Hockey Night in Canada commentator P.J. Stock figures a quartet of San Jose Sharks is key to padding his point total in the Kia Fantasy Pool.

I can't believe I'm doing this.

I'm saying goodbye to Mr. 87 (Sidney Crosby) for this week.

Despite him leading the NHL with 23 points in 16 games, I'm thinking this could be a tough week for the Pittsburgh Penguins. But not for the San Jose Sharks.

OK, so they lost 4-2 to the Vancouver Canucks. But now they travel to Edmonton, Calgary and Winnipeg ... could be big nights for Joe Pavelski or Logan Couture or Big Joe Thornton.

I took all three skaters and added Sharks netminder Antti Niemi to my keepers, too. I'm betting the house on the Sharks having an explosive week!

I also had to jump on the Erik Karlsson bandwagon. The former Norris Trophy winner is starting to light it up for the Ottawa Senators and is on pace for 90 points, as a defenceman.

Good luck with your picks... but not too much!
