    Default Better Draft??

    Obviously it is waaaay to early to tell which draft Class will end up being better but I will ask anyways, and lets base this on the top 2 or 3 rounds.

    Which draft will have the better class

    A - 2017/2018 this year
    B- 2018/2019 next year

    You are losing me by putting in the "this year" and "next year" part. What draft? The 2017 vs 2018 draft classes?

    Sorry, I mean the draft that just passed - Dahlin going first....or next years draft with Hughes going first. If that makes sense.

    Trying to figure out which year to stock pile my picks.

    So the 2018 draft vs the 2019 draft. Yes, that clears it up thanks.

    I haven't looked at the 2019 draft yet outside of the top couple ranked guys so I will let others comment who may have looked that far ahead.

    From what I have seen, I think through the 2nd and third rounds the 2018 draft is deeper, with 2019 being kind of top heavy....but yes I will let the people that actually know help lead my way!

    At this point, we have no idea what the 2nd and 3rd rounds in the 2019 draft look like. A lot of players don't emerge until their draft season, and some of the names flame out during that season as well. I've never understood waiting an extra year if you don't have to. Just do the research and you'll find very good prospects from 2nd and 3rd rounds every year. Most guys just don't put in the work.

    My plan is to load up this year, because I have done the work and with it being a 20 team league I really like some guys between 40 to 90...just want to make sure I am not making a fool of myself by loading up this year rather then waiting until next.

    Next year is a forward heavy draft amongst the initial rankings. This year seemed like a blue line heavy draft with some forwards round 2-5 that didn’t play in the top level of their circuit or didn’t play major roles so in a sense they’re now “sleepers”. In my new 20 team league I’m trying to stock up on the first two rounds next year and punting this year.

    I've only heard of a few guys in next years draft. This past draft, I read more a year ago than I have for next year. Way too early to tell, though. Anything would be guess and nothing more.
    12 team lifetime pool. 18 skaters - No positional requirements / 3 goalies (2 count for points)
    Taxi Squad - players have 5 year protection then must be called up or dropped.
    Goals and Assists count for points. Goalies get 1.5 for a win / 4.5 pts for a SO and points for G/A.

    Skaters:
    Kapanen, Bjork, Athanasiou, A. Johnsson, Cirelli, Sheary, Foegele, Compher, Bratt, Ho Sang, Kaprizov, Shattenkirk, Jankowski, Jokiharju, Terry, Bertuzzi, Zykov, Hinostroza


    Goalies:
    Varlamov, Demko, Husso

    Taxi:
    Borgstrom, Sprong, Kyrou, Liljegren, Kravtsov, Bokk


    - I'm no expert but I try really hard
