So before I wrote this post I went back and looked at the Top 30 and realized 13 of the 30 are Centers.

The Goalies! As I intimated in the Strategery post there are alot of good goaltenders out there. Different leagues start drafting Goalies at different times, so the more you know about your league the better.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Drafting to me is like the 1st time you have sex with someone you’re interested in having a relationship with. As it’s happening, you feel great and you’re certain you’re pushing all the right buttons and making all the right moves.Please, blog, may I have some more?
