FANTASY NHL: I Love Hockey and Don't Care That You Hate It

Before I get into the hockey post, I will be attending the Michigan at PSU game with Kenny Bloggins. We will update with our experiences there ASAP. Back to the post:

I'm the only American (that isn't foreign) that cares about Hockey, so I'm just going to throw out two names that will help you win your league:

Anze Kopitar: The kid can play and he's getting major minutes. He was the 11th pick in the 2005 draft and only fell that far because he's from Yugoslavia. Not exactly a strong hockey country... or strong in anything for that matter. Anyway, he's getting 20+ minutes a night.

Alexander Semin: Without a doubt, he was the NHL 2k6 MVP. First, he's got a nasty shot. Second, many drunken Swingers-esque hockey games were played and it led to many intoxicated semen-in-your-face jokes. He's a second line LW, behind possibly the best sniper in the league, Alexander Ovechkin. Teams gameplan around Ovechkin, so Semin will have benefit of dealing with the opponent's third defensive pairing.

Actually Anze Kopitar is from Slovenia, Yugoslavia doesn't exist since 1991.
And yes - Slovenia isn’t exactly a strong hockey country but I can tell you it has some other advantages…
