Just looking for some opinions on how other people might view my picks. Goals and Assists = 1 point, Wins = 1 point and Shutout = 2 bonus points.

Who is the best pick out of these.

Hunwick
Enstrom
Vlasic
Niskanen
Quincey
Babchuk
Campoli
Zybnek Michalek
Oduya.

I think the best are Vlasic, Enstrom, and Hunwick

Babchuk is a wild card.

Scoring is

Goals: 3 points
Assists: 2 points
+/-: 1
PIM: .5

Thanks.

I have another question though.

There are some good players in FA.

Should I switch Claude Giroux with:

Voracek
Callahan
Arnott
Hejduk
Umberger
James Neal
Drury
Berglund
Todd White
Ponikarovsky
Bergeron

I'm leaning toward the bolded ones.

Your centers and bottom 3 D need work. But you have Mike Green, Setoguchi, Smyth and Michalek.

IMO Michalek will have a great year. 30+ goals 60+ points. As will Ryan Smyth. Him+Kopitar could = Magic.

If they play together that is...

What do you guys think of drafting 3 players from the same team?

Good, bad, or doesn't matter?

I'm a bit concerned because I have all the following on one team.

Gilbert, Souray, Vishnovsky, White, Kovalchuk and Kozlov.

Thats 6 players from 2 teams. :blink:

Should I be worried?

thats really risky imo
kovalchuk and white play on the same line(i think) and kzlov and if white goes into a slump they all do
same with your defence

I have a dilemma. I have Perry and Ryan in a pool already and I need to pick a defenseman. It would either be Vlasic or Wisniewski. Who would be the better pick? I like Wisniewski better because he had 24pts in just 48games and vlasic 36pts in 82 games. But Vlasic would have increased powerplay time with the subtraction of Ehroff and being able to feed Heatley, Thornton, and Setoguchi the whole season. But I dont know Wisniewski may be playing with the best line in hockey with perry,ryan,and getzlaf. But i have thought that maybe i should get vlasic because having 3 ducks in a pool may result in some bad games if they get blown out and getting vlasic may spread the wealth a bit more. Thoughts? Vlasic or Wisniewski

Goals=2pt
Assists=1pt
+/-=1pt
PIM=.25pt/min
SH pts=1pt bonus
