Keep 8, 12 team H2H, R, HR, RBI, SB, AVG, OPS, W, SV, K, HLD, ERA, WHIP
I have liked a 6-2 hitter pitcher split in the past but not sure I can justify keeping any other pitcher than Sale this year... Thoughts?
Decent team. MacKinnon in the 4th looks like a steal. Not a fan of your defense and your goaltending is nothing special. With Tavares, Seguin, and MacKinnon, you might be able to overcome your weak defense though. Rinne is a great goaltender, but his injury history always worries me. As for Mason, I could be wrong but the 5th seems really high. Your goaltenders could end up being fine - I just think they are risky. Roster as it stands now looks like a middle of the pack type of team to me.
Slim to none. Doesn't see a lot of ice time, and doesn't play the power play, and I don't think that will ever change. I think he will be a career 3rd pair dman/fringe NHLer. Even if he were to improve enough to see more playing time, he is more of a stay at home defenseman, which usually does not result in great offensive numbers or fantasy value.
Out of those two, I would generally go Hall, but it depends on how the rest of your team looks in terms of +/- because there is a huge difference in what their respective +/-'s will be and if the remainder of your team is already poor +/- players, Hall will really hurt your chances of competing in the category.
Neither, if that is a possibility. If I had to choose though, I would say Jones, but I think they will put up similar numbers this year.
Depends on your other keepers, league settings, etc, but I would go Gomes due to how easy it is to find good pitching throughout the year. Gomes has great numbers for a catcher and is good value at 20th round.
I don't mind the Sedin picks as you probably got them at a bargain as compared to what they will produce. However, Peter does bring up a good point. You do have a lot of soft players, and I am wondering if your team will struggle in PIMs and HITs. Goaltending also could be better. Overall, I think you should do very well in the offensive categories.
Not a bad draft.
Goaltending is decent. You might be a little light in the Wins category, and yes you should definitely carry 3.
Also, I don't know off the top of my head all the eligibilities of the various players, but having drafted Johansen, you might have a hole at centre as he likely won't be playing at the beginning of the season as he doesn't have a contract yet. Also, not a huge fan of any of the left wings you picked. Should be easy to make up for these deficiencies as good forwards are very easy to come by, however.
Overall, I wouldn't change your strategy too much. Would maybe put more emphasis on drafting goalies from good teams (ie not a huge fan of the Schneider pick).
