Hey guys, I'm starting to second guess myself with regard to my forward keepers here. My league is having an expansion draft and I can only protect 7 forwards. From this list, who would you not protect if you were me? My league factors in annual NHL salary, and uses the following cats: G, A, Pts, PPP, Sog, GWG, Hits, Blks, +/-, PIM for skaters.
Neal, Kessel, Duchene are given, but I'm not 100% on the rest. Let me know which 3 you would cut?
Duchene - protected (stud)
Kessel - $10 mil next yr but must protect
Neal - protected (stud)
Desharnais - not a shooter but awesome contract going forward and plays 1st line
Pominville - goes to $6 mil but is 1st line and big shooter and goal scorer
Perron - another guy who shoots a lot and is goal heavy, still 25 and good contract for 2 more yrs
Moulson - a shooter (water down version) but becomes UFA with anticipated higher contract
Filppula - good stats this season but goes to $6 mil in 2yrs, not sure if I can trust him
D. Sedin - a shooter and racks up good PPP but goes to $7 mil at age 34 and declining stats?
H. Sedin - doesn't shoot but more reliable than Daniel, also $7 mil, could be cap casualty for roster
Who would your 7 salary keepers be in this goal heavy league?
