    Default My Backstrom for Kopitar One for One

    Hi all.

    Im a Kings fan and would love to have AK, but also not sure if im biased? FHG always has these guys reasonably close.

    My league plays G A PPP Shots PIMs Hits Blocks Takeaways.

    Which one do you prefer this year and over next 2-3 years.

    I'd keep Backstrom here, as he is the far more reliable fantasy asset. He should run away with Assists and PPP, and he should be around 20 goals again. Shots, Hits, Blocks, and Takeaways should be close to a wash.

    So Backstrom wins two categories handily (A, PPP), and the rest of the categories are either a wash (PIM, Shots, Hits, Blocks, Takeaways) or are very close with a slight edge to Kopitar (goals). I would definitely hold Backstrom because his production offers better coverage of categories, he is in a much better situation to produce points, and his crafty playmaking style should remain effective well into the later years of his career. He's just a lot safer.

    While year to year, one could outperform the other, Backstrom remains younger and has been the more consistent performer. He's the easy keep.

    I think Backstrom is safer, but you are a Kings fan, and FHG is saying it's close in your league.

    See if you can get a sweetener, so you can enjoy rooting for Kopitar on your fantasy squad.
    10 team Head-to-head true dynasty. Roster 33, draft 2, cut down before season. Start 1 G, 1 backup G, 6 D, 12 F arranged in 4 lines of 3. Only categories that matter are Goals, Assists, Save% with a shutout bonus. Having NHL teammates helps.
