    Martin St. Louis

    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.

    • I really like Callahan, hence why I drafted him this season, but St. Louis is currently ranked about 50 spots ahead of him. Just based on that, I have a better chance of redrafting Callahan next year than I do St. Louis if the rankings stay the same or similar.

      As for Niemi, I do like him as well. Traded Burrows and Anderson for him last season. Wasn't the greatest for me, but did well enough to help me win. We can only keep 1 goalie and since I have Quick, Niemi can't be kept. I was able to draft Niemi with the last pick of the 4th round this season and would be happy if I was able to get him again next year. I rated him above many of the goalies who yahoo has ranked higher such as Dubnyk, Anderson, Backstrom, Pavelec etc

      Again everything I'm talking about/wondering about depends on what happens with the lockout. I'm really #$%$ about the lockout as a hockey fan and considering I think I have a really well rounded team and good chance to repeat as champ in my league lol
