    Default Gaborik or Koivu for the remainder of the season?

    The league is a one year, points, +/- and PIMs and I'm thinking of dropping R. Smith for either M. Koivu or Gaborik. I'm leading right now but just barely ahead of three other teams all jockeying for 1st-4th.

    Koivu for me, too. He should be back by the time NHL play resumes, and he's got guys like Parise, Granlund, Poms, Suter around to supplement his offense. Solid outlook for Koivu, and he was actually really hot before going down with injury (1g, 10 points in last 9GP). I don't really like Gaborik at this point. Huge gamble.

    Koivu. He has some playmakers surrounding him and is less of an injury risk. He was also playing very well before he got injured.

    Koivu is the safe pick. Gaborik is high risk high reward pick. It all depends upon whether or not you need to hit a home run with Gaborik to keep the lead.

    Both are scheduled to return to playing this week but Koivu is who I would be looking at here.

    I would go Koivu as the safer pick. If you can afford to take a chance then Gabby, he can put up some big points, and if he gets traded to a say out

    I'd probably roll the dice on Gabby, although I tend to like to gamble a bit more on my waiver picks.

    I was leaning towards Koivu since gaborik is more of a risk and I'm not sure I need to take a risk at the moment, plus I drafted Koivu but dropped him after the injury. Thanks!
