You picked some risky top-end forwards. Thornton has a regression risk albeit not a large one and Perry is still unclear whether he's a Hart candidate type of guy or not. Then there's Brad Richards on top of all that. Carter was a great pick though. Guy is still a really underrated goal scorer and will help in your league with the SOG as a category. Picking Pominville that low was a little risky but it worked out because that's probably a steal.

You should try and upgrade on Varlamov though or just run two goalies if possible.

I picked today. I had the first pick and went with Stamkos. I realize Crosby would've been a better pick but I couldn't do it. I'm not too happy with my bench, and I should've picked some players with better shot blocking stats. What do you guys think?

The stats are G, A, +/-, PPG, PPA, Blocks, PIMs, Short Handed Points, GWG .

C - Stakmos, Kopitar, Hodgson
LW- B. Marchand, B. Saad
RW- Voracek, Ryder
W- B. Galagher
F- S. Koivu
D- Subban, Kieth, Franson, Goligoski
G-Schneider, Nabokov
BN- Ott, M. Letestu, Valeri Nichushkin, Souray

This was the first draft in a long time where I didn't simply take players I like or draft based on what they'll be in the future instead of what they are now.

Thornton definitely has the potential to regress but he'll still be on their top line even though they won't be using him in the key situations as much as they have in the past with other players rising to the occasion.

Perry I think is closer to the Hart candidate type then not, plus his PIM's are nice to go along.

Brad Richards I think will have a bounce back season now that he doesn't have Torts looking over his shoulder. He's good on the power play and is starting the season on the wing on a line with Stepan and Nash so he won't have as much defensive responsibility. Even though he's "down" he still scored at above a .75PPG pace both seasons in NY. As a 9th forward I'll take it.

I took Carter because I needed a goal scorer to match my assist heavy forwards (Thornton and Backstrom) and I definitely agree that he is underrated there.

Dobber has Pominville as the 53rd skater so I don't think I took him too early at all but like you said it could be a steal.

Kimmo I was extremely happy to see there still. I was surprised that Streit went before him in the draft.

In my keeper league, I have Joni Pitkanen and he's likely out for the season. I had a guy offer me Ehrhoff for a 1st (Likely to be 15th overall to 20th overall) and 2 3rds (Anywhere from 40-60). Is that a good deal to take?

20 team rotisserie league, with categories G, A, P, +/-, PIM, PPP, SOG, FW, Hits, Blocks, Wins, Saves and Sv%. Positions are 2C, 2LW, 2RW, 2D, 2 utility, 1G, 1 bench. I had last pick.

1. Perry (20) - RW
2. Spezza (21) - C
3. Mikko Koivu (60) - C
4. Voracek (61) - RW
5. Hodgson (100) - C, RW
6. Elias (101) - C, LW
7. Seabrook (140) - D
8. Brayden Schenn (141) - C, LW
9. Cam Ward (180) - G
10. Slava Voynov (181) - D
11. Varlamov (220) - G
12. Jack Johnson (221) - D

The key categories that always make or break this pool are faceoffs and blocks. I have three dedicated centres (Spezza, Koivu & Hodgson), plus a couple guys that win faceoffs here and there (Elias & Schenn). I took a third defenseman to help with the blocks.

A secret I figured out a couple years ago for this pool is to draft goalies who play a lot on medicore teams... and only play them on home games and the occasional road game. Because there's only one goalie spot, it works out well... though there is only one bench spot, which is then occupied by one of your goalies. By the end of the year I do a lot of add/drops to max out games played by other positions.

It feels weird to have two Flyers. Over the last 3 years, over 6 different pools, the only Flyers I ended up drafting were Timonen and Pronger.

What are the goalie stats? Yeah you should have gone with Malkin or Crosby. As far as blocks go, that's the only peripheral stat there meaning the only stat that's not really scoring related (aside from PIM) so I wouldn't worry about it. You might want a blocks and/or PIM specialist instead of a lower-end guy but for the most part you should just focus on scoring more then your opponent since that takes up the majority of the stats.

I like your team overall, but without knowing more about the league I can't say if having guys like Saad and Nichushkin on the team is smart. You have an interesting situation in goal with two guys in opposite situations and points in their career.

12 man pro league with yahoo, first year in fantasy, I don't think I did too bad.
Congrats on your first year. You did okay for your first year, I was a horrible fantasy GM my first season. I hate the Rinne pick. Plays on a bad team, coming off a poor season (for him), and is more of a save percentage horse then anything. That early you should have either went with a better caliber fantasy goalie or waited to draft goalies depending on who was available. Your forward picks were great. However, since your league doesn't weight D scoring or have much in peripheral stats you shouldn't have drafted D so high. D score less then forwards. That's just a straight-up fact. A top-end offensive D scores at least 40 points. A top end offensive forward? At least 70 or 80. It's simple numbers.

No offense and take this as a tip since you're new to fantasy but your goalie picks are just bad. I already elaborated on Rinne, but Pavelec is only a good pick in a league that counts Saves which yours does not. He posts bad to mediocre numbers, his skill is in question, and he's at risk to lose his starter position constantly really (though only slightly). Elliott is obvious why. Historically a horrible goalie before St. Louis and in competition with a better goalie in Halak and a younger goalie in Allen.

