There is also faceoffs won/lost but I'm not proposing that change. However, I am open to it if people want it. It does make centers more important. For goalies there are saves, shots against, goals against, and games started that are categories we are not using. If anyone wants to include them, let me know.
Include 1 IR position (currently 0).
Increase from 2 lines (2C, 4 W, 4 D) to 3 lines (3 C, 6W, 6D) to create position scarcity and get more players in there. The addition of hits/blocks should open up new scoring opportunities for more defensive players.
I'm not sure about adding a category, let me think about that. Maybe something for forwards, but not for goalies. When you don't have enough starts in a week you lose 4 or 5 points as it is, anything more would be bad. Maybe something that adds to the productivity of grinders.
We always had an IR spot. I've used it anyway.
No to another line! 5 more spots, means even more drafting and managing.
That's overkill to me. Besides, do you really want to have Matt Cooke on your team because you have had to draft another 50-60 players.
