    Default Advice/Thoughts on my Cap dynasty team

    Hey guys,

    ....I'm bored. I drafted the team in my sig before the NHL Entry draft and I'm thinking I've got a good shot at contending this year and in the future. Obviously my teams ability to compete can only be evaluated relative to the other teams in my league but I'm not going to post 19 other teams and you wouldn't read that anyway (who would?). So I'm just looking for general thoughts on players or weaknesses for my team. Some of my thoughts now that the draft high has worn off:

    I shouldn't have drafted Orpik, 5.5 mil is better spent elsewhere. During the draft my team was seriously lacking HTS/BLK and Orpik was a knee-jerk draft selection. I've since added those stats through trade and FA pick-up.
    Saad's salary killed any cap flexibility I might have had before
    Prospect eligibilty is 100 games for skaters and 60 games for goalies
    I'm almost exactly on the cap depending on who from my minor team I call up.

    I have been trying to trade Sutter and his 3.3 Mil contract for a smaller one since I'm already very deep at C. Lots of other teams are in similar positions though so it's difficult to unload salary (I already traded Fisher for Clutterbuck and a pick to shed salary)

    Thanks for the thoughts.

    Can't really find much to add that you haven't already mentioned (Orpik, Saad, Sutter, etc.).

    You've definitely got a (very) strong team in a 20-team league and somehow are adding Eichel to that mix too. Also, you've got a really sneaky good D (Orpik's $ and B.Strait aside)

    Solid farm with some fantastic talent up front (Poirier - another really sneaky good prospect for your setup), some longer-shot goalies (and most are anyways) and a couple of solid D in Miller and Pateryn, with Montour having great upside in a dynasty too.

    Think you've got a pretty solid handle on your situation (not surprising considering it's you) so I think sitting back and looking for value opportunities that make sense is about all you can do. I wouldn't say there needs to be a specific target - just the usual "always trying to add value" deal if it comes along.

    Thanks for the feedback YL. I got really lucky with the inaugural draft structure. Picking second for the prospect draft (which was held first) and then the inverse (19th) for the NHL vet draft immediately after. The only better position would have been 1st/20th imo. Top end prospect talent this year was 1-2 then everyone else and Vet talent was much more spread out.
