    Which Centre? Desharnais or Henrique?

    I want to grab another centre that can get me points, shots and faceoffs.

    I have been waiting out Parron and A. Macdonald, but most players from St. Louis are inconsistent points wise as they are so deep and they are also very defensive minded..similar to the Bruins.

    I been thinking about dropping one of them to grab a straight up centre such as Desharnais, Henrique or even Berglund (who has been one of the more consistent Blues) or Bozak (KIills the faceoff stat).

    Other players I'd consider dropping are J. Schultz (my D is already strong with Karlsson, Chara and Edler) and Eriksson (who has just been playing like #$%$).

    Not sure if I should wait out the Blues guys, Parron is definitely one of the best of these guys, but hasn't been finishing enough to make me happy.

    • You could tie all this together as you mention dropping D, J Schultz .

      With it sounding like you have a decent roster with extra on D to move I would consider
      a trade in a 2 for 1. Schultz is sought after and his trade value is high, bound to get you good return.

      Throw in McDonald or Perron and you are sure to land a better C than you mentioned off FA list. Have a quick look at other team's roster and see if there a re two-three teams in need of D and an extra C. McDonald is good with his LW/C designation.

      This will leave an empty spot on roster which you cold focus on a C with good FW like Bozak

      Ok, failing a trade it always good to have an extra D but if you must drop him it is gaurunteed someone will grab him

      Henrique is on the up as #1 or 2 C with Devs as is Desharnais with Habs. Both good choices and too close to call

      • This is one of the guys Team where I think he's stacked at the centre position and weak at the d (forgot to list them, I think his best was Garrison) were he might bite. Just not sure who i'd be able to grab or if the centre he parts with will me much better than who I can get on the waiver wire without losing Schultz (I don't really want to), Tyler Seguin is also another option on another team as the owner might be frustrated with him. Loui Erikkson is also #$%$ me off, specially right now since I see Derek Roy just came back and already has a point and I dropped P.A. Parenteau a few weeks back so I could grab Conacher and now he's tearing it up. Oh fantasy hockey why do you make me love/hate hockey sooooo much.
