From first place to... well I'm still in first

So, I drafted a somewhat decent team this year, but I wasn't happy. So I trolled the waiver wire for the first few weeks of the season and picked up a few decent replacments.

Rod Brind'amour, Ray Whitney, Erik Cole.

It didn't occur to me until after I had picked these guys up after the first few weeks that they not only all played on the same team (the incredibly hot Carolina Hurricanes) but they all played on the same line.

Now at the start of the season this was good, the team was hot, the line was hot. Brind'Amour was leading the NHL in points.

Then Brindy gets hurt and the Canes hit a slump.

So much for my 40 point lead in my pool.

The good news, I'm still in first and the line is heating up again. Thank god (and Sidney Crosby) that I had some decent players to slot in while they were cold.
