    Martin St. Louis

    I'm in a keeper league where I keep 8 players. We are entering our second season. I kept St. Louis from last year. Just thinking is it a good time to try and trade him because of his age or should I still wait and see how he does whenever hockey resumes?

    • Need more information here. What other players are you keeping? Who would you keep if not St. Louis? What type of scoring system are you in?

      • I think you commented on one of my other topics a week or 2 back. I'll copy and paste the relevant info here.

        It's a 2nd year keeper league, we had 16 teams in the first year, only 12 teams this year. The extra players from the 4 teams who didn't rejoin were thrown back into the draft. It's H2H with cats of G A +/- PIM PPP SHP Shots Hits, W GAA SV% SO. Players with a * denote keeper from last year (8 keepers, 1 goalie allowed)

        C- Stamkos*
        C- H. Sedin*
        LW- M. Richards*
        LW- Nash
        RW- St. Louis*
        RW- Pominville*
        F- E. Staal*
        D- Shattenkirk*
        D- McDonagh
        D- Girardi
        D- Seidenberg
        UTIL- Backes
        BN- Pacioretty
        BN- Callahan
        BN- Cole
        BN- Lupul
        G- Quick*
        G- Niemi
        BN- Varlamov

        If the season is cancelled, I think my keepers would now be: Stamkos, Quick, Nash, H. Sedin, E. Staal, Backes for sure. That leaves 2 spots and I can choose from St. Louis, M. Richards, Pominville, Shattenkirk and the others on my roster. I proposed increasing our keeper number to 10 if the season is cancelled, so we'll see what happens. I'd probably use Richards and St. Louis as my last 2 keepers if I had to choose today. I really like Shattenkirk and he's young, but since yahoo has ranked him so low, I think I would just be able to redraft him without much trouble.

        St. Louis' age is what scares me, but the fact he's with Stamkos who I also have is what makes me want to keep him. He's 37 now, could have another 5 years or maybe only 1. That's why I'm looking for some advice.
