    Draft critique, keeper league

    Fairly solid on the offense (no high-end talent, but a lot of second-tier offense), but I'd be looking to upgrade my goaltending...big time. Schneider is *probably* a starter, and *probably* a top rate one, though it remains to be seen how much playing time he'll get. Dubnyk has potential, but on a defense-light team like the Oilers, he's not going to get many shutouts, and will be lucky to crack thirty wins. Crawford is another "bubble" starter, which leaves you with no sure bets in net. So if I were you, I'd try to swing a trade for another team's second goaltender. Guys like Niemi and Hiller are underrated by Yahoo, but they both start a lot of games, get their fare share of shutouts, and (unless you *don't* think last year was an anomaly for Anaheim) should both cross the 30 win threshold this season.

    Just my two cents, for whatever it's worth.
