    Question Am I crazy for thinking of dropping Benn?

    Currently in the midst of the playoffs (team in sig).

    Thinking of letting Benn go or possibly Couture for Marchand.

    Could really use the +/- but can't help but think this move may be crazy.

    Any help will be much appreciated and REP given

    That does sound crazy... but in a OYL, no guarantee Benn is going to pick it up in the last few weeks, and Marchand is playing crazy well right now (doesn't hurt that Boston has so much offense).

    I'd make the move. Not sure how Marchand is even available as a FA right now, even with 8 teams.

    I'd stand PAT with Benn.. Dallas has put together a few nice wins and they're going to lean on their leader down the stretch, Benn will deliver.

    I'm considering it too. What makes it harder for me is that Ray Whitney is a FA (no one in my league has noticed his PPG pace somehow). I'm having struggles deciding if I want Benn or Whitney for the rest of the season.

    In a roto would it be better to have C/LW of benn over whitney's LW?

    Doesn't really matter. My C are stacked but all of them only have single eligibility position-wise. For that reason, I play Benn as LW most of the time.
    I have a bit less games played for C than I do LW so I regard Benn and Whitney as both LW at the end of the day.

    Also, you have a really beast team, how did you get such good players in a 11-man league? You must be 1st place. Not only do you have forwards that are ridiculously good now, they'll be ridiculous good for a while. You literally have no forwards that are bad, and you have sick prospects like Kuznetsov.
    Who's the Michalek prospect though?

    In that case, I'd probably go with Whitney, but they're pretty close IMO.

    And thank man.. I make a ridiculous amounts of trades in my keeper league and re-built last year. Ha. BUT mostly reading up on this site has helped a lot! And I am in 1st by a wide margin.. And it's Milan, I guess less of a 'prospect' and more a 'farm team' we keep!