Your taste for forwards is very good though.

Prospect picks? It depends on that and what the scoring is. If your league weights D scoring or something liek that do it, otherwise no. D is only important in leagues that go out of their way to make D more valuable (short of a guy like Karlsson). Though that's just what I think.

You're a smart fantasy player. My first fantasy league had the normal scoring cats, PIM, goalie cats, and FW. I knew that drafting high scoring centers that win FW was the key to winning because then I get the scoring in addition to the FW stat that wingers just don't give you so you're essentially getting more production out of centers then other skaters. You picked up on that apparently.

Koivu and Spezza are terrific in leagues that count FW so it was smart picking them. Guys like Schenn will add a bit extra, but I think you should have picked another FW guy that can contribute secondary scoring instead of Hodgson (unless he's better at FW then I thought). You picked D last generally which I love and your goalies are a mixed bag. They'll be big guys for the Saves category but their Wins and Save Percentage will be mid to bottom-tier. Luckily though most of your categories are skater-based so as long as you win Saves that should be enough.

A to A+.

Thanks for the feedback. Goalie stats are W, GAA, SV%, and shutouts. I picked Schneider in hopes that he'll split the season with Brodeur and I expect he will do well. I think the Islanders will be a decent team, and though I don't think Nabokov will have awesome stats I assume he'll get a majority of starts and have average numbers and a fair number of wins.

Why not Saad? You think he might not repeat last season's success? I picked up Ott for PIMs but I might replace him with Downie who is available and there are bunch of pretty good players still available including Grabovski, Radim Vrbata, Michael Grabner, Devin Setoguchi, Cory Conacher, and Andrew Cogliano who are all probably better picks than Nichushkin and several of them play for teams that I haven't picked from.

edit- I didn't realize that last year was Saad's first season.

Very intriguing scoring settings. Just points all over the place. It's scoring-centric mostly and there's specific categories solely for D so I'd prioritize around building high scoring D and big-time goal scorers since there's a lot of different goal scoring categories worth big points (PPG, G, SHG, DG, G x 3). As for goalies, just ones that get lots of wins should be the best bet.

With all that in mind I love your team for the most part. Nice secondary scoring bench, some big-time goal scorers like Carter, Ryan, Kopitar and excellent D contribution which is big for this league. Don't change your D roster at all. Your goaltending is a nice combination because Schneider should bring quality stats while Luongo should bring the Wins.

Only suggestion is to try to wheel and deal Ribeiro for a more goal-centric player.

I think Schneider will easily pick up the starter position a little more down the season so I think you'll get some more contribution from him then you'd think.

Yeah if this is a one year league or you have a minors roster definitely get rid of Nichushkin. Same for Saad.

Saad is a second round pick sophomore coming off a 10 G, 27 P in 46 Game season. That's not an overly impressive rookie season so his sophomore shouldn't be all that great either especially considering he has the draft pedigree of a 2nd rounder still. I'd drop those two and pick up two of Downie/Grabrovski/Vrbata/Grabner personally.

As for goalies, just ones that get lots of wins should be the best bet.

With all that in mind I love your team for the most part. Nice secondary scoring bench, some big-time goal scorers like Carter, Ryan, Kopitar and excellent D contribution which is big for this league. Don't change your D roster at all. Your goaltending is a nice combination because Schneider should bring quality stats while Luongo should bring the Wins.

Only suggestion is to try to wheel and deal Ribeiro for a more goal-centric player.



I think Schneider will easily pick up the starter position a little more down the season so I think you'll get some more contribution from him then you'd think.

Yeah if this is a one year league or you have a minors roster definitely get rid of Nichushkin. Same for Saad.

Saad is a second round pick sophomore coming off a 10 G, 27 P in 46 Game season. That's not an overly impressive rookie season so his sophomore shouldn't be all that great either especially considering he has the draft pedigree of a 2nd rounder still. I'd drop those two and pick up two of Downie/Grabrovski/Vrbata/Grabner personally.
Thanks man. I picked Karlsson at 4th overall lol. I also just got Brodin off waivers, what a steal.

Thanks I switched Vrbata for Nichushkin, Downie for Saad, and Grabovski for Letestu as it is rather likely Grabovski will put up more points and possibly have a better +/-, though Letestu is more likely to get SH points.

Potential tip for people, it probably isn't worth picking him up at this point but I read that CBJ rookie Boone Jenner will start the season on the top line with Gaborik. https://twitter.com/RobMixer/status/384005601434402816

Yeah Karlsson hands-down is even better then Crosby or Malkin in leagues that have specialized D specific scoring categories in addition to regular scoring. Or at least I think so.

The Letestu switch was smart as well.

Giroux for Stamkos - I'd be getting Stamkos.

I also have H. Sedin as my C.

Yahoo! league.

Depends on the scoring categories.

In points only it's roughly an even swap but I'd take Stamkos personally.

Do it (Unless you already did). Sedin and Giroux won't score you too many goals but Sedin and Stamkos will give you a nice mix.
