Season 18 Post Draft Power Rankings

#1. 239 Globetrotters

Memba' when Jimmy Rollins said we're the team to beat in 2008 and then the Phillies won the World Series?

PHJ314 as needed

You all let me have adrenaline who is like a 20-30 bod center for a dollar. And Schwatz let me have Borat even though he tried to spoil my secrets by getting Pogs to bid him up to 7 whole dollars late in the draft, I would have easily gone to 27. I don't care that I now have to play RD some series. There are no holes anywhere on this team. Our backup goalie is better than more than half the goalies in starting spots. Good luck.

#2. Now We Go

SBDR brought in 1000 people in the league this season and most of them put G only as their signup. Late changes happened and Glex and Gumba ended up with LD and RD on their signups as well and alarm bells started ringing. Well, the captains allowed SBDR to get his guys, and his Game 7 lineup is going to be incredible. We shall see how his other lineups pan out but Part-Time guys have big impacts in the playoffs and recent history suggests it's a formula for success. I have them as #2 but need to see how his team looks when Glex and Gumba AREN'T in unless he plans on separating the 2 which is possible as well. Dropshot was a late steal for him. I don't know Falzax at all but steve must know something. And GI Joe Destro is an anchor and a hell of an insurance policy after the top 2 d. ChiTown is a well-known skater, not a well-known G but I'm sure he'll do fine in net especially behind this team. EWTU Eric has not found a ton of success in this league but is now in a prime spot to succeed and should be more than up to the task. Efstratios way back in early seasons used to be a top 1 or 2 round player in this league, he'll have to prove he's better than Dropshot or Falzax to get some starting time on this roster though.

I see very few holes overall though, is Falzax legit? If not can Efstrati0s step in and reclaim former glory? Can EWTU Eric recover from being on some of the absolute WORST teams in 239 history?

#3. Rotating Pizza Oven

Pogs returns to captaincy after a fairly long hiatus. He's a defenseman now! We all know how this story goes though, Pogs blows his load and drops 50 to get his boy Surpriseme and then another 45 to get his man Fl0de. Or wait...

He did NONE of that? Whaaaaaaaaaat?!?!?!

Pogs went out and got Schwatz instead of surpriseme and did NOT go after his boy Fl0de either. Schwatz is coming off a tremendous campaign where he carried the Classic Hits finishing as the runner up for the Art Ross and Rocket last season and Pogs liked what he saw. He then rounded out his forward corps with Bluelineking who signed up as forward only this season, and WelcomeToTheWeb who returned from about 8 seasons off from the last time he played where he won back-to-back Hart trophies in this league. On defense, Pogs is going with TheTrueBenSwolo at LD where he primarily played last season very well. And in net linkrunner is making his return to the league. Vizh rounds out the squad, he's a rookie but has been around in moose for quite a while and will definitely see playing time on this team. Why? Because WelcomeToTheWebs signup says he can't play Tuesdays and Thursdays and seeing as almost 50 percent of the league's captains refused Mondays, Pogs will be forced to roll without Web for I'd say probably close to 50 percent of his games this season.

Holes? TrueBenSwolo has seen limited action on LD but looked very competent in that role, he'll need to continue to be steady for this team. Web missing close to 50 percent of the season as a Full-Time player complicates things, and there will be a drop off from him to Vizh but I still like the offense even without Web. Finally, linkrunner has had some fantastic seasons in net previously. He's also had some terrible ones. Which link shows up?

Lineups

Bluelineking - WelcomeToTheWeb - Schwatz83
TheTrueBenSwolo - Pogs
linkrunner

Bluelineking - Schwatz83 - Vizh
TheTrueBenSwolo - Pogs
linkrunner

#4. Buffalo Hockey Team

I thought YoungBuffalo had a pretty good draft this season. Cob and HallOfFame is a really great start for a team that has a lockdown center already, you get a high flying scoring winger and a stud D. Gyneman is a really great #2 d man in this league and probably is starting to border on a #1 himself lately. Then Buff did something interesting and entered into the BarrettFITTYcal sweepstakes and won. Lastly, he picked up a rookie, ElitistFrank, and SirPuffinton in net. Here's the thing I have some questions but it doesn't matter to me what the answers are because Buff has options that are good no matter what.

The Questions. Is ElitistFrank the real deal? Idk who this guy is. I couldn't find stats online for him in my scouting, I never got to see him play. Is he the starting LW on this squad? Which would then mean Barrett is the starting RD and Gyne is only playing game 1s, which is a hell of backup. If Frank is not the starting LW, then you still have HoF and Gyne as your D pairing which is fantastic still, but then Buff is the starting LW, as neither Barrett nor Cob have LW available on their signups. I like the team a lot regardless. The only other concern I have is Puffintons MIA, which says no Thursdays and iffy Wednesdays. There will be a lot of Wednesday games and if he can't make any of those, we are looking at Buff in net for a series and a waiver for game 1s as there are NO other players on this team with G willing.

Barrett is a top-flight option that goes for cheap because he can't play game 1s. But Buff has put together a really good squad around himself.

Lineups

HallOfFame - BarrettFITTYcal
SirPuffinton420

ElitistFrankfu6 - YoungBuffalo88 - cob13

potentially:

#5. Dora's Backpack

I really liked Swizz's team this season. I could see this team moving up in these very quickly if things work out the way I think they could. I never got to see Barzy play in my scouting this season, but I know he is a very talented skater and has the potential to be a Calder candidate or even a top skater outright and Swizz was able to get him for 11 BoDs. I thought he got Fl0de relatively cheap at 32 BoD's and followed that up with another rookie Zer0 Pain at a rather hefty 28 BoDs, the highest-paid rookie. Beernuts I think will be one of the better goalies in the league this season based on what I saw, and he rounded out the team with BlackandGold in his sophomore campaign and Slothamania, the 4th rookie drafted on this team.

Questions? On a team with 7 players, 4 of these guys are rookies. How will they perform? Will they meet, exceed to fail to meet expectations? I think for the most part the answer will be they will exceed expectations. I really like this team down to it's backup. Sloth showed a lot in the scouting games I saw of him and even if one of the other rookie forwards falters I think he's more than capable of getting in there and competing for a spot outright. I think Beernuts looked really good in the games I saw. We all know what Fl0de can do on LW and C but what will he do on LD? I think he'll be more than fine but time will tell. Black and Gold is also moving back to D for the first time this season as well and will need to prove himself there. Overall I think this team will surprise some people.

Lineup

Barzy - Swizz - Zer0Pain
Fl0de - BlackandGold
Beernuts83

Slothamania as needed
