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...
EA's really has to fix their fantasy draft so AI GMs actually take prospects. It's annoying how if I wanted to, I could just take every 4 and a half/ 5 star prospect, play them in the NHL and sim 2 years. Then my team would be beast(all high 80s and 90s). EA has to get an update in, where in the first 5-10 rounds 4 & 1/2 and 5 star prospect will get drafted, then in 10-20 3 & 1/2 and 4 stars, an so forth...
