    Default Goalies

    Which of these young goalies do you like in a keeper? Matt Hackett, Kevin Poulin, or Richard Bachman. Who do you see taking the next step into full-time starter the fastest.

    In three years, who do you like more out of these Dallas guys? Rank if you feel like it

    Chiasson
    Stransky
    A.Smith
    R.Smith

    And these SJ goalies...

    Stalock
    Sateri

    Also, just wanted to say that in the last year or so your writing has gotten noticeably better. Not just the quantity, which in itself is impressive, but also the quality. It's a pleasure reading your work. Keep at it
    GO WINGS!

    Looking at my roster, prospects included, who would you trade for Markstrom straight up? If not straight, what package would you offer up?

    One of the hot debates recently has been who will center the Sabres top line. I'll give you the choices of Ennis, Hodgson, or other. Who do you think and why?

    I was going to ask if in a standard category and position keeper league drafting today you would place Rask as a top 10 goalie. Howver, you did just that in your " Top 10 Keeper League Goaltenders." If drafting a keeper today, please explain what you see in Rask over proven vets like Luongo and Fleury.

    As always, thank you for the response.

    Default Brian Gionta

    I see that Brian Gionta has drop again in the Top 300 Player rankings and now sits at a lowly #270. His projection in the Guide is also very low. Is there a reason for this that I'm missing? I believe his bicep has healed and I'd expect him to play on Montreal's 2nd line and PP unit.

    Is it out of the question to hope that he returns to his 46-50 point days?

    I traded Kulikov and Grigorenk for Byfuglien in my points only keeper, good move?

    What is your prediction for Halak this year in terms of wins and shutouts and how big of a threat is Elliott?
    12 team points only keeper (G = 1, A = 1, W = 2, SO = 2)
    Dress 6 forwards, 4 defensemen, 2 goalies
    Roster limit - 20 plus 4 prospects


    Forwards: Crosby, Malkin, Neal, Seguin, Bozak, Gaborik, Fleischmann, Marchand, Brassard, Franzen, Stewart

    Defense: Byfuglien, Shattenkirk, Niskanen, Barrie

    Goalies: Quick, Mason, Pavelec, Khudobin

    Prospects: Barkov, Eichel, Konecny

    Poulin long term, Bachman short term. Hackett I am less sure of - I know Goldman likes him a lot, but he has to beat out both Backstrom and Harding (as things stand right now).

    Thanks sir, that means a lot (especially from you).

    Of those forwards... I like Chiasson the most. Stransky is very appealing too, but he's probably a few years away. Chiasson is ccloser.

    I'd rank them:

    Chiasson
    Reilly Smith
    Stransky
    Austin Smith

    I like Stalock of the two goalies.

    open ended... depends how the other GM values your players.

    Duchene could do it, but that may be overpayment. How about D. Hamilton and a prospect like Morrow or Beaulieu?

    Ennis, for sure. Hodgson is simply too slow right now for top line responsibilities.

    I like Boston a lot from a defensive standpoint, that's primarily why.

    Not at all. He should score 20-25 once again.

    Great move. Fantastic.

    Halak - 30-35 wins, 7-10 shutouts. I think he wins out. Elliott is a threat, but not if Halak stays healthy.
