    • Get rid of Antropov..Clowe..Ehrhoff..gaborik..try to package em up in a trade and try throwing crosby in there to get some firepower back in return.

    • Funny my team started 7th then went to last place for about 3 weeks then went from last to 4th place and now its been hovering around 6th/5th place for about a month now and i have made alot of adjustments.My GAA and save percentage doesnt help my team in advancing to 4th even though i have 41 wins which is 3rd best in my league i also have the 2nd most goal totals with 127 and the best powerplay with 137 also 2nd in shots with around 1203...I have zetterburg,clowe,krecji,hemsky,mikko koivo,bourqe,smyth,franzen,hudler,pronger,visnovsky,commodore,vlasic
      goalies,kiprusoff,bryzgalov,roloson
      i have 72 points and am in 5thplace
      I just dropped brad boyes my team was once a -38 now my team is a -16 and he was a -23 so dropping him may help my team in the next comming weeks who knows...most of all check and see what your team needs to the most RW/C/LW/D/G
      with hemsky being injured now it leaves me a little weak at RW but i'll wait it out till he comes back he's a big part of my team..Wish you the best...

    • theres no secret that crosby is slumping. it might be a time to shop him around and see what hes worth in your league. unfortunately you're stuck with gaborik who just had surgery on monday and is out out 10-14 weeks. he might be worth dropping if you don't have room on your ir. koivu is due back sometime this week, but still i think you need another center. toronto is nowhere near the team they were at the beginning of the season so antropov is just dead weight, deal or drop him. lidstrom is having a surprising season, and not in a good way. his name might be worth more then his actual value.

    • Firstly I can the injury bug hurt you a bit.

      Secondly, these are the players you shouldn't move:
      Vanek, Lidstrom, Markov, Seto, Nabokov.

      Big trade bait:
      Crosby, Thomas, Price, Phaneuf

      Players to add to trades to move:
      Antropov, Dumont, Clowe (try and cash in on inflated stats), Erhoff.

      Then I'd hunt for some FA. Samuelsson, Hudler, Knuble, Rene Bourque, David Booth, Andrei Kostitsyn, or Lang etc.

      Try and shoot for Nicklas Backstrom (C), Shane Doan, Iginla, Kovalchuk (look for impatient owner), Semin, Marleau, etc.

    • trade crosby and some company for malkin ovie or inginla.
