2012 / 2013 Fantasy Hockey Talk

Since one has not been created yet (that I saw), please use this thread to discuss fantasy hockey for the 2012 / 2013 (lock-out shortened) hockey season.

All questions about starting a league, joining a league, possible rosters, fantasy trade scenarios, etc.

Mods to merge or nuke if there is an existing thread I missed.

I had an email asking if I was going to start up my usual fantasy league. I hadn't really planned on it since I haven't paid much attention to the NHL, but if there is enough interest (and you are SURE you will actively participate) I will. If you were in my league last year or the year before and want me to re-start it, PM me and if there is enough interest (at least 12 committed managers) I'll get it going.

I'll probably just carry forward the settings from last year, which were:

Roster Positions: C, C, C, C, LW, LW, LW, LW, RW, RW, RW, RW, D, D, D, D, D, D, G, G, BN, BN, BN, BN, BN, BN, IR, IR

Forwards/Defensemen Stat Categories: Goals (G), Assists (A), Plus/Minus (+/-), Powerplay Points (PPP), Shorthanded Points (SHP), Game-Winning Goals (GWG), Shooting Percentage (SH%), Hits (HIT), Blocks (BLK)

Goaltenders Stat Categories: Goals Against Average (GAA), Save Percentage (SV%), Shutouts (SHO)

Thanks

The "official" HF Sharks league from last year is attempting to get started on time for this season, and I will be putting up a separate thread for it shortly since it's a much larger undertaking. But this thread can and should remain active for general fantasy discussion and leagues not related to those official leagues.

Thanks vaasa

Thanks for starting the thread Vaasa! The fantasy advice I got here was invaluable when I won my league last season.

I'm curious as to who people think will be the top forwards this shortened season? My league might be a lot smaller this year due to the short notice, so I might end up with a much more stacked team. I'm not used to even the possibility of ending up with more than 1-2 top forwards.

How many teams in this league? Harder to evaluate without know that key piece of info. However, I think you could've gone for another clear #1 goalie and there's questions surrounding some of your top picks. Kovalchuk apparently would prefer the KHL, Hossa is aging and coming off injury, and I could go on.

Voracek will be top line with Giroux/Hartnell this year, Burrows should be with the Sedins, and PA Parenteau should be with Duchene which hopefully pans out well. I snagged Okposo late because he should be on the top line with Tavares.

12 teams. I took a lot of risks. Kovy and Hossa as you mentioned, the unsigned contracts of Subban and O'Reilly, and the injuries to Burns and Quick. Nabby is flew under-the-radar, he was solid in Nassau last year. Lindback is very boom-or-bust, hard to judge how well he will do in a starter's role after seeing so little time in Nashville. Replaced Ruutu with Clutterbuck to get some penalty minutes while not totally downgrading offense.

Name dropper.

I'm pretty happy with how my draft went, though I need to fill the last two spots though and wanted some opinions. My options are two of Parenteau, Kunitz, Filppula, Brunner, Callahan, Stepan, Hagelin, Kreider, Havlat( though I already have Jumbo and Pavs), Duchene, Bolland( who usually wouldn't be an option but is centering the hawks 2nd line), Skinner, Zajac, Erat, and Doan. Willing to take a risk for high reward. What do people think?

Personally I'd go Kunitz and Skinner. Duchene's an option. Erat, Zajac, and Stepan round out the group of people you should be considering IMHO.

Duchene, Kunitz, possibly Callahan (should be playing on a top line). Zajac if he sticks on top line.

I'm thinking this too, maybe add Skinner in the mix. Kunitz seems safe but not thrilling, Duchene had a terrible year last year and might be demoted if O'Reilly signs, Callahan seems to have benefited a ton from the new additions, and Zajac all depends on if he sticks to Kovy. Leaning Callahan... need more opinions.

What are peoples opinions on Huberdeau? He's available and had a great first night, worth the risk?

He did look great last night, and all indications are that he's going to have a great career. Who would you be replacing him with?

Is it really a risk? If he doesn't pan out, drop him.

I'm always up for a potential waiver wire find. And you usually get them by jumping on early in the season.

I think he's going to have a good rookie year. It depends on how deep your league is and who you'd be cutting for him.

I'm in need of an extra goalie, only good ones left are Hiller and Lindback. Which one would be better this season?
