    Martin Havlat

    Someone just dropped Martin Havlat in my 9-person standard point, non-keeper league. (G,A, +/-, PPP, SHP, GWG, SOG)

    He's not producing at this point but is he worth investing in for the long run?

    Roster:
    Jeff Skinner
    Eric Staal
    Evander Kane
    Alexander Ovechkin
    Alexander Semin
    Jarome Iginla
    Henrik Zetterberg
    Dany Heatley
    Ryan Callahan
    Zach Parise
    Jonathon Toews

    • Havlat is worth a roster spot but I wouldn't drop any of the forwards currently on your team in order to ger him. Unless you have a d-man or a goalie you don't mind dropping, I wouldn't bother.

      • I have 3 d-men and am allowed to start a maximum of 3 D per night.

        Shea Weber
        Dan Hamhuis
        Dimitri Kulikov

        Goalies are Mike Smith and Jimmy Howard so I'll keep my G situation as is.

        Clearly forwards are rewarded quite heavily since the structure is mostly based on point production. Is dropping down to 2 D an option? Keep in mind, that I can start C, LW, RW, D,D,D, Util., Util. per night.

        Martin Havlat or Bryan Little are the only FA opportunities worth considering at this point.

    • You play in a 9 person league. Players like Havlat are going to be available.

      Definitely don't drop Kane, he's been a sleeper for a long time and it looks like he's finally going to take that next step.

      The only player I would even consider dropping is Semin, but both players are struggling, why waste an add/drop? At least Semin is still getting top 6 mins.

    • there isn't really anyone on your roster who I would drop for havlat. maybe evander? but i would just stand pat for now, until you see some consistency in havlat's play at least

      can you help with mine please?

    • ** Bryan Little is also available. Any suggestions?
