Fantasy Draft - 1st overall pick
 
Who should the Flyers draft with the 1st overall pick?

:flyers

Draft order was randomly generated.

DuckJet 11-26-2012 01:30 AM

Other. Mark Jankowski.

Come on man this should be a no brainer. There shouldn't be so many options.

Vankiller Whale 11-26-2012 01:35 AM

Crosby
Malkin
Stamkos

Is how it should start. No question in my mind.

Can you please post the entire draft order?

Can't take Crosby #1. He missed too many games last year to warrant that. The Pens might play safe with him and "shut him down" for a few games.

I'd go with H. Sedin.

Yes if your a fan who cares about nice stats, GMs whose priority is winning would pick:
Quick
Lundqvist
Rinne

InfinityIggy 11-26-2012 01:42 AM

I would take Stamkos. Best scorer in the league.

Goaltending is huge, don't get me wrong, and anyone who doesn't pick a goalie in the first round should take a goalie in the second.

But Crosby vs Quick? I'd rather have Crosby + Lehtonen/Howard/some other second round goalie than Quick + Jamie Benn or something.

I Hate Chris Butler 11-26-2012 01:56 AM

Malkin. I'd be hesitant to take Crosby 1st overall due to injury. I'd take Crosby only if Malkin, Giroux, and Stamkos were gone.

Crosby + Howard is good for stats but an elite goalie is good for winning playoff series

If Crosby didn't have health concerns this would be a no brainer. A good blueline can make both your forwards and your goalie look much better than they actually are, so I'm taking a defender. Has to be a young guy obviously, as he'll be the cornerstone of my franchise for the next 15 years hopefully, and one with the attitude/character you want your team to embody.

I'm going to go a bit off the board here and take Pietrangelo. One of the smartest players in the league already, great character to build around, awesome shutdown game, PPQB, and scored at a 75pt/82game pace in 2012.

Would take a center next, goalie in the 3rd round, and another center in the 4th, before filling out the roster with BPA's.

Can we post rules to this fantasy draft? Is this a single season sort of deal? How are stats weighted?

Or is this a redistribution of talent in the NHL sort of deal?

GFS 11-26-2012 02:19 AM

This is a redistribution of talent in the NHL sort of deal. All the players are placed into a pool and the GM builds their team from scratch. There aren't really any stats since the goal is to win the Stanley Cup.

PALE PWNR 11-26-2012 02:45 AM

Stamkos

WarriorOfGandhi 11-26-2012 03:00 AM

if the goal is to win a Cup I think I'd take Chara

ricky0034 11-26-2012 03:08 AM

would have went with Crosby even despite his health concerns because of the financial benefits of having Crosby

but since you explicitly said the goal is winning I chose to ignore the financial benefits of having Crosby and go with Malkin

**** Philadelphia.

LPH 11-26-2012 03:35 AM

Toews


think of the intagibles, that is the underrated stat in fantasy pools :D

Yea cause you're a GM right?

Get real

Crosby AINEC.

AJMHABS 11-26-2012 07:16 AM

Crosby easily.

gifted88 11-26-2012 09:58 AM

Voted Malkin. really close between him and Crosby.

KA BLAMO 11-26-2012 10:05 AM

The Cros.

laundryman 11-26-2012 10:26 AM

Stamkos

Legionnaire 11-26-2012 10:29 AM

I went with Quick, just over Lundqvist and Rinne.

Corey Perry* 11-26-2012 12:35 PM

Malkin is almost as good as Crosby, and doesn't have concussion problems. I pick him.
