    Default GAUDREAU is killing me. Really thinking of dropping him.

    This is just ROS. GAUDREAU Can't be a keeper. For league in Sig. Or does anyone think Gaudreau is going to go on a run with some points? Maybe worth it to drop and add someone like Steen or Dubinsky. Lots of Free agents are getting more more fantasy points then he is. He is just not adding anything of value for my team right now For playoffs. I'm currently in 1st with best record and most points. Playoffs start in 3 weeks. Thanks for any input.

    if you don't have faith why not try to deal him? at least try to get something rather than nothing in a drop scenario where he will be picked up immediately.

    He can't be a keeper so not sure trading him will get anything.

    Hold over Steen ot Dubinsky. For me that's not even a question.

    At least try to trade him. You could try a 2 for one and pickup Steen. He still has ppg potential down the stretch but it's been a tough year for his owners. I couldn't drop him but also glad I don't own him this year.

    There was a time earlier this year where there were tons of threads like this about Kuznetkov.
    Super star talent is super and hard to replace. I'd keep him, even if you feel you need to bench him for a while.

    I posted this exact same question a week or two ago. He's been bad this year, and doesn't count for peripherals. I'm pretty close to dropping him myself.

    Writer of the weekly Top 10 column.

    12-team Keeper pool, straight points for forwards & dmen. Goalies get: 2 points per win, 3 per shutout, 1 point per assist & 1 point per shootout loss.

    League champ in 2013 and 2015.

    Top 8 forwards, 5 dmen and 2 goalies count.

    We keep 15 players (any position) plus two rookies.

    Is it potentially too late to drop him? And by that I mean having a guy tick along will be nice but does it claw you back into the thick of things or do you need the boom potential of Gaudreau to do that? That's the question for me anyway, and that's as unlikely as we are to see that boom
    Experience is the teacher of all things.

    I think the potential to be burnt is too great - Meaning he goes on a tear just as the playoffs starts, and heaven forbid, your opponent owns him...

    I'm an owner too, its been disappointing, but the kid is special... I would put my money on him being better down the stretch...

    ha! Wanted to start a Gaudreau rant thread but said to myself, i'm sure there is one already! What I think people aren't understanding about your thread is you said he CAN"T be kept. If thats the case, kick his arsse to the curb. He's driving me nuts....you'd think there is no way a star can go this long being royally sh$t. Guess he's proving its possible. I'm benching his arse everytime he has less than 4 games in a week.

    If he can't be kept by other teams, then I don't see him having any trade value.

    If you drop Johnny, what are your limits on WW? Can you stream his spot throughout the playoffs?

    Gaudreau is killing me too. I can probably trade him + something else for Taylor Hall but Gaudreau is an amazing talent. He almost has Patrick Kane stick handling / moves. My gut tells me to hold on to Gaudreau but my I'm not sure I have enough patience.

    This is his last chance to stay on my team. This week he has 4 games. If he doesn't score some points this week he his getting the boot. He has been a huge disappointment this year. I drafted him in 2nd round could have had some really good players with that pick. Just hope I can hold down most points and best record. Then have nice playoff run.

    This guy just isn't waiver wire material. Period. You'll regret it if you do it. Put him on the bench until it turns around. Ride it out.

    The only way I drop him right now is if I can't keep him and he gets injured. Ask yourself how many guys in the league have the ability to get over 70 points in a season? Then ask yourself how many have actually done it recently while being under 25 years of age. Then go look it up.

    It's only for ROS. He can't be a keeper in my league. Playoff starts in 3 weeks for me and doesn't seem like he is going to be any help to me in playoffs.
