I personally like many of the sabermetric stats, and I agree that they are better measures of real player value. But if I drafted a guy who will gets 'wins' because he is on a winning team that scores a lot of runs, just for getting points in the 'Wins' category, I would feel ripped off if 'wins' were replaced by a better stat.
I think the stats should be discussed and agreed on when a dynasty league is formed, not a year after the players were drafted.
I don't think changing a few stats would necessitate an extreme roster overhaul. It's likely a pitcher, for example, with a lot of wins is good at either striking out batters or not walking them or both. It's likely that a guy who hits for average has a good OBP. It's likely that a guy who hits HR has a high SLG. It's likely that a guy with a lot of RBI is a good OBP and SLG man.
I can't even remember who I have on my roster but I'm not really concerned about it changing things too much. And if so, that's part of the fun.
