    Default Time to Drop Smith?

    Roster and league details in my settings.

    Is it (long past) time to dump Mike Smith? I've already had to dump Talbot... I'm in 2nd, 2 points out of 1st, so I want to make a push and I have Rakell ready to come off the IR... My other option is to drop Delia, but his peripherals (# of SVs + good SV%) have been helpful of late.

    Before too long, I imagine I'll be down to just Vas, Rittich, and Howard as my goalies, with Elliott waiting in the wings. Right now, I'm about on pace for Games Played at the goalie position (just a little under, but that has a lot to do with Vas's injury and my decision to bench Talbot and Smith for long stretches).

    I owned Smith in two one-year leagues and dropped him in both several weeks ago.

    No issue dropping Smith. I did it last week. He's worth monitoring in free agency but not worth rostering in a lot of leagues.
    Set roster weekly in H2H (Mon to Sun) - 16 Teams - start 6F, 3D, and 1G per week - Keep 2

    Points: 2 G / 2 A / 1 PPG / 1 PPA / 1 Hat Trick / 1 SHG / 1 SHA / 1 GWG - 3 Goalie Win / 2 Goalie Loss in SO or OT / 5 goalie SO

    Forwards:
    C. McDavid N. Kucherov, M. Zibanajed, J. Guentzel, J. van Riemsdyck, V. Trochek, N. Neidereiter, D. Strome, B. Schenn

    Defense:
    T. Krug, E. Gustafsson, J. Faulk

    Goalie:
    M. Jones

    IR (2 max):
    E. Karlsson

    Drop Smith, no one will pick him up till he does something. Dropped him twice this year. When I had him, he was only a drain on my stats.

    Past, perhaps long past. You have far better options.

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

    Bench:
    G: (none)
    D: Ekman-Larsson,Gostisbehere, Werenski
    F: Bailey, Guentzel, Killorn, Labanc, JT Miller, Voracek,
    F: Duclair, Necas, Simon, Sprong,

    Reserve: Datsyuk

    Hmm. I think my next post will be, 'what's Rittich's value long-term?'

    Tarasenko and Benn have been keepers for me for years, but if things continue as they have been, it will be hard to justify keeper either of them after this year, and that will leave me with some decisions to make.
