    Default Keep 2! Will rep.

    10 Teams, H2H
    G,A,+/-,PIM,PPG,PPP,SOG,HIT / W,GAA,SV%,SHO
    2C, 2LW, 2RW, 1Winger, 1Forward, 4D, 2G, 4Bench, 1IR

    Edit: No draft pick trades (unsure of order of draft - will be announced 30 mins prior to draft)


    I won this league last year thanks to alot of you guys and just found its keep 2 going into this year.

    My top 5:

    Giroux (With PPG/PPP does he have an edge?)
    Karlsson (4D spots, ppg/ppg/sog monster?)
    Rask (One of the best, do i keep him and not worry about finding goalies later?)

    Niemi (Wouldnt take him before Rask)
    Kopitar (Wouldnt take him before Giroux)
    Parise (Wouldnt take him before Giroux)

    Will rep everyone, thanks!

    You might as well erase those second 3. Every single person responding this will be picking 2 of those top 3 100%. That said, it sucks badly but I think that you have to let Rask go of those top 3. I bet it's very difficult to trade in a keep 2 but you should try. Those are 3 of the top 20 players pretty easily.

    I agree. Gotta keep Giroux and Karlsson. Way more good goalies available than elite forwards

    I think you have little choice but to keep Karlsson, he is simply elite, is anyone better? Then it gets a little tough, but I'm going Rask. Why, your Scoring see's your goaltending being extremely important. Goalies are a bit unpredictable, but can anyone say definatively that Rask could never be the number one goalie in the NHL this year? I don't think so, Rask is as good a bet as any for a Vezina.

    Depending on my pick, I could get Giroux back or something better - who knows.
    The other teams really dont have as tough a choice as I do and thats only because I picked Karlsson up off waivers last year before even knowing this was a keeper.

    With 20 players selected I think 1 of my 3 players goes 1st overall, unless Lundqvist or someone else elite is available.

    Keeping a D/G I like the fact that my next 4-5 picks could be forwards.

    It's tought to let Rask go but in a keep 2 you need to keep the best def in the NHL Karlsson and a top 5 foward Giroux...

    If every single team keeps an elite Goalie thats 10 gone, wouldnt keeping arguably the best goalie in the league be better? damn this is tough.

    Can you try to trade Giroux+Karlsson or Giroux+Rask or Karlsson+Rask for 1 of Crosby,Malkin,JT,Stamkos? I would probably do it for Hall as well so that one of you have Hall and whichever of your 3 you didn't trade as your 2 keepers.

    There are no trades and draft order isnt based on last years standings.
    Commish JUST renewed the league today and said ps. keep 2 and we will redraft lol
    edit: I guess I am just lucky I grabbed Karlsson last year hoping he would play in the final week

    Ya, Karlsson on waivers?? Take that to the bank. I still like Rask, the chances are the other elite goalies will also be protected and with 4 goalie scoring cats in this league, well, that's important. Tough one for sure .

    Rask goes top 10 in every single H2H league in yahoo - guaranteed.
    Giroux and Karlsson probably go top 15 with an edge to Giroux but I like having the best D in the world on my roster - so much C depth.

    I think it has to be Rask and Karlsson but still wanna hear thoughts!

    You won't know the draft order until 30 minutes before the draft, and you just found out it's a keep 2? That sounds like a real gong show...

    I'd probably keep Rask and Karlsson. But yeah, it's a real toss up between those top 3.
    Team 1
    12 teams, pts only. G: 2-W, 3-SO, 1-OTL.
    8F, 5D & 2G count, keep 15 + 2R

    F: Tarasenko, Galchenyuk, Kuznetsov, Lupul, Stepan, Purcell, MacKinnon, Drouin, Barkov, Domi
    D: M. Reilly, Hedman,Ehrhoff, S.Jones, Bogosian
    G: Rask, Bobrovsky, Markstrom

    Team 2
    11 teams, pts only (G: see above)
    12F, 6D & 2G count, keep 20
    Expansion: 2013

    F: Kuznetsov, Grigorenko, Coyle, Teravainen, J.Stall, Drouin, Tlusty, Nichushkin, Stepan, Gagner, Z.Kassian, Hartnell, Kreider, Parenteau, Tlusty, Hanzal
    D: Carlson, Brodin, Vatanen, A.Larsson
    G: Holtby, Lehner, Schneider

    I think I would keep. Karlsson #1 d then Rask top three goalie. I couldn't pass them up. Then redraft best forward in draft. Random draft could get lucky. That's what I would do. But not easy choice at all.
    12 team, H2H points, limited keepers
    allowed 6 keeper players(no keepers from rounds 1-4)
    keepers are k

    16 man roster plus 1 IR
    start 6 forwards,4 d, 2 goalies

    pts: G=3, A=2, DA=3, DG=5, +/-=1 GWG=1,OTG=2,OTA=1, SHOG=1, PPG=2, PPA=1, SHG=3, SHA=1, HT=3
    BLKS=.25, HITS=.25, MAJ=2

    Goalie pts: WINS=5, SAVES=.20, GA=-1, SO=3
    SHOG SAVE=.50, SHOL=2

    forwards: GIROUX(k),TARASENKO,HALL(k),
    JOHANSEN, R.SMITH, H.SEDIN
    d: OEL(k), EDLER, BYFUGLIEN(k) JOSI
    goalies :KHUDOBIN,MASON(k), RINNE(k)
    (k)=keeper
    bench: DROUIN, KREIDER
    NICHUSHKIN, SIMMONDS
    IR:SCHEIFELE

    Default Help!

    I just got the 2nd overall pick in the redraft (2 keepers x 10 teams).

    Depending on who is available I could get one of Karlsson/Giroux/Rask back on my team.

    Subban is going back into the draft....

    Would you keep Giroux/Rask and then hope that Karlsson is still around, backup plan subban?
