    I'm mystified. His postseason suggests he can get back above 45 points. But I thought he was on the upswing and would get into the 60s last year. He's still on the Kopitar line so I think he bounces back

    You don't have hits or PIM so I would rather have Little. His offensive upside is slightly higher, and Kreider doesn't have those other cats to give him an edge here

    Thank you.
    Gudlevskis for sure. I think he'll surprise and we may even see him this year with an injury to Bishop

    But I would rather Neal right now and then trade him for Nyqvist and a pick because right now I still feel that Neal has more value to other fantasy owners.

    Well that makes 2 of us!
    I'm chalking it up to a fluke of a bad season and hope he can get back into that sweet 50 pt range (my league includes Hits so 50pts + 300 Hits is awesome)

    I have picks #10 and #20 for the first 2 rounds.
    Only 16 or 17 Dmen will be kept for the league. So, each year, half of the first two rounds selections are dmen.
    The way I figure things out:
    Best Forwards available - low 60's - vanRiemsdyk, Turris, O'Reilly, Pominville... - Probably still some 60 points left at pick #20.
    Best Dmen available - low 40's - Giordano, Goligoski, Carlson, Krug... - Probably no 40 points left at pick #20.
    Question:
    Would you target a 2nd dman with pick #10 (I'm really high on Goligoski) or take a 5th forward?
    We dress 9 F each week to only 4 D...
    What do you think is more valuable - a 60/65 points Forward or a 40/45 points dman?
    Before you even got to your question I had locked onto the name - Goligoski. That's the way to go here for sure.

    I still adhere to the Dobber Guide as the ultimate Manifesto but admittedly I've looked at other periodicals where they've started to downgrade RNH...enough to cause concern.
    Do I continue to fish with RNH or is now the time to cut bait for another noted above?
    Thx
    I'd be taking a long hard look at Nyquist or Kuznetsov...but in the end you have to go with the more proven guy. Even if he's hurt for 10 games and doesn't break out, you're still fairly safe at 55-60 points.

    Who do you like more for the future as I already know your thoughts for this year thanks to your guide?

    Christian Folin
    Chad Ruhwedel
    I don't think much of Ruhwedel, but I'm not really familiar with his blocked shots either. So with that in mind, take with a grain of salt, but I like Folin (risk/reward). You'll know what you have in a year and can replace him if it looks wrong.

    Geez, you don't mess around! And why is it McDavid or Eichel? There is a chance it would be Eichel? Without the guarantee of McDavid I'm taking the TT/JD/1st side of the offer.

    Here's the roster I finished with last year:

    F: Malkin, Seguin, Tavares, Pavelski, Kadri, Mi Granlund, Coyle, Scheifele, Maroon, Beleskey, King, Calvert
    D: Byfuglien, Shattenkirk, Giordano, Hedman, Barrie, Gardiner
    G: M Smith

    Bench:
    F: Santorelli, Z Smith, Glencross, Cleary, Flynn, Radulov
    D: Bartkowski, Bieksa
    G: Holtby, Greiss, Bryzgalov, Markstrom

    Current roster:
    F: Malkin, Tavares, Seguin, Okposo, Hornqvist, Kadri, Mi Granlund, Scheifele, Coyle, Maroon, Beleskey Calvert
    D: Byfuglien, Shattenkirk, Hedman, Barrie, Gardiner, Muzzin
    G: Holtby

    Bench:
    F: Raffl, Lee, M Martin, King, Radulov
    D: Gryba, Bartkowski
    G: J Peters

    I had to cut close to 15m in salary because I took on extra salary at the end of last year with Tavares + on IR, meaning there was no way I could keep everybody. My question is did I improve on my team from last year? If not did I at least maintain my chances of repeating?
    Your team looks better. Looks like Pavelski/Gio/Smith are out...Okposo/Muzzin in. You need to beef up the G depth but otherwise you look great
