Overall I think you and Teams 1 and 3 had the best draft.
Thanks, I strongly debated between Grigs and Forsberg, but between the Russia risk and the fact that Forsberg should be a winger, I took the Swede. As you can see, Team 1 loves him some Russians! He's swinging for the fences, and I gotta admire that. My High risk player was Glennie. For the draft position, I hope he pays off. Team 3 absolutely stole Gally and Silfverberg. The fact that Silfverberg will have to be called up to his Pro team after 20 games is the only downside (a downside only if Silf isn't tearing it up!).

Why didn't anyone draft Hertl? He should be picked up immediately.

After re-reading the Prospect eligibility section again after 3 months, I noticed I mis-remembered the rules. In the Pro-draft, you were allowed to draft anyone NOT in this year's draft class, so long as they were in ESPN's database (so that they could be inputted to the league and the commish didn't want to wait for ESPN to update...).
This left players like Silfverberg (dear god I hope I'm spelling his name right!), Schultz, and a few other anomalies available in the Prospect draft.
So yes, most of those players you listed were taken, with the exception of Hertl, Nieto, and Merrill. Would you drop Glennie or Miller for any of them?
