Rep for all who help! For team in sig. Busy Thursday schedule and need to sit 2 forwards in my championship match-up. Here is the score so far:
Me: 5 G, 10 A, +2, 14 PIM, 5 PPP, 0 SHP, 36 SOG, 32 HIT, 15 BLK
Him: 4 G, 2 A, -5, 0 PIM, 2 PPP, 0 SHP, 34 SOG, 17 HIT, 11 BLK
I am up big time in assists, PIM, hits (as always). I am fighting for goals, PPP, SOG.....blks are primarily defense and I should be fine there.
Normally I roll my best players out there, but in this case, 2 of my best players are primarily pass-first guys in Backstrom and Sedin. Should I consider sitting them for goal/SOG guys like Brown and Callahan? I would normally never do this, but in this case it kind of makes sense. Especially with the Rangers playing the weak Panthers. Here is my team, tell me which 2 forwards you sit:
Backes vs. Pho
Brown vs. Cls
Callahan vs. Fla
Sedin vs. Dal
Backstrom vs. Ott
Benn vs. Van
Pacioretty vs. TB
Semin vs. Wpg
Normally I would sit Callahan and Brown, but those are two of my biggest sog guys (one of my tightest cats) and likeliest goal scorers....this is tough. Would love any and all input and will dish out lots of rep...my championship aspirations could hinge on this decision!
