The Dynasty of the

So I'll try and keep mine a little bit different, AND SHORT. Rather than showing off points and lines and such, I'll just put up posts at the beginning of seasons letting you know what my plan is for the coming season, etc.

To start off with:

2012 roster:

Forwards:

Benn - Roy - Ericsson*
Morrow - Fiddler - Jagr **
Whitney - Eakin - Ryder ***
Nystrom - Wandall - Sciviour

*I really like the 2 wingers on that first line. Benn and Ericsson are solid first line guys. I like Roy a lot too, although I think on a good team he's a second line secondary guy. Not good enough to be #1 C. If I can re-sign him at year's end as a UFA for similar salary as he's on now ($4 million) I'll keep him.

** Crap second line. Jagr and Morrow might put up points, but they are both old and UFAs at year's end. I have no intention of keeping them. Deadline day deals if team doesn't do well, hold and lose for nothing if playoff team.

***Whitney and Ryder - similar fit to Jagr and Morrow. Not in long term plan, but might eat both their contracts because they have 2 years remaining and I need some NHL ready forwards



Defense:

Daley - Goligoski *
Rome - Larsen
Oleksiak - Billen**


*Daley-Goligoski combined account for something like $9million against the cap. Both great contracts for older top 4 Dmen. Ideally I see these 2 as an ideal 3/4 pairing. Neither is top 2. Want to keep them, but need 2 better Dmen ahead of them. Priority for my team.

** Oleksiask is the defensive prospect stud. Wasn't planning on using him, but traded Robidas for an SJ first round pick. So will give him a shot. If he struggles early on, or I feel he doesn't belong in the NHL, I'll send him down to junior and pick up a cheap free agent Dman for the rest of the year.



Goaltenders:

Lethonen
Jack Campbell


*Lehtonen is 86 overall goaltender. Very good attributes. Signed long term (6 years), and is 27 years of age. There's no reason why he can't be my starter for at least 3 years before seeing decline in his play.

By that time, hopefully Jack Campbell can progress nicely. In 3 years, the idea is that the reigns get turned over to Campbell as the number 1.

Planning to split time between goalies on a 2-to-1 loss ratio.

If Lehtonen loses 2 games in a row, put Campbell in.

If Campbell loses 1 game in a row, put Lethonen in.

Hopefully we can get a split of 60-20 games for the goalies.





Overall goal for this season

Well, it's a crap team. But the silver lining is that I have plenty of money coming off the book at season's end (Morrow, Jagr, Roy if I choose not to resign, Whitney and Ryder if I choose to move them). So there's definitely no reason to be hasty.

I think I'll see how the season goes. If we are contending for the playoffs, I'll stick with what I have. If we are a non-playoff team, I'll blow it up and go for a rebuild the next 2 years. Regardless, I'll put Jagr and Morrow on the trade block and ask for 1st round picks back.

The first 2 drafts are deep, and almost too good to ignore. I'm kind of hoping the team ***** the bed, making the decision to rebuild an easy one - trade everything away for 1st and 2nd rounders, and click restart.

I love seeing Dallas franchises. Once, over the span of 48 hours, my brother and I took Dallas to the Stanley Cup in this classic.

Yeah that was surprising, I still had Dipietro in net and I didn't make any big changes. DiPietro was actually very good for the first two years. However the next year he **** the bed (2.90 GAA, .889%) and it was looking like he was going to cost us a playoff spot. That's why I traded for Luongo, in hopes that he could bring us a cup before he retires and Nilsson takes over. I bought out DiPietro's contract the year after Luongo came in because I couldn't trade him anywhere.

Do you know of anywhere that I can buy the memory expansion pak for the N64? I love that game (still own it and the N64) but I can't save without it.

I have no idea! I'm not sure where you live, but the last time I needed something retro up here in Canadialand, the guys at EB Games pointed me in the right direction.

Hi all,

I’ve been on the forums for a while without actually registering, but finally got round to doing so as I thought I’d start a GM mode but with a fantasy draft, just to completely shake things up!
I’ll be the Colorado Avalanche purely because they are my team. We have the 8th pick in the odd number rounds (1, 3, 5 etc.) and the 23rd pick in the even number rounds (2, 4, 6 etc.) so I should be able to at least get one superstar player.

My goals in the draft are:

Secure a very good top line, with dependable D and a solid starter.

Have good depth in my 2nd and 3rd lines, with players capable of stepping up as and when required. Same with the D.

Have a typical 4th line grind line, to go out there and play the body if we are down.

In terms of backups I will see later on in the draft, but I want a decent enough backup.

