Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
I'm currently playing in a keeper league that allows 8 keepers. My roster is
C: Crosby, Brayden Schenn, Jeff Carter
LW: Jordan Staal, Alex Semin, James van Riemsdyk
RW: Eberle, Patrick Kane, Tarasenko
D: Mike Green, Oliver Ekman-Larsson, Justin Schultz, Duncan Keith
G: Price, Niemi
BN: Hodgson, Brent Burns, Derek Roy, Cogliano, Henrique
So far, I've potentially decided on 7 of my keepers, and have chosen Crosby, Schenn, Staal, Eberle, Kane, Price, and Oliver Ekman-Larsson. I have room for one more, however. Should I keep Vladimir Tarasenko or Justin Schultz, and why?
Also, should I make any changes to my current keepers?
Schultz. Look at the forwards he'll be playing with: Hall, Eberle, Yakupov, RNH. He will score points by default. Tarasenko will be playing in a more defensive style under Hitchcock, therefore, less scoring, more defense.
Can't recommend changes to your keepers you listed.
Your last choice is tough though seeing how they are only two games into NHL.
Regardless Tara has a had a good start with 5 pts/2 games. Shultz is from what I understand a "can't miss" dman.
To me forwards are plentiful but a standout Dman are rare so I would lean that way. This also bares
in mind that you did select 5 FW as keepers already omitting Keith.
I would wait until last minutes before turning names in. When do you need them in? Keepers are
usually done at end of season.

Keith will be 30 at the end of the year, so I'm not sure if I should keep him or not. His form's also been declining, and while he's a very good D man still, I'm not sure if he's as good of a bet for the future. It's why OEL is my only D-man keeper so far. Thanks for your input though. I need to turn them in at the end of the season
