Draft and Trade Talk Message Board

your league is full of #$%$ idiots there is not way in helll you should ever manage (even in a 8 team league) to get crosby and ovechkin they have been #1-2 for the past 8years and still under 30 yo you should try playing with people who know what the hell they are doing before ...... and if you are able to drop a player to pick up kessel or backstrom that is ludacris
Sharp is slated to start on the LW with seguin and Benn and he will be point on the PP where nichuskin could get some time on the top unit..... Nichuskin has great potential and hopefully he will get some chemistry with spezza or get a shot at the top unit........ its a close call but as long as nichuskin gets a shot at top 6 minutes (which he should) he is a better pick
cammelleri is a useless tit eilliot will be splitting starts and seeing as goalie categories are 50% of the scoring they you will need an upgrade. if someone drafted Allen see if you can send him Elliot+ for a different goalie. your D are pretty solid but I would drop cammallari and see if Tyler Myers is on FA as you will need 1 more D........ if you get that goalie then your team should be good but If not you will struggle to make the playoffs.....
whats up hockey gods! had my draft was little over a week ago. i got 8th pick!
standard h2h - 14 teams - G/A/-+/PIM/PPP/SOG/HITS/BLK goalies W/GAA/SV%/SO
C - giroux / stastny
LW - sharp / toffoli
RW - neal / gallahger
D - burns / weber / seabrook / franson
Bench - galchenyuk / cammalleri / krejci / nichushkin
Goalies - bishop / elliot
now i know my goalies are hurting and i need to make a trade for another starter. any suggestions who you might be fit/need to take out of this team? any input would gladly be appriciated
THere's no deal in the world that would make up for losing PRice and Ovi. ON a different, how small is your league if you landed OVI AND PRICE? Ovi had to have gone top 2 or 3 and Price could not have dropped below 10.
I agree...I've done 3 different drafts of 12 to 14 teams and Nichuskin went undrafted in all of the leagues. I picked him up after the fact when realizing his potential. He'll have a good season but will only have a "breakout" season if he sees some playing time with Sharp.
I'm new to both this forum and fantasy in general.We are 9 teams in this league. We all cheer for different teams (I cheer for PIT!), so we decided to pick 2 F, 1 D and 1 G from our respective team. The forward had to be picked in the 1st round, and the goalie in the 2nd round.
Team setup: http://imgur.com/NDR01Ex
We run a 2C, 6W, 4D, 2G; 6BN. Everything is shown in the uploaded picture, as well as point value. (The picture does NOT list the draft-order) Most/some of my draft-picks are picked by their Overall value from the past three seasons, with our point value-setup. I made a very detailed Excel document to help me with these picks (and some whom I feel will perform well). Any favorite sleepers that might come alive this season that I could pick up?
1.(3)Sidney Crosby (Pit - C)
2.(16)Marc-Andre Fleury (Pit - G)
3.(21)Alex Ovechkin (Was - W)
4.(34)David Backes (StL - C,W)
5.(39)Antti Niemi (Dal - G)
6.(52)Mark Giordano (Cgy - D)
7.(57)Patrice Bergeron (Bos - C)
8.(70)Kevin Shattenkirk (StL - D)
9.(75)Chris Kunitz (Pit - W)
10.(88)Troy Brouwer (StL - W)
11.(93)Chris Kreider (NYR - C,W)
12.(106)Patrick Marleau (SJ - C,W)
13.(111)Radim Vrbata (Van - W)
14.(124)Roberto Luongo (Fla - G)
15.(129)Gustav Nyquist (Det - C,W)
16.(142)Johnny Boychuk (NYI - D)
17.(147)Dan Girardi (NYR - D)
18.(160)Thomas Vanek (Min - W)
19.(165)Cal Clutterbuck (NYI - W)
20.(178)Olli Maatta (Pit - D)
I managed to pick up BOTH Crosby and Ovi, but not Kessel and Backstrom (respective linemates). Is it worth going for 2-3 linemates, seeing as if a goal is scored, the linemates will most likely be awarded with an assist. Will it be worth for me to try and pick up these two players, and whom should I be willing to drop for it? I'd like to keep Backes, as he was #3 in point production last year (with our point-table) and always seem to deliver, season after season.

hey guys, just want your input on these two players. i have hagelin on my team. im leaning towards nichushkin because he is on the first line PP.. do you guys think?
standard h2h. 14teams.
I'm going to agree your team is very beatable. 10 team league you should have more studs? You've only got 3 and 1 great goalie. Plus Erikkson Jones Schenn means you passed on guys like Hoffman, Nichushkin, Plotnikov, Pastrnak, Spooner and others though Drouin and Kuznetsov are excellent late round chances. I'm pretty sure in a 10 team league someone had a much better draft but I am also not interested in knowing all 10 teams. Good luck and hope you have fun
I dont think you know what a sleeper is....... sharp,kane,luongo,simmonds,oshie even eichel are all very well known players I would consider them all to bounce back players (except eichel) but In no way sleepers.....
Sergie plotnikov -sleeper
Ryan Murray - sleeper
Max Domi - sleeper
Derek pouliot - sleeper
who are your other keepers, what positions are you weak in..... Voracek is the best player but if you already have kessel and perry not much point in keeping another RW...... without any details and based purely on talent, linemates and past performance voracek is your clear number 1
rinne will not be as good this year as he was last year I would sell high on him try and target letang as the penguins PP will be insane and he will be the number 1 D in the game........ package up rinne and stralman for letang and a reasonable G back.... try and unload green as he is already having groin problems in preseason and is a bandaid. check your waiver wire and see if Tyler Myers 15p in 25g(with WPG last season), Cody Franson (clear cut #1 D), or Ryan Murray who is played 25min last night for columbus (1 point) all of these players have the potential to hit 50 points and will have 35+ for sure and most do not go in the draft.
