Seriously, 6 Forwards & 5 Defensemen. What's wrong with you people. Why put so much emphasis on a position where some of the best players don't contribute fantasy-wise. Not the perfect example but would the Penguins have a cup without Scuderi? How many fantasy teams ever win a championship with this guy? At least include some grit in your stats (hits & blocks) if you are going to force rosters to waste space on d-men.
once again you plug and play gm, we carry 5 defence because it forces decisions, on a Saturday night, do you want empty spots or defencemen as counters on your team? My experience if there were 3 d spots, guys would carry two. So the issue is forced, get to know your nhl son. Is it nice living in the Sunbelt where hockey markets fail?
