    Hey guys i am in hockey sim leagues and I have a problem:

    I dont know who i should draft every year. Currently I am trying to rebuild my teams and was wondering if anyone would be kind enough to be my scout and help me in determining who to draft. If you dont want to or think its stupid I understand but please I really need help because I have no idea what I am doing.


    Thanks
    Jeff Small

    Hahahahaha


    Seriously though, I'm sure the 35,000 armchair gm's on this site would be more than willing to help. Post your current roster and your upcoming picks.

    Wow, you need help at every position. I think you shouldn't draft a goalie till the 3rd round. The goalies this year aren't rated that high, and even the best rated ones won't go till the 2nd. What spot are your picks in the rounds? 1st overall, 5th etc?

    What sim leagues are you in? I hope it's not any I'm in, wouldn't want to help the enemey.

    You need a bit of everything.Whoever who you pick, he cant´t be completely wrong. I would go for a winger if I were you or a defenseman

    He says he needs a goalie and drafting one is not going to help him now, he needs to make a trade.

    In your league you are drafting strictly 07 amateur player? If not you can try and sign one ala Jonas Hiller, what are the rules regarding signings.

    You don't have many picks in your league and it should not be a worry. The draft picks are along way from helping you out now.:)

    This year I have only 7 picks in a 7 round draft. The last 2 years draft day was a big party for me.

    V. Khomiski ($, 06), V. Koistinen ($, 06), K. Versteed (04), J. Peters (04), L. Stephernson (04), A. Berry (05), B. Jones (05), B. Salcido (05), B. Bradford (05), C. Rau (05), D. Syvret (05), J. Boll (05), J. May (05), J. Lavallee (05), MA Gragnani (05), R. Macias (05), Z. Bearson (05), R. Callahan (04), M. Funk (04), Y. Alexandrov (06), M. Forney (06), S. Mason (06), B. Holloway (06), J. Reimer (06), B. Hughes (06), A. Biega (06), R. Daniels (06), S. Chaput (06), J. Mursak (06), J. Schultz (06), A. Greene (06), M Cheverie (06), S. O'Brien (06), D. Zaripov (06), A. Foster (06), J. Hunt (06)


    From those picks I have traded Little, Giroux, Popperle, Ryder and Vlasic.

    Trade for a goalie, involving what I don't know. It depends on who you like to acquire. They won't all have the same asking price. It looks like your league keeps players on after they retire, for how long?

    You have a goalie or 2 that you can deal in a package with prospects to obtain something better. You still need to find a trading partner though.:)

    I don't think you can make a team that can contend out of what you have. You don't have enough depth in any area to make trades to try and make a team to contend now, and your prospect pool is ok but not enough to make the trades to really beef up your roster. Goalies usually take years to develop as prospects (and even an extra year in a sim league) so drafting a goalie won't help you now. And to get a really good goalie you would have to trade one of your few other really good players which you don't have the depth to make up for. Personally, I would blow up the team trade away vets for young players, prospect, and picks.

    It does look as if though he is already going the rebuild way, which is a nessessety. There's no real top end goalies this year, so with the first two picks, I'd go BPA between forwards and defense. With the other 2nd rounder, I'd try and downgrade and see if can pick up 2 3rds and a 4th, or something like that. Use the new picks still BPA but throw the 2 4ths at the best remaining goalies. It's hard to determine how to rate the goalies as everyone's lists are differant. Find a list, and just go with it is a safe bet. Pick up say Duff88's or Cups which are both here on HF boards prospects board. I just used as many differant sources as I could and combined everyone's opinions I could. My list, and many others are available on the Oilers comprehensive draft page. Nice place to look for differant info.

    The reason I said what I said was because the way he was asking what the weaknesses of his team were was like he was trying to fill holes now. Because his depth of young players at all positions is thin, and he was talking like he would jump out early and pick a goalie when really the best ones in this draft are rated in the 2nd and 3rd rounds.

    Well it really depends how your draft falls and where you end up but there should be several good players avalible there. Any or all of Gagner, Cherepanov, Alzner, or Esposito could be had with a 7-10th pick. I would recommend one of them.

    I have definitly done the rebuilding approch (already trading Giggy for some much needed solid prospects). What happened to Tyler Sexsmith I thought he was going to be good? Also what is your understanding of Riku Helenius?

    Unless the price is cheap, don't waste your time trying to trade up. These guys aren't any better than what will be available at 7-15, that is the mark of this draft. Any of the top 12-13 guys could go 1st overall. With Gagner, Esposito, Alzner, etc. available in your range, it would be foolish to cough up extra picks or prospects that you clearly need in order to move up to grab one of those guys that really isn't any better, and in fact, have bigger question marks. The only one that should be a top level talent is Kane, the rest are up for debate. I don't put Turris, Van Riemsdyk or Voracek much higher that the rest, if at all.

    You need to be thinking to yourself that with your roster, you are not going to be contending any time soon, and you have a deficiency of high end young talent which means you need to restock that. Your best bet with this draft is to actually trade down from where you are drafting and add more picks. This class is said to be quite deep but not a real high end draft. Getting a later 1st along with a pair of other picks for that one you hold now would be a wise move. Quantity overdoes quality in this case.

    he is probably the best goalie in the draft, but he's still only like a mid 2nd rounder. Maybe even a little later.

    You are in a 30 team league I hope. If not anything you read here is useless to you.

    Any goalie drafted this year won't play in the NHL before 4 years, unless you struck gold. So if you go by that your only option is to acquire more picks by trading down. Then you can pick more players and hopefully some another GM is willing to give you a legite NHLer for him.
