    Default Help pick my Keepers

    From the team in my sig. I can keep 4 players. There are always lots of D available in the draft/FA throughout the season so not really wanting to keep them. and my goalies are nothing special I wouldn't be able to draft.

    I am thinking Kopitar, Nash, Ovie are the top 3 choices and then it really comes down to E.Kane, Skinner, Voracek.

    What 4 would you keep?

    At first glance I would have to go with Kane. I don't buy into Voracek just yet. Kane is a multicat stud, and he is only getting better. He gets my vote.

    I would keep Ovechkin, Kane, Voracek and Kopitar.

    You can say what you want about Voracek, but the talent is there and he's got a prime opportunity to put up some crooked numbers in Philly playing with Claude Giroux. Nash is what he is, he's good but I would rather have the young talent.

    Interesting... I am not opposed to keeping the others over Nash as I am only able to keep Nash this one last year but would be first time keeping the young guns (kane,voracek,skinner). I just haven't been able to watch any philly games this year and not sure about voracek given the depth in philly.

    kane seems like a solid choice given his all around style and the crazy amount of shots he's been taking.

    has anyone here watched voracek a lot this year?

    I like the OV/Kopitar/Voracek/Kane group as well. Nash is an injury risk and you only have him for one more year anyways. The other guy I was thinking about was OEL but with only 4 keepers doubt many D are being kept.

    I can see Philly bouncing back next year and Voracek staying with Giroux. He will only get better.

    Yeah D are rarely ever kept maybe 2-3 total between 12 teams. I've noticed since joining 3 years ago that no one puts much value in D as some teams only carry 2-3 throughout the year even though we have 4 slots. This makes for good selection in the free agency for the position.

    I am thinking I could draft OEL with a midpick again without issue.
