Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
8 team, standard scoring, keep 3 (prefer deeper leagues but its with some old friends)
c. M Richards
bench Hossa, Briere, Morrow
Goalies. Lundqvist, Fluery, S Mason, Hiller.
when Hossa is moved to IR I'm picking up Burns. Offered Doan for Blake (he's got nothing at RW and very deep D so it should go through). In that case I'd drop Montador for Burns and use the empty roster spot from Hossa on Pominville or Gionta.
Goalies killed me last year in this league so I wanted to make sure I was deep. If Hiller doesn't take control of the starting gig in the first month he's probably gone in this shallow of a league. Anywhere else I can improve besides defense?

it's only 3 keepers and since I doubt I'll get a D who can outperform Iginla, Heatley and Kovalchuk I'm not planning on trading up for somebody that good.
If I can get a solid reliable guy on a good team like Blake I'd be more than happy with using Burns, Montador or whatever other good D that will be available in a shallow league as my last guy.
It's a beast of a team in a 10+ team league, but in an 8 I am not sure where it will end up. I definitely like it a lot, but I have never been in an 8 team leage so I imagine that the otehr teams are stacked too. You are STACKED at goalie.

I'm the only team that went 4 deep at goalie. There is really only one other team I'd consider a threat to me in net, and I'd only need to worry about him if Varlamov breaks out as his third goalie behind Luongo and Miller.
I view my team in this respect. I have the best core of wingers and goaltenders, and with Lidstrom and Gonchar I'm as good two deep at defense as anyone. I got great value picks with Richards and Sedin and I doubt I'll have any trouble filling the defense behind the two top guys in an 8 team league.
