This is my first year doing fantasy hockey, but I wouldn't call myself a rookie. I'm a hardcore Bruins fan, and have been doing fantasy baseball/football for quite awhile, so I know what to do. I just don't really follow hockey as much outside of watching my Bruins play, so I could use some advice on the lower tier players and what I could do to improve. Who I should potentially sell high on and offer as trade bait, ect. ect. Anyways, I am in a YAHOO 12 person default league.
Roster positions: C, C, LW, LW, RW, RW, D, D, D, D, G, G
Roto head to head scoting: G, A, PPP, SOG, +/-, PIM, GAA, W, S%, SO
My currrent team:
LW: Logan Couture
LW: Max Pacioretty (really hate how I can't IR him atm)
LW/C: Nathan Gerbe
RW: Tyler Seguin (bummed we traded him away)
RW: Jarome Iginla (had to take a Bruin =x)
LW/RW: Johan Franzen
D: Matthew Carle
D: Paul Martin
D: Jonas Brodin
D: Mike Green
D: Jay Boumeester
G: King Henry
G: V. Fasth
Here are a few players on my watch list as far as free agents go, but not sure who I should drop if any to get them. That is my current dillema being a first time F. Hockey player:
Steve Downie: Loving the PIM but not so sure about anything else, still, might grab him if I am needing help in this department, but so far so good.
Frans Nielsen: 4 goals and 4 a's but will he keep it up?
Marc E V: His stats are amazing, gets 20 mins of TIO but only 8 SOG is why im iffy. Still, plays on the Sharks so his +/- should be legit all season.
Jussi Jokinen: Plays on the Pens, always a plus. Was debating dropping Gerbe for him.
Matt Irwin: Another Sharks defender that looks good early. I would lean closer to Irwin then Marc V, but who who should I drop to get him, at a crossroads here.
I really thought I was going to get Rask with my first pick, because I had 6th pick overall. However, in bizzare move that I don't understand, someone took Rask with the first pick!!! I couldn't believe that!!!! So I went with King Henry, but I am regretting my pick, because Tavares was still up. Kind of wish I grabbed him instead =(. Anways, I didn't think i did too bad with my draft. I drafted late, so week 2 THANKFULLY is my first round of scoring (king Henry was terrible early). Currently up 6-3. Would be 7-3 if Pavelec didn't let in that goal!!!!
Love this site, wish I came upon it before I drafted =x
