    Default Is it safe to go for B.Tkachuck?

    Meier was my last pic and he is doing ok.
    Tkachuck on the other hand is piling points, SOG, Hits, so I am tempted to add him.
    Lee is still available, but the Ottawa is looking way better than Islanders.

    So, I see Tkachuck could reach at least 50ish point mark with tons of peripherals.
    What do you guys think about Tkachuck?
    Can he be the best option in my league setup?

    He could be an option but no one I would drop for him at the moment.

    If you do risk it, I would take Tkachuck for Meier. ( he seems the replica of his Big Bro to me)

    But I think he'll be slightly under 50 this year but More Hits,PIM for sure

    It's a roll of the dice for sure but I'd say there's a fair chance Tkachuk and Meier are equal or close offensively with Tkachuk giving a nice multi-cat boost.

    Drop McIllaney for Tkachuk.

    You’ve got Murray on IR coming back soon and two other number 1’s. Plus Darling gets his chance when he comes back and could bump McIllaney. I wouldn’t keep a fourth goalie.

    I just updated my roster because Murray is back.

    If Tkachuck could reach around 50 point with multi-cat pheripheals, I would drop Meier.
    My league is not deep, so he will still be available if I wish to grab him again.

    I am about to gamble Tkachuck, but the only concern is if he could sustain his recent performance till the end.

    I believe Tkachuk can sustain his current production. His offensive numbers will settle into the 45-50 pt range, but the peripherals will remain. He is hardworking and getting the primo ice time to sustain his peripheral stats (and that isn't going to change).

    I would definitely add Tkachuk - great multi stat plus good amount of PP. They'll give him a lot of good minutes in OTT.

    I added him before the puck drop.
    The Sens and Tkachuck are really impressive.

    It seems like he enjoys the game and throwing all he has on the ice.
    He played only a few games, but really thrilled to have him on my team atm.

    I would add him, but do you need to carry 5 D when only 4 start? Wouldn't Tkachuck be more valuable than your 5th D?
