    Default Silfverberg or Brunner for Abdelkader?

    I think Abdelkader is a big sleeper this year that can produce quietly beside Datsyuk and Zetterberg.
    Not to mention, he's a HITS monster, a stat that I could definitely look to build on in my team. I don't have many "grit" guys aka the Backeses, E. Kanes and Lucics of the world.

    Only problem:
    1. I already have Zetterberg. I like to diversify among teams but I guess this isn't a big problem
    2. Who do I drop between Silfverberg and Brunner? They're both late round picks, Brunner was actually a FA pickup. Silfverberg I thought had potential to do pretty well this year, but when I think about it, he's just as unlikely as any rookie like Hertl or Nischuskin to produce at a solid clip.

    Thoughts? League cats & current roster in my sig.

    1. i wouldnt be too worried about having another redwing in Abdelkader. and if hits are a need its probably a decent move.
