Dallas Stars 2008-09 Fantasy Hockey Preview

Adam GreuelSenior Analyst ISeptember 14, 2008

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

Marty Turco
Tobias Stephan

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.
