    accept giroux trade?

    Lindback, Bobrovsky, and Vokoun are my three guesses at "underdog" goalies. It's kind of amazing that Vokoun could be an underdog, but I predict that he'll take the starting job away from Fleury this year. Hiller should have a bounce-back year too.

      • Look, there are 7 skater categories in his league and 4 goalie categories. Yahoo has Niemi vastly underrated, and Callahan is a beast across all categories. Giroux is a great player, but you have to ask yourself -- is he worth a top-ten goalie and a second-line cross-category beast? Jokinen isn't going to be winning any awards anytime soon, so he's sort of a cheap add-on to a Giroux for Niemi & Callahan trade. I admit that I can understand the rationale for making the deal, but I wouldn't do it. To put it in perspective, I was recently made an offer of Mikko Koivu and Alex Semin for Niemi alone. I took it...but only because I had three other starters. You can't undervalue the quality starters, and regardless of Yahoo's ranking, Niemi is probably a top-ten netminder.

      • I'd love to have this guy Linzman in my league. He is probably the worst evaluator of fantasy hockey talent I've seen in years on this board.