Scratch/Minor Players I will mainly be recruiting young talent with bags of potential, so my AHL roster isn’t full up of old players who aren’t going anywhere. Gives the younger guys a platform to the NHL if any injuries occur.

For now I’ll just be posting my team but I’ll add in the entire first round so you can see where all the superstar players have ended up.
So here goes!

NHL 2012/13 Fantasy Draft 1st Round
1st – San Jose – S. Crosby
2nd – Vancouver – A. Ovechkin
3rd – Dallas – S. Stamkos
4th – Carolina – J. Quick
5th – Los Angeles – C. Price
6th – St. Louis – H. Lundqvist
7th – Phoenix – K. Letang
8th – Colorado – P. Datsyuk
9th – Boston – E. Malkin
10th – Winnipeg – C. Giroux
11th – Columbus – J. Toews
12th – Chicago – D. Phaneuf
13th – Calgary – R. Miller
14th – Nashville – D. Keith
15th – Ottawa – D. Sedin
16th – Rangers – R. Getzlaf
17th – Washington – S. Weber
18th – Montreal – C. Perry
19th – New Jersey – Z. Parise
20th – Anaheim – R. Suter
21st – Buffalo – J. Benn
22nd – Edmonton – A. Pietrangelo
23rd – Minnesota – A. Edler
24th – Philadelphia – T. Myers
25th – Pittsburgh – D. Doughty
26th – Toronto – E. Karlsson
27th – Islanders – P. Rinne
28th – Detroit – C. Ward
29th – Florida – R. McDonagh
30th – Tampa Bay – I. Kovalchuk

Team: Colorado Avalanche
1st pick (1st Round - 8th Pick): Pavel Datsyuk – Center – 95
2nd pick (2nd Round – 23rd Pick): Zdeno Chara – Defence – 91
3rd pick (3rd Round – 8th Pick): Patrick Marleau – Left Wing – 88
4th pick (4th Round – 23rd Pick): Martin St. Louis – Right Wing – 87
5th pick (5th Round – 8th Pick): Andrei Markov – Defence – 86
6th pick (6th Round – 23rd Pick): Tim Thomas – Goaltender – 86
7th pick (7th Round – 8th Pick): Erik Cole – Left Wing – 86
8th pick (8th Round – 23rd Pick): Jerome Iginla – Right Wing – 85
9th pick (9th Round – 8th Pick): Chris Phillips – Defence – 84
10th pick (10th Round – 23rd Pick): Mike Ribeiro – Center – 82
11th pick (11th Round – 8th Pick): Brian Campbell – Defence – 83
12th pick: Henrik Karlsson – Goaltender – 77
13th pick: Shaun Horcoff – Center – 82
14th pick: Ryan Smith – Left Wing – 81
15th pick: Shane Doan – Right Wing – 82
16th pick: Stephane Robidas – Defence – 82
17th pick: Filip Kuba – Defence – 82
18th pick: Chris Neil – Right Wing – 78
19th pick: Paul Gaustad – Center – 77
20th pick: Ben Eager – Left Wing – 74
21st pick: Nikita Nikitin – Defence – 74
22nd pick: Kyle Chipchura – Center – 73
23rd pick: Jack Campbell – Goaltender – 65
24th pick: Brandon Gormley – Defence – 67
25th pick: Roman Psurny – Left Wing – 70
26th pick: Jay Beagle – Right Wing – 71
27th pick: Joesph Morrow – Defence – 63
28th pick: Calvin Pickard – Goaltender – 63
29th pick: Jordan Weal – Center – 64
30th pick: Jayden Schwartz – Left Wing – 65
31st pick: Ty Rattie – Right Wing – 61
32nd pick: Martin Marincin – Defence – 62

So there’s my drafted roster, long-winded I know. One thing is for sure that other than my really young guys that will be in the minors, I’ve got a very old team. Almost everyone is over 30, which is annoying, however these were only ever the better players available as the other teams were drafting the youngsters, but still I’m happy enough with the team. Here’s my projected lines to start out with:

Forwards
Line 1: Marleau - Datsyuk - St. Louis
Line 2: Cole - Ribeiro - Iginla
Line 3: Smyth - Horcoff - Doan
Line 4: Eager - Gaustad - Neil

Scratch: Chipchura

Defence
Line 1: Chara - Markov
Line 2: Phillips - Campbell
Line 3: Kuba - Robidas

Scratch: Nikitin

Goaltenders
Starter: Thomas
Backup: Karlsson

Fantasy draft: awesome. I never have done that in an NHL game, and I'm already intrigued. Excited to see how it plays out!

Fantasy drafts don't lend themselves well to this sort of thread unless they are very descriptive - because it's hard to have any sort of attachment or feel for a team because their players are all random.

