Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
I'm trying to work a trade for Goligoski for Williams but I'm not sure if he's going to go for it. I could drop Williams for Girardi. I looked at his stats last year and his point value in my league was close to that of Goligoski. Is it worth taking him?

At this point I don't see Goligoski returning to where he was last year. If you think you need him, trade Williams, because that's a fair trade. But with Souray just being a beast I don't see it likely Goligoski will put up 50 points again; at least this year.
As for Potter and Garrison...no one can guarantee the production they will continue to get. But in Edmonton they are scoring a lot and he is a getting a lot of powerplay time. Potter has 7 points, and 6 are on the powerplay.
Garrison's production is really more surprising because he has 6 points, but 5 are goals. He's seeing regular time on the powerplay, but has never been known as an offensive defenseman.
I'd be more willing to take a chance on one of these two than trade for Goligoski.

Girardi is a versatile defenseman who stays at home more often than not. His offensive upside this year is due to Marc Staal being injured. Since there is no timetable on Staal's return, Girardi is poised for a career year with Ryan McDonagh. Girardi is more of a passer than shooter, so you will not be getting a lot of goals or shots but you will get a lot of blocks and hits with Girardi.
Last year he hit 30+ points, but his PP time fluctuates. The Rangers usually go with Richards, Del Zotto, McDonagh and Girardi (for the time being) on the points during the PP. I would pick up Girardi if you are lacking in the Hits, Blocks, and TOI. I would not pick up Girardi if you are looking for Goals, Shots, PIM. His PPP, SHP, +/- are neither a pro or a con.
By my leagues stats last year Goligoski averaged 2.61 fantasy points per game while
Girardi averaged 2.53
The difference this year is that girardi seems to be generating some offence and goligoski doesn't
