    Default Fresh Keeper Draft - #6

    I know I know, theres been a million of these things.
    Been in keepers for a few years, have a fresh draft tomorrow night and Im going in with more knowledge and experience in my back pocket than most of these other guys. I have the jitters going in as I dont want to overthink it.
    Anyway, that being said, I have 6th pick.
    12 team H2H, start 12F 6D 2G.
    G A P PPP PIM +/- W SV% GAA

    Sid, Malkin, Stammer will go. Then I have no way of knowing if it will be Giroux, Tavares or Ovi before me. Should I take the leftover member of that group, or should I start the goalie wave with Lundy? If Lundy goes, should I take Rinne or Quick? I feel like I can get Ovi here and then take a combo like Ward and Luongo on my next two picks...

    Any simple thoughts to help clear my head and give me some reassurance helps. Rep awarded. I shouldnt be feeling this stressed with the advantage I feel I already have, but I can't help it. Who should I target with my first 3 picks boys?

    Thanks in advance. Id be lost without this place.

    I feel like you've got an opportunity to lock down your goaltending with this pick and never have to worry about it again. If Ovechkin falls to your position I probably wouldn't be able to resist but if it's a Giroux or Tavares I'd be thinking about goaltending. Pick #6 guarantees you one of Lundqvist, Quick or Rinne, which is pretty much the Holy Trinity between the pipes. Can't go wrong picking one of those three.

    Crosby, Malkin, Stamkos, and Giroux should be easily gone when you pick. The only big gun I can see having a chance at to draft is Ovi, who I would pass on.

    If he is still around at 6th then Lundqvist is the guy you need, otherwise you should probably go with Tavares.

    If any of the first 4 I mentioned slip it's a no brainer, beyond that it's Lundqvist, Tavares, Ovechkin for me.

    I will add that knowing your league is even more important to help determine your draft strategy. If you think goalies will be undervalued then feel free to go with a forward and take your chances.

    At 6, I'm all over a goalie, unless Crosby, Malkin or Stamkos slides. If Lundy is gone, I'd take QUICK. He's four years younger and will put up roughly the same record and Sv%. It seems that he's the better SO goalie.

    Ovechkin, Giroux, or Tavares; I would want to have one of the elite point producers in the game. I wouldn't consider taking one of the elite goalies, with one of those three guys being available at #6.
