    I would add O'Rielly for your open roster spot.

    I'd also add Oshie but I'm not sure who I would drop, maybe hemsky.

    Is there a list of available Dmen? I'd prefer to carry a 4th D, as you'll get more use out of him than another F. As for other adds, I would consider ROR/Palat for Neal's slot - provided this IS a one year league we're talking about. I'd be confident dropping him for a legit option like ROR or Palat at this point.

    Yes, this is a one year league. I know it's just a guess, but is it worth taking the chance and dropping Neal now instead of just hanging on? You seem confident. I have a bye next week, and then the semi's, so all is on the line

    I like ROR and Palat as well! Palat has really caught my eye lately on Tampa's 1st PP.

    Available D Men include:

    EJ
    Carlson
    Goligoski
    Wisniewski
    Maatta

    Looking at my schedule for the semi's there is not a jam packed day where my fourth D spot would make a full roster...I have room and mobility to slot any player/position in.

    What do you think?

    If D is same as F, then you need to add Elias and drop Semin. If you have to fill the 4 D spot, then add Maatta.

    Thanks Dobber. During the week of my semi's (March 24-30) Elias only plays two games. Do you think he's worth the add over the others with 3 and 4 games?

    No way, if he only plays two games I wouldnt go for him. Unless you have enough moves per week, then check the schedule. If Elias plays both games in the beginning of the week, play him then drop him and pick up another player for the rest of the week I did that last year, I mapped out the playoff week with all my players and figured out who I can drop the quickest and replace with a FA for effective streaming.

    Exactly what I was thinking. Elias plays towards the end of the week and I could grab Soderberg or MacArthur (Who both have 4 games), Stemniak or Jokinen for the last day of the week.

    I was looking at ROR, Oshie and Palat or possible J. Staal...I like the scoring, powerplay and hits that these players bring (except ROR)...all have three. And all have nice point totals lately.

    Thoughts?

    Add EJ / Maatta as your 4D, Palat or ROR for Neal / Semin.

    Thanks guys! I'll be making the moves tonight. Can I ask, why drop Semin? He's been great lately, much more effective than Nash and Neal over the past few weeks, though Neal was likely foggy-minded. In fact Semin is top 20 in my league over the past month. Is it the lack of Hits?

    I gotta agree with you here, I'm dumbfounded by the hate on Semin. He's been excellent as of late.

    Do not even consider dropping him

    With the ice time Palat is getting, do you think he keeps up his scoring pace? I see he's been a PPG player since January, which bodes well, just want to see what everyone else thinks.

    ROR gets lots of PPP (8 over the last month), do you think he keeps rolling?
