Fantasy Hockey Coach - Hockey Pool and Keeper Hockey Advice - 2012 NHL Entry Draft with TSN

  • 2012 NHL Entry Draft with TSN

    http://www.fantasyhockeycoach.comI look forward to watching the NHL draft every year and there is no better coverage then what TSN provides. With the exception of one commentator you can usually count on great analysis of the draft from TSN.

    Player comparable are so helpful to hockey pool players as it is impossible to watch every prospect out there, so seeing a comparable gives people in keeper pools an idea of what to expect from a player. With that being said here is the first round of the 2012 NHL Entry Draft with the players who TSN said was comparable along with their projection for that player.
