Are you wondering what your plan of attack should be in your fantasy hockey pool this summer? Preparing for a draft? Upset about some trades you made in the past? I'll weigh in with my thoughts on the interesting and important issues.
This week, I took a look at the team submitted to me by DobberHockey reader Jamie M.
The KPL 'Keeper Pool League' (Way to get creative, guys!)
Weekly active rosters consist of 3 C, 6 W (not broken down by LW or RW), 4 D, and 1 G
Points only league
Goals = 1 point
Assists = 1 point
Wins = 2 points
No roster size restrictions for the farm (bench) or the un-activated prospects roster
$65 salary cap
UFA auction and rookie draft each off-season
Trade schedule mirrors the NHL's (trade deadline, etc)
To save myself the time it takes to format and create a table, I'll link you to the rosters page for this league. Jamie’s team is in the middle – Peter’s Pantry.
Outgoing: Luca Caputi, 2nd round draft pick
Incoming: PM Bouchard, 2nd round draft pick
Decent risk to take at the time. Caputi is nothing special.
Outgoing: Mikkel Boedker
Incoming: TJ Hensick, Kyle Turris
Turris is the best of the three. Boedker is the closest to being NHL ready, though, and you are rather thin at wing. Hensick had a great AHL season but he needs to leave Colorado to get an NHL gig. Could be trade bait at the draft.
Outgoing: Joe Corvo
Incoming: Sheldon Souray, Karl Alzner
Great trade. Souray is a
