    Advice needed?

    I'd say be careful with Bobrovsky. If you need absolutely need goalie games then yes, go for it but if you'r doing okay in net and just looking for an extra win or 2, I'd say No. Columbus is playing well but remember, it's Columbus. I think it's a good stretch but nothing that will last very long.

    As for Tlustly, you must be in a very thin league if he's still available. I picked him up in my 14-team league early in the season and then he slumped so I ditched him...because mistake of my fantasy season so far. I'm personally a fan of Erhoff but he is streaky. Tough call...I'd say ditch Carlson!

    Can you get me some advice on my goalie dilemna for tonight...entitled PRICE

    that's a tough one...based on team I would say Fleury as Pittsburgh seems to be unable to lose a game lately with late comebacks...whereas Ottawa is struggling of late. But based on actual goalie, I think Bishop is the better bet since Ottawa has been involved in fairly low-scoring affairs and most of them going into OT or SO because the goalies are keeping them in it. Both opposite teams are struggling so that's really no decising fator. I'd say if you're looking for the win, go with Fleury but if you need to keep up with GAA and SV%, I'd say Bishop.

    Do you mind taking a look at my dilemna...my post is above yours entitled PRICE, CRAWFORD ADND ALLEN. Thanks

  • My 3 gaalies are starting tonight and I'm debating who to start.
    Price @ New Jersey
    Crawford @ Dallas
    Jake Allen vs Anaheim

    The choice seems pretty obvious....to go with the hot goalies and hot teams so Price and Crawford especially considering St.Louis is playing the second best team in the league in Anaheim.I'm just wondering if I'm missing something here...and I'm worried about Montreal historically having trouble against New Jersey.

    Any suggestions or thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

  • OVI-SEDIN Trade..just want a yay or NAY answer

    I'm giving up Ovi, Backstrom (Minnesota), Dubnyk and I get PRICE and Henrik Sedin.

    YES or NO! I'm guessing yes but it seems too good to be true, am I missing something?

  • I'm looking for a replacement manager for my roto league. The team in question currently sits in 6th place out of 14 teams (not bad considering no lineup changes have been made this year). It's an 18-team autodraft league and the manager has not logged in at all since the lockout ended. The team is listed below and is pretty stacked.

    I've given the manager till Friday night to respond. If he has not responded by then, I will transfer the team to a new manager saturday morning. Please respond with your email to transfer the team.

    Good luck

    Malkin
    Spezza
    Roy
    Eriksson
    Alfredsson
    Jagr
    Fleischmann
    Cammalleri
    Karlsson
    Pietrangelo
    Edler
    Erhoff
    White
    D. Clarkson
    Peverley
    Mike Smith (G)
    Varlamov (G)
    Reimer (G)

  • Could someone please tell me if there's a way of monitoring members activity that is more effecient and less time-consuming then simply looking at each managers lineup every night to see if players are being moved? I find it hard sometimes to tell whether a manager didn't change his lineup or simply left players out by choice. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

  • I've been offered Ovi for Rick Nash 1-for-1 trade...I'm tempted to take it but I just don't think Ovi's numbers will be that much higher than Nash's and i think nash could actually post better nu,bes as he has a better team around it. Am I crazy not to accept this trade?

  • Someone offered me OVECHKIN for RICK NASH. I know it's Ovi but I always caution myself with him because he's unpredictable. I like what Nash can do in NY with Gaborik and Richards. Am I crazy if I turn it down?

    Hiller, Bryz or Smith?

    Thanks for the feedback on my goaltending issue...I'm leaning towards Macdonald as well.

    Sorry for the late reply....the Philly/Toronto game has already started. Your games all seem a little more even....based strictly on the head-to-head team matchups, I would say Bryz and Smith....only because Toronto and San Jose are riding slumps right now....Hiller is so unpredictable and Dallas is fighting for a playoff spot so they should come out tough.

    Tough choice....I'd say Brizzy and SMith! Good luck!

    Start which goalie tonight?

    I say Elliott against Columbus. St. Louis is on fire lately and it's Columbus... and as good as Miller has been, Ottawa is holding their own lately. Definately Elliott!

  • Elliott vs Columbus
    Macdonald @ Nashville
    Niemi @ Phoenix

    Elliott is a no-brainer but I'm debating between Macdonald and Niemi. Macdonald has been the better goalie on the better team but Detroit played last night and they're playing a top Nashville team. Niemi has lost his last 4 starts but the last 2 were shoutouts and he's bound to rebound with a good game at some point.

    Who would you go with?

  • I have 4 goalies going tomorrow and they all have a positive aspect, so I need some outside views on how to read these matchups.

    Niemi @ Detroit -> don't think so, it's a Detroit home game.
    Elliot @ Chicago --> Shutout today, he's hot.
    Backstrom vs Boston --> He's never lost against Boston.
    McDonald vs San Jose --> he's hot and DET playing at home.

    I'm leaning towards Elliot and Macdonald...I figure I should go with the hot goalies and the hot teams. Just wondering if I'm missing something here....Backstrom's never lost against Boston, luck or meaningful?

    Thanks for your insight.

  • I have to start 2 of these 3...who would you start?

    Biron vs Washington
    Niemi @ St. Louis
    MacDonald vs Philly

  • Due to personal reasons, I'm unable to properly maintain my team to make it competitive for my fellow managers. This league is run by a very fair manager, no issues. I'm in 8th place, 24 points behind the leader, in a 12 team league. The team includes:

    C: Stamkos, Nugent-Hopkins
    LW: MIchalek, Nash
    RW: Seguin, Parenteau, Jagr
    D: Edler, Enstrom, Subban, Kuba, R. Whitney
    G: Price, Miller, Gustavsson, Joey Macdonald (just picked him up this morning)

    I'll send the first 3 emails to my league manager. Good luck!

  • 12-team rotisserie league with standard stats. Which players who you take in a trade?

    Clowe or Semin?

    Theodore, Varlamov or Khabibulin (rank 1 to 3)?

    Del Zotto, Burns, Enstrom or Visnovsky (rank 1 to 4)?

    Thanks!

  • Due to personal reasons and a busy work schedule, I am unable to properly manage my team at a competitive level to make it interesting for the rest of the league's managers. I can't stand it when other managers to this so I'm looking for someone to take over my team. It's a 12-team rotisserie with standard stats. I'm currentyl 7th, 29 points behind the leader. Your roster would be:

    F: Stamkos, Toews, Staal, P. Kane, Hossa, Glencross, Elias
    D: Letang, Suter, Bieksa, Del Zotto, Enstrom, Burns
    G: Varlamov, Ward, Khabibulin, Greiss

    It looks like a pretty stacked team and it is (i'm top 4 in 4 of 5 offensive categories) but my goalies have screwed me over (bottom 2 in most categories). I've attempted trades but managers in this league negotiate for 5 days and then pull the plug. I don't have time for this.

    First person to email me back gets the team...I'll forward your email to the manager...you should have the team in 2 to 3 days.

    Thanks and good luck!
