Introducing the 2009-10 Rosen’s Nosens!

Being relatively new to hockey, I hadn’t ever seriously considered starting my own fantasy team. But when MAKO from Rangers Report started a league specifically for us Boneheads, I figured I was ready to give it a try. Thus was born The Sam Rosen’s Nosens!

We had our live draft last night to distract us, fortunately, from the Baby Rangers losing the first game of the preseason. And I think I did pretty well! For the most part I stuck to my drafting strategy (can you find it?), departing only for my hometown hero, a few others, and when I had no choice.

Without further ado, the Nosens:

Center:
Dubinsky (first round pick)
Pavelski
Grabovski

Left Wing:
Ponikarovsky
Korpikoski (AKA The Korpedo)

Right Wing:
Brown (Ithaca pride)
Byfuglien (henceforth known as Byfuglienski)
Orr

Defense:
Rafalski
Goligoski
Wisniewski
Rivet (my only Sabre)

Goal:
Valiquette
Niittymaki

Bench:
Brind’Amour (AKA Rod the Bod)
Umberger
Modano
Langkow (who?)

Reflections: I think I should have tried to draft a goalie much sooner. Would have loved Lundqvistski, obviously, and Khabibulinski would have been acceptable too. Nothing against Vally or Niiittymakiski, it’s just that, combined, they won 20 games last year. To be honest, I’m fully aware that this is a last place team… with some first place names.

Lets go Nosens!

  1. Pornikarovsky? In Russian, that’s a cross between “porn” and “cow.” Byfuglien? Double the fugly? I know I know nothing about hockey, but I’m just so entertained right now.
