Attention: All those Bleacher Creatures who reside in the NHL Community.

This is an open invitation to any member of the B/R NHL Community to take over a Fantasy Hockey team for the 2009-10 season.

I've got two leagues on ESPN.com (which is by far the best site for fantasy sports since it offers free live scoring, unlike Yahoo) in which I am looking to replace a total of eight inactive owners.

League One is a four player Keeper League, meaning that you can select four players from the roster of the team you take over to keep on your roster for next season. 

If you're new to the world of fantasy sports, the rest of your roster will be filled during the league draft, which will be held sometime before the start of the 2009-10 NHL season.

League Two, not surprisingly to those of you who hang around the Pittsburgh Penguins' community, is a league specifically for Penguin fans.

This league allows you to keep five players from your current roster on your team for next season. The rest of your team will be filled during the draft.

Seeing as this is an open invitation, I would like only to suggest that any and all applicants be prepared to remain active in the league for the duration of the season and not bail on your team after you lose your first two match-ups.

I'm not looking for experience so much as dedication.

Anyone interested in taking over a team in either of the two leagues can just drop a line in the comments section including your e-mail address and which of the two leagues you are interested in. I will send you some more info and a league invitation promptly.

Thanks guys, and good luck to everyone in their writing endeavors as we prepare for the NHL playoffs.
