Started a Winnipeg Fantasy Draft and am in my third season. This is my favorite team I have ever built/play with. I love the guys on this team and have so much fun playing games with this team I sim way less than normal.

I'm 54 games into the season and have a record of 36-15-3 which on the surface doesn't seem too impressive, but that's largely because Markstrom has been stinking it up for me (have Gibson who should be ready in a year or two though). Currently 2nd in the league, 1st in GF (by 22 goals, 3.76 GF/GP) and 7th in GAA.

The team is meshing offensively unlike any other I've ever built though... check out stats thus far:

Bartschi: 54 GP 17 G 51 A 68 P
Malkin: 54 GP 36 G 32 A 68 P
RNH: 54 GP 16 G 36 A 52 P
Ryan: 54 GP 22 G 29 A 51 P
JvR: 54 GP 13 G 24 A 37 P
Etem: 54 GP 16 G 20 A 36 P

That's my top 6 and my D isn't doing bad either:

Bogosian: 54 GP 6 G 27 A 33 P
Johnson: 54 GP 4 G 26 A 30 P
Morissey: 54 GP 5 G 20 A 25 P
Rundblad: 54 GP 10 G 13 A 23 P

Lineup:

Bartschi (87) - Malkin (91) - Ryan (85)
JvR (86) - RNH (88) - Etem (88)
Rattie (80) - Brassard (83) - Iginla (84)
Westin (79) - Lindberg (79) - Downie (80)

Rundblad (80) - Bogosian (87)
Elliott (77) - Morissey (84)
Kulikov (84) - Johnson (86)

Markstrom (85)
FPW (81)

Best part of this is it's only my 3rd year so almost all these guys have room to improve. On top of that I have a bunch of core players locked into great contracts:

Malkin @ 9.5M for 8 years
RNH @ 7.25M for 8 years
JvR @ $4.25M for 3 years
Johnson @ 4.355 for 3 years
Elliott at $1.85M for 6 years
Kulikov @ $4M for 6 years
Rundblad @ $3.450 for 8 years
Bogosian at $5.65M for 8 years
Markstrom @ $5.15 for 6 years

Have a great group of young guys coming up too, though I don't want to make too many adjustments to my roster if things keep going like this.

Lazar (4.5* 74 OVR)
Mackinnon (5* 63 OVR)
Faksa (4.5* 63 OVR)
Reinhart (4.5* 60 OVR)
Schwratz (4* 71 OVR)
Shinkaruk (4.5* 63 OVR)
Teubert (4* 79 OVR)
Ellis (4* 77 OVR)
Gormley (4.5* 75 OVR)
Petrovic (4* 73 OVR)
Marincin (4* 70 OVR)
Morrow (4* 69 OVR)
Hamilton (4* 69 OVR)
Ekblad (4.5* 62 OVR)
Dumba (4* 60 OVR)
Pouliot (4* 58 OVR)
Gibson (4.5* 79 OVR)
Pickard (4* 68 OVR)

Not sure what I'll do long term as I'm pretty happy with my team and there will be some good young guys coming up...
