    Default 16-team Offline draft, rebuild. Help!

    Took over a team last year in a 16 team league. My keepers are:

    Kessel, Voracek, Okposo, Nichushkin, Letang, Bishop, Fleury

    Stats are heavily skater based:

    Goals (G), Assists (A), Points (P), Plus/Minus (+/-), Penalty Minutes (PIM), Powerplay Goals (PPG), Powerplay Assists (PPA), Shorthanded Points (SHP), Game-Winning Goals (GWG), Hits (HIT), Blocks (BLK) (and 4 goalie stats that we don't care about right now)

    Roster positions (bold means it's already locked up):

    C, C, LW, LW, RW, RW, D, D, D, D, Util, Util, G, G, BN, BN, BN, BN, BN

    I have the 4th and 26th pick and my strategy is just pick the best available guy out there. Available players:

    Yandle, D. Sedin, Hartnell, Kronwall, Niskanen, Krug, Nyquist, Giordano, Semin, Marchand, Kreider, Burns, Palat, Schwartz

    Who would you target? If Yandle is still out there by 4 I would be surprised and thrilled.

    Yandle no question about it, but after that it becomes tough. No wait, just saw Kreider - he'd be my next guy in a multi-cat. If those two are gone by your pick, I would swap 4 for say 8 and 16, then I would draft three times - 8, 16, 26 (for example). Because a lot of those remaining guys are close enough in value. So I would try to get three of them. Focus on defense if you can, as they are more difficult to get later in the year. Kronwall, Krug, Giordano, Niskanen, Burns in that order

    If you are picking 4th I would go with whoever is left of these guys.
    D Sedin - if he starts hot, then I would look at trading him
    Kreider - good scoring categories for him
    Nyquist - great upside
    Yandle - solid

    Would try Dobbers strategy and try and trade down the 4th pick, as the players are all fairly close so better quantity - was my first thought too.

    Interesting. I think I'll wait for the first couple of picks to go by and then try and trade down. If Yandle isn't gone for some crazy reason, then I'll grab him. There's a guy with the 9th and 15th picks that might do a deal for the 4th. Guys like Zuccarrello and Stepan are also out there in case I miss Kreider.

    Thank you!

    I'd be jumping on Stepan, ahead of Kreider.
    I would be trying to trade down for those 2 other picks, as there isn't that huge of a difference between the 4th and 15th pick.

    Well it's my pick and Sedin, Nyquist and Yandle are gone. Just waiting to hear back about the guy with the 10th and 14th to see if he wants to make a move. Options out there are guys like Stepan, Hartnell, Kreider and Burns. According to Yahoo, Hartnell was the 30th best player last year. Burns was 62. Stepan 85 and Kreider 126.
