    Default Shaw dropped - is he an upgrade for my team?

    So Shaw was dropped the other day - he was pretty cold, but just got put onto the top line with Towes and Saad the other night and put up two goals. He's great for SOG and Hits in my league. Who should I drop to pick him up or stand firm?

    I'm thinking possibly Nyquist, but he's still doing well, but not sure how much longer he'll be productive. Not sure if Stempniak will get to play with Crosby or not, but I picked him up just in case. Last night he wasn't on Sid's line, but hoping he will be instead of Gibbons.

    What do you guys think? I need to act quick before he gets picked up, I think he just cleared waivers.

    Thanks!

    Only guy I would consider is Nyquist but I think it's worth giving him a couple more games to see how he does without Datsyuk. If you've got a desperate need for hits then make the move though.

    After holding him for the full extend of his cold streak, I dropped him, only to have him score two goals that night.

    He has since been picked up off of waivers.

    Do I regret the drop? no. he was cold as fxck and it was about time.

    Do I think he will go back to his cold streak? likely, unless he keeps his game up. He has had declining minutes up until I dropped him. He may get a few more looks because he had a good game, but will see if he keeps it up.

    I'd rather have nyquist, but if shaw plays like he did for the first part of the season again, then pick him up.

    Thanks guys, I will hold tight and see how both Nyquist and Shaw do in the next few games. I need to drop someone eventually to activate Price anyway.

    Well after that performance by Nyquist tonight I dont think I'll be dropping him any time soon LOL
