Fantasy Hockey

Five bold predictions for the fantasy hockey season

Every year it happens. Some wild and unpredicted swings occur in the fantasy landscape that makes a few lucky teams the big winners of the season. Sometimes, you can be lucky, and quick enough, to grab these players off of the waiver wire before your mates get the chance. Other times, you simply tossed a late-round pick out there and it ended up winning you a championship.

While this is far from a scientifically-driven method, I'm going to take a few swings here today and showcase some players and teams that could defy the odds and end up paying massive dividends to your fantasy squad's success this year.

A reminder: These are bold predictions. They're not meant to look all that reasonable today and may look even less so in a few months. But they have the potential to happen. And on a sunny September day, there are worse things in life than potential.
