General Message Board
In a 12-team H2H league with skater stats G, A, +/-, PIM, PPP, SOG and goalie stats W, GAA, SV%, SHO. I'm going to miss the playoffs so looking to rebuild and trade who I won't be keeping for a draft pick. My first 4 keepers are Patrick Kane, Lundqvist, Couture, Weber. Who would your 5th be? Kopitar or Howard? I'm planning on trying to deal who I won't keep but hard to guess who'd be a better option next year.
Team A gets: Ovie Alex G (from MTL) Eddie Lack Dion Pheneuf
Team B gets: Taylor Hall Jordan Eberle Matt Deuche David Desjardins(from MTL)
Just in general who wins the eye test
The stats are basic stats and both of us get equal positional need
Consider Markov with Hab PP on fire
If not convinced for Markov you have some very good options. Consider rotation versus locking in to one player. Bring in a player verse weak teams or at home games only and play this advantage
Yahoo does seem to have issues this year. I experienced same and heard others as well.
Not great news but we are all in same boat with occasional player.
Reject offer. Bad bench management on his part. Don't let him off the hook with trade, let him pay full price for over playing and watch him drop in standings
Keep Byfuglien as your 4th D with Weber, OEL and Gio.
That leaves you one spot for up front and I would consider keeping Steen, Callahan or taking a risk on Gaudreau. I would lean with Steen because St Louis is potent up front. He could be playing on the first line or second and put up great numbers.
my two cents
(keep in mind i've only played one year leagues so far)
Giordano over Seabrook
I would wait and see how the situation in Toronto pans out. If Phaneuf stays, I would drop him (you can always find PIM elsewhere) and keep Byfuglien as 4th D
that would leave two F spots open for Steen and Gaudreau
then target best available RW in the draft
Need some advice on whether to trade Carey Price for Stamkos. The trade was proposed by our league leader (he's way, way, ahead) who is almost out of centre/right wing games but has goalie space. I know goalies don't generate a lot of points, but the fantasy points for Price & Stamkos are pretty even over the past 30 days. While I do need a better C/RW, I also have Holtby (I had Miller, too, but dropped him yesterday). I wouldn't have to drop a C/RW for Stamkos, because I have Okposo on the IR.
Is it me or does Yahoo randomly change the lineup? I use a script to make sure I don't have anyone on the bench. I run it, check values for a few weeks, and everything seems fine. Then one day I'll look to see my stats and I have someone on the bench. Does this happen to anyone else?
How deep is this league? You have 2 forwards who see a huge percentage of starts for their team which works in your favor. Especially if you have wins, shots against, and saves as some stats. They also put up decent gaa and sv% stats so I would probably just keep them and hope for the best in the playoffs.
If your playoffs start the same time as mine (March 23rd)
You should see about 4-5 starts in total the first week (NJ has a back to back and Washington has leaned heavily on Holtby all year).
4-6 starts in the second week. (both teams have back to backs with 4 games for each team).
4-6 starts in the third week.
I'd stand pat. Even without Talbot those are pretty solid amounts of starts and with the way they've leaned on their starters I would say that 5, 6, and 6 starts for each is not out of the possibility.
If Lundqvist doesn't come back and you have Talbot as well then it's just gravy.
Would you be able to answer my keeper question as well?
Saw there was another thread asking this same questions, obviously a position a lot of people are in right now.
I'm currently sitting third in a 10 team points only pool. I'm 25 points back of first and this Kane injury is absolutely devastating. He was hands down my best player so I need a solid replacement. I have very good goaltending so I could still make a run. Here are the best options:
Eberle (been very hot lately)
I am leaning toward either Bjugstad, Galchenyuk or Markov who has put up 9 pts in his last 10 games.
What you guys think?
Question in regards to playoffs:
In net I have Holtby, Schneider, and Talbot right now, but once Lundqvist returns Talbot is gone and I'm left with just the two. What's the smart move, look for an upgrade and sacrifice depth (my biggest strength in my league), or stand pat and hope Holtby and Schneider keep playing as brilliantly as they have while keeping my team intact?
T. Hall- IR
My forwards aren't the sexiest of names but out of all the teams in my league they are the best bang for your buck collectively, and they have done really well for me. However I worry if I break them up I fear I'd lose what has made me so good in my league. Any ideas or thoughts on my team going into the playoff will be appreciated, as well as an answer to my question above.
P.S. I'm considering dropping Fisher for Versteeg, do I do it?
