    Re: Nash or Gagner worth owning?

    Well sure, but I was referring to salary effects, and sometimes it's worth losing a pick to free up some space.

    Re: Grabovski going forward...

    Quite possibly, though his place on the depth chart could make a big difference, depending where he signs. If we ignore the last 8 games, when Grabo was coming off a long-term ankle injury, and...

    Re: Nash or Gagner worth owning?

    Not bad. You freed up three roster spots if you include Sceviour, and a good chunk of cap. I'd rather be out the 20th overall pick this year than stuck with those two for years to come.

    Really hard to know in a cap league. Sometimes someone takes a chance on a big money guy, other times you can't get rid of him even by passing him through waivers. I play in a league where Gaborik...

    There seems to be high overall confidence in Bernier being the real deal, with the only concern being his team's wretched defence. That said, we have only seen one full season from him. Is he really...

    Re: Nash or Gagner worth owning?

    Oh wow, that is really interesting. No affect on you next year at all? I think I'd jump on that. The cap space and roster spots are valuable assets in their own right.

    Snow has done some good things. He pulled Moulson, Parenteau and Grabner out of thin air. He takes chances on guys, and sometimes he gets results. Not the greatest at asset management, and maybe he...

    Yeah, the first four are great, four probably is the pinnacle, and on the other side of that pinnacle is the ledge that breaks off, and somehow ends up above you ass you fall, Wile. E Coyote style.
