The trade you countered with do that. Because Montador is USELESS. And getting Thomas gives you crazy goalies. Theodore will be backup anyway.

Hey all, I'm new to this part of the forum. I've played a gm game before but I wanted to get into this sim league stuff but I have no idea how to play. Do you actually like play the games or does one person sim them? I also have a couple more questions if someone wants to show me like a list of rules or something like that it would be greatly appreciated.

I am in a deadlock with another GM and we are desperate to get something done before October 1st. It's been 4 days of this now. He really needs a goaltender and is after Cam Ward and he would also like to snag Simone Gagne as well. He has Corey Perry which is one of the best Hockey Pool players, Daniel Sedin and Rinne. I need Rinne to fill Wards void and I really want Perry or Sedin. Teams are as follows:

Myself:

C: Zetterberg, Tavares, Kesler, M.Koivu, Modano, Duchene
LW: Simon Gagne, David Perron
RW: Langenbrunner, Shirokov, Pominville
D: Lidstrom, Pronger, Keith, Zidlicky
G: Nabokov, Ward


His Team:

C: Krejci, Stamkos, Horton
LW: D. Sedin, Scott Hartnell, Erik Cole
RW: Corey Perry, D. Backes, Knuble, Sykora
D: Phaneuf, Boyle, Ehrhoff, Bogosian
G: Turco, Rinne, Anderson

We ahve been trying to come to a conclusion that sees ward and gagne go his way and perry,sedin and rinne going my way. Suggest any good package ideas !!

If I'm not mistaken, Cam.

Perry gets you PIMs, Sedin and Perry are both PPG players.. Gagne is a flag, but he and Pominville are PPG players too. Zidlicky's good for about 40-50 points, probably on the upper end with the new Wild system, but his plus/minus is going to be murder. Cam is a giant upgrade over Rinne though.. but I guess it depends on who you pick up from waivers. If you pick up a defenseman of quality, around 40-50 points (if they're still available) or good PIMs and +/-.. then it would look like a completely different trade.

Well it really and completely depends on who is left when it's your pick. Unless you have the 1st pick, in which case take Ovechkin... but otherwise it's really hard to give advice.

i dont just mean the first player.

Thats easy enough.

How bout some forwards, defensemen ?

First round - i usually grab a superstar
second-top goalie
third-superstar
fourth-top defenseman or quality forward
fifth- second top goalie
sixth-doan type player who will consistently get me pts across the board
7th-quality winger
8th-probably a defenseman
9th-foward
10-forward
11-defenseman like bieska if hes around
12-def like ehroff
13-backup goalie or def

Just make you draft 2 good goalies in the first 5 rounds. I usually take 1 goalie in round 2-3 and another in round 4-5.

currently my team looks like:

center: h. sedin, d. krejci, c. hodgson, j. tavares
left wing: d. sedin, s. hartnell, m. lucic
right wing: j. franzen, j. pominville, b. little
defense: s. weber, a. edler, c. ehrhoff, k. letang
goal: n. backstrom, j. hiller

i usually tend to roll the dice on canucks players and this year is no exception. i'm usually successful doing so (won my league last year, 2nd the year before). in fact i currently put in a waiver claim for s. shirokov, dropping b. little. should go through monday.

the risk with having so many players from one team for me is i play in a head to head league, not rotisserie, so if theres a week where the canucks dont have many games i'm apt to get smoked.

This was my picks for a 9 person pool that required 6 forwards 3 d-men and 2 goals. Points are as followed;
goal= 1 assist = 1 goalie win = 1 goalie shutout = 2

I had 8th Pick

1. Mike Green
2. Danny Heatley
3. H. Sedin
4. D. Sedin
5. A. Markov
6. C. Osgood
7. P. Stastny
8. S. Varlimov
9. O. Jokinen
10. Ryan Whitney
11. M. Michalik

The position you pick makes all the difference. The top 3 guys are obvious (Sid, Ovie, Malkin) Always keep in mind scoring defencemen can be worth picking up early. Guys like Green Markov and Streit and be good if available.

Deep Sleepers this year are.

1. Vermette
2. Havlat. Not a deep sleeper but expect him to show up in minnesota
3. Paul Kariya
4. Tim Connelly ( injury problem )
5. Andy Mcdonald
6. Bernier
7. Shirokov ( only if you have bench players )


The truth about hockey pools is its not the first 10 players you take that win the pool. Its the last 5.

Im in 3 professional pools this year. 200$ entry to each.
The fact that you got Jokinen past 50 players means your pool has nobody with any skill. ( except you ??)
Nice Early pick with Heatley, Where did Vinny L go ?

Sorry it's Cam Ward in the deal.

So Team 1 is trading : Ward, Gagne, Zidlicky, Pominville
And Team 2 trades : Perry D Sedin and Rinne


C.Ward>Rinne Team 2 obviously wins

Gagne = D Sedin This one is too close to call. I will leave it up to individual judgement

Pominville<Perry Team 1 gets a huge win here but it balances the hit taken in the Rinne/Ward part

Zidlicky....Helps Team 2 which has a horrid defense


Team 2 needs centres and defense and netminding with Netminding being the biggest need

Team 1 needs left wingers and amybe an upgrade in the right wing department
