    Default Backstrom vs. Eberle

    I might have chance to swap my Eberle for Backstrom (WAS). Stats in sig.
    Thanks!

    I would give Backstrom slight edge when comparing just the players but looking at your team, I'd be keeping Eberle. You don't need Backstrom when you already have Toews, Tavares and Stamkos as your keeper C's. You also have Backes and Benn as keepers and they should eventually lose their winger eligibilities.

    Thanks Carcillo some very valid points, I would rep you if I could. Every year its a tight race for FWs and every year I assume that guys like Backes will loose there eligibilities but yahoo i so darn inconsistent with this stuff, so I sort of forget that it actually could happend.

    Very good point, go for Eberle at the RW spot. Can't understand how you got all those studs at C ha.

    The talent level is so close that I think you have to look at their positions and your team's depth at each position, as other have pointed out, and make the right choice, which is Eberle.

    Looks like everyone is voting for keeping Eberle, and I totally agree, but I thought I'd chime in anyway.

    The RW eligibility puts him over the top, but even without it I'd think long and hard about this one. I know what Backstrom has done in the past, but I'm a big believer in Eberle becoming Edmonton's most dependable fantasy asset for the forseeable future. I don't think he and Backstrom are that far off, and I believe Eberle has 85-90 point upside.

    I'd keep Eberle.
    10-team Keeper. Everyone keeps 12 (last season - Bold) + 3 (players with less than 164 NHL games played -last season - Bold Italics). Points for G (2), A (2), PIM (.1), Hit (.1) SHP(1), W(4), SO(8) Must dress 4C, 4LW, 4RW, 6D, 1G

    C - Tavares, Spezza, Turris, Bozak, Zibanejad,
    LW -E. Kane, Pacioretty, Zetterberg, Zuccarello, Boedker
    RW - Wheeler,, Vrbata, Tarasenko, Silfverberg (IR), Niederreiter, Gagner, Nyquist, Hemsky
    D - Karlsson, Phaneuf, Edler, Green, Burns, Sekera Wisniewski
    G - Miller, Bobrovsky, Halak
