Pros: Like most Swedes, I'm loyal, and hard-working. Plus, always exciting with an European to support your team, right?

Cons: I will probably mostly sleeping during the Playoffs, but I will cheer for the team in my dreams.

2. Is there a list of participants yet? I need to start scouting.

Last year's draft was not very good and some teams got hosed, but it was the first time, more care will be put into this year's, I promise

We must study the Las Vegas team identity reveal party very carefully to ensure we are up to the league standards this time around.

In our (#hfblues) defense, you were long gone by the time our first pick rolled around

But after a hard fought battle with management, the burnt ends request shall be granted.

Again, assuming we make it and get favorable draft positioning

Pros: I'm perfect in every way.

Cons: People become jealous of my ability to put them down.

I got a western team on the side, the Jerts, who are definitely positively going to make it though, so you have to share me with them. That's a minus. But the attitude expressed within this paragraph is probably a plus.

I consider the IIHF Ice-Hockey World Championships, which will be played May 5th to 21st this year, to be the upmost echelon of hockey, and the tournament will divide my attention, which is a minus. That means I will also have a serious conflict of interests if you have any decent Finns in the roster who I would want to be freed up, but it's a plus if you like to watch that kind of thing. If you have crappy Finns I will wholeheartedly wish you will continue. I use words like 'echelon'; that's a plus. I'm not sure if I know what 'echelon' means, so that's a minus.

I'm GMT+2 and have the habit of sleeping at night which somewhat hampers participation in live GDTs. But, I work night shift at least 2 nights out of 10, and the nature of my job allows for watching hockey, and I am not stranger to switching for night shifts or agreeing to do overtime so I can watch hockey, which technically means someone else is paying me to watch Your Team play hockey, and you can't walk past that kind of windfall in the world we're living.

Back in the 90's my mom at some point of time bought me a Kings backpack, a Lightning cap and a Sharks t-shirt, so if you're any of those teams we have common history to initially build on.

I think Negan is doing good job in adverse conditions, and has managed to build closest thing resembling a state after a zombie apocalypse. Rick Grimes is only good in getting everyone who's not Rick Grimes killed.

I have an okay +/- and I have had a good season this far and I think I should be picked 1st overall in this Draft.


Let's laugh together through the tears.
This post...wow. This post is da real MVP.

Can you write a poem about Poutine? Because I bet that would seal the deal.

Cons - Conspire with Rangers...

Here is my so called resume....

I have a .70 Post Per Day average, which is decent for an undrafted HFBoards member, but I feel I bring a lot more to the table than just posts. I make everyone on the team board do less better.

I am a sabre and hurricane follower, in which, people don't understand. **** em, I can't help where I'm from and who I root for.

I will bring my unquestionable intangibles to whatever team takes a gamble on me.

I will nice and sarcastic to your team's members.

I'll also comment on how Aho and Slavin are better than anyone on your team, unless TOR or EDM draft me, then all hail McJesus and Matthews.

I see this in my future as well...
