    • Big time risk in that team, Crosby plus RNH might get next to nothing in points in worst case. Plus old guys like St Louis, Brodeur, Selanne, and Sourray probably close to finished their careers. Good upside value in Stewart and JVR though.

    • respect man, i really love that roster.

      thats more or less the PERFECT result you can achieve for drafting D late. you cant do any better than stealing this 5 Ds...

      If you look for your starting forwards:

      St.Louis with #1 and then grabbing Kovi+Nash, the only elite LW,RW players in the draft AND low ranked Stewart and THEN grabbing Crosby is really really sweet and shows that you play with a lot of guys that are not really smart GMs ;)

      I think Schenn AND Hopkins is a risk at C because you might lose both to the minor leagues.

      too sad you couldnt grab C steal M.Koivu :P
      is McDonald available? or Berglund? drop Schenn or Hopkins - just gamble with one and grab a solid St.Louis forward (oshie,berglund,steen,mcdonald -some are ALWAYS available)

      now to your weekest point - goaltending.

      going with brodeur as late round #1 might become a very smart move, I also take him or Roloson as a late #1.
      But you really should consider grabbing another G.
      Rask is in a lot of leagues available (i think pavelec not anymore...).

      my advice:

      drop Schenn or Hopkins
      AND Konopka (no FW so his value is very low for a PIM guy)

      for

      Rask + Berglund/Oshie/McDonald/Steen


      and you will have a brilliant team !

      respect and gratulations - this is how a 12team H2H standard format team should look like... its near to perfection man !

    • I'd drop Konopka for another goalie since he only contributes one stat in your league and unless it's a keeper league, RNH isn't worth a spot on a roster this year.

      Overall, you'll probably end up looking brilliant or completely stupid. I doubt you'll end up in the middle.

    • RNH will probably only play nine games

    • Anybody have anything?
