New York Rangers 2008-09 Fantasy Hockey Preview

Adam GreuelSenior Analyst IJune 1, 2016

We are now two days 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: Scott Gomez

Still managed 70 points, despite early struggles last year.

 

Watch out for: Brandon Dubinsky

An amazing season had him scoring 40 points, but I don’t see him improving on it this year.
