CLS Re-draft - First Round Overview

As posted on Raw Charge....

The first round of the Cycle like the Sedins Re-Draft has been completed. 30 bloggers have picked players for all 30 NHL teams. The second round is speeding right along, so I expect it to be completed by Saturday at the latest.

As a refresher, here are the known terms of the Re-Draft:

  • 30 bloggers from various blogs around the internet - including a few others here on SB Nation - are team GMs.
  • Picks are in snake order: 1-30 for odd numbered rounds, and 30-1 for even numbered rounds. Last I'd heard that was the case, anyways. There was talk of doing a z-order, but I think that got shot down.
  • There is a $57 million salary cap. No cap floor has been mentioned.
  • Only the actual cap hit matters, not the full player salary.
  • Trades are allowed.
  • Presumably, this will be going 23 rounds. Or, at least, until we get bored or someone tells us to stop.
  • This is an offseason exercise only. This is not a fantasy league draft.
  • The winner will be determined by an NHL 10 simulation.
