So, hubby is running a Yahoo Fantasy NHL league again this year, and he wants me to join.
I'm not sure that's such a good idea.
I joined the league last year, and it was a blast. I got to trash talk his co-workers and learn a lot more about the NHL. I even managed to draft many of my beloved Predators for my team.
It is for the sake of the Predators, though, that I may not participate this year. Last season a large percentage of my fantasy players ended up injured in the real league. Apparently, I'm a fantasy hockey jinx.
Let's take a look at last year's Nashvegas Starcats (my team) roster, shall we?
Darcy Hordichuk -- October: torn rib cartilage (I traded him before the end of the season. Sorry, Darcy.)
Jason Arnott -- November through December: knee injury; March: Flu
Phillipe Boucher -- January: upper body injury; February: lower body injury;
Jere Lehtinen -- November: Leg injury; December: Flu; April: Lower body injury
Marek Malik -- December: strained groin; January through February: Shoulder strain
Alexander Radulov -- December: Upper body injury
Kimmo Timonen -- February through March: Upper body injury
Jordin Tootoo -- December: Flu; February: Hip injury
Shea Weber -- February: sore jaw
Ryan Whitney -- April: groin
Marek Zidlicky -- January: Flu; March: Upper body injury
Tomas Vokoun -- November through January: Thumb injury
I suppose I could sign up this year and only draft non-Predator players, but where's the fun in that?
