Under-rated Studs In Multicat Leagues
I am in the first season of a h2h multi-cat keeper league with the following cats: G, A, PPP, SOG, +/-, hits, PIM, shp, bs.
Despite the cats that reward gritty defensive play, multi-cat guys get no respect. I was able to snag guys like Backes, Brown, Callahan, Lucic much later in the draft than I should have. Based on the numbers from HPG, they are all top 25 players, with Backes being the 3rd ranked skater last season based on my league's cats. He only finished behind Malkin and Hartnell! Despite that, I got him the in third round and then got Callahan, Lucic, Brown in rounds 8+.
My team is built around multi-cat contributers and strong goaltending (Lundqvist, Ward, Hiller), and I am looking to add a little offense. Everyone in my league is blinded by the sexy stats and I cant even get a manager to trade me eberle (ranked 160th overall last season) for Backes. So frustrating.....I'm offering to overpay for guys like Eberle, TAvares, etc.....offensive studs that only help in a few cats.
Anyone have any advice for how to get a deal done? Or are my fellow managers just fools that will never see the light?.....until I crush them with my multi-cat domination that is.....