But that's a great first post by hockaholic.

I'm glad he values Datsyuk too! Wouldn't be my first overall pick, but generally Datsyuk seems to be very underrated in the hockey world

MAPLE LEAFS END 50-YEAR STANLEY CUP DROUGHT
June 6, 2015

After 49 consecutive years of parade planning after the first pre-season win each season, the over-enthusiasm and effort finally paid off last night for the Toronto Maple Leafs as defeated the Los Angeles 5-2 in game 6 of the Stanley Cup Finals to win Lord Stanley's Cup.

Goaltender James Reimer was awarded the Conn Smythe Trophy as the playoff MVP after a performance for the ages, going 13-3 with a 1.71 GAA, 94.0 SV%, and 3 shutouts. Rookie Tommi Jokinen, a free agent signing from the Finnish elite league SM-Liiga, led the Leafs in scoring with 23 points in 23 games.

The Springfield Falcons, the AHL afflilate of the Columbus Blue Jackets, fell short of their Calder Cup aspirations, losing to evenutal Cup winner Bridgeport in 7 games in the Eastern Conference finals by a score of 4-1.

The Blue Jackets were shutout at the NHL Awards.

BRODEUR, IGINLA, PRONGER RETIRE
June 19, 2015

Several future hall of famers, including arguably the greatest goaltender in the history of the NHL, Martin Brodeur, opted to call it a career this week. Brodeur retires with 714 career wins and 138 career shutouts, by far the most by any goaltender in history. Hall-of-famer, Patrick Roy, retired with the second most wins with 551, 163 fewer than Brodeur, and fellow hall member, Terry Sawchuk, retired with the second most shutouts with 103, 35 fewer than Brodeur. Brodeur was hoping to continue his career this season, but was unable to convince a team to offer him a contract.

Jarome Iginla also retired after an injury-plagued and sub-par season with the St. Louis Blues. Despite not going out on the best of seasons, Iginla still recorded the 21st most goals in NHL history with 569, 5 goals more than the player he was traded for, Joe Nieuwendyk.

Chris Pronger was seemingly a perrenial player in the Stanley Cup Finals, often with a new team each time. The rugged defender was not only known as one of the best defensive players of his generation, but also as one of the dirtiest. One of the things he wasn't known for, surprisingly, was his offense and he quietly racked up 176 goals, 25th all-time, and 811 points, good for 17th all-time. When interviewed after the announcement of his retirement, he quipped in his usual sarcastic fashion, "Who went number one, again? I don't remember." This was believed to be in reference to Alexandre Daigle's infamous "Nobody remembers number 2" quote from the 1993 NHL Entry Draft.

So this just happened..

Decided to play a dynasty with Calgary, and suck and trade Iggy and Kipper for high draft picks to build a stacked team through the 2013 draft. Anyway, we're better than I expected us to be and we won like 43 games. So I traded our first in 2014 and 2017 for Anaheim's pick. No one wanted Iginla or Kipper.

Then on draft day, Edmonton offers us their first rounder, which is fifth overall for Kipper and our second rounder or some nonsense.

Took Drouin 3rd, and Mack Shields????? was actually the number one ranked player by scouting central. Took him 5th. I've played fairly deep in a few dynasties and I've never even noticed this guy. He was 4 and a half yellow stars, 18 years old. Ended up being 64 or 69 overall. Where the hell he came from, I'll never know.


He's 82 overall at 19 years old now

PENGUINS SELECT SERGEJ FEDOROV WITH FIRST OVERALL PICK
June 24, 2015

The Pittsburgh Penguins selected first overall for the first time since they selected Sidney Crosby a decade ago and used that pick to select Russian winger Sergej Fedorov. The young Russian has been compared to Evgeni Malkin, obviously a player familiar to the Penguins organization. He possesses a large frame at 6'3" 203 lbs, elite hockey sense and vision, and tremendous playmaking ability. Fedorov is expected to make the trek over from Russia to attend training camp and compete for a spot immediately.

The Columbus Blue Jackets possessed the 13th overall pick, which they used to select intimidating power forward Jared Fletcher of the Calgary Hitmen. The hulking 6'2" American left winger tips the scales at a hefty 231 lbs, which makes him difficult to handle in front of the net. Jared is not NHL ready, so he's unlikely to get a shot with the big club in September, but the Blue Jackets see him more as a long-term prospect, anyways.

With their 43rd overall pick, the Blue Jackets selected Max Grubauer from Skelleftea of Elitserien, the Swedish Elite League. The young German right wing is a playmaker with decent size, although there are several areas of his game that need to improve before he can make the jump to the NHL.

