Safe to say we got a lot of work to do if we want to be competitive. However, after being competitive for a long time and not winning, a one year rebuild developing good contracts within the organization and building up a prospect/pick pool that can offer value may be best in the long run

Hurricanes weakness is goaltending but is also the easiest to address. In defence the Canes are in a transition, one season from Drysdale and Hughes taking over the top pair pushing the rest of the D-core into their proper placement.. The forward core, the bottom 6 need to change. This bottom 6 will make me a playoff team and win games.... but I would prefer a more proper 4th line and will be my main focus in correcting

Goaltending an obvious concern until Levi comes of age, LW also weak and needs some work

I like my top 6 depth. Bottom 6 and Defence need a bit of work. Good mix of two-way and Offense first guys up front as well.

I can bring in 16 M in cheese so I should be able to supplement the roster in free agency or via trade.

We still might move Scheifele or Oshie to fill out the rest of the roster but this is how she shapes up after round 2.

Bortuzzo 67 - Mccabe 72

Kuemper 83
Vanacek 80
Vladar 78

Lineup is now compete after adding Kuemper, O'Reilly and McCabe via UFA.
Still a tiny bit of cap left for a depth D or fwd.
Will plan to add a 3rd pairing D sometime later this summer or during the season. May need to swap a C for a winger depending on the positions I have when the roster file is released.

Too deep up front for regular season and Matthew’s is definitely too soft for playoffs. The sim will hate it.

My team has 1 good guy on offense (buchnevich) and 2 good guys on defense (miro and jones), rounded out with a bunch of plugs. It's going to be interesting what the SIM makes of this season.

Need a couple depth pieces but I feel like there is pretty good depth here. Lots of Defensively aware forwards as well which I think helps in the sim.

As a team that can't seem to get past the 1st round, I clearly know nothing but I have become a believer in what others have mentioned here often: The sim punishes teams that are too strong.

So I wasted a few minutes this morning:
Based on a 28 team league, the top 28 rated forwards would be considered a "star", the top 84 would be top line, the top 168 2nd line, etc.
For D, the top 28 are "star", top 56 are 1st pairing, top 112 are 2nd pairing, etc.

Some fell right in the middle of a rating, so I just used the .5 to mean some would be above that and some below. anyway, here's how ratings break down, roughly:

Star forward 78.5ov and above
Top line forward 75.5 -78ov
2nd line F 72 - 75
3rd line 69 - 71
4th line 67 - 68

Top D 76.5
top pairing 74 - 76
2nd pairing 71 - 73
3rd pairing 68.5 - 70

#1G 79+
Backup 75-78


I omitted the 4th line, but here's how some teams (based on posts in the roster thread) pan out with the above.


Sharks
2 star forwards
3 top line F
1 2nd line
1 3rd line
2 star D
1 top pair D
12nd pair D
2 3rd pair
top goalie and a high rated backup

Carolina
1 star
5 top line F
3 2nd line F
3 upper 3rd line
No star D
1 top pair D
3 2nd pair D
lower rated starter goalie

Florida
2 star Forwards
3 top line F
2 2nd line F
2 3rd line
No star D
1 top pair D
3 2nd pair D
2 3rd pair D
Backup as a starter

Flyers
No star forwards
4 top line players
4 2nd line forwards
2 3rd line F
1 star D
1 top pairing D
3 2nd pairing D
1 3rd pair D
2nd highest rated starter
bottom half ranked backup

Calgary
2 star forwards
3 top line
5 2nd line
2 3rd line
2 star D
1 top pair D
2 2nd pair D
2 x starting goaltenders
1 high end backup

CBJ
1 star forward
5 top line forwards
2 2nd line
13rd line
3 top pairing D
2 2nd pairing D
True starter


I've been in the position of having multiple stars on my team and it's never led me to the promised land. This year, I go on with no start forwards and wonder how it will effect me.

Flames and Sharks have amazing rosters but I wonder if having 2 or 3 x star forwards and 2 x star Dmen will cause the SIM to punish them. Same goes for teams like Florida who have 2 x star players

This is just for sh1ts and giggles but I'm personally following a breakdown like this to follow teams and see how they make out.

Last year I had Mackinnon and Matthews and the sim took the squad all the way to the finals. I think the sim was made by Darryl Sutter. In general two way C outperform their ratings and young guys don't perform as well as they should. Sim seems to love Vets so need to have several of those on the roster.
