Franchise Name: Rock Republic

Status: Original Owner, won bid for auto-picked roster. We love our young roster, so we decided not to enter the redraft.

Player Personnel

Hometown: We are from rural Newfoundland communities:

Favourite NHL Team(s): Donny — For bad or for worse Habs fan

Paul — Diehard Leafs fan

Kyle — Also a poor Leafs fan

Dylan — Calgary fan for some reason

Favourite NHL Player(s) Past: Donny — I’m a Habs fan but also a closet Avalanche fan and always loved Joe Sakic and Patrick Roy. Saku Koivu, Claude Lemieux and Mark Recchi round out my top five.

Paul — Tomas Kaberle, Stevie Yzerman, Chris Pronger, Raymond Bourque and Peter Forsberg.

Kyle — Kyle has been a Leafs fan his entire life. So many of his favourite players, past and present, have connections to the blue and white. Mats Sundin and Darcy Tucker were players that he idolized as a kid.

Dylan — As a fan who started watching in the early 2000s, Dylan was immediately attracted to the Flames because of their logo/uniforms and Jarome Iginla, who is his favourite player of all time. Once he started following the team, he realized Miikka Kiprusoff was pretty cool too. Some of his most notable Cup final memories as a kid involved the Red Wings where Dylan paid special attention to Pavel Datsyuk and Nicklas Lidstrom. As a Flames fan, it’s hard to admit, but Martin St. Louis was pretty special as well.

Favourite NHL Player(s) Present: Donny — Long story short, my top five would have to be Carey Price, Sidney Crosby, Shea Weber, Brayden Schenn and Dylan Larkin.

Paul — A hardcore Leafs fan with a soft spot for Swedes. Paul’s favourite player ever is Phil “the thrill” Kessel just because of their very similar approach to life, physical build and habits. Current other favourites are Auston Matthews, Ryan O’Reilly and Elias Pettersson.

Kyle — Now it’s Auston Matthews, Freddie Andersen and the newest top prospect Rasmus Sandin. Kyle also loves to see the league’s top talent do well. Sidney Crosby, the league’s best for years; Connor McDavid, the present/future league leader; and Alexander Ovechkin, arguably the best sniper of all time, to name a few.

Dylan — Current Flames that Dylan enjoys watching are Matthew Tkachuk (his favourite current player), Sean Monahan and Mark Giordano. Dylan’s secret other favourite team is the Bruins, which brings an appreciation for Patrice Bergeron and Charlie McAvoy. Some of Dylan’s other favourite players to watch today include Mark Scheifele, Nathan MacKinnon, Sidney Crosby, Jack Eichel, Seth Jones, Roman Josi, and Alex Ovechkin.
