So I know what you all are thinking….wasn’t your fantasy hockey draft supposed to be Monday? Well yes loyal readers….it was supposed to be Monday but it happened last night. We had to postpone because of lack of teams and then something called the American League Division Series, more specifically the Yankees games.
With the 10th pick in the draft, No Puck Bunnies Here chose:
Defense (or Defence for my friends to the North):
Christian Ehrhoff– Vancouver Canucks
Zach Bogosian– Atlanta Thrashers
Marc Staal– New York Rangers
Dustin Byfuglien– Atlanta Thrashers
Jack Johnson– Los Angeles Kings
Yes…Lundqvist was my first pick. Kovalchuk was my second. It was between Ilya and his former Atlanta Thrashers teammate and current San Jose Shark, Dany Heatly.
I’m pretty happy about my picks. Would I have liked Alex Ovechkin? Sure. But he was the 1st overall pick. Many of my players also play multiple positions…well Left or Right Wing. BUT, Dustin Byfuglien plays Defense and Right Wing.
For those of you who follow me on Twitter, taking Derek Stepan should be no surprise. I am a huge fan of his even though he is only a rookie. Earlier this year he was the captain of the U.S. World Junior’s Gold Medal winning team. He also played for my brother’s Alma mater, University of Wisconsin.
As I suspected in my last post, I am the only female in my ten team fantasy hockey league. Time for me to take on the boys….
