Thanks for input. I will not try go for 1st rounders .
I have now started with this. I simmed forward and took over Flyers. They where deadlast in standings with only 27 wins. AI had made 2 trades vets for extra picks and Fasching from waivers.
The team consisted of a simmonds,giroux,mason,schenn,voracek and the super talent Provorov.
Before draft first year i moved away all players over age 29.
The most two most notable trades was:
for Niclas Ehlers from jets
An super good wing for a much younger winger, lost some attribute points but gained lots of milage on the top wings
for Strome and De angelo from Arizona.
This fixed my hole on the right defense with a young offensive defender and strome is a potential top 2 lines center.
After a few more trades my team looks like this end of season 2:
Schenn got long term INJ 8 months so Strome replace him, Strome was intended to grow in AHL but that plan got destroyed right away.
The prospects in the team
Nolan Patrick C 18 (1st pick 2017)
Logan Brown C 19 (Blocked by sens, mayby late bloomer)
Morand C 18 (2nd pick 17, ranked 2nd prospect in team report)
Sanheim 21 LD (In Ahl playing very good)
Luke Green 19 RD (41p in 21 games in st john,8,37AVG, 16 passing)
Carter Hart 19 G (ranked high in team report, play good in juniors)
Keeping : Weak , bad starter and backup. Very hard to change with trades as the young keepers all are UNT and draft keepers very bad so far.
Defence : Good have a very solid future top 6, need a better young defensive defenseman for PK
Centers : Average Grigorenko-Countrier-Lougthon is average at best, low creativity and skating, with 3 upcoming prospects in Nolan,Brown and Morand this can be better in future
Wings : Very good Solid top 2 line wings with schenn,ehlers,konecny and voracek, and nice mix of vets and youth, but no re placers and no prospects in organization. This needs to be addressed with trades in future. Tkashev 22 year russian LW seems to be good 3 LW when he joins next summer.
