    I am also unsure if Giordano can come close to what he did this year. What are your projections for Giordano?
    Instead of Yakupov, keep Howard. That way, at the draft you can pretty much ignore goalies and focus on the other spots

    Instead of Edler, keep Kronwall

    You would be in a great spot for next year. Giordano can repeat what he just did - but he gets hurt a lot. So all you can do is hope he plays closer to 75 games than 60 games.

    Frank Corrado, Robert Hagg, or Xavier Oullett.
    I don't see much upside from Corrado. I would take Ouellett first - he could be on the team very soon, but production may take a few years (like Smith, Kronwall, etc)

    Cheers
    Thanks!

    Your question is pretty vague...since there are obvious ones like MacKinnon?

    Drouin is a prospect ready to go, and good for a ton of assists when he hits his prime
    Nugent-Hopkins will eventually be a 60-assist guy
    Kuznetsov has potential here
    Granlund will be an elite setup man for sure
    Other long shots to consider - the likes of Ennis, T.Johnson, Teravainen

    I don't think a trade will expedite things. I think he just needs time, always did. What would help the most is if he would stay healthy for 80 games. That would speed things along. But at this point I don't think he can be a 75-point player. But I think 65-70 is the target, say two or three years from now. And hope for 60 (and good healthy) for next year.

    Yes, do this trade. You get proven commodities back and give up little in the way of upside.

    My hunch is that he will be, but I haven't written him off.

    The GM has offered me
    MacKinnon, 2 first round picks next year (the two picks have a shot at being for McDavid) for Seguin, Subban, Kuznetsov.
    Thoughts? I'm high on MacKinnon and didn't really want to trade him away but the offer for Stamkos was too good to pass up IMO and I want him back. Albeit I'm buying into super hype right now.
    NO, because Subban is the MacKinnon of D. Your initial trade was a little steep a price to pay for Stamkos, too.

Can he be a player who scores over 60+ points? Also I understand the NJ factor possibly bringing down the point totals, so maybe an in NJD outside NJD point totals?

    Thanks
    Boucher was 18 months older than Stamkos when he did it. At 19, if you have any kind of offensive skill, it's expected that you score 50+ in the OHL. Plus, fourth round picks have to prove more to get the same hype that a first-overall pick gets.

    I think he can be a 60+ guy for sure. Upside maybe 70. Would depend on linemates and how quick he can adapt and establish a niche on a scoring line.

    However, with a 12 team league, I can usually find a solid 2nd goaltender in the draft so I tend to favor the extra fwd.

    Thoughts are appreciated
    First of all - love the avatar!

    That's a tough choice, but I'm guessing in a limited keeper like that you can draft one of these types of players very easily. What would be more difficult is drafting a goalie, so I would keep Rinne and RNH

    Also, can Varlamov repeat his dream season? Colorado could be the next chicago with all the young talents they have!

    Thanks for doing this!
    Yes to Varlamov - but the question is always his health. If he can start 65 games, he can win 40.

    Tarasenko could be an 80-point guy. But I think he gets hurt too much so I wonder if he'll ever get 70. No.1 thing I'd like to see next year is 80 games from him. If he can do that, he can get 60 easily. Then he can build on that.

    I'm in a keeper league that goes pretty deep. My team is a bit too young to win next year so I'm choosing the guys who I think will be best three years from now. It's points only with bonus points for defencemen goals, power play goals and short-handed goals.

    I need to protect 4 of 7 forwards - Ryan Strome, Sam Gagner, Teravainen, Kuznetsov, Kucherov, Silfverberg and Colin Wilson.

    I need to protect 3 of 5 defence - Ekman-Larson, Justin Schultz, Slava Voynov, TJ Brodie and Justin Faulk.

    So...who do you think I should protect?

    Thanks for doing this.
    I protect TT, Strome, Kuznetsov and Kucherov

    OEL, Schultz and Voynov

    Does it match Darren's?

    No way I see that coming. But I didn't see this coming either. Next year I'd predict him to miss 15+ games from groin injuries, and 50 points.
