    • let me draft for you

    • I haven't done to many, but wait on those dmen, take some left wings like noted above. I would try and grab at least one great goalie in the first few rounds (though not first round), and don't leave your goalies for the last couple of rounds either. Good luck!

    • LW is scarce once you get out of the first two rounds - depending on your draft positoin, you should try and pickup Ovie, Sedin, Bobby Ryan, or Praise with you first pick. Then follow up with a top goalie for your 2nd (Thomas, Miller, Price, Quick, Crawford, Fleury). If one of those goalies is still available come your 3rd pick - grab another goalie - always nice to have two 30plus Win goalies on your roster. After that fill up your LW and RW - but also try to stagger your picks. For example - draft a C followed by a Def, then a winger followed by another Def. I have been using this strategy for several years now and I always finish in the top 4.
      Don't forget to draft a 3rd goalie sometime around 13th or 14th round (Rask - would be the best to grab). Good luck

    • I usually wait on Defencemen a , dont rush to take them too early. Get some good wingers, maybe a goalie or 2 and then fill up your D spots
