Hello again! I just had an ESPN NHL Fantasy draft last night and ended up with a pretty solid team (results after the jump). I'd like WIIM's opinions on my 2nd ever NHL Fantasy draft. Thanks!! The team name is: The KronWALL of Doom. JUMP!!
1 (2). Pavel Datsyuk - A little homerish pick here to start off but I think he'll bounce back to normal form.
2 (23). Jarome Iginla - Best available this point plus he was the only name I could recognize
3 (26). Henrik Zetterberg - Another homer pick
4 (47). Marian Hossa - Yeah I took the Bandwagoner Mercenary, unfortunately. He's the only Hawk I'll have to root for this year
5 (50). The Captain - Homer pick but still couldn't believe he was here for the taking in Round 5.
6 (71). John Tavares - Had him last year and he did some good things for me
7 (74). Jimmy Howard - Another homer pick and breakout candidate, Possible star.
8 (95). Alex Tanguay - Iginla was getting lonely being surrounded by all these Wings so I picked his buddy Alex.
10 (119). Niklas Kronwall - the namesake of the team and pretty good D-man himself
11 (122). Joe Pavelski - Had to pick up a token shark and apparently he was BSA
13 (146). Ondrej Pavelec - The token Jet on my team
14 (167). Joni Pitkanen - see Marchand minus the partying tale
15 (170). Wayne Simmonds - Yeah I felt bad for him because of his incident
17 (194). Jose Theodore - 3rd Goalie who won't play much on my team.
