        best pickup is a toss up between selanne and lombardi (who has been close to a point a game since mid february when i acquired him from FA

    • Probably one of the best teams I have ever had.

      H.Sedin
      P. Datsyuk
      H. Zetterberg
      D. Alfredsson
      M. St. Louis

    • Drafted 6th in a 12 team H2h
      C- Getzlaf, M Richards, Kesler, Horton
      Lw - Marleau, Nash, Burrows, Clowe
      Rw - Iginla, Perry, Pominville, Langenbrunner
      D - Keith, Kaberle, Streit, Suter
      G - Nabokov, Lunqvist
      For the final week i dropped Getzlaf for Zubrus, and on sunday i dropped Nash for Ersberg (which was a game winning move).
      I should also mention i lost Cammeleri, Hemsky, and Savard to injury. Plus Horton missed a lot of time, and Getzlaf and Nash's absences hurt me a lot down the stretch.

      • Here is my team

        C : Henrik Sedin!!!
        LW : Heatley, Cammalleri (dropped him for the finals), Daniel Sedin
        RW : Brian Gionta, Mike Knuble, Johan Franzen
        D : Andrei Markov, M-C Bergeron, 2 random Defensemen

        G : Halak + Price (I had them for most of the season because Montreal couldn't settle on a #1), late pick on Howard, Niemi (I dropped Huet)

        I was new to fantasy hockey. I've wasted my 3 first picks for :
        Mike Green
        Andrei Markov
        Lidstrom

        WHY? Because our experts in tv keep saying that Defense wins game. Well, naive as I was, I picked D to win the game. Fantasy showed to be another world :P

        In the end, with a lot of trades, I was able to win the playoffs!

    • Drafted 11th of 12 in a standart roto league and still managed to win my pool (104p, 2nd 84.5p). My final team (however, I've made 41 roster moves during the season, only players marked with a * are also drafted by me...):

      C: Getzlaf*, Staal, Zetterberg
      C, LW: Elias
      LW, RW: Ryan*
      RW: Kane, Selanne*
      D: Green, Boyle, Gonchar*, Streit*, Martin
      G: Hiller*, Backstrom, Niemi, Varlamov

    • I got to draft first in my league with only 6 teams and it was rotisserie. Did a lot of changes but finalized my roster with:
      C - Malkin, Kopitar
      RW- Semin, Kane, Franzen
      LW - Kovalchuk, Marleau
      D - Lidstrom, Rafalski, Keith, Green, Quincy
      G - Howard, Bryzgalov, Anderson
