Toews and M. Richards are both guaranteed yes! The third is the optional: you could go with B. Richard, who has less points than Spezza, but gets that hope for consistency from playing on a top team. Spezza has faced injury problems in the past and could slow down. If you only look at production, however, Spezza is the clear winner. The choice between the two is yours.
On another note, check FA to see if you pick up better D-Men.

With the Fleury, you will get wins. But with Lund, you get all the other stats because he practically does most of the responsibility for his team on defence.

It's tough considering that they are both starting goalies. It's a risk, but I'd go with Nabby because I see him getting traded this season.

I'll go one by one here.
Howard is the better goalie this year. For the good part of it, the Wings were winning because he's simply been SPECTACULAR.
Miller, on the other hand, has been mediocre.
WINNER: TEAM B (wide margin)
Tavares is a very hot and cold player. You can expect his production to be similar to last season.
Stamkos is once again on route to 50+ goals, and probably leading goal scorer, which makes him the best on Team B next to Howard.
Richards was cold to start, but has found some great chemistry with his line-mates as of late. Still don't expect a career season, but he should be in the top 30 in points.
Dustin Brown is playing on the team with the fewest GF in the league. It should improve with the return of Richards, but he will provide a great number of hits.
Hossa is IMO having his best season with Chicago. Don't expect a career season, but something very close.
Carter is feeling the problems of playing with the worst team in the league, so don't expect to be srewed in the +/- category. When Wisniewski and he have been IN the lineup at the same time, Columbus has an above .500 record. However, he will miss some games.
WINNER: TEAM A (close call)
In conclusion, the winner between the two teams will depend on the stats recorded. If you were to look at the raw content, I would pick Team B as the winner, simply based on the production from Howard and Stamkos, compared to Richards and Hossa. The wild-card on A is Tavares and Miller, and on B is Brown and Carter. Hope this helps.

I need to drop either Byfuglien or Doughty. I added Edler when Doughty got on the IR, but he's healthy now, and my worst D-men are the Byuf and Doughty. Who to drop?

I don't want to replace you, but here's a few suggestions to help you get by. Drop Grabovski and pick up Henrique. Also drop Hedman and pick up Kulikov. These two moves alone should vastly improve your team.

In essence, the choice is between Plek, Kane, and Golig. I would go with either Plek or Kane simply b/c they are going more points than a D-Man. Kane is on fire (and having generally a better season), so I'd choose him.

Nothing very obvious because the possible success of each goalie depends on chance.
Neuvirth: Lately, he's simple been the better goalie when compared to Vokoun. It'll be interesting to see how it turns out. WILDCARD!
Bobsky: Bryz has not been the best goalie in the league (sarcasm), but neither has Bobsky. You'll get some GP and Wins, but don't expect him to replace Bryz simply because of ridiculous contracts.
Montoya: He has been the best goalie with the loss producing Islanders, but there is a goalie madness in Isle land with 2 other goalies playing quite mediocre. From an organization standpoint, Dipietro is the starter 1A (on IR more than starting), and Nabokov is starter 1B. Montoya is the better goalie in performance, but has not been the getting Games. It also possible that Nabby or Dipietro suddenly becomes great (but unlikely based on track record).
Jiggy: Been WAY better than Varmolov, but the organization is building Varmolov and sees him as the starter far into the future. Therefore, Jiggy has barely gotten any games.
Mason: At the start of the season, I thought he would become the starter; however, the organization has chosen Pavelec as the starter, and his play has been stellar as of late.
Garon: Hit and miss so far. While Roli has been terrible, Garon has been sometimes good and sometimes bad for Tampa.
My choice: Montoya, Garon, or Neuvirth. Caution on Neuvirth!: Vokoun is a hot and cold goalie, and it's equally likely that Neuvirth is tossed aside, when Vokoun is hot again.
