    It's definitely something to try in a one year, no money league. Have some fun and go for it! Peng had it right though, stick with Kane/Kessel early and put off your goalies until rounds 3, 4 or even 5 if there are reasonable options available. One year, I drafted all Edmonton Oilers or ex-Oilers and came in 3rd. The lack of fantasy D is what did me in. I got Coffey (when he was in PIT), but after that, the pickins were slim. It was a blast preparing for the draft and then the actual draft. No one knew until near the end of the draft. Some guys almost caught on with a lot of current Oilers on my team, but they never got the full picture until after the draft when I explained that I included ex-Oilers. Had a blast.

    The pen is mightier than the sword...unless someone is trying to stab you with a sword. Then, it's the sword...definitely the sword.

    probably, yes, but you won't be able to guarantee that your opponents won't take the good Americans, especially in the first few rounds. It would be a great experiment to see the results of.

    What someone should do, if it hasn't been done already, is create a league where you just draft (and keep) the players from a certain country. It would be interesting to see the results, maybe limited categories, but multi-cat with hits, blocks, takeaways, pims, so that the teams like the Swiss get a chance lol

    There is absolutely, no way you could win a pool by selecting only American players. No..... way.... Impossible.
