Florida Panthers 2008-09 Fantasy Hockey Preview

Adam GreuelSenior Analyst ISeptember 18, 2008

We are now at 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.

Florida Panthers 2008-09 Projected Lineup

Cory Stillman-Stephen Weiss-Nathan Horton
David Booth-Brett McLean-Richard Zednik
Rostislav Olesz-Kamil Kreps-Radek Dvorak
Ville Peltonen-Gregory Campbell-Wade Belak

Jay Bouwmeester-Keith Ballard
Bryan Allen-Nick Boynton
Karlis Skrastins-Noah Welch

Tomas Vokoun
Craig Anderson

Fantasy Stud: Nathan Horton

With Jokinen now out of the picture, this young sniper was an easy choice.  Expect him to inch closer to the 40-goal mark this year.

Watch Out For: Tomas Vokoun

Great goalie on a bad team.  He won’t get you many wins or shutouts.
