    Default Benn Replacement: Berglund or Stepan

    I drafted Berglund as my bench C and unfortunately had to put him to use earlier than I had hoped due to the disappearance of Jamie Benn. Just looking over the waiver wire to assess alternatives, Stepan seems the most appealing. Based on Dobber's projections, Berglund comes out ahead with my scoring system. However, I think Berglund is getting 3rd line minutes this year and 2nd PP, so I am not sure if that was factored into the projections. Is Stepan the better option here? (hopefully this is a really short term problem!!)
    Some other options at C on the WW are:

    Desharnais
    Bolland
    Bozak
    10-team Limited Keeper League (Keep 10), Fantasy Points
    G(3), A(2.5), +/-(0.5), PIM(0.1), SHG(1), SHA(1), GWG(0.5), SOG(0.2), HIT(0.1), BLK(0.1); W(3), GA(-1), SV(0.2), SO(3), OTL(1)
    C: Backstrom, Benn, Mackinnon
    LW: Moulson, Pacioretty, Skinner
    RW: St. Louis, Wheeler, Brouwer
    D: Phaneuf, Ekman-Larsson, Goligoski, J. Johnson, Demers
    G: Varlamov, Rinne
    Bench: Johansson, Killorn, Chiasson, Faulk, Gudas, Yakupov
    IR:Price, Dupuis

    No question. Stepan is the best option out of all the options you have listed. Berglund definitely has some upside, but it looks like Stepan will have more opportunity to have a better year. If he continues to get 1st PP time, which he should, it will end up being a one-sided comparison. That PP unit is gonna be ridiculous before it's all said and done.

    Desharnais is intiguing, but I'd still rather have Stepan.

    Thanks, I think I agree.

    Anyone else, since I have 15 minutes?

    Well that didn't quite work out as planned!

    At least Benn is back so I can put this ill-fated experiment behind me.
