Another NHL season is finally underway, which means another fantasy hockey season. Some friends from the old "NHL Connect" days and I held our draft last night. I love these guys and gals because we have so much fun! Some of my friends are pretty serious about this and out to win the league, but most of us use this as an excuse to socialize a little more during the season.
I've drafted teams based on a variety of criteria (where they played juniors, how players look in suits, etc.). This year, I decided to draft on age. My plan didn't succeed entirely, because others grabbed certain players before I could, but all in all, I think I came up with a pretty interesting team.
Without further ado, I give you: OLD DOGS, YOUNG PUPS

The NHL season gets underway next weekend, following months of quibbling over a new CBA. I don't have much to say about this- it's been thoroughly covered from all sides by much better writers than I.

Columbus Blue Jackets
Detroit Red Wings
Los Angeles Kings
New Jersey Devils
New York Islanders
New York Rangers
San Jose Sharks
St. Louis Blues
Tampa Bay Lightning
