    Default Keep Kopitar or Barzal

    I have to decide on Barzal or Kopitar for a final keeper. Last month Barzal was ranked ahead of Kopitar in Dobber's top 300 keeper skaters. Now Kopitar is ahead of Barzal. This is a league that counts FW, hits and +/- otherwise its Barzal no brainer Obviously Barzal has the more exciting skills but does Kopi's FW and +/- put him ahead of Barzal in a keeper. My other keepers are Tavares, Hall and Eichel. Hall and Eichel have negative +/-.

    Kopitar for next 1-2 years. Barzal for the longterm

    u'll need the FW based on your team.

    Sigh, with Tavares on the isles I go yound and exciting with Barzal. Worth the risk. Without Tavares, Barzal becomes centre of attention for all competition. LA is the stronger team. Kopitar just had a phenomenal season. Kovy incoming. Go with Kopitar here.

    Thanks, guys. I was thinking I could take a chance and draft O'Reilly for the FW early but you're probably right. Sometimes I get too clever and screw up.

    Kopitar for the next few seasons. He has a .9 points per game average over his career and fills your other categories well.

    It would pain me to let someone like Barzal go for nothing but you almost have to keep Kopitar in this situation.
