I'm pinch hitting for one of the GMs in the Dobber Expert's League tonight. Insane league with 400 players owned -- 16 teams, 25 skaters per team. We pick 15/16. Trying to determine whether to swap 1.15, 2.02, 3.15 for 1.01 and 3.01 to take Ovechkin, who dominates with the scoring: G,A,PPP,+/-,Hits,SOG | W,GAA,Sv%,SO.

Its that vs. going G-G at 1.15 and 2.02. I think GG is the way to go. Having two of the top 7 or 8 goalies when some teams will only have 1A/1Bs as starters seems to be a good strategy. Then focus on secondary stats with skaters in the remainder of the draft.

Yeah, I definitely like going goalie heavy. They're going to stay stable and steal a lot of wins week by week and the scoring will vary so that you can still win any given weak without high end scorers.

I still believe Bogo is going to pop one of these days, but I just don't see him having the necessary opportunity barring injury.

Kraftster,

So that's something like Rinne/Howard/Thornton for Ovehckin/Anderson.

If those are your options, I definitely do that trade. But I actually think the G-G trade is unwise. There aren't dominant goalies like there are dominant players. And while there are four goalie categories, one is a wildcard (SO) from week to week, and the 1A 1B goalies provide plenty of help in 2/3 categories (GAA SV%).

No!!! Come on. You shouldn't get credit for that pick, especially in my slot, when you don't even know that he signed. BS.

Malka is up. I was thinking about picking him up if he made it to me with this next pick.

That makes me feel a little bit better then. Not like I needed a 6th goalie, I guess...

I have three rookies that I plan on rostering this season, so I have the roster space to give him a brief trial run.

I actually completed intended to draft Thomas when I saw the news, and then I completely forgot when it was my turn to draft this morning. :face:

Ended up going Luongo-Howard at 1.15 and 2.02. 16 team drafts are nuts. First two rounds just for the hell of it were:

1.01 - Alex Ovechkin
1.02 - Sidney Crosby
1.03 - Steven Stamkos
1.04 - Evgeni Malkin
1.05 - Henrik Lundqvist
1.06 - John Tavares
1.07 - Erik Karlsson
1.08 - Tuukka Rask
1.09 - Patrick Kane
1.10 - Pekka Rinne
1.11 - Jonathan Quick
1.12 - P.K. Subban
1.13 - Phil Kessel
1.14 - Corey Crawford
1.15 - Roberto Luongo
1.16 - Antti Niemi

2.01 - Carey Price
2.02 - Jimmy Howard
2.03 - Taylor Hall
2.04 - Sergei Bobrovsky
2.05 - Claude Giroux
2.06 - James Neal
2.07 - Kris Letang
2.08 - Henrik Sedin
2.09 - Craig Anderson
2.10 - Mike Smith
2.11 - Eric Staal
2.12 - Ryan Getzlaf
2.13 - Braden Holtby
2.14 - Corey Perry
2.15 - Marc-Andre Fleury
2.16 - Kari Lehtonen

8 wingers
6 centers
3 defensemen
15 goalies

Worst pick: Henrik Sedin

I thought about him last round before realizing that Teemu was available. It must suck that you have had him planned for this pick all along and I just basically made the pick on the fly. :pop:

I knew I wanted Frolik and Downie and I was trying to decide which of those two to take before I took 35 picks off. Made it so close.
