Every year throughout the offseason, Yahoo! Sports blog Puck Daddy look for other sources of content to try and make the time pass a little quicker. This year, they turned to their readers and asked for any team-specific blogs to take part in a project for the month of August. Naturally, Ariana and myself thought this would be a great opportunity and sent in our e-mail. What do you know, WE GOT PICKED!
The project is “National Hockey League of Nations” where guest writers from all thirty teams were asked to compile an all-time roster consisting of the BEST representation for different countries. This is what our guidelines looked like:
Finland:The Rest of The World (i.e. any country not listed here specifically):Every player that ever played for your team is eligible.It’s completely your criteria, as long as you can justify it. We don’t expect every list to follow the same ones. In the end, it’s your opinion and that of your collaborators.
In looking at our choices, there is no doubt there will be some debates, based on the fact that Boston is an Original 6 team that has had over 900 players walk through the doors. Ariana and myself based all of our decisions solely on their performance on the ice (ex: Thomas). So, go over to Puck Daddy, read our choices then come back here to debate/discuss how you think we did. We want to hear from you!
