To help the free agency lull, we got/stole a great idea from our friends at Second City Hockey to build our all time starting six, Duck Dynasty on a budget.

The rules are simple; you have $18 to build a starting five plus a goalie. You will need a left winger, center, right winger, two defensemen and a goalie. Players are ranked by approximate value. Would Cam be higher than Lubo? Yes, but he wouldn’t be a $1 value and we valued Hampus at $3 more than Fowler so no C4 on this one.

Here is a list of former and current players including soon-to-be Hall of Famers Paul Kariya and Teemu Selanne.

Be sure to post your dynasty lineup in the comments and argue like civilized adults. Think we forgot an all-time Duck great (NO BOB CORKUM?!?! NO JOE SACCO?!?!) Think the values are garbage? Let us know (gently.) Be sure to rec your favorites and have at it.
