    Default Keep 4: Help Needed!

    For the team and league description in my signature, who do you think I should keep? It's a keep 4 league. 4 out of 10 categories are goalie categories.

    It's going to go Crosby (C), Malkin (C,RW), Karlsson (D)...then the fourth is who?

    I am stumped. My goalies have been crap this year, my offense is tops in the league. The end result is 5th of 12 teams so far.

    Nathan MacKinnon? Evander Kane? Anze Kopitar? Cory Schneider? Thank you for your help.

    For me it depends on how your draft works. If not a lot of teams will be protecting goalies and you will be able to snag a solid one at the draft, then I would cut bait with what you've got in goal. I might consider keeping MacKinnon, personally, because he looks to be right on trajectory. If only 48 players are protected, then there should be plenty of 2nd and 3rd tier options like Kane and Schneider to be had. If you have less of a long view in mind, I'd stick with Kopitar.

    First off, I love your 1st place prize! Luckily my wife doesnt read these forums so I can say, I'd love to win that prize!

    As far as your keeper delimma goes, for me it comes down to Kopitar or MacKinnon. I can't see many goalies getting kept in a keep 4 so you should have plenty of opportunities to replenish that. I'd probably keep MacKinnon as Kopitar seems to be a guy you can grab as a redraft in a round or two, while MacKinnon's hype means he wouldnt last as long.

    MacKinnon for me. It doesnt hurt that he has dual position eligibility as well.

    mac or Schneider, all depends if others keep goalies or not. i have 2 keeper centers and it makes drafting a little harder. Center is a really deep position.

    You gotta keep Mac, he's going to be ridiculous. He's also dual eligible.

    I'd keep MacKinnon too, Too good to let him go free.

    You might not be the only one who doesnt keep a goalie so with 12 teams in your league you might be able to get a great goalie in next draft ( R. Miller, J. Howard, Varlamov, etc.....)

    Focus on keeping MacKinnon (you will kick yourself in the butt if not) and then try to land a goalie early in the draft. As others have said, with 12 teams and just 4 keepers, there is bound to be quality goalies available early on (maybe equal or better to Schneider!)

    +1 for the MacKinnon camp. Huge upside, and the dual position eligibility is a bonus. Schneider is OK and likely won't have any challenge for the #1 position next year, but he is a good step below the top tier in goal, and you will likely be able to redraft someone comparable.
