Looks like a nice start to creating a all around good team.  2 good defenseman, 3 good forwards, and a SPHL champion goaltender.  I like the picks.  Surprised no one from Mississippi was taken.

I was hoping the first move the new FAY coach was going to make was the signing of Asmundson-- Oh well- good for the new guys.

I'm hoping the same for Roanoke.  They have quite a few players that i'd be happy with.  Dillan Fox, Brant Sherwood, Dan Tedesco, and Ryan Marcuz will help anyone out on offense.  Then some pretty good defensemen with Donald Olivieri, Vytal Cote, and Jake Schultz is a good defenseman who isn't scared to drop the gloves.  But they all three had lengthy call ups and could find permanent jobs in the ECHL.  Then they have two goalies who have shown they can hang in the SPHL with Tyler Green and Jared Rutledge.  Thats just the ones that i've mentioned but still have some other pretty good players.  It will be fun seeing where they all end up.
