    What's your first pick for a Hockey Pool?

    I just buy the McKeen magazine for my traditional Hockey Pool. I didn't read it already but i am interested by your opinion: What is your first pick this year for a hockey pool? I will try to analyze the situation and tell you later mine.

    Sure the season will be one of the most interesting for a pooler because of the number of change in the team and in the rules.

    Gentlemen Pooler, Start your ranking!

    According to McKeen's Magazine the top 20 is as following:

    1- Joe Thornton, Bos: 101
    2- Jarome Iginla, Cal: 100
    3- Brad Richards, TB:________ 97
    4- Daniel Alfredsson. Ott: 95
    5- Ilya Kovalchuk, Atl:________92
    6- Peter Forsberg, Phi: 92
    7- Markus Naslund, Van:______91
    8- Pavel Datsiuk, Det: 90
    9- Rick Nash, CBJ:____________88
    10- Marian Hossa, Ott now Atl: 87
    11- Alex Tanguay, Col:________ 87
    12- Vincent Lacavalier, TB: 85
    13- Zigmund Palffy, Pit:_______ 84
    14- Dany Heatley, Atl now Ott: 84
    15- Robert Lang, Det: 84
    16- Milan Hedjuk, Col:_________83
    17- Todd Bertuzzi, Van: 83
    18- Milan Gaborik, Min:_______ 82
    19- Mark Recchi, Pit: 81
    20- Jason Spezza, Ott: 81

    Underated: Markus Naslund should be the first one or the second.
    Dany Heatley a talented one surrounded by talent
    Martin St-Louis is 21st with 80 points

    Overrated: Brad Richards should be more in the 80 range.
    Robert Lang: he only take advantage of the other's talent
    Rick Nash: he's very good but almost alone in Columbus

    Rough, Kovalev didn't make it :P

    To be safe, I'd choose Naslund or Forsberg.

    My first pick in an online draft recently was Brodeur....with the new rules, everyone has a good chance to score....defense and goaltending will be key

    Nash

    I think Nash is a solid choice if Zherdev is as good as he can be.

    Could be interesting Peter Pan. Count me in if it works. If a good group of people join, it can make another thrill on this site (like i need that!).

    Regnad, the hockey's leader are as idiot as baseball's one. But baseball has a better base in USA like it is part of their history that help. Being a "USA National Sport" operating in USA help you better economically than to be "Canadian National Sport" operating mostly in USA. I was a baseball total fan in the 80's but i am not able to watch a single inning now. And it's not because of the Expo.

    I think Forsberg will be injured for some (or worse) most of the season and look for Spezza to have a breakout year.
