Kukla's Korner Hockey

A Whole New NHL

from Dave Lozo of NHL.com,

It took six hours, 15 people and 5 large cheese pizzas to get it done, but we drafted 690 hockey players to fill out 30 NHL rosters, and here they are.

To follow along with the order of the draft, just start with Edmonton Oilers in the first round, scroll down to the Boston Bruins, then scroll back up. The Bruins made the first pick in the second round in this snake draft.


Tell me, do you like your current NHL roster or the new roster selected by NHL.com?

The Wings roster made my skin crawl.

Zetterberg and Franzen on the Stars makes me vomit.

No kidding. It’s like we swapped GMs with the Islanders or something. What an awful awful roster.

Stars, Canes, Habs, Sabers look like the best builds. But some of them, Wings included, are a bit mystifying.  Glad we’ve got competent management.

Oh god. The line combinations are even worse.

Oof.  Seeing Patrick Kane at the top of that list is a real kick to the dick.

This made me throw up in my mouth a little.


A lot.

That Wings roster is horrible. I’m not clicking on the line combinations link!

Yes, a horrible Wings team.  Not just horrible, but also injury-prone.

I think they forgot to mention the beverages they were drinking or other illicit substances they were abusing when they did this…how else can you explain that Wings roster?

If Tick Tock ever ended up with a roster that even remotely resembled what these idiots came up with he’d be ridden out of town on a rail. And I’d personally apply the tar and feathers.

Nonsense like this “exercise” is why we have real GMs in the NHL.
