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- H. Sedin*
LW- M. Richards*
RW- St. Louis*
F- E. Staal*
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.

I would pick Callahan over St. Louis as he was 6th in Hits last year, scored nearly 30 Goals, and rivals guys like Backes/Giroux in Shots on Goal. He is a strong multi-category fantasy player.
I'd also consider holding onto Niemi. You'd have two solid goalies going into the draft and could focus your energy on skaters alone (maybe pick up a 3rd goalie late in the draft).
Google the following: fantasy PK boost
This will give you a strong argument as to why you should keep Niemi.
