    Default Kane or Rantanen

    Team in sig... I have to decide between Patty Kane and Rantanen.

    MultiCat and age have me thinking Rantanen, but because this is H2H, I worry about keeping Mackinnon, Rantanen and Makar. This season would have worked out because the AVs's schedule was awesome for the FH playoff weeks. Here's what I want to keep:

    Mackinnon,
    Zibanejad,
    Pastrnak,
    Kane or Rantanen,
    Carlson,
    Makar,
    Shesterkin or Lehner or Sasmonov or Markstrom

    Any input would be greatly appreciated!
    10 Team H2H Points (Keep 1C, 2W, 2D, 1G, & 1 non-goalie):
    G,A,+/-, PIM, PPG, SHG, GWG, OTG, FWs, Hits, Blks, Maj, Mis, (bonus scoring for D-men makes them comparable to Wing)
    Wins, Saves, GA, Shutouts

    18 Man Roster (2 IR slots) Daily Start: 2C, 4W, 4D, 2G

    C: MacKinnon, Zibanejad, Horvat, Kopitar
    W: Pastrnak, Rantanen, P. Kane, M. Tkachuk
    D: Carlson, Makar, Pionk, Petry, Pulock, Fox
    G: Holtby, Markstrom, Lehner, Samsonov, Shesterkin (IR)

    Can you make trades before choosing your keepers?

    If so, package Kane with a Goalie for an upgraded Goalie.

    If not, I'd keep Rantanen over Kane.

    Once the off-season hits, with limited keepers, trades are scarce. I might be able to move one of these guys for a draft pick... That's my hope... That and some moves this Summer to clear up my goalie sitch (which is clear as mud right now).

    Rantanen. I prefer Kane right now but not by enough to justify keeping him over the much younger player.

    Since you're forced to keep a goalie, I'd try VERY hard to package one of yours and any of your keepers for an awesome goalie, OR trade away a keeper for a nice pick upgrade.

    Who are the awesome goalies? I see Vasi and Helle as the only guys that are a sure thing for volume and quality... Everything else is voodoo. For all I know Georgiev gets moved or they buyout the King and Shesty is the best G next year.

    Rantanen for me, but honestly, you can't go wrong with either. If you can package one I a trade, then protect the other - that's the way I would go.

    I prefer Rantanen.

    Your goalie situation could be far, far worse. That's somewhere between 3-5 guys should be starters somewhere next year, and they all have talent. You might like it it more settled, though. Given what we know, Shesterkin is the keep - as he's ben named the starter on a defensive-oriented team, and has no pending free agency.
    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.

    G: Bobrovsky
    Backup G: F Andersen
    D: Ekblad, Yandle, Carlson, DeAngelo, Letang, Makar
    F1: Couturier, Giroux, Voracek
    F2: Schiefele, Wheeler, MacKinnon
    F3: Stamkos, Point, JT Miller
    F4: Bertuzzi, Tavares, Seguin

    Bench:
    G:
    D: Barrie, M Reilly, Heiskanen, Klingberg, Morissey, Weegar
    F: Bailey, Benn, Guentzel, Johnsson, Labanc, Mikheyev, Necas
    Reserve: Datsyuk

    I would post both Rantanen & Kane up for a goalie - take the best offer.
    Probably result in upgrading your goaltending AND a pick.

    Fantasy outlook should never go beyond 3 years. In 22/23 - Kane should still be a 90+pt winger.

    He's the better own RIGHT NOW and Next year.

    I guess a lot of folks aren't fully on board with Shesterkin yet (which is fair, goalies being voodoo and all). Personally I think you already have a locked in top 3 goalie, and the only guy I'd like to have over Shesterkin is Vasilevskiy. Maybe I'll be eating my words in a year or two, but I am as 110% convinced he will be a total stud as I was with Vasilevskiy 5 years ago. The only other goalie I have felt similar about is Demko (jury is out), and I never felt as strongly about him as I do about Shesty.

    Personally I'd keep Shesterkin and try to trade 2 skaters for 1 even better skater if that is possible.
