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".

Nathan Weselake, aka The Puck Pastor, is a real life pastor currently employed at a church in Portage, Mb. In his first year of fantasy hockey, the winner of the pool was the guy who took a rookie named Teemu Selanne with the last pick (with the second last pick Nathan took Mark Lamb). Nathan acknowledges the obvious role statistics play in managing a fantasy team but is most interested in addressing factors closer to the heart of why people love fantasy sports in the first place. So, his column will occasionally wander away from pure statistical analysis and offer a slightly different fantasy spin. Find Nathan on Twitter @puckpastor.
