Draft Day 2012: The Fantasy Take

Friday’s draft came and went with no Rick Nash or Roberto Luongo trade… yet. For those inevitable trades to occur there’s always the free agent frenzy period and the weeks following. In other words, hockey player news during the summer seems to happen in large doses that force us into information overload, followed by long periods of dry spells which include delusional excitement over the signings of the Danny Syvrets and Brad Winchesters of the hockey world.
