    Cool Looking to upgrade Keepers!!!

    14 Team (9 Keepers and 1 G)
    H2H
    We play 2C, 2LW, 2RW, 1F, 1W, 4D, 1Util per night (very heavy on forwards)
    G A PTS +- PPP SOG PIM

    I know itís early but Iím in the middle of the pack with no 1st round next season looking to better my keepers for season or two.

    KEEP:
    C: Barkov, Malkin
    LW: Marchand, N-Hopkins(C)
    RW: Kucherov, Gaudreau (LW)
    D: J.Carlson, Ekblad (currently)

    In Question (Pick one or two for my 9th keeper or to replace the above)
    C: Trocheck
    LW: Rust (RW)
    RW: Kaako, Bjorkstrand(LW)
    D: Doughty, Dumba

    I appreciate any advice.
    Should I upgrade my 9th and buy low on the likes of Zibanejad, etc. or am I in good shape?

    Cheers!

    If you're feeling you are out of contention for the season; I'd look to package some of your existing keepers and your 'questionable' ones in a 2 for 1 to upgrade your keepers.

    Maybe you could package N-Hopkins & Rust for a Brock Boeser. Could also look at Trocheck (who is hot right now) & Gaudreau for a Kyle Connor.

    And like you noted, players like Zibanejad (and even Panarin) aren't lighting it up this season, but still have the ability too. It all comes down to the other owners in your league. Target the ones battling for the top spot, and see if any of them have a young superstar who would do a 2/3 for 1 trade. No use you keeping Doughty, Trocheck, Rust, etc. just to end up dropping them. Use them and your 5-9 ranked keepers to try to upgrade all wherever possible.

    I like your keepers in a 14 team league, not having kuch this year and Malkins slow start have hurt for sure. should be fine next year but yes doesn't hurt to try some 2 for 1's to improve where you can. I'd try to package 2 or 3 of your bubble keepers for one a little better and roll with your 8 keepers above. could move Malkin but this is not the time, wait till he is hot for a week or 2. As for Zibanejad, yes he is a buy low for sure but I don't see him getting back to last years stats ever. I think a lot of rangers over performed last year, but he is better than he is playing right now. Who are your Goalies? is that a reason for a slow start as well?

    Thanks for the replies! My G now are Rask, Halak and Blackwood (thankfully back). My team got killed the first 3 weeks, missing several starts due to covid. I had to move a few players around to get to where I am currently. I don’t have too much faith in this season, still going to compete, but with Kucherov out and covid throwing all logic out the window Im also preparing for a proper season next time around and hoping to capitalize on trading my bottom players.
    P.s. I’m not tied to Ekblad, but he I currently my to D in this format. And he’s only 24

    Can you keep more than 1 goalie? Or can only keep 1? Rask and Blackwood both could potentially be seen as keeper goalies. Guess it all depends on how many / how heavy stats are for goalies in your 14 team league. If you choose to keep both, that limits you down to just 8 skaters, and gives you more ammunition to improve that quality.

    Have you looked to see who owns Dahlin in your league? This is the opportunity to buy low. He may be another year away from breaking through, but his upside is much higher thank Ekblad. Depending on that owner, you could maybe even package him in with a 3 for 1 style of trade, and make it a 3 for 2 kind of thing. Food for thought at least.
