Round 2: Defeated Espen Knutsen 142-28
Round 3: Defeated Geoff Sanderson 96-50

Man, I love both of these guys. They are probably the two "early" CBJ players that resonated with me the most. I went with Vyborny, simply because I really would have loved to have seen his career arc play out with more talent and in the more "wide open" NHL post lockout. Sanderson gave this franchise some early cache with his scoring, but Vyborny could have been their first "lifer" had he just had a chance with a little more talent around him early on. - Dan P.

My first ever favorite blue Jacket was Vyborny - Keezus G

Shelley:

Round 2: Defeated Rostislav Klesla 131-31
Round 3: Defeated Ron Tugnutt 122-33
