ACTIVE managers only, please!

update: I guess I'll have to kick out members from last year if they don't re-join the league. I'll give them another day.

The league is now full

Nah. Nabokov's numbers are likely to be mediocre at best. With the goalies you have, you're going to need a work horse who can balance out the lousy stats the other guys are likely to produce. At the very least, I'd try and trade for Jonathan Bernier so you can have the Reimer/Bernier tandem and at least guarantee you'll have a starter in that pair for each Leafs game. Best case, Mason or Holtby rebound and become a coup for you, and Reimer/Bernier pair up with good numbers.

I actually attempted to trade Reimer to the a guy that had Bernier. I tried to get Dubnyk, but said that he didn't want to trade a sure thing for a maybe. Thinks Bernier will likely be the starter for the Leafs as he has the bigger contract.

I'll try to pry Bernier from him.

Edit: Offered him Huberdeau for Bernier. He already has MAF, Cam Ward, and Dubnyk. Hopefully he bites.

So I'm doing fantasy hockey for the first time with 9 other buddies. We had our draft last night and I got stuck with the 9th overall pick.

I've never played a fantasy sport before and I'm not sure how closely this is going to resemble real hockey... If someone with more experience could give me some feedback on my roster that'd be cool.

You have a great roster. Make sure you rotate players daily to ensure you never dress guys who aren't playing and otherwise, look to mix in some of your more physical guys sometimes, especially if any of your scorers seem cold in real life, because your team might be lacking in the physical department (if your league scores PIMs and hits). Otherwise your roster is really quite excellent.

Awesome, thanks. A lot of the other people in my league were going for established guys but I went with youth on the upswing over vets in a lot of cases. I still think picking low is going to hurt me since I missed out on Sid, Geno, Stammer, etc. but I was hoping I drafted smart enough to pull through.

We aren't doing PIM's but thanks for the idea... I will absolutely do hits>production during downtime, especially with my streaky scorers like Gabs.

Would you guys do Stamkos for Lundqvist in my situation? Even considering offering up Nicklas Backstrom for Jonathan Quick.

You sure your league is keeping track of hits? Looking at that screenshot, they don't have hits listed there.

Oh, I thought he said he was, but maybe he changed his mind or something. I traded Grabner for Callahan the other day thinking it would help me out there.

I'm not currently in an ESPN hockey league, but I think if you go to League > Settings, it should say all the stats the league counts.

Oh cool, thanks. Yep- looks like hits are in. Not sure why it wasn't showing as a category in the screen grab.

Scoring

Skating
Goals (G) Assists (A)
Plus/minus (+/-) Points (PTS)
Shots on goal (SOG) Hits (HIT)

Average is 10-12. I personally like 12-20 depending on format. Ten just seems too small.

14 is more than fine assuming you're doing the standard 2 of C/LW/RW/G and 4 D.

Personally I like 14+ team leagues better anyways as it gives you the opportunity to take chances on sleepers and guys that could really break out, rather than like in a 10 team league having all stars and whoever is picked off of waivers.

Seguin (bad idea?)
Hossa

Subban (my 2nd pick #11 I think...and only other number I remember other than my first pick Kane)

Just had our draft, pretty happy about my team.

Where did Burns go in your leagues? I was stoked to get him in the 5th round as he will produce as a 1st line winger, but I can start him as a defenceman.

My team (6 man league):

Hall
Kessel
Karlsson
Byfuglien
Burns
Nash
Kunitz
Seguin
Semin
Voracek
Pietrangelo
Getzlaf
Luongo
Thornton
Enström
Doughty
Galchenyuk
Lupul (Dropped already for Gallagher)
Carter
D. Boyle
Schneider
Strålman (Novelty pick)
