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.
If you have any other questions, feel free to email me.
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.
