I think this is the best summary of the team to this point.
Simply not strong enough. There's a big drop-off in talent after the top 4 (Tavares, Seguin, J.Thornton, Eriksson). I see this team struggling big time in G, GWG, SOG. You need to start 9F and you've got 4F that I'd identify as VERY GOOD or better. I've got serious doubts that J-Williams, Vrbata, and Ryder will come anywhere close to repeating their years.
Overstocked. And as Derek Reese says, hopefully you can trade these guys. You've got possibly 6D that I'd consider as VERY GOOD... but you've only got 4D spots to fill. So it's overkill. If you can move them, great - but as pure balance goes, should've gone after more forwards.
A+. In most H2H leagues, I don't advocate going after so many solid goalies... but as soon as you throw in a category like SAVES, well, that's a category you can count on every week, so I like that you have 3 #1 workhorse goalies.
Overall, I think this is a 3rd-5th best team in a 10-team league. If you can move a couple D-men for upgrades at forwards (which you NEED to do, at some point), then you could flip this into a top 3 team.
