The phrase “Fantasy Hockey” is especially cruel these days, when hockey itself is the fantasy. But we held the WUYS Fantasy Hockey League draft last night, and despite the lockout I still made my picks count. If we never get our game back, maybe we could just play some beach volleyball.
With an eye toward both winning and grooming, I’m going to go out on a limb and say my team is the best looking. I drafted…
Tazer’s boyish good looks and sheer force of will.
Nealmobile’s hair, wrist shot and inability to put on a button-down shirt. Which is like drafting all the points Malkin scores too.
This. Both parts. Didn’t even have to ask.
Bradley Cooper Ryane Clowe, in case we need an extra E or a water rescue.
Danny Briere’s perfection and all those damned playoff goals. I’m not sorry!
I got these two, since they were flirting on Twitter:
Including the way iCarly peers out from under his visor.
And MDZ because even though I hate NY sports teams, I’m an NY girl at heart. Plus Nash will need assists on his 200 goals.
My team always needs one Staal and one Ginger. Done and done.
I also got Doughty’s, um… well, Dawn’s love for him. Personally I think DD is overrated but his beard was aces.
Flower. Because sometimes you need a string of F-bombs or a ballerina spin.
Since we’re probably stuck with that volleyball game for a month or two, I also drafted the NHL 2012 Prom Court. They didn’t sign your yearbook, but you still think about them in homeroom.
Jeff Skinner’s intern-ness and celebration hugging skills.
Gabe Landeskog’s, um…
What was that?
Oh yeah. And his celebration falling skills.
Ryan Nugent-Hopkins’ hair (lookout Nealer) and sheer potential. (Same age as Gabe. Honest.)
Finally I drafted a chaperone to be in charge of this show:
Teemu has been in the league longer than Gabe & RNH have been alive. This could be his last year and I can’t let him go out like that.
Plus, someone has to buy these kids beer.
I’d say this team is a win whether or not they ever get to play a game. Apologies to anyone I yelled at during the draft… no, I take that back. You’re going down.
