G,A,P, PPP, GWG, SOG..... Non keeper points league.
I am looking to trim the fat, if possible. Here are some FA's I am considering. Do I drop anyone for one or more of these?
FA's: Turris, Boedker, Berglund, Iginla (just dropped), Carle, Greene, Little, Roy, Gonchar, Horton, Henrique, Hedman, Eriksson (Dal), Ennis.
C: Ribiero, Elias
L: Nash, Pacioretty
R: Franzen, Semin
D: Shattenkirk, Hamilton, Seabrook, Subban
Bench: RNH, Krecji, Backes, Simmonds, Burrows, MAF
IR: Callahan, Landeskog
Iginla is the obvious one to p/u (drop Ladd), but keep your eye on Roy too playing on the top line. You have 2 marginal D in Seabrook and Hamilton as far as offense only categories, and you are definitely lacking a number 1 center. Although Callahan is healthy, his value is more in the Hits and Pims areas, as is Burrows. I may try and swing a deal with Sedin owners for Burrows (look for a solid d-man), and try to swing something with Krecji while his value is high. You seem to have drafted numerous power forwards, but their value can't truly be reflected unless you count plus minus, hits and/or PIMS. So you also have tradeable chips in Simmonds and Backes.

I want to add Turris. If I get Henrique I'd have 2 Devils. So, for Turris, is there anyone else I can drop other than Simmonds? Perhaps Pacioretty? Not sure I want to lose him. I already added Carle, Iginla and Eriksson.
I'd take Iginla over Alex Burrows. Iginla has started slow the last couple of seasons and picks things up as time wears on. Burrow's value, meanwhile, is limited as long as he isn't playing on the Sedin line (and also considering the fact that your league doesn't count PIM).
