    Question Keepers...moving Price?

    See Sig for league info. Need to keep only 6 players heading into the season with only restrictions being at least one per skater position.
    If keeping pieces I already own, then:
    Price and Holtby are no-brainers
    the D decision is really tough (Carlson vs. OEL vs. Byfuglien and maybe considering Weber too but probably not)
    Wheeler or MacK at RW (although do I dare keep Byfuglien as my RW?)
    Stamkos as my C (although MacK could count as a C)
    Gaudreau has to be my best LW.

    A) Is there anyone I should be considering a keeper that I'm not?
    B) From among the potential keepers I've ID'd, what's the best configuration?
    C) What if I keep Holtby and Schneider and try to move Price? Which position would I target to upgrade and could I possibly upgrade it enough to justify the drop-off from Price to Schneider? (Or Price to one of the other fringe keepers on my roster)

    Happy off-season to everyone.

    I like BB's take. I might tale Buff over MacK though.

    8 teams and I'm drafting 7th. There might be a chance that both Buff & MacK are still on the board at 7...maybe slightly higher for MacK given what I know of my league mates.

    Also this could all go to crap like it did last year when Yahoo! changed their positional availability at the start of the season, forcing my hand on Stamkos over Kopitar. Losing move so far

    I take Wheeler over Mack... I don't disregard Mack bouncing back this year, but Wheeler's got legit skill around him this year. and if you can grab Mack on around 7th/10th... all the better.

    Regarding OEL, the one thing that bugs me about him in this league is that plus/minus counts. This costs him 5 points against Buff and almost 10 against Carlson.
    Over the last three seasons, in terms of fantasy points per game played, they stack up as follows (1516/1415/1314):
    Buff 1.08 / 1.07 / 0.97
    Weber 1.03 / 1.07 / 1.13
    Carlson 1.13 / 1.07 / 0.73
    OEL 0.99 / 0.71 / 0.79

    Is OEL really that much of a slam dunk over *any* of the other three? Is this HIS YEAR?

    Thanks for the input!

    Going against the grain:

    Gaudreau
    Stamkos
    Byfuglien
    OEL
    Holtby
    Schneider

    To me, Price's injury recovery is in question, which means his elite status is in question. Given that, I'd keep Schneider. I'd keep Byfuglien at RW, since you have the ability to use him at defense, which increases his value a lot.

    I think the bet on Ekman-larsson is that his team is improving, which should raise plus-minus. He also doesn't miss games like Carlson, but keeping Carlson would be a fine option as well.

    You might be able to do something like Price/MacKinnon for a super-stud somewhere to upgrade your keepers.