Boris Moroza, a large center from Russia, was selected with the 103rd choice by Columbus. While Moroza may not be the most talented player in the draft, he does have size and plays a 200-foot game, both assets that any team would like. If he can develop his skillset, he could certainly become a quality NHL center.

Columbus selected a pair of over-aged defenders with the 103rd and 133rd picks, both of whom have great size and play a fairly simple game. Swiss-born Cory Byers, currently playing for Ambri-Piotta in his home country, was taken 103rd while Everett's Austin Adam, a 6'5" Canadian defender, was taken 133rd.

The Blue Jackets utilized their final pair of picks to add some more grit and toughness to the system. American Bryant Lowe, currently in the US National Team Development Program, was selected 163rd overall. He plays a north-south, rough and tumble game, but most scouts agree he's a longshot to ever make the NHL. Polish fighter Kelly Larose was chosen 193rd overall. The gigantic 6'6' 244 lbs winger doesn't offer much skill or skating ability, but he is strong as an ox and willing to drop the mitts with anyone brave enough to take him on. Kelly will likely continue playing for his Elitserien squad, HV 71.

Then on draft day, Edmonton offers us their first rounder, which is fifth overall for Kipper and our second rounder or some nonsense.

Took Drouin 3rd, and Mack Shields????? was actually the number one ranked player by scouting central. Took him 5th. I've played fairly deep in a few dynasties and I've never even noticed this guy. He was 4 and a half yellow stars, 18 years old. Ended up being 64 or 69 overall. Where the hell he came from, I'll never know.


He's 82 overall at 19 years old now
Wow!

Yeah I've done several deep dynasties and never heard of him.

I wonder whether he's someone who got buffed in the recent roster update.

EA are known to make adjustments to prospect potential around every December, but perhaps with the lockout etc they put it all into this one.

That could be it. I thought at first maybe he was a made up player and I just happened to luck out. Plays in the CHL though in real life.

He's 87 OVR now at 20 years old.

I am about a quarter way into my 2nd year as the GM of the Florida Panthers. As of now I hold the 1st and 5th pick I believe. I know that the season is young but what prospects turn out really well in this years draft? I was thinking about Ekblad? How does he turn out? Are there any goalie prospects that are potentially better than Markstrom? He has put up amazing numbers with me so far but just isn't developing like I want him too.

That is a great pick. You must have been happy to see the #1 ranked pick drop to #5.Is he still at 4.5? Yellow or green?

I really like Ekblad - but he took a while to develop for me. I think he was 24 when he first played in the NHL for me in a bottom 6 role as a 79 overall I think. He does develop into high 80s, just took a while for me. Maybe not so much for you.

There was a guy I drafted in year 2 at 2nd overall, named Sami Engren. He had 99s on all his shooting characteristics, and put up 4 consecutive 50+ goal seasons playing with Seguin. Not sure if he's real, or made up, or a re-gen, but might be someone worth looking at.

Other than that, outside of the first year there's a bit of randomness outside of the 1st round. Doesn't Sam Reinhart go in the 2nd-year draft? He turns into a beast.

On goalie prospects - if you are looking to replace your goalie, don't do it through the draft. Sure you might find someone who has the potential to be a stud in the draft, but drafted goalies almost always take a good few years to develop (often longer than players).

If you want to improve your goaltending, and you find a really good G prospect, trade Markstrom + for a veteran goaltender. See if you can buy a few years out of a veteran goaltender (Halak), for a few years, and then once that contract is up your prospect should be ready to go.

I've never seen an NHL-ready goalie coming out of the draft, and I've done 4 GMs that have gone minimum 10 years deep

It sounds like Ekblad could take a while to develop and since I play almost every game it could be a while before I actually get to use him in my lineup.

I may try and target Reinhart since I did draft Jones 1st overall in my first draft and I have multiple other good defensive prospects. I would have to take a look at what the scouting report says on Ekblad.

For goaltending, I may run with Markstom right now and see if he develops into a mid 80 after this season. If he doesn't I will look for a goalie that is probably already maxed out and has a year or two on his contract to give a rookie goalie some time to develop.

Thank you for the help!

Ryan Miller (90 overall, 37 years old, 8.245m 3 years)

Some 4 star LW prospect
3rd Round Pick
Who is your goalie now?

Well I would try and move Miller at that age and that cap hit too! I think what you got back was really good and you free up so much space. Could deal for rebuilding and retooling in the off-season. That money can now go towards one or two solid players for your team heading into the future.

Last save i had 3 franchise-goalies in the draft. All three had 5 stars in potential and 2 of them was ranked as elite goalkeepers after one season.

Names where, Niklas Deske, Brendan Burke and Coleman Vollrath.
