The Hockey Team #1

Now it seems that we’re playing against an entire Hockey Team. First things first, what should the team be called: the Kyoto Flames? the IPCC Heat? the Blades? the Fever?

I thought it would be fun to think up lines for the hockey team. I’ve toyed with different ideas. Do you put the grizzled veterans – say, Jacoby and Hughes – on defence. Or do you keep the main lines together – Mann, Bradley and Hughes on one line; Jones, Briffa and Osborn on another? How do you work in the "rookie", Rutherford? Who plays goal? Do you make up a tree ring line? Is Rutherford et al [2005] – coauthors Mann, Bradley, Hughes, Jones, Briffa, Osborn – their power play? What about their uniforms – have they been chosen yet?

I’m a little worried about their skating skills. It looks like Mann can skate backwards, but what about Hughes? So many decisions, so little time.

UPDATE: For a name, how about the "Red Noise". We’re also having some difficult coaching decisions: none of the players want to play right wing.
