He hasn't played in the NHL yet, and it's unlikely he plays this year due to injuries. Would he go back into the draft if I don't waste a keeper spot on him?
Keepers take up 10 of the rounds. It's more a formality than anything. When we load the live draft on Sunday the keepers will automatically be placed on each team, and the draft will be cut down to 10 rounds.

The entry draft is only open to players who were eligible for the 2012 NHL Entry Draft, so someone like Zibanejad would not be eligible for this draft, but Nail Yakupov would. Zibanejad would go to the FA draft (the live draft we are doing on Sunday).

Oh and I see we will not play an east coast team once this year ... (but hopefully 4 or 5 times)
I'll Inbox you some little tidbits and we can discuss anything else you have questions about tomorrow.

You are able to do 2 drafts at once (I've done it before and haven't had problems opening the applet). Good idea to pre-rank as well so that you can easily manage both and just go off your list though.
