    Finally just finished drafting in my keeper league. I had the most picks of any team, with 16. It's a 16 team league and each team has a roster of roughly 95 players including NHL, minors and juniors. I think I made out very well.

    (2nd overall) ==> Gabriel Landeskog, LW
    (14th overall) ==> Mark McNeill, C
    (15th overall) ==> Matt Puempel, LW
    (28th overall) ==> John Gibson, G
    (41st overall) ==> Oscar Klefbom, D
    (47th overall) ==> Adam Lowry, LW
    (58th overall) ==> Duncan Siemens, D
    (62nd overall) ==> Shane McColgan, RW
    (63rd overall) ==> Reid Boucher, LW
    (65th overall) ==> Jamie Oleksiak, D
    (73rd overall) ==> William Karlsson, C
    (81st overall) ==> Colin Jacobs, C
    (83rd overall) ==> Tobias Rieder, C
    (84th overall) ==> Alan Quine, C
    (85th overall) ==> Alexei Marchenko, D
    (103rd overall) ==> Keegan Lowe, D
    (119th overall) ==> Garrett Meurs, C

    Also, had previously signed: Magnus Hellberg, Nathan Lieuwen and Andrew Shaw during the season because of their age.

    So realistically I walked away with the first two goalies drafted!


    What do you think?

    Good job. It looks like you got some people in the lower rounds that could turn into productive NHL forwards (Rieder, Jacobs, McColgan) and Marchenko could be a good pickup.

    This opinion is coming from someone who's never actually been in a keeper league though, so take my opinion with a grain of salt.

    I can't say anyone who picked Landeskog second overall made out well, but it looks like some good names dropped inexplicably low for you.

    1. Struggling team who needs young NHL talent ASAP.
    2. Massive Avs fan.
    3. Love Huberdeau, but didn't want a Panther, especially one that might take a year or two.
     
  5. How did you get those steals?!

    I like the Rieder and Quine picks.

    Just curious, where did Jaskin go in your draft?

    People just didn't seem to value them because they are "big" and more defence-first kind of guys.

    I thought they were excellent grabs considering they have very high likely-hood of making the NHL compared to guys picked in the late 2nd round.

    You seem pretty high on Puempel to draft him at 15. Could you explain a bit why you went a wee bit off board?

    Been high on him since last year. I just think you can teach goal scoring. And when you are talking about a pure fantasy draft....pure goal scorers don't come around too easily. Have to take them when you have a chance.

    The reason I ask is that I picked him at the 18th spot on my own fantasy league. I've been getting some flak from others and I've been second guessing myself.

    I'm just glad I'm not the only one who thinks the kid has A LOT of potential.

    You won't be catching any heat when the kid is a 30 goal scorer in the NHL in 3-4 years.

    Very nice I like it. Some good high end players, and then quite a few players late with upside. I might have gone for more of a homerun pick at 2 than Lando, but it's not a bad pick by any means. I'll post my draft it's actually fairly similar to yours.

    3rd - Strome
    12th - Puempel
    16th - Grimaldi
    46th - Klefbom
    66th - Tvrdon
    81st - Kichton
    89th - Marchenko
    91st - Kessy
    92nd - McColgan

    Lucky to have Boucher fall a bit in your draft. I had him pegged right around that number and someone took him at 45th in my league.

    Nice draft. I'm sure in a couple of years McColgan will be one of those players who people say "how did he fall that far?"

    38 - Brandon Saad
    41 - Scott Mayfield
    48 - Daniel Catenacci
    108 - Sean Kuraly
    138 - Reece Scarlett
    168 - Max Everson

    Wow, that's a really great draft! As others of mentioned, you really stole some gems in the mid to late rounds. For me, the highlights were Klefbom, Oleksiak, McColgan, Lowe, and Puempel. Klefbom and Oleksiak were just larceny at where you got them. I think both McColgan and Lowe are steals as well and will be regarded as so, years down the road. Finally, as a Sens fan, I really like Puempel's offensive upside, I just hope his hip holds up. He is arguably the purest scorer in the draft and was definitely worth the risk as 15. I'm jealous, I didn't have any 1st round picks in my draft. I did however have a couple of 2nds and a sh*tload of mid to late round picks, but there are a bunch of savvy GM's in my league and pickings were slim. Any insight would be appreciated...

    (in no particular order)

    Matt Nieto
    Keegan Lowe
    Seth Ambroz
    JG Pageau
    Fredrik Claesson

    No reason to second guess yourslef on that one, I also drafted him at 15 in my league. Offensively in the draft he is probably top 10.

    Cool.

    I expected Jaskin to go around there in my draft, but he slipped to me at #33 and I was pretty excited.


    My draft went like:

    #5 - Ryan Strome
    #10 - Mika Zibanejad
    #11 - Sven Bartschi
    #24 - Stefan Noesen
    #28 - Tyler Biggs
    #30 - Ty Rattie
    #33 - Dimitrij Jaskin
    #43 - Brett Ritchie

    The only pick I wasn't really happy with was Ritchie. I was banking on Sproul and he went one spot ahead of me, so it came down to Ritchie and Rask.

    Hey, it's the Oilman! I saw the draft and thought: That looks awfully familiar... ;)

    Here's mine from the same league:

    1- RNH
    17- Matthew Puempel
    32- Rocco Grimaldi
    42- Ryan Sproul
    46- Matt Nieto
    48- Adam Clendening


    If anyone is interested, one spot is open: SJ Sharks, last year's champs. 24 solid GMs in a 25 team league. PM myself or the Oilman! Woot!!
