The Winks Fantasy Curse Strikes Jaroslav Halak

There's a little known curse out there that is probably bigger than the Madden Curse in terms of effects on a players performance, and that would be the "Winks Fantasy Curse". Surely, everyone has there share of fantasy mishaps, but guys that I draft take it to a whole new level. Matt Stafford, Dallas Clark, DeAngelo Williams, and Tony Romo are all guys that I drafted in leagues that are now shelved. I just found out yesterday that Greg Oden, who I drafted in both of my fantasy basketball leagues, will miss another season and at this point I'm guessing his career. But the curse doesn't always strike in the form of injury, check out how the curse affected St. Louis Blues goalie Jaroslav Halak last night against Detroit:

Funny thing is, when I was a goalie in high soccer for soccer, I did something quite similar. The Winks curse strikes again!
