    Who 2 Keep

    12 Team H2H Points League, I get to keep 5 skaters and 1 goalie
    BUT, 2 of the skaters must be different from those I chose last year (Ovi/Parise/Kane/Pominville/RNH)
    So, my team is as follows with 'Name(Avg PtsPerGame)'

    C: Kopitar(2.7) - RNH(1.9) - Kesler(3.0)
    LW: Parise(2.9) - Morrow(1.5) - Jokinen(1.5)
    RW: Kane(3.4) - Yakupov(1.9) - Ovi(4.4)
    D: Campbell(2.1) - Markov(2.7) - Beauchemin(1.4) - Hillen(1.4)
    G: Fleury(5.0) - Backstrom(4.8) - Bachman(2.8) - Mason(2.2)

    Notable Free Agents-- Backes(1.3) - Lucic(1.9) - Carlson(1.4) - Heatley(1.9) - Hedman(1.0) - Saad(1.7) - Tarasenko(1.9) - O'Reilly(2.0)...

    So, basically I just want to run my keeper choices by you guys-- I'm thinking of going with:
    Ovechkin-Kane-Parise-Kopitar-Markov-Fleury

    I know that RNH and Yakupov are almost must-keep in a keeper league, but considering the strength of my team (and the fact that keeping RNH would force me to drop one of Ovi/Kane/Parise) I think it's safe to pass them up at this point. If anyone sees a terrible and idiotic flaw in my rationale please let me know.

    I'm open to any and all suggestions; whatever ideas/insight you can provide would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks in advance guys, and let me know if you have a post that you want me to look into.

    • Ovechkin Kane Kopitar Parise Yakupov Fleury. Don't keep a D man. You can draft at least equal to what you're choosing from.

    • Ovi
      Kane
      Parise
      Yakupov (RNH wont be healthy to begin the season and Yakupov will get out fast from the gate)
      Campbell or Kopitar (C will benefit from Huberdeau lighting it up in his 2nd year, Kopitar is Kopitar)
      Backstrom (Fleury might split duties with Vokoun and will get no shutouts in Pittsburgh)

      Hope that helps

      • Thanks guys, I was really torn on whether keeping a dman was worth it, if Yakupov can keep up his pace and not fall into a sophomore slump I should be pretty set... I'm still not sure on goalie choice... Fleury may be terrible in the postseason, but that's really none of my concern as long as he can hold it together for the regular season games... I don't know yet, but I'll definitely have to think on it now that you mention it-- Again, thank you both
