    Default Need to make a couple of more drops ahead of the draft

    Hi all,
    Drafting this Sunday. I managed to get my team under the cap (set at 118 million), but only just under. I have room on my farm team to make one pick at the draft, but we get 3 rounds, so I would like to use them. Trouble is that I need to drop at least one player to make this happen. Also, Ryan Ellis will go on the IR, but I can't move him until the season actually starts, so I need to promote someone from my farm. I will be moving up Montour, but doing that slightly puts me over the cap. So, in looking at my players, thinking about dropping the following:

    Tobias Rieder (after looking at several sources for projections, he averages out to 36 points)
    Patrick Eaves (averages out to 40 points, and most sources say expect a drop from last season)

    doing these moves will save me about 5.4 million, allowing me to move up another player along with Montour like Strome, Chabot, Vrana, White, or Sanheim.

    I know Ekblad will probably never live up to his massive contract in a points only league, but I will hang on to him in the hopes of trading. Do you guys think I should drop anyone else? Does anyone know how Vecchione projects? I have to keep him on my main roster unfortunately as he doesn't qualify for our farm system so he will count against my cap (even though it is small).

    Thanks for any advice.

    I would much rather keep Eaves than Ekblad. Eaves has a nice contract which is the opposite of what Ekblad has.

    No one is trading for Ekblad's contract. I agree with Jouko.

    Ekblad is un-rosterable in my leauge. Salary leagues all have different parameters to work within, but if its anything like my, he has literally no value, its gone.

    If you can't trade Ekblad for a cheaper D, then the drop would open $$ and give you the option of dropping Hartnell, who I feel is the weakest (least upside) on your team. Both Reider and Eaves should produce more than Hartnell and allow to move up Montour and Strome
