Initially my drafting didn't go the way I had hoped, but I'm starting to like my team despite having so many soft players. should be a fun and competitive season.

Pretty happy considering my first 8 picks were chosen via autodraft (Lundqvist, Kane, Niemi, Heatley, Letang, Skinner, Lecavalier, and Krejci).

EDIT: Can't figure the picture out.

C: Skinner, Lecavalier, Krejci, RNH
LW: Benn, Hall, JVR, Mueller
RW: Kane, Heatley, Voracek, Little
D: Letang, Shattenkirk, Giordano, Kaberle, Gonchar, Del Zotto
G: Lundqvist, Niemi, Varlamov

You took a lot of players out of my que. Streit and Berglund particularly irked me. Good team.

Can't wait to get this season started!

Just got my team. Loving my defense. Stole Crosby with the 8th overall pick. Hit or miss? Sure. But if he's back and plays most of the season I'm getting the best player in the game with the 8th pick.

Forwards:

Crosby
Ryan
Skinner
Marleau
Selanne
Tanguay
Grabner
Ladd
Samuelsson
Kulemin

Defensemen:

Lidstrom
Letang
Ehrhoff
Enstrom

First time with this for me and drafted this team:

C: H Sedin, Anze Kopitar, Patrik Berglund
LW: Zach Parise, Bobby Ryan, Brenden Morrow
RW: Danny Briere (C), Phil Kessel, Jordan Erbele
D: Erik Karlsson, John Carlson, Dustin Byfuglien, Shattenkirk, Del Zotto
G: Lundqvist, Lehtonen

But I relesed Eberle and picked up Marc Staal as a Free Agent, when will he be available in my rooster?

I don't particularly care for this team.

Crosby 10th was risky IMO. At least you also got Zetterberg, but I mean, think about who you missed out on.

Not a fan of the goaltending tandem. Personally, I just think Kipper and Broduer are too old to really take a disproportionate amount of their team's starts AND put up the kind of numbers they're known for. Varlamov could be a good pick, but just too many question marks for that team as a whole for me.

Zajac is months away and really, last season was such a bomb, I'm not sure I would have touched him even if he was healthy.

Pronger at 82? I know there was significantly better defensive options available in the 7th round.


Sorry bagh, you asked......

After the draft, I IRd Zajac and Crosby and picked up 2 guys I thought would blow Seguin and Voracek.

Pronger at 82? I know there was significantly better defensive options available in the 7th round.


Sorry bagh, you asked......
That's cool man. I asked for a critique. I'm not one of those guys that posts their teams to get a pat on the back. I took a lot of risks in this draft, I don't deny it. The only thing I didn't know about was Zajac.

The rest I made a calculated gamble. I am relying on my D and LW to get me the secondary catagories (PIMS, Hits and chip in on SOG and +/-) My 2 C (Spezza and Zetterberg) to hold down the scoring with Kovalchuk and Gaborik providing support.

As for the goalies, another calculated risk. There were 10 goalies selected before Kipper and it was Brodeur or Backstrom or Reimer. Again another goalie run in between. I didn't stress about goalies like I did in years past as Goalie stats are only 5 catagories whereas Forward stats are 7.

After the draft I picked up 2 guys I thought would blow up in Voracek and Seguin and IRd Crosby and Zajac.

Should I pick up Artem Anisimov? I've been told he could be a breakout player.

Projection-50 points
If he plays like he did in the preseason, maybe 60

I'd be willing to trade you a better goalie if you want it.

I have Price, Howard, and Roloson.

Yeah my goalies are real weak, well more like they play for weak teams. As far as a trade goes it would really depend on the asking price, what I'll most likely do is just hope I get lucky and eek by with these clowns. My forwards and D should do a good job putting up the points, only a few guys I'm not high on (Erat, Peverley, and Weiss.)

This is one of the holidays where I'm annually stunned at how many people don't have to show up for work. I mean, traffic was a "Friday after Thanksgiving" level this morning. Guess it's enough to be able to fill these arenas.
