Who to Start Message Board
I'm in a keeper league and am trying to rank the Defensemen who are left. Out of this list who would you rank as "Gotta Chase", "good to have", and "better than nothing"
I have them in this order, would you agree or change it?
Good to have
better than nothing
The rest of the obvious guys to chase are already keepers on other teams but just so that you get the whole picture I'll list the LW's that aren't available. These are all guys projected to be kept by their owners:
Please throw some input in on how I've ranked or if you think I might be missing anyone on the list. Thanks guys
Without question one guy you need to get is John Carlson of Washington. Im not a Caps fan but live in London and have followed him since his days playing for the Knights. This guy is the real deal. He is such a slick skater and an offensive force. Do your homework on him if you want but we saw a glimpse of his potential in the playoffs with Washington and he is only going to get better. Definitely a must-have for a keeper league. TRUST ME.
Anyone else? Just a reminder, I benchmark the category "gotta chase" for guys you would take in the first round keeping in mind the players that aren't available. This is a keeper league so there are plenty of top players unavailable at draft
Tomas Kaberle, Gonchar, Pronger, Phanuef, Victor Hedberg, Eric Johnson, Tyler Myers.
Nice to have
Niclas Lidstrom, Zedo Chara, Toby Enstrom, Keith Yandle, Brian Rafaski
Better than nothing
S. Robidas, Dennis Wideman, L. Visnovsky, Kurtis Foster.

We only get to keep 5 players off of our 17 man roster. The gut who has myers also has d. Keith. It would be suicide to keep two dman. I'm projecting he would keep Keith over myers.
I have to let kaberle go myself. I have doughty so it doesn't hurt that much.
In case you're interested my keepers are
it was tough but those are the ones I settled on in our 12 team league
