How do you count the 20 players to the OV thing?

I know that I will count 2 goalies and 6 defenceman but what about those 12 forwards? Can I pick any 12 forwards on my team or do I have to have 4LW, 4RW and 4 center?

I can trade for a player that will put me at 1320 but that would mean I only have 3 centers and five RW or LW, would that be possible?

Simply put it comes down to who you normally play in your lineup. Ie if you play 7 defencemen than you can count them (7 max no 9 dmen rosters please). By default you have to have 3 of each forward position but after that any mix that you REALLY use as your regular 20 man lineup is fine. Injured starters do count in the 20.

Remember I see the lineups almost daily so I generally know who's playing and who's scratched or on the farm.
