Can anyone confirm that he is being moved to F next season? Will he still be used at the point on PP?
In my league he is a beast as a D-man. Our top 10 players from FHG in my league are:
1 Sidney Crosby
2 Jamie Benn
3 Alex Ovechkin
4 Claude Giroux
5 Dustin Byfuglien 8th
6 David Backes 10th (traded him for Quick late in the season)
7 Erik Karlsson
8 Nicklas Backstrom 6th
9 Joe Pavelski
10 Brandon Dubinsky 20th
I have a very balanced team of multi-cat studs and solid goal tending. I picked these guys in later rounds and locked up goal tending early on.
As you can see Backstrom and Byfuglien alone were PP studs for me. I don't know what to think of him as a F? Lower SOG, Hits, and maybe PPP?
Is he a trade high candidate?
Will I lose value on him playing F all year?
I could try to trade for picks/players and upgrade to a better F keeper than him I guess. Maybe I should just wait 5 months and think about it them, lol!!!
My keepers as of right now are:
1 N. Mackinnan
2 Nicklas Backstrom
3 Dustin Byfuglien
4 P.K. Subban
5 J. Quick
6 Tuuka Raask
We keep six, its a 8 team Yahoo Roto. I finished 2nd and it could have went my way with just a few tweaks ( very few tweaks in fact)
Thank you for looking,
