    Default Interesting Hypothetical

    So I just joined a cap dynasty and we start by picking an actual NHL team. I went 7th after Colorado, NYR, Tor, Bos, Tb and Vancouver.

    Who would you take??

    Remember yuou use their actual salary caps and everything! Ill post mine after.

    *** My personal choice is Tampa Bay- you get a gamebreaker at every position. Kucherov, Hedman and Vasilevkiy are all basically 1st rounders- lol!

    ** Colorado a close second- Mack and Makar make a magical one two. Grubauer is a decent enough option and there are a few intriguing prospect options.

    * I didnt go Buffalo (Eichel, Dahlin, and Olofsson held back only by a brutal goalie choice- although you COULD take Ukko Pekka) or Florida (Bob, Barkov, Ekblad OR Yandle and again some intrguing prospects Denisenko, Tippett and Knight all viable!).

    Let me know if I effed up!!!

    I don't think you screwed up. That core is young and elite enough to run with anyone. How many from that team do you select for your roster? Argument could easily be made TB should have gone before Bos or Van

    I think Tampa has to be the first choice in a setup like this for sure.

    As far as who to take at 7. Buffalo would be close, hard to pass up Eichel but you are right about the goaltending.

    I think I would have to go with Vegas although Washington, Pittsburgh, Carolina, Winnipeg and Philly would be considerations too.
    Without me, it's only "aweso".

    I'm surprised Edmonton isn't getting any love here. I'd strongly consider hitching my wagon to McDavid/Drai if given the option at 7th with the other teams listed gone. I don't have a ton of experience with leagues like this but I love top end talent, maybe too much here.

    I agree. I think it really depends on how this is set up. Some allow you X # of players from any position. Some 1 from F, D and G .. if it's open then Edm flies up the list. if it's 1 from each position grouping TB comes in really high.

    Pretty sure this league is in the Classifieds section right now, and you get a F, D, and G to keep. At least I'm assuming it is (that's the kind of info we need).

    Colorado is the far and away first choice. MacK at 6M, Makar at 925K (I know only for a year), and Grubauer at 3.3M. That's basically 10M for your first three players, while the guys picking TBay, EDM, TOR, are going to be paying that for their top player, let alone all three.

    I can definitely see the appeal and flexibility that the Rangers offer, but there's too many questions there for my liking. Boston doesn't have a defence man that would make the pick worthwhile.

    Vancouver is another interesting choice, taking the last year of Pettersson and Hughes at less that 2M total, and just accepting whatever Markstrom gets paid.

    Other options: Carolina (Svech, Hamilton, Mrazek), WPG (Scheifele, Pionk, Helle), WSH (Ovie, Carlson, Samsonov), Pittsburgh (Crosby, Letang, Murray/Jarry).

    A darkhorse is Philly. Couturier is an awesome option, while Hart is going to be the best goalie to own in a cap league next year. Grab Provorov on D and you're pretty solid.

    In the end though, I think my top three are COL, WPG, VAN.

    Good advise here and I agree. Colorado and Van appear to be gone. Jets may be the next best choice.

    As the person who set up this league, I'll put out the picks we've had so far, since we are lacking content to chat about (and it is 1F, 1D, 1G, 1 prospect).

    1. Colorado
    2. Rangers
    3. Toronto
    4. Boston
    5. Tampa
    6. Vancouver
    7. Edmonton
    8. Buffalo
    9. Carolina
    10. Winnipeg
    11. Washington
    12. New Jersey
    13. Philly

    Quite a few interesting picks imo

    It's kind of an interesting twist. You know you are getting 3 players, distributed in a specific arrangement, and the question is what direction do you go, as most NHL teams won't have great cap fantasy options for all 3 spots.

    There's a team I'm surprised isn't gone already, interested to see when they go.
    10 team Head-to-head true dynasty. Roster 33, draft 2, cut down before season. Start 1 G, 1 backup G, 6 D, 12 F arranged in 4 lines of 3. Only categories that matter are Goals, Assists, Save% with a shutout bonus. Having NHL teammates helps.

    G: Bobrovsky
    Backup G: F Andersen
    D: Ekblad, Yandle, Carlson, DeAngelo, Letang, Makar
    F1: Couturier, Giroux, Voracek
    F2: Schiefele, Wheeler, MacKinnon
    F3: Stamkos, Point, JT Miller
    F4: Bertuzzi, Tavares, Seguin

    Bench:
    G:
    D: Barrie, M Reilly, Heiskanen, Klingberg, Morissey, Weegar
    F: Bailey, Benn, Guentzel, Johnsson, Labanc, Mikheyev, Necas
    Reserve: Datsyuk
