Fantasy Pool!

The West has been eating up the East early on and for that I'm going to jump on the Anaheim Ducks who are playing out of their conference this week. Add in Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry, as well as Jonas Hiller.

I still like the Washington Capitals' power-play and looking for it to have another good week.

Hard not to have PK Subban on your team as he might be shooting the puck from the point better then anyone in the league. He'll cost you three points but he's worth it.

Hey ... 87 (Sidney Crosby) is still playing ... that's a lay up!
