michigan_6Imagine coaching a team made up of just players that are natives of Michigan. David at IllegalCurve.com today presented his “Team Michigan” roster, which, of course, includes Boston Bruins goaltender Tim Thomas and defenseman Matt Hunwick.

It’s kind of surprising to learn that Michigan actually edged Minnesota for most current players in the NHL. While Dan is right that his squad might struggle to find offense, any team with a defense corps featuring Hunwick, Brian Rafalski, Matt Greene and Tim Gleason could play for me.
