    Default Is Kulikov still worthy of a limited keeper?

    (1st team in sig)

    Its coming down to the wire in my current matchup, but just in case I'm thinking about picking up PMB and dropping Kulikov since all he's good for is hits right now. The other manager that will be in the finals just snagged Seto so I figured I'd counter by picking up his linemate (?). There are others guys I'd prefer to drop, but either they help in other categories, have some trade value for late picks or I invested a pick to acquire them (Briere...such a fail).

    Think Kulikov will get better in the future?

    Yeah he definitely is - young defensemen have ups and downs early on in their careers.

    Then between Wiercioch and Clitsome, who would you drop for next week? Wiercioch has slowed down and doesn't get much hits/blocks. Clitsome seems to have caught a little flame.

    Can't disagree with Angus. I'd keep Kulikov over Schenn, but I don't see anyone else that I'd drop to keep him.

    I find Kulikov as a high risk, high reward type of defenceman. He hasnt been able to stay healthy early in his career (the risk) but if he can ever find the magic health potion, he is definitely worthy (the reward).

    Kulikov will get better but he also appears to be made out of porcelain. Super upside but I question his ability to stay healthy. I def wouldn't keep him over the other players you have bolded as keepers though.
