    • Well this fantasy stuff is fun this actually is my thrid time doing this first league though I have done in about 5 years however I am in a 12 team league also and am currenty 4 th not to bad. Anyway on some suggestions it looks like you have a decent lineup first of all look at the key categories like in my league for example they award face off wins so I tend to go with centers alot who will win you face offs and score you goals. One thing I also would do is that since defensemen dont score to much look for some more foward players such as centerman out on waiver, LW, RW, etc, however if you have a really good defensman such as a pronger, lindstrom, rafalski dont drop kim, after the top defenseman are a dime a dozen. Also concerning goaltending I would look at even picking somone up like a price who splits start with Huet and I would just look at the matchups and choose who you think should play each night that is about the only advice I have for now and good luck.

    • Well, you have a deep league, but you could've done better.

      You do have some hidden gems on your squad though: Sharp, Erat, Tanguay, Pronger

      Your goaltending is probably stinkin' up the joint right now. First move I would make is trade one of your borderline wingers or D-men for a better goalie (replace Fleury or Kolzig). Then pick up Todd White (perhaps replace Horton??), whose centering Hossa and Kovalchuk right now (and most likely available as a FA in your league).

      Build from there.
