Changing teams and fantasy hockey.

The move from Atlanta to Winnipeg has had me thinking over the last couple of months - how tied down am I to the Avalanche? And what would happen with my allegiances in the unlikely event of the Avs getting moved from Denver to become, say, the Las Vegas Indians (we rob you twice - only once on the ice)?

But still - very very happy.

Let’s take a look at what we’ve learned from training camp and what to expect in the upcoming pre-season games. Did we get an answer to the questions posed heading into training camp? Which players should you keep an eye on this season, and since I’m putting some teams together myself - who might be a good fit on your fantasy team?

The answer: none. We’re the second worst team in the league.
