    Default Keep #2 overall or trade it?

    Hey guys, I'm in a points only keeper league. I'm in rebuild mode. I know Eckblad is probably going first over all.

    My question is , should I trade my #2 pick for John Gibson seeing that I need a starting goalie? Is he worth to acquire over the likes of Sam Reinhardt, Bennet, draisaitl etc....

    Let me know, all opinions appreciated!



    My team is:

    Grigorenko
    Etem
    Beau Bennet
    Brayden Schenn
    Huberdeau
    Spooner
    Sucker
    Jaden Schwartz

    First off, I will be very surprised if Ekblad actually goes 1st overall in a fantasy draft. The actual one yes, but rarely do D go high on most fantasy draft.

    Second, you say you need a starting goalie but there's no guarantee that Gibson gives you that right away.

    Third, what kind of league are you in? You are barely icing a legitimate fantasy hockey team, unless your league rewards points for players in the minor leagues. Yes I realize you are rebuilding but holy crap!

    One final point, I am not familiar with any one in fantasy hockey named sucker.

    Long and short of it, if you can land Gibson for the 2nd overall pick, I would make that trade without hesitation. He's an upgrade to your minor league team between the pipes to Markstrom. How you didn't manage to get the 1st overall pick with a team like that is beyond me. I'd hate to think theres a team in your league that is weaker then that last year.

    I'm in a points only keeper league and im in a full rebuild mode.

    Only goals, assists, goalie wins are recorded.

    My team lost the draft lottery pick even though I had the most balls in the lottery.

    Anyways, I'm asking if Gibson is a better choice then the top 5 in this years draft. I understand he might not start, but that's fine as I'm gunning for McDavid.

    Yeah, get Gibson if you can. He's more valuable than Bennett/Reinhart imo.

    It would be nice to know your league scoring. Agree with Axeman, your team is a work in progress.
    Take Gibson, and cross your fingers that you win your draft lottery next year.

    League scoring is you dress 6 forwards and 3 defensemen. You assign a goal man and an assist man. A goal = 2 points and an assist = 2 for those money men. The rest are just single points for goals and assists

    Goalies get 2 points for a win and 7 for shutout.

    Its a points only format.

    I am gunning for McDavid next year, and clearly from the look of my team I will have a high chance of getting him.

    If I acquire Gibson, he MAY put up points for me, which right now, I don't need since I'm going for Mcdavid.....

    Take Gibson if you can. I'd even add something to the 2nd overall pick to get him.

    So basically, you're intentionally tanking for McDavid.

    Well no, I'll be acquiring the likes of someone like Cam Ward for cheap to be my goalie so I am not intentionally tanking. But from the looks of my team I don't see them posting major points next year
