The first regular season NationDraft is coming to an end, which means we’re ready to introduce our mid-season NationDraft! This is your chance to put your failures of the first draft behind you, and pick a whole new team. The first half of the season is behind us and we have a pretty good idea of who the scoring leaders are and how the league is trending. If you’re one of the lucky ones who nailed their picks the first time, you can pick the same team and just make a couple adjustments. Then you’ll be on your way to one of our awesome grand prizes!
I’ll have you all know that I am the ultimate fantasy hockey champion* and that I challenge you all to take me out. NationHQ is full of the most competitive people on the planet and I’m sick of losing to all of them. So I need somebody reading this article right now to beat TheNationDan at his own game because he’s too good at this stuff. So don’t wait to enter your team and head over to www.nationdrafts.com to enter. Don’t forget to comment on this article with your team name so I can put you on my watch list!
*3126th place in the regular season draft and 2-13 record in my Yahoo fantasy league.
This is a classic box format fantasy draft. Once you sign up, we’ll give you an assortment of boxes with players in each of them. Your job is to pick the player in each box who you think is going to dominate amongst the others. Easy, right? Me being the most un-opinionated person in the world had some trouble choosing between a few players. For example, one of the boxes has both Steven Stamkos and Sidney Crosby in them. My first pick would always be Sidney Crosby, however, Stamkos has the hot team right now and Sid has been struggling as of late. WHO TO CHOOSE!!?
I should warn you that we threw a few grenades in some of the boxes so make sure the player you’re choosing isn’t on the IR or scratched! If you’re not digging one of the players you chose don’t worry, we offer one trade per week so you can drop any losers you don’t care about.
The best part about this draft is that it’s completely FREE! And we’ve got some kick ass prizes to give away for it as well.
No Nationdraft is complete without prizes, and thanks to our friends at Londonderry Dodge we’re hooking you up with some great ones! Considering the draft is FREE to enter, if you live in Northern Alberta you shouldn’t have any excuse not to sign up!
