    Honestly missed wheeler. I'd add him to the locks. Gaudreau is definitely worth hard consideration as well.

    I may be a bit late to the party, but here goes:

    C/LW/RW: Barkov, Ovechkin, P. Kane
    Flex forward: Wheeler ( see below)
    D: Burns, (see below)
    G: Hellebuyck

    That makes 6. I want another D, and another F.

    I'd keep one of Carlson or Josi, as I think they are the 2 safest defensemen you can pick from. I prefer Carlson, but the return on them may be highly different.

    At forward, you have options. Others listed the guys I'd consider, so repeating it here:


    Benn - dual position, had a down year, so likely redraftable cheaper than one would think, solid in this format.
    Gaudreau - single position wing, scorer only, but best scorer in this group.
    Hertl - triple position guy, not much of a grit guy, but gets FOW. Might lose wing eligibilities?
    E. Kane - single position wing, very much a multi category guy
    Schenn - dual position, but fewer FOW than last year, and not a great scorer, eliminated from consideration
    Zibanejad - plays C only, eliminated from consideration.

    I think your last forward should come from the first 4 guys listed (alphabetically) above. I'd be willing to sell one or more of them off. If Hertl goes to a single position C, you can eliminate him. If he keeps all 3 positions, I really like him.

    Thank you for keeping this alive guys.

    I think we have determined that I have 6 locks:

    C - Barkov
    C/RW - Wheeler
    LW - Ovechkin
    RW - P. Kane
    D - Burns
    G - Hellebuyck

    I need to fill 2 more keepers and the most mentions are Gaudreau, Zibanejad, Benn, Hertl, E. Kane and Josi.

    It seems crazy to me that P. Kane would be a lock but Gaudreau isn’t? I have to keep him don’t I?

    I’d also like to keep Carlson. Man, I really like Pulock though.

    I have the first 5 picks in the draft and will use the first 2 on Hughes and Kakko. Not sure about Byram with my 3rd and then the two best non-keepers next.

    It looks like you guys want me to trade away E. Kane, Forsberg, Zibanejad, Hertl, Benn, Schenn, Josi, Muzzin and Lehner.

    As of now, that is what I will try after I go after the championship.

    Also, it will really suck if Svechnikov plays all 82 games because I’d be using one of my 5 1sts to get him back right away in the draft. If he plays 81, I can protect him in my minors.

    I wouldn't use one of those picks on Byram. Go for the win again next year.

    P Kane has 2 main advantages over Gaudreau: slightly better peripherals (Hit, Blk, PPP), and he may be the best player at his position in your league. We know Ovechkin >> Gaudreau and everyone else in this format at LW. So you lock up an elite guy at each spot, and have Wheeler to flex.

    Gaudreau's advantage is youth, but yours is absolutely a contending team, and you should get a lot more in return for the guy well under 30.

    I agree with EB to keep going for the win next year, and frankly in perpetuity. You're loaded, keep steamrolling.

    This is really well put and I concur with the assessment. Gaudreau is probably the hardest cut but I think it makes the most sense.

    Who should be my 8 keepers? I will trade everybody else after the season ends so keep in mind name-value if you want.

    Note: If Svechnikov doesnt miss a game and plays all 82, Id basically be forced to graduate him and Id have to make a decision on him too.

    Thank you and I will absolutely rep because of the thought process involved. Thank you for you time.
    F - Barkov, Ovechkin, P Kane, E. Kane, Gaudreau
    D - Burns, Carlson
    G -Helle

    This would be my 8. The hardest cut for me was Wheeler vs. Gaudreau & Carlson over Krug/Josi - I just think Carlson has slightly higher offensive upside on D (B2B 65+ pt seasons.

    Wheeler/Gaudreau are pretty much on par offensively. I went with JG due to age, you sacrifice a few periphs this way, but Wheeler doesn't hit as much as one thinks anyway. He's always undervalued, so potential of him dropping (due to age) and redrafting early on.

    E. Kane is a hit/sog combo beast, add in how he fits with SJ and he's gold on wing in this format.

    Helle - a top 5 G option in any keeper pool.

    Barkov, Burns, Ovie, P. Kane are pure gold and require no explanation,
    well perhaps just add Barkov's predominance in the face off circle, dude takes an elite number of draws per year

    This gives you a solid balance of 5F, 2D, 1G.

    Having Burns/Carlson ripping 60+pts next year also allows you to sleep on D for the first couple rounds and grab those MC beasts that will be undervalued - Nurse, Petry, Pulock (I expect his #'s to go up in every cat next year)

    You've got flexibility to take BPA early on in the draft and fill roster needs - cat stuffers later on (IE: McNabb)

    regarding Svech... only be sad having to drop him in name only. There's no way I see him reaching the level of any of your 5F's by end of next season. Even if he puts up 70pts. It'll be hard for him the be worth more than E. Kane in your format.

    He's just not there yet.

    Having to drop players like Wheeler, Josi & Svech - it's kind of like seniors complaining their annual income after retirement is too high that they have to pay taxes.
    It's a problem you WANT to have.

    This was my thought as well. What am I missing here!? Johnny hockey not a lock over Barkov? Maybe it's the other Gaudreau!
