    Default Who is better

    For the league and stats in my signature, who do you prefer longterm between Buchnevich and Olofsson, and why. How do those 2 compare to Bjorkstrand?

    Would you trade Buchnevich + Kahkonen for one of them?

    I think I'd rather have Buchnevich than Olofsson. Olofsson is all about line placement. If he ever got put on a line away from Eichel, I'd think he'd really suffer. If we knew that Olofsson would always be with Eichel, that'd be different. I wouldn't trade Buchnevich plus Kahkonen for Bjorkstrand. The way seems open for Kahkonen to take the Wild goalie job in the next couple of years. Plus it doesn't seem that you have any other goalies in the farm pipeline. Double plus, he's a Finn which seems like it would be extra enjoyable for you.

    F: Granlund, R. Smith, Ehlers, Buchnevich, Hades, Fabbri

    You'll want to keep this guy, I hear he gives the other team hell.

    I would gamble on Bjorkstrand.

    I'd keep Buchnevich & Kahkonen in your shoes.

    Buchnevich's problem has been deployment. Bjorkstrand's problem before this season was deployment. I think Buchnevich gets that resolved soon, either in New York or Seattle, maybe elsewhere.

    Senryu makes a great point about Kahkonen being Finnish, and he is your only goalie prospect. He's also very much my current favorite to be the Wild main goalie post-expansion.
    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.

    F1: Couturier, Giroux, Voracek
    F2: Schiefele, Wheeler, MacKinnon
    F3: Stamkos, Point, JT Miller
    F4: Bertuzzi, Tavares, Seguin

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