    Default Wheeler, Marchand, or Purcell?

    G/A = 1
    +/- = 0.5

    I'm very concerned about Purcell's possibly not being on Stamkos' line this season (let alone with St. Louis too), but Wheeler also seems like a slightly unproven entity - though this may just be from my never watching Winnipeg play. Marchand, finally, is probably my most disliked player in the league, which is maybe not the best reason not to take him, but he also maybe doesn't have the almost-elite upside of the first two...

    Wheeler for me, I don't think last year will be his best. I also hate Marchand.

    Looking first at offense - I'd choose Wheeler of the three, with Purcell being close behind. Marchand my least preferred offensively.

    BUT

    Looking at your format, Marchand should have the best +/- so last year their fantasy points were:

    Marchand 70
    Wheeler 68
    Purcell 69

    However, as +/- can be a bit unpredictable and I feel more comfortable with Wheeler and Purcell potentially increasing offensively, moreso than Marchand, I'd keep my first order as it stands.

    I'd go with Marchand.
    That Boston line of Marchand-Bergeron-Seguin is one of the best in the game... honestly, overall it is a top 10 NHL hockey line. I think they'll enjoy the same success, especially as Seguin matures.
