#105 – Niklas Kronwall to the Edmonton Oilers (selected by Antony Ta)

Kronwall Hits
I don’t care what you think of Kronwall: he’s the full package of skill and power.

Cap Hit: $3,000,000

Niklas Kronwall has taken major steps to being more complete since his first few seasons, and now he is not only an offensive threat but a defensive threat as well. Some people say he leaves his feet. Some people say its the follow through. It’s certainly not a Scott Stevens momentum machine – it’s pure power.

At a cap hit lower than Brad Stuart, he’s pretty good deal, I think.

CLS Re-draft

Cycle Like The Sedins is doing a Fantasy Draft of the NHL and all the teams’ GMs are represented by a blogger(s) from each city. Yours truly is representing the Edmonton Oilers and I’m planning on drafting either a shut-down guy or a 1st line RW next.

The winner is determined on a full season and playoffs simulation of the new EA Sports game NHL 10 coming out in September.
