Where did I do better?




Well I'm done my drafts for my two pools this year, and thought I'd ask for advice on where I did better.  Draft A is an ESPN keeper league in it's first season, so of course, I had last pick (12 of 12).  We'll be keeping 4 players at the end of the season.  The scoring categories are: G, A, +/-,  PIM, PPP, SHG, SOG (then for Goalies) Wins, Saves, GAA, ShutOuts

 

12 Anze Kopitar, LA C  
13 Ilya Kovalchuk, NJ LW  
36 Marc-Andre Fleury, Pit G  
37 Tomas Vokoun, Wsh G  
60 John Tavares, NYI C  
61 Phil Kessel, Tor RW  
84 Chris Stewart, StL RW  
85 Jonathan Quick, LA G  
108 Steve Downie, TB RW  
109 Brent Burns, SJ D  
132 David Krejci, Bos C  
133 Jamie Benn, Dal LW  
156 Marek Zidlicky, Min D  
157 Evander Kane, Wpg C  
180 Kevin Shattenkirk, StL D  
181 Travis Hamonic, NYI D  

 

I may have jumped the gun on Kovalchuk, but I think he can't have a worse season than last year.  And last year's second half actually was ok, so if he produces like that all year, I won't look so dumb.  I did get a little chirped for that pick though.   Would Parise have been a smarter pick, because I almost took him instead.  I'm happy to have Tavares, he's a certain keeper.   I hope C. Stewart produces, but I'm not certain he'll live up to the expectations.   My Defense overall isn't the best, but I picked them mostly late so I get what I deserve.  Hamonic is there mostly just for the PIMs.

 

 

And here is draft B.   It is in another keeper league, where my keepers were Kopitar, P. Kane, Toews, Hall and Price.  The scoring is the same as Draft A, except this league also tracks GWG.  I was advised against picking a goalie first round, but everyone before me had drafter one, so I could not pass it up.  Hopefully Lehtonen pulls through, he is not a favourite of mine.  We'll be having 6 keepers at the end of this season, but no more than 2 from any position, so despite getting the great Logan Couture, he won't likely be a keeper for me.  Any comments on where to improve this lot?
