TSN Fantasy Draft

"This is the only fantasy you'll have that involves the five of us... collectively... all at once" - James Duthie

TSN had their fantasy draft today. I'd say that the strangest pick was Keith Jones, who got to go first overall and took ... wait for it... MARIAN HOSSA?! Anyway this is an annual event amongst the TSN analysts. They go for a pretty simple points system. 1 point for every NHL point, goalies get a point for a win, 2 for a shutout.

they choose 4 forwards, 2 defence, 1 rookie, 1 goaltender. And i've decided to draft a team myself after the four finished:

Keith Jones
1. Marian Hossa
8. Pavel Datsyuk
9. Niklas Lidstrom
16. Corey Perry
17. Derek Roy
29. Kyle Turris
25. Scott Neidermeyer
32. Jean-Sebastien Giguere

Pierre McGuire
2. Sidney Crosby
7. Mike Green
10. Vincent Lecavalier
15. Dany Heatley

18. Andrei Markov
23. Evgeni Nabokov
26. Jason Spezza
31. Drew Doughty
