Obviously can't see your entire stats but look at your roster's 30 day stats and look for the weakness. If it is PPP's or +/- or #$%$'ts or PIM's choose the best player for your roster in order to strengthen the weaknes. And I mean it , pick a pure +/- or whatever stat that needs fixing to fill the void
