Wow didn't think I would get this many responses. Its a 10 team League G,A,PPG,SHP,GWG,SOG,W,L,GAA,SV%,SO standard 2 per position 4 d and an extra forward.
I was trying to talk them into keeping 6.
I was thinking Crosby, Miller for sure
Then Carter for PPG and SOG
Marleau for SHP and G
then it was between Doughty, Sedin, Backstrom.
I've been sitting in first all year in a money league so I better win the playoffs,
Crosby, Miller, Sedin -- Have to keep
Possibles: Stewart, Backstrom, Carter, Marleau, Doughty.
I'd suggest taking Doughty, as he's only going to improve, and you'll have a solid backbone of a team with 2 Cs, 1 G, 1 D.
Fifth pick? That's hard. Backstrom had a bad season, but he's still a fantastic goalie. Stewart looks like he'll only get better... so his youth and potential is a bit of a gamble.
Carter? He's a beast, really... but Philly never get it together, really. I'd lean towards Carter, because he still puts up big points but that gives you THREE centers? Do faceoffs count for your league?
Marleau? You never know what to expect from him...
goalies are hard to come by...save crosby, sedin, miller, backstrom. and for the 5th, if u want a good defender, go doughty, but where points are concerned, carter is older but always gets points, burrows and samuelson have shown much potential to repeat their sucessful years this year again next year. i'd go...carter cuz ull get some FW's too
Let me start by saying it is a heck of alot easier to find a scoring center than a good goalie.
Crosby (given), Doughty, Miller & Backstrom are the guys I would definately keep.
IMO, your choice is between Campbell, Horton or Stewart.

--if your league counts PIMs i would definitely consider burrows over marleau
--if your league members have good goalie options for keepers you may want to hang on to backstrom
--carter isn't really worth it since u already have 2 top centers
If it's a 10 team hth or more, I would prob. keep Backstrom (goalie) before Doughty or Stewart. Also bear in mind that Marleau is a FA. That being said, my 5 would be: Miller, Crosby, Sedin, Marleau and Backstrom. Decent goalies like BAckstrom have more value than a d'man like Doughty in a 10 team league or more.
