Yahoo Fantasy Draft results

See, the problem I have is I always look at my roster after we're done and think "Holy crikey, how can I lose?" - I don't think I overrate the players I took, but I'm usually very happy and optimistic with the results. Of course, I don't always win the pools I'm in, so I'm looking for input. Where am I too weak? What would you try to upgrade/address with trades? Should I be concerned about the number of Canucks (Bieksa, Burrows, Sedin) and Ducks (Whitney, Selanne, Ryan) I have?

Hiller at number 4 is not really nessicary. Almost every draft I've done has him taken in the 8th or 9th round. Plus, his starting job is not a lock at all. Other than that it look decent, I might not take Burrows that high, but that's just me.

Hiller at 4 is way too early. Giguere is still on Anaheim, and one good season does not a starting goalie make.

Emery in the 8th round is a much better choice. Philly is stacked this year, and his backup is Boucher. He should have at least 30+ wins.

I'm a fan of these considering where you were able to get them. Good run of 6 picks (except for alice, not a fan of him ):

14. (184) Erik Johnson D
15. (209) Andy McDonald C
16. (212) Alex Goligoski D
18. (240) Patrik Berglund C
19. (265) James Neal LW

If anything goes wrong in Anaheim, your right wing could be a bit weak. When you've only got 4 of a position, having your top two at any position from the same team isn't ideal - unless it's Pittsburg / Detroit / SJS / etc - especially given Kotalik / Williams aren't great substitutes.

You have really good center depth though, and while your D doesn't exactly have big-name guys it's pretty well spread out.

For the other guy - Lidstrom / Markov in 5th / 6th round are solid pickups. Markov is always underrated.

Scoring is easy to find, so I always take goalies in the first two rounds.
