    Question Final Keeper Choice - Your Thoughts?

    For the top team in my sig, I'm not sure who to take for my last keeper. My keepers in order of certainty are: Kucherov, Marner, Eichel, Gaudreau, RNH, then one of Forsberg/Pionk/Suzuki/B.Tkachuk. In a straight points league, who would you go for? Are there any others on my team I should consider, or any on my current list I should definitely avoid? Thanks!

    If I was you my keepers would be, Kucherov, Marner, Eichel, Gaudreau, B.Tkachuk and Forsberg.

    Tkachuck is a really good young player, always good to keep them around. He will continue to get better along with Ott

    Forsberg is on a down year, but I would expect him to have a better year then RNH next year.

    I still like RNH and Forsberg above B Tkachuk in a straight points league.

    I'd go Forsberg.

    But just to play devil's advocate, I think Pionk could be an interesting option. He is glued to Winnipeg's top PP unit, which is as talented as any. He's only 24 so he's still growing alongside players like Laine and Connor, so added chemistry. Could be a potential 60 point defenseman if he continues to develop offensively, stay healthy, and stay on the top PP unit.

    Once again, I'd go for Forsberg next year. Just something to consider in seasons to come...
    In a 12 man league where we start 9F, 5D, 1 skater and 2 G daily. It is a H2H league - we keep 2 players but if kept in consecutive season, the draft position is subtracted 5 rounds (17th rounder to 12th rounder).

    G, A, +/-, PPP, GWG, HIT, BLK, and DEF.
    F - Mackinnon, Matthews, Marner, Huberdeau, Duchene, Schwartz, Nugent-Hopkins, Monahan, Stephenson, Fast
    D - Doughty, Ellis, Goligoski, Tanev, Dermott, Cole

    W, SV, SV% and SO.
    G - Varlamov, Greiss, Kuemper, and Gibson
    IR - Tarasenko

    Forsberg as well...

    I'd also be tempted at keeping Tkachuk. I think he's got as high if not a higher upside than Forsberg. Just 'when?'

    Thanks guys! Rep left. I'd had the same thoughts. Lots of upside for a Tkachuk, Pionk or Suzuki, but they're also a lot more likely to be available for redrafting than a Forsberg, whose name recognition would probably get him taken in the first round.
