    Martin St. Louis

    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.

      • 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.
