Toronto Maple Leafs 2008-09 Fantasy Hockey Preview

Adam GreuelSenior Analyst IOctober 21, 2008

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.
