    Question Streaming for the stretch!

    Points-based league as noted in signature. I've slipped down to 2nd after a long run on top thanks to unpredictable goalie results since the All-Star break. It's likely, though not guaranteed, that I've locked up a finish in the top 2 ($) but I'd like to win if possible (duh; $$).

    Down the stretch, I feel like I might have to focus more on playing match-ups than keeping the best overall players. I have to keep 6 players for next year (one for each of the four skater positions and two wild cards) so I have to make a list of players that I can not dump down the stretch, hoping that they might make the keeper cut for next year. Games played are capped and I'm a little ahead on the wings, a little behind on D and G thanks to injuries. The guy in front is way ahead in all forward positions, a little behind in D/G and, most importantly, is suffering in net so I don't want to just lob goalies his way (his skaters are VERY strong, but he has this in net: Bobrovsky Miller Ward Pickard Condon Raanta Langhamer)

    So who can I absolutely not afford to drop?

    Stamkos Gaudreau Wheeler up front. Hornqvist as well?
    All of my D are miles beyond the available FAs so they're staying (plus I have games to make up)
    Price and Holtby will be kept. See above regarding stashing Gs (plus I have games to make up)

    *So is there anybody else I should definitely not let go of over the next month?*

    Oh and Malkin just hit the wire in case he is superior to my other candidates as a keeper (though I do not trust his durability for obvious reasons)

    Malkin will miss the next 6-8 weeks, basically remainder of season.
    With the Avs fighting for the last playoff spot in the west I would make sure to keep Varlamov and hope he carries Colorado.

    Varlamov's going to have to prove himself for me to carry him to the end of March. After the 26th, Colorado's schedule is @Nsh, @StL, Was, StL, @Nsh, @Dal, Ana. YIKES!!!
