For the last 3 years for some reason I've been drafting behind the same 2 guys. 1 guy would steal my pick from the front and the other from the back, and it was no different this year. So, I yolo'd and picked up 1 D...
Who can I drop for:
Andrej Sekera
Hampus Lindholm
Aaron Ekblad
Marc-Edouard Vlasic
Nick Leddy
Lubomir Visnovsky
Dan Hamhuis
Kimmo Timonen

2. (17) Erik Karlsson (Ott - D)
3. (32) Chris Kunitz (Pit - W)
4. (41) Jimmy Howard (Det - G)
5. (56) Martin St. Louis (NYR - W)
6. (65) Joe Thornton (SJ - C)
7. (80) Jeff Carter (LA - C,W)

Hmn, can't say I'd endorse this draft strategy because it leaves you with a seriously weak defense and while defensemen aren't exactly the keys to winning, having a horrible defense can be one of the keys to losing. Without knowing what the league size, scoring and waiver wire settings here here's what I suggest you do to at least shore up your D:

Drop Shane Doan, Johan Franzen and Adam Henrique and add Andrej Sekera, Hampus Lindholm and Nick Leddy.

Just an FYI, Kimmo Timmonen is out indefinitely and looks to be leaning towards retirement after being diagnosed with a rare blood clotting disorder, so strike him off any lists you have.

Eh, Visnovsky used to be a big producer but he's old and injury prone now. The Isles have a decent offense but I don't see Vis putting up much more than 30 points this year. That's about what you'll get from Leddy or Lindholm, but both of them have much higher upsides than Visnovsky.
