New found respect for Ed Jovo!
Schwartz and Nyquist
On the D side, of the 2 give me Barrie. The Oils are not there yet team wise for Schultz to break out offensively.
I somehow don't see Doughty getting in 50 in Sutter's system. Is he capable? Sure. Will the system allow it? I don't think so. 40 is more likely.
Normally Rask and Price but in this case, since they will bump into each other in Round 2, Rask and Fleury (high risk, high reward!)
...and Letang if healthy (Big Injury Risk but a sure shot if healthy)
I would put Giordano in the list of Ds that can get 40+ consistently (the operative word is CAN)
That clarification seals it further for me. Much as I like Giroux (even started a thread to tout his return to eliteness!) it has to be Rask. With him (and the others in Group B) you are A+ solid in...
I hear you. Sounds like he is not getting Game 1. Not sure how the team goes without their established G in the post season.
chalk another vote for the KK duo
That to me, is the whole problem around playoff drafts and pools (of the non-box variety) unless there is a max limit of players you can select from each team. That tends to even things out a bit,...
For Team 1:
Depends on who you see coming out of the West. Looking at your initial list, looks like you are sold on Bos, PIT (EAST) and CHI, SJ (West). To me, the more games the teams play, the...
Has Callahan mentioned that he will not be staying in TB? Don't recall reading that anywhere, may have missed it.
Definitely a sell high candidate if you can get better names (some names already suggested in the thread). However, as donpaulo said, you should not feel bad keeping him if other GMs don't bite,...
You can definitely try but I am sure the only reason he offered Sid was to snatch Price away from you. Given this league format, Price is easily one of the most (if not the most) indispensable...
Someone on another thread - forget who - also posted a link to hockey-reference.com - a great site for team head to heads, and player stats. Great site for historical info too.
Pittsburgh, then Detroit, then Columbus (now wouldn't that be something). Hell, anyone but Boston.
Good job!!!Dynasty in the making :-)
Ok then. I made it easy for myself :-).
Took Dobber's Interactive Playoff Draft sheet, selected my team picks to make the finals (BOS - East, ANA - West) and the other 2 conference finalists...
Are you trying to pick the top point getters? The ones that play the most games? The ones that go to the finals? Not sure, what we are to pick - just clarifying.
MacKinnon would definitely be one of my remaining 2 keepers. For the 5th spot, to me the choice is between between Neal, Vanek (depending on where he signs - MIN will be stifling) and...
Just noticed - looks like none of the folks that chose Dallas have voted yet
Yes, the absence of reseeding allows for better projection / forecast, somewhat.
Uh oh! The Goalie circus just saw another dimension being introduced in PIT - Vokoun recalled. Does this mean no Zatkoff and a shorter leash on Fleury, and therefore more pressure on him?
Completely agree, if that is the direction they choose to go.
Buzz (Rumor) is Peter Laviolette is a probable candidate (Poile has US team connections with him)
I can sense your predicament. Darn good choices and the resulting pain associated with letting some really good options go. IMO, it comes down to 4 spots and 7 candidates (ignoring Pavelski and Niemi...
Stepan and Callahan for me too.
I would even make a case for Palat and Gudas instead of JVR and Buff especially if Buff does not retain his D status for next season, which seems very likely....
Then I hope the ownership changes hands, before JT decides to jump ship.
Well, to be honest, they did finish 8-2-2 in the last 12, and played nearly 1/3 of the season without JT + it seems that the players did give him/his system a thumbs up.
That said, based on his...
