Managed to set up a virtual ice hockey team on the very eve of the NHL season. While I don’t treat this noweher near as seriously as the twin fantasy football teams, reports will be coming in every now and then.
Drafted (autopicked) at #2, and took two centers on the first two rounds: Sidney Crosby and Joe Thornton. The next two players were goalies, and the two following ones defensemen. So it took a long while to pick up any wingers. A lot of the players are utterly unfamiliar, and I’m sure the waiver-wire will be busy in the league as last year’s comets will be traded for players that actually are productive this season. Marc Savard is still suffering post-concussion symptoms and lands immediately on the injury reserve.
No finns taken in the sixteen draft rounds. No swedes either.
