    Who Whould You Keep?

    10 Team League and we keep ten in our league with a heavy emphasize on Goalie stats including GA & L. Normal scoring other then that.

    I am definitely keeping this 5:

    Backstrom (c)

    I need to pick 5 out of these 8:

    M. Richards
    E. Kane
    M. Smith (g)
    C. Crawford (g)

    Who would you keep out of those 8.

    • Backes, Ryan, Kane, Crawford, and Hossa

    • Hossa - Consistent production
      Crawford - Only going to get better after the sophomore slump
      Ryan - Going to rebound after the disappointing year
      Kane - Due for a breakout
      M. Richards - Should get better after getting acclimated with LA

    • With a heavy emphasis on goal i would personally keep both Crawford and Smith. You don't know who will be available at the draft next year and if there is someone better you can always grab them and then trade Crawford or Smith to someone really hurting for a goalie and make them overpay since goaltending will be a hard commodity to come across.

      My other three would be Backes, Kane and one of Hossa or Ryan. Probably Ryan though since Hossa is getting up there in age and it's also a miracle he wasn't injured for a considerable amount of time. Also Ryan should be better next year.

      Backes and Kane are very good in formats where you have PIM and HITS. Along with contributing to points it's hard to find players that do it in all categories. Especially since you already have your offensive type players they will be very good support for your team if you have those as stats in your pool.

    • I'd keep,
      Hossa, Ryan, Semin, Smith, and Kane.

      Hossa is Hossa. Ryan should turn it around next year. Semin will most likely get traded and should do well on a new team. Smith seems to have finally found his game, tho still not a Lundquist, Fluery, or Luongo. Kane is do for a breakout season and he seems to be on the verge of it, if not beginning it already. I see him being one of the tops in the league next year.

      Best of luck,
