    Thanks Erik! I held off on Spezza.............but, just made a move for N Backstrom from WAS!
    I've never really been sold on Spezza....and Backstrom is usually GOLD for A's/PPA's! It's tough giving up Tarasenko...but, I'm happy with the fwds I have left!

    I like it! Yes you'd be giving up Sid, but, you get Ovie (Pts, Hit's, SOG's) AND a better Goalie in Bishop!

    Can you please answer my Tarasenko question?

    Tough trade

    I wouldn't do it either.....Getz is fantasy gold (pts, hit's and Pim's) AND Seguin is turning into a fantasy beast too (and he's really clicking with Spezza/Benn)! Crosby is gold too (we all know that), but, Brad Richards is a Waiver Wire guy (in most leagues), and despite being an amazing Dman, Doughty won't rack up the pts that you'll lose by dealing Getz/Seguin!

    QUICK: Kronwall 4 Brodie???

    It's a tempting deal, but, what makes me question it is the fact that the Blues goalie situation isn't settled yet! Allen is coming up quickly.....so you could potentially be dealing for a goalie that will only get a % of the starts (assuming you DON'T have Allen too)!

    I need to get rid of Elias

    If you don't have anyone else to drop, I'd look at dropping him for Brock Nelson/Kucherov! I try to look for guys that are multi-positional!
    Keep in mind it's still VERY early...and there's a lot of hockey to be played! Some of these breakout guys (i.e. Nelson/Severson/Boychuk/Bonino/etc) will eventually cool down..

    Can you please answer my Tarasenko question in this forum??

    Vanek flop

    I've had Vanek a few times over the past few years, and he's easily one of THE most frustrating guys to own! Be patient, and he'll turn it around! If you have other guys on your bench, drop one of them for Callahan to boost your hit's/pims! Maybe even look at Downie! I know it sounds crazy, but, he's on the Pens, and getting decent points (in addition to his specialty, Hit's/PIM's)!
    Can you pls answer my Tarasenko question in this forum??

    The only one I would consider dropping is Plek (maybe for Kucherov ).......but, def not Backstrom!!

    Filip Forsberg breakout season??

    I'm not sure if he can sustain this pace, but, I do think he's the real deal! What I like about him too, he's multipositional (C/LW/RW), that's gold to me! I would def hang on to him..
    Can you please look at my Tarasenko post?? (I guess it's kind of like yours...except about Tarasenko instead of Forsberg)

  • Should I deal Tarasenko for Spezza?
    (Roto league, 11 teams. Pt's for G's, A's, PPA's, PPG's, SOG's, Hit's and Pim's)
    I'm currently in 1st....but, getting killed in A's/PPA's!

    Current roster:

    C Getz
    C Couture
    LW Benn
    LW Kunitz
    RW Tarasenko (I would likely move Little into this spot)
    RW Seguin
    D Weber
    D Ekman-Larsson
    D Wideman
    D Edler
    U Brock Nelson (I would put Spezza into this slot!)
    Bench - Brian Little, Steve Downie
    Goalies - Svedberg, Rask, Luongo

    Tarasenko's on fire...............and just wondering if it's a mistake to deal him?!?!
    I would have the Stars entire top line.....which could be a mistake too if I 'lay all my eggs in one basket'!!

    Thanks!
