We are now one day away from 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.
I realize I have fallen a little behind on these due to my schedule, but the plan is to get a lot done during the four-day weekend I have this week. Hopefully I won't be finished too late into the season.

Fantasy Stud: Mike Comrie-
Wouldn’t really call him a fantasy stud, but sadly he is the best the Islanders have got.
Watch out for: the entire team-
The only good thing about the Islander’s in their goalies.
