Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
Ok, so this is my team:
(8) Jarome Iginla
2. (17) Marc Savard
3. (32) Joe Thornton
4. (41) Steve Mason
5. (56) Andrei Markov
6. (65) Daniel Alfredsson
7. (80) Slava Kozlov
8. (89) Pekka Rinne
9. (104) Dennis Wideman
10. (113) Sergei Gonchar
11. (128) Jaroslav Spacek
12. (137) Mike Ribeiro
13. (152) Cam Barker
14. (161) Patrick O'Sullivan
15. (176) Jason Arnott
16. (185) Andrei Kostitsyn
To resume, I think I'm pretty good and deep at center and my right wings are pretty strong. If my goalies repeat their performances from last season, my G should be great. I like my defense as weel.
I am planning to drop Andeir Kostisyn to get JP Dumont from waivers and to drop Arnott to get JS Gigu?re, as I would like to have three goalies. Theodore and Tuka Rask are available as well, but I fell Gigu?re will get his spot back and I am not a big Theodore fan.
My left wingers are pretty weaks, having O'Sullivan as a second left winger is a major concern. Karya is available on waivers but he is inury prone and probably past his prime. Others guys out there: Malone and Filatov, among others. Should I pick one of those guys, or make a trade?
I am not sure if I should carry 5 defensemen as well. Maybe I should drop Spacek or Barker? Not sure wich one.
+ Kaberle is availbe on waivers + Stasny, but he is injury prone.
If you're going to drop one of those D drop Spacek over Barker... Barker will get lots of quality offensive minutes with a talented young Chicago team. Filatov should get a good chance to succeed in Columbus so he might be worth picking up at some point just to get in on the ground floor with him.
How the hell did Thornton drop that far?
I honestly think he finishes top 3 in league scoring this year....
I have considered drafting him at 8 in my upcoming draft...GREAT steal...Get on Stastny before you find yourself really upset...Injury prone or not he is a pt a game player...Malone is worth a shot as he will have great linemates regardless in Tanguay, Vinny, St.louis..Stamkos..they will pair him with some of those guys..Plus he is great if your league reward PIMS....Great job drafting..My only concern would be in goal, as there might be a lack of wins..
