For me I go with proven players over a roookie. Unless there is an outstanding rookie and he wasn't touted as 'The Next Great Thing". Tara has had a great start btu pnly time will tell. Can't help you on that one
Leddy is your guy here with over +40% of Hawk PP and about 20% of even strength ice. Have to think he will bring you more than others mentioned
Salo was here in Van for years but always seems to get hurt once, twice or three times a year. He would be second choice.
