    LW - Alex Ovechkin
    LW - Bobby Ryan (claimed off waivers)
    RW - Phil Kessel
    RW - Ilya Kovalchuk (claimed off waivers)
    D - Alex Goligoski
    D - Mark Giordano
    D - Marc Andre-Bergeron
    D - Kevin Shattenkirk
    G - Ryan Miller
    G - Marc-Andre Fleury
    BN - Jeff Skinner
    BN - Joffrey Lupul
    BN - Dany Heatley
    BN - Kari Lehtonen (Claimed off waivers)
    IR - Sidney Crosby (Claimed off waivers)

    All advice is appreciated, thank you!

    • I would wait because alot of the players you have are only starting to heat up after dismal starts. IT can only get better.

      You have enough dual categories forwards to only roll with 3 D. IMO if your D aren't producing, and you can't find a better one off FA, just roll with more forwards. With proper planning you may only lose a few man-games and in the end it will be worth it because your forward will still outproduce D.

      Alternatively, if your D aren't doing anything, try to pick up a D only to win certain categories. Ie - search for the top ranked D at +/-, PIMs, SOG, etc. This will ensure you at least win that category.

    • drop MA Bergeron, hes bin a healthy scratch for the last week or so. look at a guy like ryan ellis or jared spurgeon

    • Well you have a bunch of under performing players.

      Ryan
      Staal
      Ovechkin
      Miller

      and Skinner and Crosby who are injured. If these guys were playing at the level they should be you'd be fine but they're not.

      • I picked up Ryan and Staal off waivers, so they were better than who they replaced. Plus Staal and Ovi seemed to have picked up their games. Maybe should I trade one of my excess forwards and acquire a point producing defenceman to replace one of my non-producing ones? I dropped Liles when he was put on the IR so he was really my only productive dmen other than Bergeron who was great at the beginning but his point producing games seemed to have tapered off.

    • you need to get some better +/- players on your team, try and get some boston guys if ya can. was marchand dropped? bergeron would be a great piece to add. maybe use kessel for a big trade, seems to be cooling off now.
