I was surprised at how tired I was during the draft. Kept having trouble staying awake, even though I had a good cup of coffee at around 8pm. Usually that gets me through anything, but not this time. The Saad pick was a brain fart where I thought someone else was on the clock and not me, and I ended up picking him before time ran out because he was on my screen. Had to do something.
Overall I'm happy though. The goalie hoarding was ridiculous so I thought it would be a good idea to solidify my other categories. I followed a similar strategy to the one I used in the UHL roster draft: fantasyhockeygeek + intuition. I do believe in these tools to get the most out of my picks but it's also key to be able to call audibles at the draft table and change draft strategies to seek an optimal roster.
It was definitely a competitive environment though, and I was happy to see a 25 round draft finish in just three hours. Amazing!
