Should I drop him?
Kinda an injury risk, but obviously a must have if hes healthy..
But theres players available that are pretty good.
Grabovski, Fisher, Fedorov, Demitra...
Any other suggestions are welcome as well.
I dropped Sakic for Langkow. I probably wouldn't have dropped him for any of the free agents listed.
A lot of people are dropping Nick Backstrom. You might want to see if he's available. I picked him up because I heard he would help my save percentage, but recently all he does is pass to Ovechkin. He also takes faceoffs. That must be an advantage to use that big goalie stick.
Drop Sakic: Hello no. Not unless injury rears its ugly head, and even then, those are rough FA replacement choices.
AvsGirl: I lolled.
Puckhog: Don't be so Mr. Serious. Fantasy Hockey won't get you laid.

I wouldn't drop him, worst case put him on IR (if he gets the status). This guy is one of the most consistent players in the NHL. So he's old, doesn't mean he's no good.
As for Stastny, well sorry girl! Yan Stastny (not too great a player who got traded from Boston to St. Louis) & Paul Stastny (Colorado), son of Peter Stastny (ex-Nordiques, the same franchise that went to Colorado) - one of the great players of the game!
I had him on one team and did drop him for H. Sedin. Sakic has been doing really well, but, ya, can get his injuries. If you go for anyone, I would go for Federov, he has been doing pretty well this season. Demitra is out for another 3-4 weeks, so I would stay away from his unless you grab him, IR him, then grab Federov and keep Demitra until he is healthy and shows his value.
I already did a few days ago, and I had him on all 4 of my teams!!!
I've been reading quite alot (I mean ALOT) on here about people talking about this guy named Stastny being such a good player and all, scores alot of points, PPP too, blah, blah, blah. I was quite shocked to discover that he was still available in all 4 of my leagues, so I picked him up right away!! How was he missed??? I think I really lucked out by dumping Sakic!!!
Maybe he's available in your league as well and you can grab him like I did! So, thats my best suggestion for you.
One strange thing though...I thought Stastny was playing for my team (Avalanche)...I guess they must've traded him to the St. Louis Blues. Nutz!
