    • Post the top 20-30 FA's and top 10 G FA's. It looks like you are heavy on the PIM's with 2 true meatheads. Has to someone that will give the PIM;s and put a few in the net as well.

      For a goalie throw a trade with Winnik, he is hot and being grabbed up, Same goes for Conacher but I think he is a keeper

      If Boedker keeps it he can be used for bait but for now Winnik is best option.

      Try a two for one for both Lindback and Pavelec. You are in crummy spot without a #1 and have no chance unless there is a serious injury.

      1/Offer Winnick for Linbak and Pav,,,, tell each offer is good for 48 hours.
      2/ If no luck send both Winnick and one of you goalies (same offer for both)
      3/ Winnick/Boedker/Goalie for Linback/W or Pav/W

      Labarbera might go on waivers this week so there is a need to look at other FA's tenders

      Post FA lists I mentioned and let's have a look

    • I would go after Lindback. He's young and may let in a lot of goals but he has a powerful Lightening offence in front of him. Plus I haven't heard so much hype about a young goalie in a long time. Pavelec is also very, very good when he's good ... and every few games will give up a lot of goals. Pavelec is probably the better goalie ... Lindback may get more wins. Toss up ...

    • How big is your league? Your team is not deep at all. I would target Pavalec out of the three you listed. Also maybe target Cam Ward, struggling from the start but should bounce back and will get you a lot of wins since he starts alot.
