Drafted too many C, need to make moves
So I drafted the team in my signature back in September. I quite like it the only problem is I have wayyy to many centres, and need to add 2 wingers. I draft my team using a spreadsheet, in each category I list the top value from the previous year (i.e. 347 G last season), as I add players their projections are added so I can see which categories Iím lightest in. My lightest skater categories are +/-, PIM and HITS. Iím thinking about the following moves to rectify that:
1. Drop Rinaldo for Daniel Carcillo (LW). I know some argue against 2 category goons but a stud in those categories takes me from 6-7th to top 2 in each of them which is enough to justify 1 roster spot. I drafted Rinaldo thinking he was a winger but espn only lists him as a C. Reports are Carcillo is healthy (for now) which will mean high PIM and HIT totals. The nice part about the band-aid boy status is if he gets hurt I simply move on to the next best option. Lots of outlets list Konopka as a LW/C however espn only gives him C if he gets LW eligibility Iíll add him instead.
2. Drop Desharnais/Berglund for Matt Cooke (LW). I hate to drop Desharnais because I am thinking heíll have a good year with solid A and PPP totals however heís the softest guy on my team whoís dispensable. Cooke gets me LW status, a solid +/-, HITS, PIMs and hopefully a few SHP.
These moves would leave me with 4 LW, 4 RW and 6 C those ratios are very workable in my league with the 3 Utility positions and Iíll never lose an opportunity to max out games played.
Iíve also been offered Vanek (LW) for Thornton (C) straight up. This alleviates my LW issue but I donít think gives me good value. I lose out in most categories and it doesnít address the PIM, HITs issue.
