    first timer needs help with roster

    would be a tough year for this team, sorry man.

    a very simple but effective strategy for a first year is... draft the best available player who does not play Center... :P

    this team is very mediocre at all positions.

    was luongo your first round pick? then Dats right?

    if you draft outside the top5 try to get with your first rounder a LW (Parise,Heatley,Kovalchuk(might get LW,RW) and with your 2nd pick a goaltender like Lundqvist(if u r lucky...),Kiprusoff ... they are very consistend players...

    then pick the best available...

    stay away from Burrows - injured and might not see any time with the sedins this year!! in a 12team h2h format there are also ALWAYS better options than Recchi.

    nice RWs for mid-late rounds are

    Downie or Knuble ! you might often get them later in the draft...

    or you try another strategy... draft only goaltender *gg*
    I will do this later in a league...all i can get...and then I trade them... :P
    perhaps not really smart...nah...try the other way

    • Agreed.

      Don't worry about centres because it's a really deep position in the FA.

      Your D is terrible. You've got to move them up in your draft order and perhaps reprioritize them.

      Draft LW early because there are 5 or 6 LW in the league who are really good. Try also to get guys with dual eligibility like Heatley, Nash and Marleau. Kovalchuk may be moving over to RW so he should get dual eligibility as well.
