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.
Dallas Stars 2008-09 Projected Lineup
Brenden Morrow-Mike Ribeiro-Jere Lehtinen
Sean Avery-Brad Richards-Loui Eriksson
Joel Lundqvist-Mike Modano-Krys Barch
Fabian Brunnstrom-Steve Ott-Toby Peterson
Sergei Zubov-Stephane Robidas
Philippe Boucher-Trevor Daley
Niklas Grossman-Matt Niskanen
Fantasy Stud: Brenden Morrow
This guy had a monster season last year and I expect him to be even better this year, one of the most underrated players in the NHL.
Watch Out For: Fabian Brunnstrom
Way to over hyped, Brunnstrom likely won’t produce too much in his first pro season.
