    Just did my first fantasy hockey draft ever, Feedback Please

    So I really dont follow Hockey much at all, but with the likelihood of no NBA season I figure I would start. The only knowledge I had of picking these players were occasionally hearing there names on sports center, and remembering the players from the USA team that did well last year(or the year before, not sure).

    10 Team league, standard ESPN scoring I had 2nd pick.

    F- Steven Stamkos
    F- Ryan Kesler...didnt realize he was hurt damn, I remember him from the playoffs
    F- Ryan Getzlaf
    F- Patrick Kane
    F- Brandon Dubinsky
    F- Michael Grabner
    F- Patrice Bergeron
    F- Ryan Callahan
    D- Nicklas Lidstrom
    D- Erik Johnson
    D- Erik Karlsson
    D- Mark Giordano
    D- Cam Fowler
    UTIL- Tyler Ennis
    Bench- Tyler Sequin
    Bench- Scott Gomez
    Bench- Jamie Langenbrunner
    Bench- Jordan Staal

    Goalies- Tim Thomas, Martin Brodeur. Bench- Niklas Backstrom

    I cant evaluate my team, as I haven't even heard of a bunch of the players. I was hoping you guys can give me some good/bad things about my team, I just hope this team can stay semi-competitive and not be a last place team the entire year, as I look to actually want some Hockey this year.

    What do you guys think?

    Pretty good shape in net. Stacked at center with Getz and Stamkos. Duby should have a nice year playing top line minutes and so should Cally now that he's wearing a C. All your D are great picks, I'd probably cut Gomez and Langenbrunner, there have to be better guys out there.

    Pretty good team, especially for a first draft and the Kesler mistake.

    Wow, a lot better then what I expected, thanks for the feedback.

    My reasoning behind the Scott Gomez pick was I knew the name because he was really good and then the Rangers signed him to a mega contract and he sucked.

    Never heard of Langrenbrunner, but I looked up best Amercian hockey players on google and his name popped up lol.

    Yeah I'm in the same position as this guy except I did my first one about two weeks into the season. Hmm I wonder if I'll get any feedback in here. Anyways here it goes:

    F-Henrik Sedin
    F-Zach Parise
    F-Claude Giroux
    F-John Tavares
    F-Vincent Lacavalier
    F- Gabriel Landeskog
    F- Shane Doan
    F-Teemu Selanne
    F- Nikolai Kulemin
    UTIL- Tyler Seguin
    D- Keith Yandle
    D- Drew Doughty
    D- James Wisniewski
    D- Brent Seabrook
    D- Ryan Suter
    G- Pekka Rinne
    G- Craig Anderson
    BN-James van Riemsdyk
    BN-Bryan McCabe
    BN- Brooks Laich
    BN-Erik Cole (Autopick)
    BN- Martin Erat (Autopick)

    I'm really excited about my Forwards. I think I'm pretty stacked there. I picked Giroux 34th overall and was worried that maybe I reached for him considering Getzlaf and Kessel were still on the board but I wasn't going to not pick him. I'm a little worried about Anderson though. Should I drop him and pick up someone up?

    Hedberg, Rask, and Steve Mason are available.
