Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
My team right now is around .500 and in 10th place (17 points away from 6th place) Should I keep what I got and hope to make it to the playoffs, or make changes?
C-Horcoff, E. Staal, Lang
LW-B. Morrow, M. Naslund
RW-M. Havlat, J. Cheechoo, Hossa (ATL) Kovalev
D-Bouwmeester, P, Ranger, T. Enstrom, A. Edler
G-Lundqvist, Khabibulin, Toskala
12 Team H2H
Get rid of Bouwmeester. I'd also try to get rid of Toskala. Probably Cheechoo as well. Bouwmeester, you can just look to the FA's to pick up someone better (list who's available in FA's by the way). You need to make some changes. For one, you need to find a goalie on a winning team (Hopefully Chicago can pull it together for you again). If Havlat and Hossa stay healthy, they'll be good for you down the stretch. You have pretty solid Centres, and once Carolina kicks its Flu Virus going around, Staal should be putting up points for you.
Don't just hope to make the playoffs. Your team isn't set up to win once you get there. You weak links are your goalies and your defensemen. Clear up those areas, and hopefully your big guns in your forwards will start producing for you once they stay healthy.
I think Your Roster is Not Solid... You are playing to Win many categories as Possible BUT it's not good looking at all.
Need change desperately.. eventhough Lundqvist Step UP your Other two G's will ruin categories like Sv% or GAA. It's bad combination.
Usually I don't think too much about D's. Most weeks Forward carries most categories. You may use players for PP, PIM, +/-.. However your D's looks very shaky.
YOu have good Players overall BUT lacks #1 Guy owners are looking for. Like Zetty, Kovalchuck, Iginla etc.. Hossa is not the guy who can carry your team. He mentioned so many times in trade Rumors. Naslund (Rw/Lw) eligibility that YOu are short of Left Wings. I would trade Kovalev or Hossa for LW's or G's. Cheechoo??? on waivers in few leagues.
Lacks #1 guy again. Horcoff is currently very hot BUT it's Oilers and will cool down. Staal and Lang is Solid guy BUT need his Linemates Like havalat and Cole etc..
Rey, your team is looking fairly solid. I dont think you have to make too many changes to get to the top half of your league. I could use your help. I need to know if this trade is FAIR OR LOPSIDED. Team A gets Martin St. Louis and Team B gets Radim Vrbata and Nathan Horton. Is this deal FAIR OR LOPSIDED. Thanks!
