Ok - I ran the numbers on your scoring system.
The top 25 forwards in your league are all Centers. Make sure you draft a Center for the Utility spot.
Another thing: the best goalies sit around 8th-10th in the list of best overall players in your league. I would draft C, G, G, C, C in the first 5 rounds without question.
The top goalies in your league are Bryzgalov, Lundqvist, and Price. Ward is OK (high saves) but he will get less starts than usual this year because of Boucher. There is somewhat of a drop off after these four.
A healthy Crosby is the best player in the league. Toews comes in at 2nd.
It's all dependent on what position you draft. I like either 1-2 or 7-12.
You really want to get a scorer as your #1 pick. Someone you think will score tons of points and shots on goal. 2nd pick you want a top 10. After that you want to fill in RW, LW which are very thin. Since you only playing wingers than it doesn't matter pick the best wingers. Middle rounds pick up a goalie with great upside and winning team.
You have to watch the waiver wire to get key pick ups. All teams look good after the draft, but one month in those teams SUCK. So you need to Pick up the good players.
My key pickups were Corey Crawford, Logan Couture, Shattenkirk.
Sergei Bobrovsky -will get his share of starts.

I have 2 recommendations. Make sure you get 2 really good starting goalies. And since the league is both goal heavy (2G 1A) and their are FW target players who score goals above assists. Also if you can find players with Wing eligibillity who take Faceoffs (Zetterberg) you'll be at an advantage. Don't wait on goalies though, you won't win without them.

I disagree there are only 3 goalie catagories goalies matter little here take 1 guy like lundquist in the 2nd round then wait till like 4 or 5 to draft another one.
also yes you want players that take faceoffs and play on the power play and score goals.
look for guys like toews and scoring wingers like backes
