Cage Match 147
Despite never having laced up a pair of skates (except for those of his two young sons) and growing up in Red Sox crazed Massachusetts, Rick Roos has been a huge hockey fan nearly all of his life. Inspired by often wearing a Canadiens jersey to the old Boston Garden (it's a long story...) and living to tell about it, Rick started to join fantasy hockey leagues back in the 90s, where he found himself waiting eagerly by a fax machine for weekly stats updates. He has since been in - and won - leagues featuring elite fantasy hockey writers. In real life, Rick is an attorney, which made him the perfect choice to write his previous "Holding Court" column on DobberHockey, where he debated both sides of a fantasy hockey issue and rendered a verdict for readers to debate. Now he will do the same for "Cage Match".

Alternating every Saturday, Anthony Lancione and Marty Kwiaton give you their picks for the day's NHL schedule - which teams will win and why. They'll break down each team and give you their reasons for going one way or the other - with impressive results.
If NHL teams can call up a player from the minors to fill in for an injury/absence, why can't we at DobberHockey do the same thing? Some great hockey minds contribute to the PG Advised. So when we need content due to a sick or absent columnist, we pluck a recent one from the forum. This is an excellent audition for any up-and-coming writers who think they have the insight and skills to get into this business. Contribute, get noticed, and who knows? Perhaps we'll call you up from the minors next!
