    First, thanks for doing that.

    Question 1: How do you see Eriksson future ? Can he be a 65-70 pts player with Boston ?

    Question 2: Will Kuemper be a starter next year or a 50/50 split time goalie ?

    Question 3: How do you see Victor Fasth future ?

    Awesome! Always love it when you open this up! Thanks!

    I was curious on your thoughts towards Colton Sceviour. He signed a 2 yr, 1 way deal with Dallas and I am wondering where you see him fitting in on that roster and the type of production we could see from a player like him.

    What would your play be in my league on keeping MSL? We count hits, and that hurts MSL's value a bit. So far I have him pegged as a keeper. Would you take a chance on Iginla (if he stays in boston or if he doesn't stay?) or Perron, instead?

    My tentative plan was to keep MSL, then draft Nichushkin early (he was dropped in our playoffs out of a desperation move by a GM gunning for the championship) with the intent of replacing MSL as a keeper entering 2015/16.

    1)Does Markstrom's stock improve in Vancouver this year? So far he just cycles (plays great in the AHL, called up to the bigs and struggles big time) How close are you to writing him off as a 1st round bust?

    2)WTF is up with Dustin Brown (27 pts this season!)? Does he bounce back to anything approaching fantasy value next year?

    For the next 3 years, who do you think is the best keeper option :

    Gaborik, Palat or Schwartz.

    Thanks in advance

    With Dan Ellis and his two-year deal out of Dallas and Thomas presumably heading out this summer, any chance that Christopher Nilstorp gets the backup gig? How do you see that playing out?

    Hey Dobber, thanks for doing this.

    I have 2 questions:

    1. ANA goalies seem to be fantasy gold.. what about next year? Sounds like Hiller is leaving, and if so, would it be a 50/50 split with Andersen/Gibson? or would you expect Andersen to get a majority?

    2. Should I be worried about E. Staal for next year? His PP took a big nose dive this year. I have the option of keeping E. Staal or R Johansen -- I think Staal has the upside (pts wise) but maybe you know something about Johansen that I don't. I'm really only interested in the next 2 years (I'm in a limited keeper and want to win now =) ).

    Cheers!

    Who should be my last 2 keepers? Right now I have Yakupov and Giordano pencilled in but I wonder if I should keep Voracek, Kronwall, Girardi, or Howard instead of 1 or both. I think I have a fairly good chance at winning next year and can't really afford another poor year by Yak.

    I am also unsure if Giordano can come close to what he did this year. What are your projections for Giordano?

    If you were drafting in a standard multi-cat league today and had to choose from these 3 prospect Dmen, who would you take 1st, 2nd and 3rd and what kind of upside do you see from them.

    Frank Corrado, Robert Hagg, or Xavier Oullett.

    Hey Dobber, love your site!

    Can you list 10 young guys who are playing or coming up in this years draft who will be elite playmakers?

    I have Thornton as my current playmaker but will need a replacement in the future when Thornton hangs up his skates!

    Cheers

    Dobber Would love to hear your thoughts on Evander Kane, who constantly tantalizes us with his talent and seems to under deliver if he remains a Winnipeg Jet (where he has seemingly fallen into the Claude Noels Doghouse) and if he is traded (where are likely destinations and how that affects him).

    I've just asked something around this trade in the forum but I'd like to ear your tought. IN a league that count 1 for G and A, 0,1 for SOG, 0,2 for PIM:

    I give Boedker+Kuznetsov (plus maybe a little piece) for his Ryan +Saad

    Do it or no? Would your answer be the same in 2 year?
