    I've narrowed it down to this. My first instinct is to cut Spezza. But with FW as a category, he is likely worth keeping.

    With BS as a category, I'd argue for dropping Shattenkirk. Use the end of the re-draft to get guys dmen with pims and bs.... use your forwards for other categories.

    Considering it is a 10 team league, I'd hate to keep all three of those tenders, but I can't imagine you dropping one. I'd aggressively try to move one with a forward for an upgraded forward. Of your 3 goalies, I think you could get a very nice return on any of them.

    C- Crosby, Spezza,
    LW- Ovechkin
    RW- C.Giroux, Yakupov
    D- Shattenkirk
    G- Miller, Price, Schneider

    Presuming to start 2 Goalies....Id go this direction and then your defence.
    Some may want to go 2 Goalies & grab Koivu but Id still go with 3G(These ones are too good not to keep). If need be you can grab abother goalie in draFT and trade one of your big3.

    oops thats 10 u can only keep 8. Time to rethink.

    Okay Im dropping Green and Price. But b4 u do I too would try to upgrade for another stud. Trade Price with something for an upgrade.

    Personally I wouldnt keep any D. You can easily re-draft Dmen. Same can be said for Centres. Plenty of quality centres out there. It's harder to find quality wingers and goalies so I would be keeping what you have there, for the most part.

    Agree with Axe here. I'm keeping no d here. Those are three stud goalies there, keep them all. Ryan, Shatty and Green were on the bubble for me.
    Pretty solid 8 there. Good luck.
    Agree with Artic here too, try to move one of the goalies + player B for an elite forward/winger.

    what winger would you target? and what goaltender would you prefer to move? i was thinking i might target J.Neal but i feel like a Ryan/spezza + insert goalie for Neal may be overpaying. another option is the possibility of getting Tavares. do you think he would be a better option then spezza?

    Either JT or Neal is a very nice upgrade if you can land one of them. Spez/Ryan + goalie is an HUGE overpayment IMO for Neal. Little overboard there.

    You could try Price + Ryan for JT and see if that works. Or Schneider + tier II player for Neal. I think a Schneider/Spez for Neal deal would be an overpayment here. I'd put all of your eggs in one basket and go after Tavares here. Soon to be elite and difficult to aquire in most leagues. I think you'll garner more interest from another GM if you bait out one of Price or Miller here. More proven and better track record. Let us know what you have planned..

    I've bolded my 8

    C- Crosby, Spezza, M.Koivu, Ott
    LW- Ovechkin, Bobby Ryan, Clowe, Van Riemsdyk
    RW- C.Giroux, Yakupov, Horton
    D- Green, Markov, Shattenkirk, Goligoski
    G- Miller, Price, Schneider,


    I think you have the pieces here to go after John Tavares, and if you land him you should be golden for years to come.

    Geez that's a stacked roster.

    I would go with:

    C- Crosby, Spezz
    LW- Ovechkin, Bobby Ryan
    RW- C.Giroux, Yakupov
    D-
    G- Miller, Price

    I also agree with attempting to move schnieder for an upgrade but in this instance i would try and move him for a high draft pick/s to firm up my victory next season. If you trade for talent you will have to overpay in a limited keeper 10 team league which is fine but you may have more success getting draft upgrades than player upgrades.

    For sure take this 7, if not traded.
    C- Crosby
    LW- Ovechkin, Bobby Ryan
    RW- C.Giroux, Yakupov
    D-
    G- Miller, Price

    Comes down to Spezza and Schneider for last keeper spot. I think I would go with Schneider. I love to have a bench goalie, and to have such a good one in Schneider would be wonderful. Also takes away needing to draft a goalie in the draft, allowing you to take the better skaters availible.

    You have an awesome team, that is a sure favourite. I wouldn't be opposed to sending good pieces to a team for an improvement, as I don't care how much better I make someone else's team, so long as it makes mine better.

    so it looks like schnieder, spezza and ryan are on the block. I'm suprised no one said yakupov considering he's not proven yet....im going to send out some feelers to see what it would take to get JT or Neal..maybe if im lucky ill get both.

    here are the two owners teams..any trade suggestions?

    Team stamkos:

    C- Stamkos, Tavares, Kopitar, Kesler
    LW - Kovalchuk, Vanek, Brown, Dupuis, Versteeg
    RW- Pominville, Alfredsson, Wheeler
    D- Del zotto, Yandle, Carle
    G - Rask, Kipper, Varlamov

    (he won last year but is always willing to talk trade, ive made a few trades with him in the past. but he never keeps a defenceman so green wouldnt interest him. his one weakness is he's a sens fan, so spezza would intirgue him and be overvalued)

    Team Nash:

    C- H sedin, Marleau, Granlund
    LW - Neal,Nash, Ladd, Fleischmann
    RW -Hossa, Gaborik, Erat, Stafford
    D- Poetrangelo, Edler, Burns, Myers
    G- bryzgalov, Fleury, Pavelec

    (middle of the pack team last two years. Also made trades with him in the past. but because i got OV from him for hossa, marleau and a mid round draft pick. i know ill have to over pay to get a deal done.)
    10 Team H2H Keeper League.(Keep 8) G, A, PPP, PIM, +/-, FW, BS, W, SHO, GAA, SV's

    C- Crosby, Spezza, M.Koivu, Ott
    LW- Ovechkin, Bobby Ryan, Clowe, Van Riemsdyk
    RW- C.Giroux, Yakupov, Horton
    D- Green, Markov, Shattenkirk, Goligoski
    G- Miller, Price, Schneider,

    I would try to work a deal involving your Spezza for his Tavares. He's got some potential holes to fill with guys like Kesler and Dupuis.
