    Asking this kind of question for a one year league makes me have to ask what your league set up is? Cats and roster positions.....

    I like Voracek here. The others are tempting, but Eriksson has probably plateaued (at great numbers) and I just always find there are so many good D options available. Green is no longer elite.

    While I really like Voracek... depending on how many start and who you have I might take the gamble on Green... he finished quite well.

    Green is very tempting Dmen with his upside don't grow on trees but I have more confidence in Voracek. Riding shotgun with Giroux and Lecav this year could have its perks too. I take Voracek here

    I want to say Voracek here too...HOWEVER...ESP in a 1 year league...How long will Giroux be a non factor in the wake of this injury? If he misses any of the first part of the season...how long will it take before Voracek and Giroux find that ole chemistry.

    essentially...is Voracek able to float on his own until Giroux returns to form? (this is a bit of a selfish question...)

    How does your roster look at the wing position? Any other keepers there?

    In a vacuum I'm leaning towards Green. Starting 4 D vs. 6 total forwards means defense has value in your league and Green showed last year he can still be elite. He led all d-men in goals while only playing 35 games, he was at a 28 goal pace over 82 games.

    The "35 games" is the problem with Green though. Hopefully he can stay healthy, if he gives you even 70 games I feel like he'll be the most valuable of these 3.
    20 Team Dynasty (points per) - G (25, 50 for defense) A (25) PIM (3) PPP (15) SHP (25) OTG (15) GWG (25) HTr (50) SOW (75) HIT (1) BLK (2) W (50) SHO (100) OTL (10) GA (-15) SV (2) Use actual NHL salary

    Start 12 F, 6 D, 1G weekly

    F: Giroux, Tavares, P. Kane, Hornqvist, Gaudreau, Kucherov, Thornton, Zibanejad, Niederreiter, Hartnell, Neal, M. Martin, Raffl

    D: Green, Ekman-Larsson, Gudas, Borowiecki, Ristolainen, Manson

    G: Andersen, Markstrom, Darling

    Farm: Laine, Aho, Hurley, Gusev, Hartikainen, Stransky, Ferland, Labanc, Chase, Khaira, Tarasov, Petrov, Kosov, Kujawinski, Parayko, Slavin, Thrower, Kichton, Marchenko, Kasdorf, Williams

    The way we run our league is that everybody is allowed to keep 1 player they drafted from rounds 4-15, so I only get the 1 keeper and the rest of my team is blank.

    Keeper league I'd take Voracek, one year you gotta go with Green.

    He led the NHL in D goals last year and if he comes even close to that production, he's a better option than Vorts IMO. Who are your other three D for comparison? If you have Karlsson, Letang and Buff, then maybe a different story...

    The guy who I traded him to is a Bruins fan so I figured I could get a bit more out of him because of it
