Forward gets 2 G, 2 A in a game. 1 G and 2 A are on the PP. 1 G is a GWG. And he has 8 shots on goal. That is an above average game for any star player, but still could easily be more:
2 G = 6 points
2 A = 4 points
1 PP G = .5 points
3 PP Points = 3 points
1 GWG = 1 Point
8 Shots = 1.6 Points
Total = 16.1 Points
Goalies. Assume shutout with 40 saves, which is an amazing game for any goalie:
Win = 3 points
Saves 40 = 8 points
Shutout = 3 points
Total = 14 points
Basically I see the forwards having great games much more often than the goaltenders. 4 point games with a ton of PP points are pretty common for the superstars of the league, where goalies have a handful of the 40 save shutout games. Majority of shutouts are with 20 shots on goal and the goalies don't have to work much.
I would trade from some superstars if you could. Even trade some of your Dmen for some bigger names. There is no shot block or hits category so Dmen aren't as valuable.

Can we post our teams on here for analysis as well, or would that be major thread-jacking?
