    I just really hate drafting goalies. If the trend to backups playing 30+ games wasn't becoming a thing, I would never try this. But when I realized my 4th round pick played 46 games last year, that I was picking up every spare goalie I could get off waivers and that 11 of my last twelve draft picks didn't finish the year on my team last year, I thought I would draft seven goalies in the last seven rounds and try to get lucky. I jumped the gun a little just because I know everyone else is thinking quality backups too. This way I thought I could grab a 4th round skater. I do realize that there are risks but really I am just embracing how I always play anyway.

    There's always a couple guys in a draft grabbing the guys you like. I'm happy I'm grabbing Temek's guys.

    Well between not being there for draft and Malkin injury + Buff (cant even move this guy to an IR spot :/ ) there's zero chance of me not being in bottom 4.
    Since my only other league I was in folded, I won't waste so much time this year sifting through hockey stats.

    Every league has four relegation spots now to even the playing field for everyone.

    And even if you're in the expert league, don't give up so easily. You clearly have the chops for this if you got this far. A lot of movement can happen during the year. The draft isn't everything.

    Good luck to you!

    Isn't every year of owning Malkin and Buff filled with missed games?

    Technically you are not playing from behind yet!

    The one year I won the championship in my league we were almost to all star break and I was around 7 out of 10. I was actively shopping my roster (non-keepers) to whoever would give me improved draft picks for next years draft. I found a path to victory and made some trades (on the surface losing them) and found a way to climb out!

    OMG. How is my team such hot garbage this year? stuck down at the bottom, 15 point from the next team. Unbelievable. My goaltending has obviously been trash and should improve, but to have my skaters seemingly slumping across the board as well? Dammit Temek! Why weren't your projections so on the mark last year when you had me in 2nd!!!!

    I feel like so far there's been more disappointments this year and/or players playing greatly different then their predictions... Not sure if this is true and I also didn't purchase Dobbers guide this year so can't really compare.
    Still lots of season left for things to even out though.

    I would say it's pretty similar in terms of disappointments/surprises.
    That being said, I have a bunch of guys I drafted that haven't quite lived up to expectations.

    Anyone looking to make a move?

    I'm more disappointed in some players I don't own. If I never hear the names McDavid, Draisaitl or Pastrnak again, it'll be too soon. And, as always, my ability to start/sit goalies.

    I think you all should be really nice to me and let me pick up Big Buff if he ever comes back
    I did draft him but I can't put him on IR or anything... and he is actually injured right now :/

    Been a challenge just to stay above the relegation zone, and I expect that to continue unless Price and Gibson improve. But given their teams, who knows...

    There's some games played discrepancies that should factor in, although games in hand only matter if you actually get them played. With weekly waivers, this league is harder than most to make up serious ground, which is why I'd prefer to run a little hot. Not this year though.

    The one stat anomaly. Temek leads the league in shots and is dead last in goals. That is just wrong.
