Having a tough time figuring out what to do with the final 2 keepers spots in a 10-team, points-only, keep 6 league. G and A count for 1 point each, wins are 2 pts and shutouts are an additional 3 pts. Easy top 4 keepers are JT, Hall, Benn, Subban. After that I need to choose from:
Could also think about OEL, Hedman or Price if I go with another non-forward. I’ve tried kicking tires on guys like Voracek who I feel are underrated but having no luck so far (although I was offered Galchenyuk for a middling draft pick – something else to consider.) I did have a sweetheart deal on the table from another GM to get Duchene for my Ryan/Yak but he pulled it, very unfortunately for me. I feel I have a very strong top 4 and decent options for the final 2 keepers and am definitely in a position to win this year with smart drafting.
According to the guide, Patch and Vrbata would be the way to go, although Price projects as the 2nd best goalie in the league. I could maybe go with OEL/Hedman to have 2 top D and concentrate on going with all forwards in the early draft and a late flier on a goalie like Lethonen or someone like that who will fall to the bottom of the draft. What would you guys go with in this situation?
We are also expanding by 2 teams this year as well and I should be able to sell Ryan, Yak and Barkov for decent draft picks if I can convince one of them to just grab as many young guys/prospects as they can to compete in a few years.
