Please let me know what you think, all advice is appreciated!!
Ya I would say you took a few risks there. I think your are a young player enthusiast. I like forwards but not your defense at all maybe try moving a young guy like Seguin or Hall for a quality guy for you defense!
Looks good overall. You have a lot of young players with upside. Is this a keeper league? If yes: wow.
I don't like your D so much though. Phaneuf is a bust and Hedman & Seabrook don't have much fantasy value.
You could also get in trouble in goal if Fleury is injured.
Good picks. I'm guessing you're in an 8 team league or so. Backstrom should have a monster year imo. Kessel cant do worse. skinner might have a hiccup as a sophmore, but hall will put up great numbers imo. goaltending looks good, except backstrom will struggle a bit more this year than in the past. Only thing u may want to do is look for a cagey vet, that pretty much gets 80-90 pts consistantly like zetterberg, or dats...or richards in la or new york.
try and steal guys that had an off year like spezza...should bounce back much better too.
