We are now a week into 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.
Ottawa Senators 2008-09 Projected Lineup
Dany Heatley-Jason Spezza-Daniel Alfredsson
Antoine Vermette-Mike Fisher-Nick Foligno
Jarkko Ruutu-Chris Kelly-Chris Neil
Shean Donovan-Dean McAmmond-Jesse Winchester
Chris Phillips-Anton Volchenkov
Alexandre Picard-Filip Kuba
Jason Smith-Brian Lee
Fantasy Stud: Jason Spezza
Tough choice, but he usually gets more points because of the numberof assists he gets.
Watch out for: the Defense
Kuba is the only guy that might get you a decent amount of points.
