So I think I have a pretty decent team with a good core. I have made about 5 trades so far. My real weakness's I see are Goaltending which in my mind at the start of the year would be one of the leagues best but disappointing seasons have f'd me over. I lost Ales Hemsky to shoulder surgery. Demitra is just plugging a whole right now as well as Blake
My idea is move on of my RW and a Goalie to try and upgrade for a better Goalie..
Any ideas would be great, if you want to rip on my team that's cool too. I came in 1st in this league last year so I can't be too bad.
sourey is done but thats not gonna help you you need a goalie but i don't think you will make up enough points at this time of the year. should have traded in beginning of jan. try trading doan and thomas foer a better goalie but i dont think anyone would bite on that you may have to give up iginla
Souray just broke his hand, as well...
You aren't looking too shabby, but in a 14 GM league, that's 28 starting goalies gone if everybody's got two, and I'm sure there are more than a few teams with three, or even four. Your only hope is to pull a trade, but remember that Backstrom isn't expected to be out long, if at all this week.
Watch for trades as well, if Dallas deals Turco at the deadline they may ride Auld for the rest of the year (they're giving Auld starts at the moment, if you're really stuck you might be able to pick him up).
Also, it may be worth noting that with the Olympic break, a lot of back-to-backs will be played. You could check out who'll be playing them, and grab a backup from a decent team for spot starts.
