I prefer a full roster, so around 23 players.

4x3 offence
3x2 defence
2 goalies

3 on the bench

But I prefer even less keepers... 10 IMO is a bit much on a full roster. That's half of your defence core, your top two lines, AND your starting goaltender, seeing as prospects are usually protected anyways.

There's no hard choices, just changing/drafting your third and fourth line and 2 or 3 defencemen isn't enough IMO. Also, with less keepers, I find people tend to not go on "automatic" i.e. lose interest. There's more things to manage and look out for, new star players to draft, and keeping an eye on a much better FA pool at the end of the season.

I would like to suggest 7 keepers. That's 1 offensive line, 2 defencemen, and 1 goaltender, plus one other random player.
