    Strategy Help [Long Read]

    Sorry to bother you but I have nobody else to tell my fantasy league problems to lol. Okay. I am in this 20 man league so its really deep, and I managed to walk away with a plethora of centres (Henrik Sedin, Brad Richards, Oli Jokinen, Thomas Plekanec, and Mikhail Grabovski).

    I decided since I have so many centres it would be best to trade a player to help out my weak area (D), rather then letting them sit on the bench (only can play 3C's). Now my problem is I dont know which of the three I mentioned (Oli Jokinen, Thomas Plekanec, and Mikhail Grabovski) I should trade. Now normally I wouldn't care but since the league is so deep, every point is crucial and I would just feel better getting somebodies opinion on it.

    Its really hard to pin point the point totals for them, but its safe to say at bare minimum they will each produce 55+ points. Plekanec and Jokinen to me seems like they could rack up the most points because they have done it before but Grabovski has been really consistent and since the leafs just got another legit Top 6 Forward to play with him, it should help out and I wouldnt be surprised to see him finish the highest among them.

    Which one do you think I should trade? And for who?

    P.S - Sorry for boring you half to death.

    • I would for sure drop Plekanec.Between Jokinen & Grabovski, they will be pretty close in points but I would say keep Jokinen since he will be on jets number 1 power play. Grabovski will be on the leafs 2nd PP unit.

    • Grabovski is the first one I would place on the market.

    • I think Jokinen is the most valuable out of these three.
      expect 20G 60Pts 50PIM 200SOG PLUS and a good PP production as the minimum.
      Thats good value in a deep league.
      Also i think Plekanec struggled a little bit and will regain the #1 center in MTL. Sure, he got some competition in the long haule in this draft, but consider him a top6 forward for the future.

      Grabovksi is kind of the Plekanec of the Leafs... 50PIM and 60Pts possible, but I dont see him crack 60Pts ... just dont see it... in Toronto they all talk about Kadri, JVR and others for the future... he has a lot of talent though and this you should try to trade with the argument the help will help him raise his production... I personally think it will drop because he will get less ice time...

      Personally I would try to get Wheeler from him... Jokinen-Wheeler is a nice combo in FH... and right now not so many people realise what a heck of a FH player this guy can be...
