Draft Phil Kessel First Overall in Fantasy Hockey
Mark my words, Phil Kessel will not only pot 50 goals, he could very well reach 60 or more. Kessel has the speed on the wing and when paired with Sidney Crosby, forget about it.
I am all about American born hockey players, however I was never high on Kessel. But now I am, he lost 15 pounds in the off-season and ready to re-establish is career and reputation. He’s finally out of Toronto and on a winning team, now is his chance to redeem himself.
The Metropolitan division is stacked. Three great American born players come into the Metro. Phil Kessel (Penguins), Brandon Saad (Blue Jackets) and TJ Oshie (Capitals). This division will be a force in the Eastern Conference, and most likely throughout the NHL divisions.
While you’re drafting Phil Kessel first overall, be sure to pick up Brandon Saad second overall, then go for Steve Mason of the Philadelphia Flyers. Mason has been the back bone of the Flyers, and he is only going to continue being their back bone.
Those three players right there will carry your fantasy team throughout the whole season. And if you’re lucky enough, you can draft Victor Hedman. He is in his prime and I am fully expecting either the Tampa Bay Lightning or Pittsburgh Penguins making it to the Stanley Cup Finals.
Oh, do not forget to draft Connor McDavid. This kid is the real deal, in a couple of years, Alex Ovechkin will be forgotten about.
The Cup will come back to the Eastern Conference this year. Bet on it.
