    Should I pick up Grabovski or Eller?

    So I've been wanting to pick up either Grabovski or Eller (probably Grabovski over Eller) since they are both available in my league still but my problem is I already have 3 players with only center eligibility(Getzlaf,Stepan and M.Koivu) and the player I was wanting to drop is Hodgson who has c and rw eligibility. Would having 4 centers be that terrible or should I look for a winger(Simmonds,Hartnell,Fleischmann,Vrbata,Okposo and Aldelkader are all available in my league).

    Also side question, should I look into dropping Alex Goligoski for someone like Paul Martin,Mark Giordano or Jacob Trobua.

    My Current Roster
    Forwards: Getzlaf,Stepan,Nash,Couture,Giroux,Backes,Koivu,Hodgson
    Defense: Yandle,Ekman-Larsson, Shattenkrirk, Faulk, Goligoski

    I'm new to fantasy hockey so any advice is greatly appreciated.

    • I think either would be good to pick up. I would personally get Grobovski because he is on Washington's top power play unit and has more pp points. Both are real hot right now and will likely slow their scoring pace a little bit.
      I always try to have more centers because my league counts faceoff wins. You already have several multi-position centers with Couture, Giroux, and Backes so you should be set for faceoffs.
      If you are going to go for one of the available wingers in your league I would go with Hartnell or Vrbata. Both usually put up decent numbers and goals and are pretty good in other categories with PIMS for Hartnell and Shots for Vrbata.
      I wouldn't get rid of Goligoski for the available D. I usually only keep 4 d-men on my team and have another extra forward.
