Without knowing your scoring (how important are goalies?) or the amount of teams in your league (how deep is your draft pool), I think you go with Rask, Couture, Seguin, Huberdeau, Lupul, Landeskog.
Gagner had a good year but he typically doesn't do well over an 82 game season. Landeskog has the bigger ceiling, I think. As for D men, I think you can draft better or equal options in the first 2 rounds of your draft if each team is only keeping 6.
1 - Rask (Top 3 Fantasy Goalie)
2 - Duchene (No Brainer)
3 - Seguin (Should have a great year, especially if he is traded for another team)
4 - Lupul (18P in 16G)
For the last two, pick between Couture, Gagner, and Huberdeau. All 3 could be great, but could also slump very easily.
As well, in your draft, try picking up a Goalie early on. Picking up goalies late in a draft is never easy, and you will often get burned if you do.
