I'm going to say Landeskog especially if the league includes hits. He's a great fantasy asset with the ridiculous amount of shots and hits he takes.

Good trade for you. I honestly don't even know what the other guy is thinking. Couturier isn't even fantasy relevant at this point in his career.

Gudas is the 5th highest fantasy scoring defenseman in the league right now (assuming your league includes hits). Definitely not a no-brainer. Drop Killorn instead. He was only really playing well when he was on a line with St. Louis AND Stamkos.

Yeah, it might be a little confusing at first, but he went off the ice right after he made the pass that got him the secondary assist. If you watch the highlights, Schwartz, Tarasenko, and Sobotka are the forwards on the ice. Then, he was on the ice when Brenden Dillon scored his goal, which made him a -1. Then he evened it out when he scored his own goal.

It obviously depends on who team B is going to have to drop to make room for the extra player, but I think it's pretty much a safe trade for either side. Ovechkin is obviously the best fantasy player in the game, but Perry is top 5 as well. Throwing JVR in the mix (granted he's struggling a bit lately) mostly evens it out. JVR should pick his game up pretty soon, I can just feel it.

Kane easily. He's a fantasy juggernaut. Even when he's not scoring he puts up just as many fantasy points as anyone else in the league.
A manager in my league is trying to sell low on Giroux and Neal, but I would have to send Tavares and Nielsen the other way. Obviously the side I would be getting has more upside, but they have been kind of unreliable so far this season. Looking forward, would you rather have Giroux and Neal or Tavares and Nielsen?
Reimer. Giguere is great, but Reimer will get a lot more starts than Giguere going forward (unless of course Varlamov ends up in jail lol).
I get: Lundqvist, Parenteau
I give: Schneider, Vrbata
I've been wanting to buy low on Lundqvist for a while and the owner doesn't care much for the goalie category. Parenteau just got moved back with Duchene and O'Reilly as a result of the Downie trade so I think he should be back to his normal self in no time. Schneider is the go-to guy now in New Jersey, but they just can't seem to piece any wins together. What do you guys think?

Ruutu's promotion to first line was not a wake up call for Semin. If anything, it was a wake up call for Tlusty, but it was probably just a shake-up in the lines to see if anything good can come of it. Semin will always play with Eric, that line wasn't changed once last season. If Skinner does bounce back, that doesn't mean he earns Semin's spot on the top line. He will most likely play with Jordan regardless of how well he bounces back. I couldn't see him playing with Eric unless it was on the power play. I don't see a single reason why Semin wouldn't repeat last year's production.
My personal prediction (obviously very rough):
Semin: 26g, 44a, -2, 70 PIM, 20 PPP, 235 SOG, 31 HITS
Pietrangelo: 12g, 42a, +24, 27 PIM, 26 PPP, 188 SOG, 72 HITS
Franzen: 26g, 27a, +9, 50 PIM, 16 PPP, 206 SOG, 78 HITS
Keith: 8g, 43a, +10, 46 PIM, 21 PPP, 183 SOG, 44 HITS
So yes, take that trade.

I would have to go with Couture solely for the injury factor that always seems to plague Lupul. If they both played a full season, Lupul would be the better fantasy player.
G(3), A(2), +/-(1), PPP(1), PIM(0.5), SOG(0.4), HITS(0.4)
Do I drop Michalek for Chiasson? Obviously if everyone can stay healthy, Michalek's line is considered one of the best in the league, but they just haven't started off the way I expected them to. Chiasson has 9 goals in his first 11 games of his career, he gets power play time with Seguin and Benn, and he could even get bumped to the top line at some point. Should I just stay patient?
