Categories are for skaters: G, A, +/-, PIM, SOG, PPP
Goalies: W, GAA, SV%, SHO
C: Jordan Staal, Mikko Koivu, Vincent Lecavalier
RW: Martin St. Louis, Michael Ryder,Alexander Semin (RW,LW)
LW: Evander Kane, Max Pacioretty, Joffrey Lupul (RW,LW)
D: Erik Karlsson, Zdeno Chara, P.K. Subban
G: Henrik Lundqvist, Mike Smith, Corey Crawford
Little light on the offense I feel. I tried a different strategy this year. There is a utility spot which one of these skaters will be in as well. Thoughts or opinions?
Welcome to the forum. I just want to say that it's good that you have provided all that information - very helpful. There's just one more thing that you should provide - the type of league. Depending on the situation (for this and/or future threads), there could be a significant difference in advice depending on whether it's a H2H league or Roto.
As for advice, I agree with the others you are a bit light on offense, however being a shortened season you never know who could get hot early and that could make them more valuable given less time to cool off. Also, if you get a few breakouts and guys stay healthy then it could be very competitive. There is some risk and some reliance on guys matching or building on career seasons (Pacioretty, Lupul).
I wouldn't panic, and if it's a H2H league then all you have to do is make the playoffs. If it's a Roto league then have a close eye on the category standings to find out what strengths/weakenesses will be uncovered more thoroughly.
