      I think i have two winning teams. My only problem is that all my players are old geesers who are pretty fragile. Hopefully they don't get injured.

      What do you think?

      • Like anything else, on paper some teams look better then others. But provided the stas match your players ability then you'll do fine.

        Sometimes the best teams on paper lose fantasy leagues because their real life stats do not translte to fantasy winning.

        I draft differntly in each league based on the stat categories IF SOG and FW are important then you need to look at generating stats with players that win faceoffs and take a lot o shots. .

    • Varlamov will start. He'll get me 30 capital wins imo.

      You'll laugh at this, some guy set his positions wanted at D and stats wanted at +/-. Players available on his team Tavares, Rene Bourque and Pekka Rinne.

      I offered him Burrows, Timmonen, Vlasic and Clemmensen for Heatley, Hedman and Rinne.

      His D is atrocious so I really couldn't take anyone back. He had a bunch of young guys like Luke Schenn and Drew Doughty who are good players but won't contribute too much this year and hurt my plus minus. He might actually take it, his team total plus minus from last year is around -50. If he does my goaltending will be solid, d is hurt a little but I can pick up Erik Johnson who will do good this season (hurt last season).

      Waivers are pretty dry hardly anyone I'd consider an upgrade. Giguere is available but even Clemmensen had a better last season than him. I'll think about it if this guy rejects my trade.

      Only player I see in waivers that could potentially have a better season than Perron is Filatov but it's a risk.

    • Yeah. Your team is pretty good.

      If i had to b picky i would say you need a left wing for burrows, a defenceman for Vlasic and maybe one more goalie becos i dont think Varlamov or Clemmensen will get much game time.

      Perron and Oshie are on the same team so maybe get rid of one of them.

      Who is in your waivers? Is Booth there, Giguere, Theodore (so you get all of washingtons wins).

    • good team but need an upgrade in the RWs

    • I think you more youth to many old guy that get hurt to often.

    • D is strong, goaltending is incredible.

      Offense is pretty weak. Try to trade Huet, a Dman and one of your weaker forwards for a weaker goalie, weaker D man and a strong forward.

    • its like a fantasy team

    • Green's a great pick. Thornton's a little overrated. You have two solid keepers. Maybe trade Huet for a forward?
