    I'm in a 16 team league, head to head. Here are the scoring stats: G, Points, +/-, GWG, PPG, PPP, SV%, GAA, SV, W, Shutouts. After making a few trades, here is my team. What do you think?

    C Thornton
    C Kopitar
    LW Sedin
    LW Elias
    RW Voracek
    RW Parenteau
    D Yandle
    D Green
    D OEL
    D Wiercioch
    Util O'Reilly
    BN Huberdeau
    BN Zidlicky
    BN Vrbata
    BN Erik Cole
    IR Sam Gagner

    G Lundqvist
    G Schneider
    BN Markstrom

    I am trying to get another good Dman and I'd like to upgrade Schneider, but in a 16 team league, goalies are quite pricey.

    How does this team shape up?

    I made a few changes. Greene, Etem and Erat are out. Wiercioch, Sam Gagner and Hansen are in. Now that Thomas is the starter in Florida, I plan to rotate goalies almost daily, depending on which backups are playing/are available for pickup. That shouldn't be a problem since Gagner will be on the IR for two months.

  • I'm in a 16 team head to head league, here are the stats: G, Points, PPG, PPP, +/-, GWG, W, SV%, SV's, GAA and SO. We were allowed one keeper from last year (Lundqvist for me). Here is my roster:

    C- Kopitar
    C- Thornton
    LW- Sedin
    LW- Elias
    RW- Voracek
    RW- Vrbata
    D- Green
    D- OEL
    D- Voynov
    D- Zidlicky
    Util- Saad
    BN- O' Reilly
    BN- Erat
    BN- Etem
    BN- Greene

    G- Lundqvist
    G- Schneider
    BN- Markstrom

    I came second last year. Do you think this team has what it takes to win my league?

    Thanks for your input. Although it is good advice, I'm not too worried about my drafting. I've made the fewest post draft moves in my league and I am just behind first place. Thanks again!

    I am in a 12 team H2H league. Here are the stats. Goals (G), Assists (A), Penalty Minutes (PIM), Powerplay Points (PPP), Shorthanded Goals (SHG), Game-Winning Goals (GWG), Hits (HIT)m Wins (W), Goals Against Average (GAA), Saves (SV), Save Percentage (SV%), Shutouts (SHO)

    Here is my team:

    C Backstrom
    C Backes
    LW Kunitz
    LW Prust
    RW Selanne
    RW Purcell
    D Justin Schultz
    D Edler
    D Doughty
    D Enstrom
    UTIL Henrik Sedin
    BN Visnovsky
    BN Mikko Koivu
    BN Eriksson
    BN Clowe

    G Lundqvist
    G Backstrom
    G Hiller

    Now my question is, should I drop Prust for Rene Bourque? I am leaning towards yes, but Prust is my only consistent source of PIM. I should add however that my team is starved for goals, which is why I am leaning towards adding Bourque.

    12 teams H2H, G, A, PIM, Hits, PPP, SHG, GWG. I have a large lead in PIM, everything else is either close or I am behind. Pick 5 or the following 7 to start.

    Henrik Sedin
    Niklas Backstrom (was)
    David Backes
    Mikko Koivu
    Teddy Purcell
    Teemu Selanne
    Michael Grabner

    I am leaning towards sitting Grabner and Koivu, but I was hoping for more opinions. Thanks in advance for your help!

    my 2nd rate team

    Goalies are set and are your strong point. Center and RW are pretty good as well, but Gaborik is an injury concern. Both your LW had great years last year but are not sure to repeat. Kinda weak in my opinion. Your D is questionable, but that is always the case usually, outside of the elite who you know will produce. All in all, not good but not bad. Watch the waiver wire for upgrades.

    For future reference, post your league type, the stat categories, how many teams in the league, etc. Also, I think most people (maybe it is just me) find it easier to see your team posted in a CC LWLW RWRW DDDD GG BNBNBNBN format than how your team was drafted. Given how you posted, we do not have enough info to accurately comment on your team.

    Lindback is gone. RW I am not too worried about. I have lots of guys with dual position so I have some flexibility. If somebody starts off real hot then I can pick them up and move some players around to fit them in the line up.
