ESPN FHL Buffalo Pro H2H Points League 2022 – 2023
Each NHL season Buffalo Winter participates with one team in a random league run by ESPN, and put all my attention and efforts into my lone entry, win or lose I put in the time each day, and wear my heart on my sleeve for my team.
Using my team as an example to highlight ESPN FHL tools available, statistical information, and player movement I put my pucks where my mouth is, everything I write about is first-hand experience nothing vicarious.
Having observed fantasy Hockey “experts” on social media sites advising you to drop this player or pick this player up because he is currently trending positively or negatively statistically yet they will not show you how they run their team and/or league to back up what they are proposing.
Both ESPN and the NHL have websites with a plethora of fantasy articles and whimsical prognostications and Top 100 this or Top 50 that, nice information but not practical for a team manager in an ESPN FHL.
Statistically, Buffalo Winter is leading in most offensive scoring statistics, the most Goals, Assists, Power Play Points, Short Handed Points, and Shots on Goal adding up to the league lead in Points For then ironically losing four weekly matchups, highlighting timing as to when your players earn points.
Utilizing the “watch list” and “waiver wire” Buffalo Winter has made more moves than the other nine team managers combined, is this good or bad would depend on the player’s positive production provided and if assisted in winning the weekly matchup.
Currently, Buffalo Winter is in fourth place overall, second in the West Division, and a positive position in the playoff seeding race which allows for four out of the League’s 10 teams competing to participate in the playoffs.
There is no wrong way or right way to “play” fantasy Hockey there is you and the enjoyment you take from the time and effort you put into your team and league.
