Not a fan of the goaltending tandem. Personally, I just think Kipper and Broduer are too old to really take a disproportionate amount of their team's starts AND put up the kind of numbers they're known for. Varlamov could be a good pick, but just too many question marks for that team as a whole for me.

Zajac is months away and really, last season was such a bomb, I'm not sure I would have touched him even if he was healthy.

After the draft, I IRd Zajac and Crosby and picked up 2 guys I thought would blow Seguin and Voracek.

Pronger at 82? I know there was significantly better defensive options available in the 7th round.

Sorry bagh, you asked......
That's cool man. I asked for a critique. I'm not one of those guys that posts their teams to get a pat on the back. I took a lot of risks in this draft, I don't deny it. The only thing I didn't know about was Zajac.

The rest I made a calculated gamble. I am relying on my D and LW to get me the secondary catagories (PIMS, Hits and chip in on SOG and +/-) My 2 C (Spezza and Zetterberg) to hold down the scoring with Kovalchuk and Gaborik providing support.

As for the goalies, another calculated risk. There were 10 goalies selected before Kipper and it was Brodeur or Backstrom or Reimer. Again another goalie run in between. I didn't stress about goalies like I did in years past as Goalie stats are only 5 catagories whereas Forward stats are 7.

After the draft I picked up 2 guys I thought would blow up in Voracek and Seguin and IRd Crosby and Zajac.
