    Default Do I have any chance to win?

    Team/format in sig.
    I'm in 4th place of 13. 147 points back of the leader.
    His team:
    Forwards: MacKinnon, draisaitl, huberdeau, rantanen, Kopitar, D.Strome, E.Staal. Rust

    Defense: Yandle, Carlson, Makar, Doughty

    Goalies: Hellebuyck, Jones

    I have no drops left. Is my team good enough to make up ground with 30 games left?
    What can I do?

    It's surprising he's that far ahead with Helle and Jones as his goalies....

    I think if he suffers some injuries then you have a slim chance. 147 points in basically a points only format is a longgggg way to go.

    It's because his is the only team stacked like that on forward and defense due to a mostly clueless draft from everyone else in the early rounds.

    nah he has three superstar forwards who will cross 100 points plus Rantanen who will be above point per game. This not even considering his stacked defensive corps, he is staying in first barring injury just accept it. He's in first with Jones just like I am in first with Jones, because the rest of the team more than makes up for his shortcomings.

    Yup. I've been in denial. It's over.

    If you have no drops left, isn't the "what can I do" redundant? Nobody trades in a one year league (unless it's collusion, basically).

    The only thing you can do is pray for injuries to the top team; I think that's your only hope.

    I've made quite a few trades, but you're right it's like pulling teeth to get a deal done.
    If Grubauer solidifies as the number 1 and gets hot and the top team gets an injury and a couple guys slow down...maybe

    I was thinking my only hope would be an injury, and to acquire another superstar, and I almost had a deal for Patrick Kane, but it fizzled.

    Are there min/max games played at any position? Sometimes you can squeeze out a few extra goalie starts (and hope for bigger pts from wins/shutouts to bridge the gap).

    No, min/max, but it's not weekly, and I'm out of drops so I can't really take advantage of that.
