    Default Is Burns over Letang a no-brainer?

    I have Letang and am wondering if i should offer him and a sweetener for Burns in a points only non-keeper league. I have ghost bear as Letang's backup so not overly concerned about injury risk. I like Burns because he's still getting vast majority of pp time, whereas Letang sharing somewhat with Schultz. But Letang clearly has vastly better supporting cast.
    Non-keeper 11-team auction league with 5 active forwards, two D. Points only (G=1, A=1)

    F: McDavid, Kuznetzov, Tarasenko, Stone, Johanson (Sheary, Schmaltz on bench)
    D: Letang, Klingberg, Ghost Bear (start two D)


    2nd league: H2H non-keeper: G, A, SOG, STP, BLK, Goalie wins/save%,
    14-team league, 18-man rosters

    The world does not judge actions on their own merit, but on their chance results, and they consider that only those actions which are blessed with a happy outcome have been undertaken with sound advice and reason

    You don't need to make that deal. Letang's pace is very ccose to Burns over the last few years, and better this year. Letang's issues is injuries, and you have that covered fine. Realize the Penguins haven't been scoring as much as usual, either.

    What would you have done if someone offered you Burns for Letang pre-season? Do the same thing now. Yes, Burns for Letang everyday all day. I will be surprised if Letang is not injured before I finish this sentence...
