    Default Choosing Keepers

    Shallow 8 team, 17 roster league. Heading into 2nd year of a 3 year keeper league. Standard Yahoo cats plus HIT + BLK. 2C, 2LW, 2RW, 4D, 1UTIL, 2G, 4BN.
    Roster is as follows (players in bold are definite keepers):
    C: Backstrom, Getzlaf, Monahan, Giroux
    LW: Hoffman, Schwartz, Steen
    RW: Perry, Ma Stone, Gallagher
    D: Karlsson, Doughty, OEL, E Johnson, Borowiecki
    G: Holtby, Rinne
    Doughty and OEL are both keeper worthy and there is a huge demand for Dmen in my league. I can potentially trade OEL for a top 10-15 forward (Seguin, Eichel range) so I'd be left with either one of them and Doughty as my last 2 keepers. Or are any of Monahan/Giroux/Hoffman worth keeping over Doughty?
    Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

    Is FOW one of your "standard Yahoo cats:"? Not everyone plays yahoo so not everyone knows what "standard Yahoo cats" are.

    Thank you.

    Maybe I am missing something, but in a 8 team league that has hits and blocks, why are D in such high demand? Surely to god there has to be plenty to go around in a league that small. Either way, if you can turn OEL or Doughty into Seguin, I'd do that in a heartbeat.

    So the guys in my league are all friends and we've been having open discussion about setting our keepers for the year and the consensus is many of them are lacking 2 elite Dmen (or even 1 for that matter). Guy with Seguin has a plethora of forward but only Carlson on D
