Columbus Blue Jackets 2008-09 Fantasy Hockey Preview

We are now about a week away from the start of training camp for the 2008-09 NHL season and my hockey-crazed brother and I have begun work on our own fantasy hockey magazine, predicting the stats for every player on the starting roster of an NHL team.

We hope we can accurately predict most players' statistics and we hope to help you with your fantasy hockey teams. A new article will be posted every couple of days at the most, and some teams will come even sooner. We will be doing this in alphabetical order.

Columbus Blue Jackets 2008-09 Projected Roster

Rick Nash-R.J. Umberger-Kristian Huselius
Fredrik Modin-Michael Peca-Raffi Torres
Jason Chimera-Derick Brassard-Jakub Voracek
Mike York-Jiri Novotny-Jared Boll

Rostislav Klesla-Fedor Tyutin
Mike Commodore-Jan Hejda
Ole-Kristian Tollefsen-Christian Backman

Pascal Leclaire
Fredrik Norrena

Fantasy Stud: Rick Nash

Even though Nash’s new center (Umberger) is definitely not a first line talent, Nash should score more then last year with a talented Kristian Huslieus the other new player on his line.

Watch Out For: Fredrik Modin

Talented player with Tampa who struggled mightily with serious injuries last year, he is not getting any younger.
