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.
Phoenix Coyotes 2008-09 Projected Lineup
Peter Mueller-Olli Jokinen-Shane Doan
Viktor Tikhonov-Martin Hanzal-Mikkel Boedker
Daniel Carcillo-Kyle Turris-Daniel Winnik
Brian McGratton-Steve Reinprecht-Todd Fedoruk
Ed Jovanovski-Derek Morris
Zbynek Michalek-Kurt Sauer
David Hale-Keith Yandle
Fantasy Stud: Olli Jokinen
Is this finally the year that this consistent forward makes the playoffs?
Watch out for: Daniel Carcillo
Managed 13 goals while leading the league in PIM’s last year as a rookie, don’t count on him scoring as much this season.
