I think I need another RW.
Available FA's are Palveski, Bergfors, Okposo, Vrbata and Voracek? Who should I drop / add?
C: Stastny, Zajac, Kesler
RW: Selanne, Afinogenov, Semin (IR)
LW: Neal, Vanek, JVR, Penner
D: Boyle, Rafalski, Lidstrom, Souray
G: Kipper, Anderson, Osgood
Is RW my biggest need? I have been unsuccessful in trading with other managers (no responses or trades done by anyone this yr), so I am stuck trying to improve in the FA pool.
Don't drop Vanek, he might not be producing right now, but he's a solid player who could turn it on at any time.
Why don't you just put Semin on your IR list then pick up Palveski and see how he goes. Or if you do drop someone JVR is probably a good call. You definitely don't want to get rid of a keeper. JRV/Lidstrom trade was a good call ... who knows you might get lucky and pull off a trade.
So, should I add Pavalski (will his min. go down when Seto comes back?) for JVR (Gange coming back will reduce his min, right?) or Vanek (generally not producing) or Osgood?
Any more opinions? Or should I just wait - I sort of need a RW for Semin (IR).
You know, I didn't realize just how good of a season Ryan Kesler has been having. I was going to suggest dropping him for added RW depth, or picking up a better C, but then I looked at his stats. Jeez.
Your RWs aren't too bad. They both get lots of PP time, but Selanne's not going to score many at even strength this year and his +/- will probably be in the tank. Afinogenov will keep scoring, but I doubt he tops out about 70 or 75 points.
If you're looking for long-term success, I'd drop James van Riemsdyk - which I just did in my league. He may produce during the rest of the year, but he's a rookie and he's getting bumped down the charts once Gagne returns. All your other position players are fairly well cemented in their roles.
It's too bad no one is responding to trade requests; it'd be a shame to just drop JVR instead of packaging him and Lidstrom in a trade for a RW and D.
