Fantasy report

I like to take a look at the reviews and updates put out for those folks who have fantasy league because those reports tend to be bluntly honest, and often on the money. Newspapers have to tread lightly as to not burn potential interview bridges, and everyday bloggers have their own biases (self included). Fantasy league owners have biases, too, but they look at stats like no one else. Thus, here is a bluntly honest fantasy review for Mathieu thus far:

"As expected, Mathieu Schneider, who is usually one of the top plus/minus players in the NHL, is suffering early in his Atlanta career. He has just one point in four games and a minus-4 rating." (from Michael Hurcomb at CBS Sports.com Fantasy News)

"The Thrashers desperately need Mathieu Schneider to get rolling. He has just one assist and was minus-4 through five games." (from Sportsnet.ca's Mike Brophy)

Well, yeah. He's not done so well so far. But it is early in the season, and he's barely adjusted to the team yet. No need to push the panic button... unless you have him in your fantasy league. =)
