This week’s post will be short and sweet since it’s the week between Christmas and New Years and I’ve got a deck chair and a book calling my name.

This week we saw Brett D and Davin execute two trades with each other. The sum of these trades is:

Brett D trades
Joe Thornton
Jakob Silfverberg
11th round pick

Davin trades
Tyler Johnson
Jonathan Druin
24th round pick

Start negotiating your deadline deals now, boys. The good players aren’t going to last.

Brock continues to chase after Chris, and his win over Rhys keeps him just 3 games back. Brett D’s commanding performance over Steve has quietly given him a three game winning streak, as did Cal’s win over Jace and Sohayl’s over Brennan. Frank narrowly beat out Davin to drop him to 1-11, and Chris shellacked Brett R to move to 12-1.
