Back before the season started, we put out a call for anyone who wanted to join a joint HockeyPunx/Up The Pucks! fantasy hockey league. We quickly filled up our 20 open spots (Yahoo’s max) with various readers, listeners, bloggers, band members, and radio personnel.
That wasn’t surprising, seeing as how awesome and wildly popular both we and Up The Pucks! are, but what was surprising and fun to watch evolve is how everyone immediately started using punk rock-hockey puns as team names. Check out who’s who in our list of big names and influencial people in our league, as well as the celever team names everyone came up with. After that, check out week 1 matchup results.
