    It's tough- seems that teams kept 4 & 5 goalies as keepers from the previous season, so I took over a team that is quite weak in that category, and there were no real solid net minders in the draft. Best I recovered was Halak and Miller

  • So, I can pick one goalie for keepers, rest are susceptible to the draft.

    Jones, Schneider, Fleury.

    My senses say Jones, but all of them were solid last season. Fleury isn't quite supplanted from Pittsburgh yet, seeing as Murray is out six weeks with a broken hand. Plus, he plays lights-out during the regular season.

    Drop someone for E Staal

    I drafted Hartnell in front of Staal this season.
    E. Kane went fairly late in the draft to boot.
    If you want a safer bet, drop Kane and keep Staal. However, you might wanna wait a few games in the season to see. With Sabres getting Okposo, Kane may be bumped down the lines.

    He was selected first overall one of my leagues just drafted, but it was also a keeper league with previous commitments to star players. If there is immediate, brutal force available (ie Benn, Crosby, Seguin, etc.) in the position of most need, then I would definitely draft that first overall, and hope Matthews falls in your lap next round.

    Keep Drouin, Draisaitl or Domi?

    they all (should) be solid players in the next few following seasons, but it's difficult to put a measure on development in only two years' time. I would say either Drouin or Domi. Domi will likely get you a better all-rounded stat game with hits and pims.

    So far it's G, A, +/-, PPP, SOG, PIM for skaters aod GAA, SV%, W, SHO for goalies. Probably adding SHP, BLK, HITS in the following season.

    Dude is desperate for King Henrik, is a die hard Rangers fan, but I would also be giving up youth in exchange for veterans. Sharp is still good, and i like Thornton, but Rinne seems hurt more often than Lundqvist.

    in a keeper league, was offered:

    Rinne, J Thornton, and P Sharp


    Lundqvist, Schiefele, and T Ennis

    Now, Schiefele is a younger, more promising player than Jumbo Joe, but he's a better immediate point producer. Rinne is even more injury prone than King Henrik, but has a few more years to play. Sharp will put up more points than Ennis.
