    Rate my draft ! (still undergoing)

    I was thinking about getting PIM D-men. I havent tried that in the past so I'm not sure how beneficial it is. I'll give it a test

    • Well, a guy like O'Brien isn't going to get you a whole lot of points. However, if you've got any other players on your team that gets a lot of penalty minutes like Pronger or Hartnell or Lucic, etc. etc. then a guy like O'Brien is extremely valuable. I always recommend him to people as a fourth defenseman. Pretty much locks up the penalty minutes battle for you in head to head leagues. I don't remember for sure, but I think the only guy with more PIMs than O'Brien last year was Carcillo. However, after O'Brien the theory doesn't work quite as well. The next guy on the list is Steve Montador and he'll get over 100 PIMs, but nowhere close to the 200 that O'Brien is gonna' be close to. So if you don't get O'Brien and you haven't already got some guys like the aforemention Pronger, Hartnell, Lucic, etc, then the theory doesn't really work. But... There ya' go.
