I think I'm pretty much set. There is another team who was stacked with their keepers as well.
But Scoring shouldn't be an issue and I have huge PIM and HITS producers in Ott, Dubinsky, Neil, Clowe and Brown.
Defense could use some upgrading, but I'm not sure who I should trade.
Goalies I'm pretty much set on and I'll have to drop O'Reilly for someone if he doesn't sign by opening day.
That's definitely a contending team in my league. In fact, I'm surprised you managed to snag that combination.
You're right in that your D-men are the only semi-weak link, but they're not so bad either. Doughty could easily be a top 5 D-man, and Pietrangelo will keep your +/- high all while contributing some decent numbers as well.
I'm not a huge fan of Vanek personally. I know he had a good start last year, but he wasn't able to sustain it, and I have a feeling it won't carry through this whole season either. Some people seem to like him a lot though, so you may be able to beef up your defense by trading him out. Havlat is hit or miss as well, so maybe a combo of those two could give you a solid D-man in return.

I was thinking of packaging Havlat with a dman to upgrade since he tends to be often injured. Would that be a good idea? I actually like Vanek and I think Buffalo will do well this year!
