    Default Expansion help

    Hey guys, our league is expanding from 11 to 12 teams and I'm looking for advise on who I should protect. It's for the league in m sig. I'm allowed to protect 7 fwds, 2 Dmen and 1 goalie. The remaining players on my team then get split into 2 lists and the expansion team can pick 1 player from each list. My top 6 forwards are obvious in Eichel, Malkin, Backstrom, Seguin, Monahan, and Stone. On defense I'll protect Hedman and Klingberg leaving Josi exposed. Who should be my 7th forward to protect between Guentzel, Hoffman or Atkinson? Thanks in advance!

    7th forward.... thats a tough one... If I were you I would trade Josi for a forward that is better than those three mentioned. Someone needs a better D to protect what they have and would probably take Josi for a forward. You could also ride the playoff hype of Guntzel and offer Guentzel and Josi for a better forward!

    But to answer your question as is... I would have to keep Guentzel... the playoffs he had should at the very least increase his trade value heading into the season.

    I was trying to do just that before the expansion was announced due to our 12 player keeper list, but since the announcement of the expansion a trade freeze has been implemented until after the new team is created.

    Guentzel is who I'm leaning towards though.

    Given the trade freeze (kind of a sucky job by your commissioner springing that on you guys, by the way) I'd also go Guentzel.
    10 team Head-to-head true dynasty. Roster 33, draft 2, cut down before season. Start 1 G, 1-2 backup G's, 6 D, 12 F arranged in 4 lines of 3. Only categories that matter are Goals, Assists, Save% with a shutout bonus. Having NHL teammates helps.

    G: F Andersen
    Backup G: Holtby
    D: Gardiner, M Reilly, Letang, Klingberg, Gostisbehere, Carlson
    F1: Voracek, Giroux, Couturier
    F2: Wheeler, Schiefele, Tavares
    F3: Benn, Seguin, MacKinnon
    F4: Stamkos, Point, JT Miller

    Bench:
    G: (none)
    D: Ekman-Larsson, Werenski, Orlov
    F: Pavelski, Bailey, Guentzel, Sprong, Killorn, Bjorkstrand, Tuch, Labanc, Donato, Necas

    Reserve:
    Datsyuk
