    • It think your team is coming out good. Some good young talent who have great expectations. Also, goaltending shouldn't be an issue. WASH is saying that Theo will be the starter entering camp, but that could be because he gets paid so much.

      Teams coming out good or came out good if you're finished.

      Help me out:

    • It's looking ok, too many injury risks if you ask me. Also, I think you have too much goaltending. I prefer to grab one of FA list after draft and season starts (a la Mason(s), Rinne, Hiller, Khabi, Conklin last year)

    • Looks.... ok-ish.

      Your centers are less than average. Your left wings are pretty good. Your right wings would be good if Gaborik would stay healthy, but I'll get to him in a minute. Defense is questionable. Spacek could do well in Montreal and Johnson is iffy as to when he'll actually return. Turco played like crap last year and Brodeur got hurt. It looks like a really iffy team to me. If everything goes well with the aforementioned players, I think you've certainly got a playoff team. But, if Brodeur gets hurt again, you're screwed. If Gaborik gets hurt again, you're gonna' have a real tough time making the playoffs. If Turco gets hurt, you're gonna' need someone besides Theodore to get anywhere in the playoffs. About Gaborik, the dude has only had one eighty point season in his eight year career. The other seven seasons, he hasn't even broken seventy. Add to that, he's been played less than seventy games for four out of the eight seasons that he's been in the league and three of the seasons that he was healthy all year were his very first three in the league. So, you've basically got a better than fifty percent chance of him getting hurt. As far as your last few picks go, my advice would be Shane O'Brien because you're going to need the penalty minutes. Maybe a Scott Hartnell if he's still available. Can play both wings, assuming they give him that same postion eligibility as last year, get you fifty or sixty points, and over a hundred penalty minutes. Other than that, good luck.
