Just who is the streakiest player in the NHL? We've compiled a 'Windex Wonders' list of candidates...
With the Band-Aid Boys list being such a huge help in terms of guiding you in your fantasy leagues, it only makes sense to also identify the habitual streaky players. Thanks to reader feedback, we’ve cobbled together a pretty good name for these guys – the Windex Wonders.
These are the guys who will drive you bananas. There is no need to steer clear of them on draft day, because the end result will still meet most projections. But getting to that final number will have you pulling your hair. You’ll be patting yourself on the back for drafting a superstar as he notches 12 points in eight games. Then you’ll be cursing yourself for not trading him when he was hot as he gets mired in a seven-game pointless drought. This list is to help you not get too excited when these players catch fire – and by the same token not to panic when they cool off.
While it is possible to add rookies and sophomores to the Band-Aid Boy list due to some of their previous injuries, the Windex Wonders are generally players who have been in the league for several years and have established a pattern habit of hot/cold runs. There are different levels of streakiness. Some will go on three-game hot then cold runs. Some will go 20 hot, 10 cold. But count on these guys to get their points in bunches.
