    I'm still revamping my team into how I want it. I came into the draft at round #12 I believe, with a lot of cap issues and crap for a goalie. It's gonna take some time, a strong prospect draft and some waiver manipulation. But I'm 100% confident I can get it to where I want it w/in a year.

    Very, very fun, indeed.

    My team (in sig) has a few holes in it, and took some turns during the draft that I didn't plan for, but with a league this enormous, I think most of us are in the same boat.

    I think my D and G are strong, and could use an upgrade at RW, but considering that this is my first expeirence in a league this big, I am pretty pleased and definately excited compete.

    Just want to once again thank especially dyz and also all others who were/are involved in various committes and helped ensure that this will be a great league for years to come. Thanks guys.

    I have to echo Rainydrinkwater's thoughts about the draft. It's hard to have your universe completely centered around one thing like that and then just give it up cold turkey and not suffer some withdrawals. Rainy also hit it on the head, everybody left that draft with some weaknesses somewhere on their roster. No way in a league this size, with so many savvy GM's, are you going to get the perfect team. For me those holes are lack of a backup for Lundy, RW, and D, in roughly that order.

    Overall I really like my team(in sig), especially in the long term. I was able to stick to my plan all the way through. I came into this draft intending to load up on young players and avoid what I considered bad contracts, just focus on best available with good bang for the buck. I think it's mission accomplished, at least as far as drafting a young team goes. I entered the draft willing to sacrifice competing for the first couple of years to build a team like this one.

    Because he has McQuaid and Foster as his top pairing D!

    thats what the prospect draft is for! haha yea my defense isnt that great, if i can upgrade it during the prospect draft i should be fine. my team doesnt have the star power that your team does, but it has a tonne of depth.

    Can we assume that you will be taking a D 7th overall? D-heavy prospect draft!

    I might select all goaltenders with my top 5 selections (2, 12, 53, 85, 95) haha! (Kiddin of course... or am I!!)

    You definitely have a competitive team and can't wait to see who you select #1 overall in the prospect draft. I have my guy (at #2), which may surprise (and sadden) some of the GMs who thought he would drop.
    I like the team that has St. Louis, Gaborik, Hudler, Dvorak, and Svatos personally for RW teams lol

    please....nothing beats Doan, Skinner, Backes, Horton, Ryder.

    as for my 7th overall...not quite sure. i wont pick again until the 3rd, so logically i should take a dman. i might just pick the BPA, it all depends on who goes before me.

    I think I drafted a true Calgary Flames team. Full of workers! There's tons of categories and I'll be looking to sneak out the less obvious ones.

    We plan on rolling the clock back to 03/04 and then avoid all the stupid decisions that took them to a mediocre 2011.

    Yes. Pre lockout flames would be a better target to aim for.

    Northwest division is going to be a tough one. Don't think well see the same division winner too often. Anyone wanna swap?
