Thanks everybody. I am going to stand pat.
On defensemen - I agree, I grabbed Yandle and Goligoski far before I wanted. My plan going in was to get one or two good defensemen later than the 5th round, and wait for the last 4 rounds or so to get my last two. But by the time I picked Yandle, the following were gone: Byfuglien, Weber, Green (went in the 2nd round!), Doughty, Visnovsky, Chara, and Lidstrom. I was afraid I was not going to get two (or maybe even one) good defensive guys, so I pulled the trigger. When it got later in the draft, there were a raft of Cs and RWs available - defensemen were getting harder to find. Several guys I had below Fowler had been snapped up.
Odd draft - I did some mocks, and here people went crazy on defensemen and goalies, and left LWs on the board.
This is much different from any other sport due to positional uncertainty. If you sleep on goalies, and they go fast, you are stuck - same with the other critical positions. You have to be much more nimble and go more with the flow than in baseball, football, or basketball. I would never do an autopick hockey draft.
