Thanks for starting this,
might as well post my thoughts
I had a similar drafting plan as Chicleteur, wanting to try and grab guys that help in all areas but at the same time i was using an excel sheet that tracks all the picks and lets me know what i stat i need to improve in.
I drafted last which right off the hop meant i had to go G,G to start the draft and even in doing that would get weaker T1 goalies but 2 decent goalies either way.
C - Getzlaf, Toews, Stastny, Fisher
LW- Nash, Ott, Doan, Ladd
RW - Lupul, Wheeler, Brouwer, Heatley
D - Byfuglien, Burns, Visnovsky, Coburn, Pitkanen, Josi
G - Howard, Schneider
BN - Bobrovsky, Peverley, Schultz, Samuelsson, Vermette
As i mentioned i started GG, i was hoping (but not expecting) to land 1 of the big 3 g's or Rask, with none of them lasting to me i had to grab what i thought was the best of the rest
With Howard and Schneider i do have some risk, but hopefully they can cover my stats for me. I wanted to get a 3rd goalie but tried to hold off as longs as possible since i had to draft 2 G's so early and it seemed that every time I had a G ready to pick he went and it pushed me back another round.
As it is with any of these Dobber drafts lots of guys are on the same page. With me picking last i had big breaks between picks so it was hard for me to really plan anything as the guys i had lined up would just keep flying off the board. I stuck to my rankings as best as i could and continued to grab players based on stats i needed. I did catch a small issue in my sheet after about 10 rounds, i had one of the stats mislabelled and couldn't understand how i kept targeting a stat that i wasn't improving in it. As it turns out i ended up what i consider to be very well balanced, outside of +/- which i always think is a hard stat to draft anyway.
On paper (outside of my team of course) i like the looks of Chicleteur and Zorro but hopefully the league will start up and we can see how it all unfolds.
