    Post your Questions

    and I will try to answer as best I can. Sound advice based on the shortened season we have in front of us.

    Be sure to include your league details (# of teams and categories).

    Keep in mind that if you are asking about a trade which invloves a team gaining a roster spot I will ask for some top available FA's.

      Tips and advice drafting? Do I try and get as many point-getting forwards as possible in the first 3-4 rounds and then try and get a decent goalie?

    • I'm in a standard H2H 12-team league with drafting in 2 days. I have a list of sleepers and busts but was wondering what sleepers and busts you had? I don't want to post them as its a long list but any ideas?

      Also why are Gaborik and Datysuk rated so low by Yahoo and drafted so late? I'm hoping that it's an error by Yahoo and I can steal Gaborik in say the 5th or 6th round.

    • can you look at my 1st yr draft at the bottom, Cat's are G,A,PPG,PPA,SHP, Faceoffs won.10 team league I had the 10th pick and no very little about hockey,Thanks for any advise

    • 14 team h2h league - Lots of stats (G, A, P, PP, SHP, BLK, SOG, ATOI, etc)

      David Booth or Ales Hemsky for this year?

    • I'm drafting tonight, going 5th. 12 teams, H2H, non keeper.

      I know that 4th pick (snaking draft) will be Lundquist, so I can likely pick from Quick, Crosby, Giroux, Perry, Karlsson, Parise, Ovechkin, D Sedin.

      Who would you take?

    • 12 team h2h keeper league... G A P +/- PIM PPP SHP GWG SOG W GAA SV SV% SHO

      my goalie situation right now is price, luongo, and nabokov
      is this a concern? usually i get to keep price and luongo but i am really worried with the whole luongo situation
      should i pickup another goalie...but options are slim riemer or khabibulin. would that be enough for this season, and keep luongo next year when he is traded
      or should i shop for him now and get a weaker goalie? who?

      also need a 5th dman, im trying to take a chance on a young dman like carlson, hedman, ellis, faulk, etc
      who do you suggest...im leaning towads carlson
