'12-'13 Fantasy Hockey

Hey guys,
I saw the season thread, but I thought this thread might be a good idea for those in pools looking for advice and all that good stuff. A little backstory: I've come in eighth and second in a 36-person points-only league for cash, second in a 10-person points-only league and am currently taking part in a 12-person points-only league for cash. Hockey is my main passion outside of school, so I thought hey what the heck, maybe people have questions that I can help with or others on the site can help with. The season thread is pretty cluttered with general discussion, so this might be a good idea

Teams in the pool this year must have 6 F, 4 D, 2 G and 4 bench players. 2 points for a goal, 1 point for an assist. 2 points for a goalie win, 3 extra points (5 total) for a shutout.
My team is as follows
Parise/Toews/M. Koivu/Pavelski/E. Staal/Clowe
Shattenkirk/Faulk/Ellis/Goligoski
Ward/Hiller
Voracek/Atkinson/Hedman/Benn (still unsigned)

I've been having problems with keeping Atkinson, as I think he will get about 15-18 goals and 18-20 assists, but Landeskog, Hodgson, Turris and Semin are all still available. Also having Benn eating up a bench position while not playing is brutal, but I do think he will be one of my top two players once he finally signs.

Anybody else? What are your teams like? Questions?

I was thinking of maybe trading for Crosby. I heard he was the best.

That's a good tip. What type of trades have you made so far? I'm pretty attached to my current team, but I think I may need an upgrade on the back end soon here. It's tough to be patient and remember that it's only the start of the season though so that has been holding me back on pulling the trigger so far.

If Niederreiter gets traded to Columbus, does his trade value go up or down?

My flatmate got me to attempt fantasy hockey. Haven't made my team yet, although I did take part in a mock draft which I thought was a real draft. Gonna do the real thing tomorrow. No idea actually how to do good, and I don't even know that much about hockey, but I was too late to sign up for any fantasy basketball leagues so

When in doubt, pick a Canuck. When not picking a Canuck, start doubting yourself.

Don't worry, Canucks are my favourite team

I heard that their starting goaltender isn't doing so hot this season though?

Their problem is that they have two #1 goalies, and the goalie that was supposed to be taking over this year started out poorly while the goalie he was replacing (who is speculated to be traded) had a great few first games, while still losing. Realistically, they should be keeping both, but having both has been creating quite a drama. Look for the new goalie (Cory Schneider) to bounce back while the other goalie (Roberto Luongo) gets traded hopefully before February starts

edit: Also, when in doubt, pick a Penguin

the trick to doing welling in fantasy hockey is picking as many good canadian boys as possible. preferably from ontario.

This is my team right now in our 20 team league (that isn't entirely serious):

Kessel
Iginla
JVR
Doan
Steen
Stewart
MacArthur
Fisher
Havlat
(Boyes, O'Reilly, Boyle)

Pietrangelo
Weber
Liles
Sbisa
Kostka
(Gardiner, Clitsome)

Rask
Niemi
(Reimer)

I've made two trades so far:

To me:
Rask
Fisher

To sucker #1:
Ribeiro
Varly

I had some drafting mishaps goaltending wise so I figured I'd take advantage of a dude with two elite goaltenders that was desperate for any sort of offensive talent and believed more in Varly's abilities as a solid fantasy goalie than he probably should have.


To me:
Weber
Niemi
Havlat

To dude #2:
Edler
Eller
Halak

Not as high on Halak as most people seem to be, Weber > Edler for a multitude of reasons (better ATOI, PIM, +/-, more goals). I mean, it's ****ing Weber. O'Reilly not signing was a risk that failed, and I needed another offensive asset. Havlat is a guy I was hoping would fall enough for me to pick up. Didn't, but I'm high on the guy. He's on a great San Jose second line and I don't think he'll have injury issues. I also will have some offensive depth to shore up my defensive hole (Sbisa) once O'Reilly signs. Niemi is a solid goalie who will give me solid numbers and lots of wins. I can afford to move Halak considering I have Rask and Halak isn't going to be a pure starter. Right after I traded Halak he shit the bed too, which has to help make me less anxious. I could have probably gotten more value, but time was of the essence and I had to work Niemi into the deal.

I'll probably end up making one more deal if all goes well to shore up my defence. So far I'm in first by a pretty good margin though. The guys who haven't stepped up yet have looked sharp and have been held back by bad linemates. I'm expecting JVR and MacArthur to find themselves on a line together soon, and both have looked sharp so far. They haven't produced yet, but they will once the lines are sorted more. I don't have the high end offense like some of the other guys, but my "high end" guys will net me a consistent 30 goals 70-80 points and I have offensive depth, with pretty much everyone being a 20 goal/50 point threat and likely to reach that kind of production. D is great outside of one dude, but once my failed pick gets back here (come on Ryan, Russia is really cold) I can fix that hole. Goaltending is, well, great.

Stick with what you know basically.

This was my other secret. Leafs, former Leafs, Ontario boys. First place. Thank you based Cherry.

What point system does your league use?

no clue, but most people posting here will be in the UG league so somebody will know.

Next season I'll probably get in on some cash leagues, but I'm not much of a fantasy dude. Don't pay enough attention to stat lines. I'm pretty good with my predictions though. Although I doubt I'll do well against people who also know their shit compared to dumb Americans/TSN autodraft.

yeah cash leagues are pretty fun. It's only a $200 prize pool, so it's not too too serious, but it's nice having a bit of a competitive feature to it. A lot of the guys don't really keep up with it though, so they have bench guys getting points but not having them added to their total, so I guess that's a bit of a good thing for me.
