Benns in FA. Pick him up and drop Ryan or Eriksson? Neither plays much on my team.
8 team league. My team goes like this.
Forwards...Stamkos, St. Louis, Kovalchuk, Datsyuk, Backes, Tarasenko, J. Neal, Kopitar, Duchene, M. Michalek, Elias, Ryan, Eriksson.
Defense... Pietrangelo, J. Johnson, Carle, Doughty, Edler
Goal.. Price, Niemmi, Fluery, Nabokov
Also we get max 28 games a week from forwards, 20 from d and 10 from goalies.
Well, it wouldn't be me dropping him for Eriksson or Ryan.
Think about it. Benn was a hold-out, so he hasn't been in camp. At his best, he'll produce similar numbers to Eriksson. And Eriksson is more valuable because he's LW/RW as opposed to C/LW.
I'd keep Ryan on name value alone. The guy that I might actually consider dropping for him within a few games would be Duchene, but I certainly wouldn't do it immediately.

Has Bobby Ryan not sucked enough last year and this year to warrant not keeping him? Also, depending on stat categories I would be more inclined to keep Benn over Ericksson. If I had the choice I would be dropping Ryan for him. Duchene seems more on the up and up than Ryan IMO.
