Quick thoughts: Tavares and Duchene are pretty good. MacKinnon has a lot of potential in a keeper league but let's see if he makes the big club first.

Left wings look solid. You have three guys who can produce and Franzen finished strong last season.

Right wings look good with Gagner and Seguin Nino Niederreiter is another name to watch and see what happens in camp.

Defense is okay but not great. No real star player there and you'll be happy with mediocre production out of that group.

Turris on the bench is an interesting player. Clarkson is too but should be moved up into a spot in the place of Nino Niederreiter.

Goaltenders have some issues. Vokoun was solid when he played but he didn't play much during the regular season. I'm not sure what kind of timeshare he will have with Marc-Andre Fleury so I'm a little gunshy about him. Scrivens will be the backup to Jonathan Quick in LA so he isn't likely to see much ice time. Neuvirth is likely to the back up to Braden Holtby in Washington.

Three backup goaltenders won't get the job done.

Look to make a move to get a goaltender (if you can). You'll probably need that first and the key to building a good dynasty team is from the net out. Consider dangling a rookie from the draft out there and see what someone will give.

It's going to be rough in the early going for your team but with time, and luck, you can build it into a winner.

I'd rate 5 out of 10. Your probably going to do poorly unless you get an upgrade in the tendy slot. I might look at shipping out Franzen or Marchand plus one of your backups for a good starter. In hockey you'll get action from back ups but the difference between a starter and a back up is huge. It's not really a position that can be punted.
Good luck!
