    14 team Draft Strategy

    So i have been debating on what strategy i should use when i draft my team.

    H2H League

    G, A, +/-, PIM, PPP, SHOTS, HITS, BLKS

    W, L, GAA, SV%, SO

    3 C
    3 LW
    3 RW
    6 D
    2 G
    4 BN

    If i do end up getting a top 3 spot im more then likely taking Malkin, Crosby, or Stamkos. After that since with 14 teams you would need a steller goalie i was thinking Lundy.

    Since we coutn hits, shots and blks guys who i am targeting are Dustin Brown, Ryan Callahan, David Backes. Each provide 200/200 in shots and hits. If i miss out on Lundy, Quick or Rinne i think i am going to hold off on a goalie as someone like Ryan Miller is ranked as the 14th best goalie on yahoo and out side the top 3 i mentioned, Miller competes with everyone else in the 2nd tier.

    Also seem to be alot of C again this year, so i will be looking to fill the other spots first. Since we need 6 D and there are 14 players that means that 84 D are going to be selected. So i am targeting to get a D within the first 4 rounds. Maybe top 3 if I can get Karlsson.

    Anyone else have any opinions?

    • I would add Giroux to your list if available. If you are out of the top four obviously Lundy or Quick would be your targets. I would also recommend taking a D with your third pick (Karlsson, Letang, Chara etc). People severely underestimate their value. Centers and wingers are readily available in the later rounds.
