Ok, I am stalled out in 3rd place and probably lucky to be there, if anyone can help me get into first place I will give them 50 bucks cash (american or canadian).
Here's my lineup:
C-S.Koivu, Savard, Weight, Richards, Grabovski
LW-Kovalchuk, Elias, O'Sullivan, Lucic, Samsonov
RW-Alfredsson, Sykora, Satan, Holmstrom
D-Markov, Girardi, Quincey, Visnovsky
G-Legace, C.Mason, Khabibulin, Clemmenson
I have been going after goalies all season with stupid one sided trade offers, but the only ones I can land are Rinne and S.Mason. I've been riding Savard all year, and he's having a horrible december. Girardi is stuck with no points in 3. Khabibulin should be back in action saturday, so I can get rid of one of the blues goalies, or both very soon.
Stats in the league are
G, A, PIM, +/-, PPP, SOG, GW, FW (forwards)
W, L, GAA, SV%, SHO (goalies)
here are the FA's
Backes, Berglund, Miettinen, Marc-Andre Bergeron, Stamkos, Moller, Perron, Mitchell, Voracek, Legwand, Enstrom
Guys on the FA I dont like:
Jason Blake, S.Gagner, Erik Cole, Turris, Malone, Svatos, Weiss, Carle
50 bucks if I use your advice and win the league... not the playoffs, just the league, its soo much easier that way!
drop grabovski for berglund...drop satan coz u already have an other RW with PIT u dont need 2 and pick up backes he will give u PIM something that u probably did not win too often plus he ll give u points and a good rating for SOG ...then drop girardi for m-a bergeron he will get u points and most of them on PP and for goalie u said that u can land S.Masson ..do it fast before the other guy changes his mind

dude you guys fail to read the post where i tell you my new line up... too bad, because i dont have grabovski, i picked up and dropped berglund for JP Dumont, and if you're not going to read it then dont post because youre not helping, but thanks anyway for the effort.
im wondering why you still have grabovski and saku koivu... pickup berglund.. thats your best bet... and samsonov was hot for a few games.. that won't last pickup jason blake.. and get rid of chris mason haha i dont care who you pick up for him thats a waste having him
Grab mason if u can hes hot and has been the entire year... most shut outs in the league prob ur best choice for goalie right now besides the obvious ones. As for players i would drop samsonov and pick up Legwand. Hes on fire of late and playing on the top line as well as getting PP time with the captian out. Hes reunited with Erat who is also hot of late and would be your best pick up. As for lucic hes not on the top line anymore so he can be a possible shipment for you to make trade offers as well as kovalchuck whose not having the best of years. Try it out!!!
So here's my line up and I am now in 2nd and gaining no 1st who I am facing this week
C:Savard, B.Richards, Pavelski, Weiss, Kennedy
LW: Lucic, Elias, Clowe, Frolov
RW: Setoguchi, Kane, Erat, Sykora, Dumont
D: Blake, Weber, Visnovsky, Wisniewski
G: B.Johnson, Bulin, Turco, S.Mason
did i improve or get worse?
I was thinking about offering Johnson and erat to the team with Jose Theodore and see what I can get there too.
25$ still out there if you help me win 1st
First 25 lost because i had to drop berglund.
dropped samsonov and grabovski, picked up miettnen and berglund. if I make it to first someone here will win half of the 50 for suggesting berglund. Half can still be won by anyone for helping get to frist.
Lol I doubt he gives anyone $50 - but it's getting him lots of input!
As for your team... Weiss on C isn't a bad play - he logs the most PP time for a fwd on FLA and he wins a lot of faceoffs too, since he PK's as well. I'd drop Grabo to get him.
I might try and see what Kovalchuck could fetch you in a trade too... I have been shopping him around myself, now that he is starting to heat up. In your case, a decent goalie would help, along with a Dman as well..
Berglund is a good add, but in the C position he doesn't win faceoffs, so..
Monitor Samsonov and if he cools off, drop him asap... Perron would be a decent pickup, and I am guessing he will get LW,RW soon enough.
All that said, you could also shop Koivu or Richards (Brad on DAL?) around too. Even Savard... He's gone cold lately.
Attempting to trade Girardi while his stats still look decent could be good too.
All in all - you gotta sell your players while they're hot (aka Savard) for players that will do well all season. Even tho Savard will get 80 points for sure... The way he was going you coulda got a top 10 player, maybe top 15...
I have steve mason as one of my goalies i had Brodeur but that was shot and i picked up Mason until i decieded what i was gonna do and ive kept him hes not bad and since leclaire isnt playing well for columbus hes getting more icetime! hes had a few shutouts look up his stats!

a goalie you might be able to pick up who will put up stats close to that group is kiprosouf. He starts a ridiculous amount of games and his market value dropped with all the talk about his slow start but he has been playing pretty well lately and i think the flames are just finding their groove
he got picked up a couple of weeks ago, and He's available, but the guy wants defensemen, and I don't want to give any up.... :) I traded Chara when he was slumping early in the season for elias and s.koivu.
