Re-kindling the magic?

Alright, I am a die hard Rangers fan. My basement is full of hundreds of peices of memorabillia. And when I look at memories from the 94 cup year, I think yeah it would be great to see Brian Leetch wear a Rangers Jersey just one more time. Watch him skate out in the true blue for one last season. But the reality is, it will hurt the Rangers more then help.

Dangerous Dion

Scouting defenseman is one of the most difficult tasks a fantasy hockey manager has each season. The reasoning is pretty simple: an average defenseman will never be as productive for your fantasy squad as the typical forward in terms of goals and assists. Does one risk a high draft pick on a blueliner who might score 70 points or take a forward instead who will likely score 90? I don’t know the answer to this question (and even if I did I probably wouldn’t post it) but I do know that Dion Phaneuf is possibly the top fantasy defenseman in hockey, after only playing 1 season in the NHL.
