Need another set of eyes on my keeper team
Whelp, the rest of the people in my fantasy league finally decided to get serious about doing their research during the lockout, and so I'm finding that going to the Wire and picking up good players (Tarasenko, Conacher, etc) for secondary scoring punch is becoming more and more difficult.
Given the team in my signature, where would you improve things, and how would you feel about this team? I try to build to win every year, but also look into picking up at least 2 players every year who are young and may have a chance to make it into my 12-player keeper roster (this year these were Folgino and Schultz, picked up off the WW on the first day). Keep in mind that hits and blocks are both categories in this league, which may explain why some players are on there; Tyutin most notably - he was a WW pickup after Ian White went down.
Some noteable WW personalities are:
For matters of comparison, the other real "contenders" I'm looking at in this league have these rosters:
Team 1: John Tavares, David Krejci, James Neal, Dustin Brown, Dustin Byfuglien, Johan Franzen, Jordan Staal, Martin Erat, Mikael Granlund, Danny Briere, Brandon Sutter, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, Michael Ryder, Patrick Kane, Dan Boyle, Marek Zidlicky, Tobias Enstrom, Brooks Orpik, Martin Brodeur, Dan Ellis, Jonas Hiller
Team 2:Henrik Sedin, Henrik Zetterberg, Daniel Sedin, Taylor Hall, Ilya Kovalchuk, Jeff Skinner, Nail Yakupov, Jerome Iginla, Erik Cole. Alexandre Burrows, Michael Grabner, Mikhail Grabovski, Oliver Ekman-Larsson, Dennis Wideman, Johnny Boychuk, Ryan Whitney, Ryan Ellis, Carey Price, Corey Scheider, Devan Dubnyk
Team 3:Brad Richards, Ryan Getzlaf, Evander Kane, Derek Roy, Tomas Fleischmann, Teddy Purcell, Patric Hornqvist, Pavel Datsyuk, Chris Stewart, Loui Eriksson, Thomas Plekanec, Victor Hedman, Stephane Robidas, Dennis Seidenberg, Jack Johnson Jason Garrison, Mark Stuart, Jimmy Howard, Jaroslav Halak, Ondrej Pavelec
Team 4: Brayden Schenn, Logan Couture, Phil Kessel, Gabriel Landeskog, Alex Ovechkin, Joe Thornton, Patrick Marleau, Jakob Silfverberg, Corey Perry, Mike Richards, Cody Hodgson, Tyler Seguin, Alex Pietrangelo, Dougie Hamilton, Cam Fowler, Nick Leddy, Cory Conacher, Mike Smith, Kari Lehtonen, Sergei Bobrovsky
Would you stand pat, or thinking about making some serious moves? I almost certainly wouldn't do anything until at least the end of Week 2 regardless to give teams a chance to gell and settle down, but it's not like I can afford to give up a lot of matchups, what with the short season.
