    Default Giroux, Benn, Stone - Keep 2

    My league is a 12 team, 27 man roster keeper league that uses NHL contract dates as to when a player has to be released back into the pool (max 4 year contract). Each team can protect two players with expiring contracts as "franchise" players that get an extra year tacked on their contract (max one goalie).

    Last year I protected Claude Giroux and Jamie Benn. After Mark Stone only signed for one year, he is now someone i have to protect or throw back into the draft where he would be issued a new contract date.

    Categories are G, A, +/-, ESP, HITS, PIM

    Does Benn bounce back? Will Stone do well in Vegas on line #2 to make up for his lack of Hits/PIM's? Will Giroux continue to be a solid starter with the Flyers?

    Thanks for your thoughts.

    Giroux & Benn for me.

    Benn because he has HITS and PIM
    Giroux because he has proven he can put 80 points +

    Stone would be my 3rd pick because although he is red hot and in a new team with better potential to explode, he still hasn't done a season over 75 points, whereas the other 2 have proven to be able to do it.
    Plus trade value i would Giroux and Benn are worth more imo based on name alone

    I think I go with Stone and Giroux. I like Stone the most of the group.
    Benn is great but hasn't been elite for a little while.

    Stone's trending the right way. We're seeing a renaissance in G that might continue a little longer. I have been a happy Benn owner for years but I fear for Benn's longevity given his odometer of rugged play. Power forwards have a shorter shelf life than cerebral players and of the three, only Benn is the PF among them.
