Semyon Varlamov

Leaf fan coming in peace.

I drafted Semyon in my money fantasy league and I am wondering if he's going to get most of the starts? How has he played in pre season? And other things I need to know about him.

Eric Fehr

Curious if Caps fans are expecting Fehr to reach the 30 goal mark this year, or at all.

varlamov. who else did you draft? varlamov is a crap shoot. he is capable of playing 20 games with 2 loses and then tweaking something. After missing half the season he then shows up for the big games at the end.

this season neuvirth is very likely to be good enough to take his game away if he doesnt stay healthy.

mcphee's public statement is that they are splitting the games and that neither will be expected to play 60 games.

Fehr scoring 30 depends largely on his ice time. He is not a primary player. The key for him is injury time for Semin.

Maybe if Knuble goes down for a decent amount of time and Fehr continues to improve then he has a shot.

With the last pick of the first round in my keeper draft, I took Hall. With the first pick of the second round, I took Seguin.

Had the 18 team Mod League draft...ended up with 7 Caps.

The settings are pretty screwy though, where goaltenders are way more important than they should be, we start 1 per night, but they're still 4/10 of the total points, so I took 2 in the first three rounds.

The thing about goalies... two or three emerge in the early weeks of the season as unheralded go-to players, like a Steve Mason. You either grab one real quick on the free agent wire at that time, or you're stuck all season long with what you've got. There is no getting past having bad FH goaltending. At the very least, it has to keep you in it.

Of course, that's less pronounced with smaller leagues of 8-10 players compared to 12-14 or so.

3 years of drafting in a keeper league of 12 teams, and I am yet to have a draft in the single digits. In the previous 2 seasons I still managed to finish 3rd. Hopefully my goaltending doesn't melt down in the playoffs this season.

Brooks Laich

Hey Caps fans!

I've always liked Laich (omg rhymes!). Who will he play with this season? Will he get time on the PP?

Thank you!

"liked Laich" doesn't rhyme.

Must be how the francophone media pronounces his name (or how I pronounce ''liked'').

Let's just call him Brooks. Who is he set to play with? Any significant PP time to expect?

He is a 2nd liner. He will most likely play 2nd line LW for much of the season. 20-25 goals is about right. Could be more if there are injuries or he gets on a hot streak.

Probably another 20-30 assists.

He will play on the PP, though probably the 2nd unit (as Bruce <3's Fleischmann more), though most fans feel he is a better fit for the top unit.

He'll play with Semin on his RW, and a revolving door of centers, on the second line. He'll get some time on the top PP unit as the man in the crease, and some time on the second PP unit (which does not play much). Solid bet for 55-60 points.
