Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
Well I compiled a list of busts and sleepers however I've been out of touch with hockey since the lockout and I'm unsure if my list is accurate. I have alot of sleepers to the point where I may have too many and I feel like I don't have many busts. I don't want to list reasons because the post may get too long but if anyone responds asking why I have certain players as sleepers and busts, I'll respond. I have more sleepers than listed here but these are the main ones I think.
Andrew Shaw, Justin Schultz, Justin Faulk, Milan Michalek, Niklas Kronwall, Blake Wheeler, Patrik Elias, Ryan McDonagh, Brian Elliot, Niemi, Devan Dubnyk, Andy McDonald, Jeff Carter, Kiprusoff, Anders Lindback, Del Zotto, Derek Roy, Fowler, Ekman-Larsson, Luongo, Semyon Varlamov
Ryan Ellis, Craig Anderson, Jarome Iginla, Henrik Sedin, Tomas Vokoun.
So if you see anything wrong or right here, can you please let me know?
Also, I noticed Marian Gaborik is ranked #114 or so by Yahoo and is being drafted close to #100. Any idea why this is? I mean is their any injury he sustained? If it's just an error, where do you think I could draft him in a 12-team league as a big steal pick assuming none of my friends notice he's so far back on the board. I was thinking round 6 or 7...I also have similar questions about Datsyuk. Thanks in advance!
Gaborik should be drafted between 30-50 (round 3-5, he went 34th in my money league), Datsyuk around 25-40 (He went 31st in my league). Gabby had over 40 goals last year and should be ready for opening night.
Sleepers: Faulk, Shultz, Brunner, Tarasenko, Schenn, Hamilton, Wheeler, Ennis, Granlund, Hagelin, Stepan, Silfverberg, Josi, Braun, B.Smith, Kulemin, Giordano, Dubnyk, Lindback
Busts: Iginla, Elliot, B.Richards, Campbell, Marleau. Subban, Vrbata, JVR

Alright, if Datsyuk gets into the late 4th round in my league I may draft him and if Gaborik goes into the 6th round, probably him as well. I feel like people will read Yahoo ranks and not realize how low these guys are ranked, I really want to steal them lol.
You have a reasonable list of busts and I'll consider them.
Also, where would you draft Crosby if you could? Yahoo has him at #9 but I feel he's the best int the game if healthy. I'm leaning Malkin #1, Crosby #2. Agree or disagree?
