The Best 16-Man Fantasy Hockey Roster Of All Time" and it's a pretty stacked team with some pretty unbelievable seasons since the expansion era of 1967. Using the same idea, we want to see what team we could put together since the 2004-05 Lockout as it is more current and the word lockout is being tossed around frequently these days. So using the same format NHL.com used, we'll use the Yahoo! fantasy hockey generic hockey roster set-up (2 C, 2 LW, 2 RW, 4 D, 2 G, 4 BN) and statistics (G, A, PIM, plus-minus, PPG, SOG for skaters; W, G.A.A., SV%, SO for goalies) to determine the best 16-man fantasy hockey team roster since 2005.

There are many great hockey card sets out there, but one of our favourites is the 1992-93 Pinnacle Sidelines subset that profiled nine NHLers and some of their off ice hobbies. Part One was great featuring Eric Lindros, Randy Wood, and Dale Hunter, and Part Two of our showcase is no different featuring some of the best (worst?) retro hockey cards from the 1990s.1991 NHL Entry Draft, but he was also a Tractor Chicken champion on his three-wheeler. Falloon was a pretty big bust who would be traded twice in his career and placed on waivers once. Ending his career to nicknames such as Fat Balloon for his poor conditioning and round shape, Falloon would get a chance to be closer to his family farm as he joined his hometown Foxwarren Falcons of the little-known North Central Hockey League and disappeared into hockey obscurity.

2007 Super Series which featured an eight game series between the Canadian and Russian U20 teams, you know we're in for some great junior hockey. Canada absolutely domianted that series with a record of 7-0-1, but expect this years matchup to be much closer.

occasionally show off their athleticism on offdays. So what Olympic sports would some NHLers potentially compete in? Take a look.
