Need 4 keepers
roto league almost everthing counts.. 20 player teams start 6fwds 3dmen and 1 goalie everyday
extra pts for pp points, +/- is 0.5 of a point as well or -0.5
have to keep 4 of these
So I am a homer for Eberle so I think he is a for sure, also karlsson and fleury should be an automatic.. so really im havin troubles with the last pick.. still the 4 you would keep is what the question is for tho haha thanks guys!
I agree with your first 3 choices for sure.
Personally I would go with Staal as your 4th, the canes are set up for a pretty good offensive year.
The devils are on the decline, and I think there is going to be too much drama going on with Kovalchuk, he doesn't even want to play in the nhl.
Backstrom has too many questions with his health, although if he is healthy not keeping him could really backfire.
and Pacorietty isn't worth a keeper spot in your format.
I'd keep Karlsson, Backstrom, and Fleury. Final spot is up in the air. Between Eberle, E.Staal, and Kovalchuk it's a tough choice. A case could be made for either one of them, I'm not as high on Eberle as everyone else, and would probably take E. Staal myself.
But taking Eberle still makes a lot of sense, and the fact that your an Oilers fan makes him an even more intriguing option.
No question that Karlsson is a keeper, and if you need a goalie then Fleury makes a lot of sense. I'm not so sure about Eberle though. If you are set on those three though, I'd definitely take Backstrom as your 4th guy.
Having said that, I'd probably take Staal or Kovalchuk over Eberle. Kovalchuk has said he's going to come back to NA after the KHL All-Star game, and he's absolute dynamite for PPP, which your league gives special emphasis to. Additionally, I'd be looking to grab a bunch of top centers if your league counts FOW but doesn't specify forward positions. Having Backstrom and Staal would be great for that.
The reason I'd leave Eberle off the list is because he doesn't provide as much peripherally as the others. Staal has great FOW, and SOG numbers as well as solid PIMs. Kovalchuk is one of the best SOG guys out there. Eberle only had 10 PIM and didn't crack 200 SOG last year.
My final 4 would be Karlsson, Staal, Backstrom and Fleury. Hope that helps.
Go with the 3 you want and I'm picking Backstrom for the 4th.
I would go E.Karlsson, Eberle, Fleury, and Backstrom

I also agree with your first 3 choices. I'd go with Backstrom as your 4th. For me it was a toss up of Backstrom vs. Kovalchuk and I gave the edge to Backstrom. Hope this helps.
