Draft Roster Game

Postby canaan on Thu Jul 18, 2013 3:32 pm

Derived from boredom

Pick a Year and make your roster based on the draft of that year.
*players have to be playing their natural position (e.g. drafted as a center, has to be lined up as a center)
*up the difficulty if you wish (e.g. the 2003 draft, only rounds 1 and 2):

2003 Draft is just bonkers...

A SQUAD (RD 1 and 2 only)

L. Eriksson-E. Staal-Vanek
Michalek-Getzlaf-Perry
O'Sullivan-Parise-Backes
Tambellini-Bergeron-Zherdev

Suter-Weber
Phaneuf-Seabrook
Coburn-Burns

Fleury
Crawford

B SQUAD (Whole Draft, minus the A SQUAD)

MacArthur-Kesler-A. Kostitsyn
Stempniak-Horton-Stewart
Moulson-Carter-Eaves
Dawes-Richards-Fehr

Stuart-Carle
S. O'Brien-Byfuglien
Methot-Enstrom

Howard
Halak

Notables left off:
Kyle Quincey (D)
Bruno Gervais (D)
Paul Bissonnette (D)
Ryan O'Byrne (D)
Jan Hejda (D)
Max Lapierre (C)
Brian Boyle (C)
Kyle Brodziak (C)
Brad Richardson (C)
Nate Thompson (C)
Joe Pavelski (C)

Good luck finding wingers in 2008. Although with the blue liners to choose from, Stamkos might be enough for that team to win.

Interesting, only 6 players from the 2012 draft played a NHL game last season. I thought that number would be higher than that.

You need to place where they were taken in the draft (first rounders by overall and the rest by the round) or undrafted players.

I read an article this year there could be up to 10 rookie players. That would have to be a record of some sort. It used to be your first rounders you wouldn't see for at least a year.

Double class. First year that 18 year olds were allowed. So, 18 AND 19 year olds were permitted after the merger. Was nearly topped off by Gretzky.

At least I don't have a LW centering my 2nd line or Sergei Zubov playing left D.

Tkachuk.

Look, I have Rask and Quick in that order because Rask was drafted ahead of Quick so I wrote down Rask first and then I forgot to remember to waste an hour microanalyzing my roster because I don't have OCD.

I did my roster in 10 minutes and had plenty of time to put thought into each person's spot. I subscribe to the belief that forward position is meaningless after the faceoff. Tkachuk faceoffed a ton because he was good at it. As for Zubov, i'm not sure why you thought that was out of place.

Well, I did it in 5 minutes, I'm pretty sure Zuobv always played the right side and I think that forward position definitely matters.

Whatever, I'll put Quick ahead and Rask and that's that.
