    Default Which Center to start?

    I have Larkin, Eichel and Malkin in my yahoo bangers league (not the one in my sig), but only 2 center spots and no flex. Eichel is a gimme facing Minnesota, but do I start Larkin vs Ottawa, or Malkin vs the much better NYI?

    Larkin paces for about 70pts in a full (82gp) season, facing an Ottawa team giving up 3.3 goals per game. 70x3.30 = 231
    Malkin paces for about 90pts in a full (82gp) season, facing a NY Isles team giving up 2.3 goals per game. 90x2.33 = 210

    I'd give a slight edge to starting Larkin here because the Isles D/G is so stealthy right now.
