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 hopefully I won't be finished too late into the season.
Pittsburgh Penguins 2008-09 Projected Lineup
Ruslan Fedotenko-Sidney Crosby-Miroslav Satan
Pascal Dupuis-Evgeni Malkin-Petr Sykora
Matt Cooke-Jordan Staal-Tyler Kennedy
Mike Zigomanis-Maxime Talbot-Eric Godard
Brooks Orpik-Kris Letang
Alex Goligoski-Hal Gill
Rob Scuderi-Mark Eaton
Fantasy Stud: Sidney Crosby
Do I really have to explain this?
Watch out for: Ruslan Fedotenko
Everyone expects a big season from him because he is playing with Crosby, but that experiment is already over.
