    Please review - never drafted roto team before

    I am pretty good in H2H leagues, but my hockey team decided to do a rotisserie fantasy league so I really didn't have much of a choice but participate. I'm sure I made mistakes so please feel free to provide any tips or suggestions. The stat categories are G, A, PPG, PPA, PIM for players, and W and SO for goalies... that's it. Player categories are 3xC, 6xW, 4xD, 2xG, 2xbench.

    CENTER
    Crosby
    Benn (forgot he's unsigned)
    M. Koivu
    Zajac

    WING
    Lucic
    Hossa
    Elias (also C)
    Pacioretty
    Perron
    Hemsky
    Tanguay

    DEFENSE
    Shattenkirk
    Ekman-Larsson
    Subban
    Wisniewski

    GOALIES
    Rask
    Schneider

    My strategy was simple. I don't worry about defense until the later part of the draft. Aside from a few exceptions (Chara, Weber, Boyle, etc) there isn't a lot of statistical variance between the majority of defenseman around the league. I also like to take care of my goaltending early so I then focus all on offense from forwards and then defense.

    I was thinking of dropping someone, preferably a winger to pick up Downie, as I think he'll have a good 40-50 point season and a #$%$ load of PIM. Was thinking of dropping Tanguay or possibly Hemsky. Also considered dropping Zajac.

    Thoughts please?
