Presenting your 2014 Boston Blazers

Blazers

As I have done the previous two years, here’s what could be the tenth NLL team, made up entirely of players not currently on an NLL team. These are players who were released, are on practice rosters, or are otherwise unaccounted for on the final rosters released today. It does not include those on the IR, PUP, or holdout lists, or those who have retired. As the NLL teams had to do, I came up with 20 players, and because there were some pretty decent players cut from this list, I added a practice squad as well.

This is, quite honestly, a pretty damned good team. Sure, there are lots of veterans and players that might have lost a step, and they may not match up against the 2007 Knighthawks or 2005 Rock, but when you have teams barely over .500 winning the Championship, a team like this could do very well. In a ten team league, I doubt I’d be picking the Blazers to finish last and they could easily make the playoffs. It’s hard to believe that every player here is unemployed.
