    Default Help me pick my last keeper

    Deadline is tomorrow and I need to choose my last keeper. The options are:
    • Tyler Motte
    • Oliver Wahlstrom
    • Alexander Romanov (+Dan Vladar, potentially)*
    • Vitali Kravstov
    • Evan Bouchard


    *We use a salary cap for keepers and Romanov + Vladar basically equal the amount of free cap space I have, though I'm not sure Vladar is worth rostering.

    My team is very lacking in hits right now (only Neal Pionk and Mario Ferraro will really help me there), so I'm leaning towards Tyler Motte, though I'm very tempted to go for the Hail Mary and keep Kravstov.

    Romanov is probably the safest play. He offers hits like Motte and could fill a pretty big role with the Habs with Weber out. But we have only 4 D slots, so rostering 6 D is risky.

    I love Bouchard's potential, but I worry that he's going to either end up in the AHL or bounce back and forth between the lineup and the press box. Since he'd be my 6th D, it wouldn't be the end of the world if he didn't play every game, but while I'm definitely rebuilding, I have a really strong draft position and I feel like I have a chance to compete this season.

    Any advice/suggestions would be appreciated!



    For reference, here are my other keepers:

    Interesting decision to make. I li'ke who you are keeping and agree with most of your writeups and descriptions. I think I'd go with Romanov even though you don't need him, mainly because he can be good trade bait in the season. That or injuries could play in and he could be useful to you. He's the best option there. If a forward is more of your fancy, I think I'd gamble on Wahlstrom before I'd gamble on Kravtsov.

    Vitali Kravstov for me, Looks like Rangers are going to start him on L2( could change) but from what I've read they are going to give him every opportunity.

    I think I might be able to swing a trade for Carter Verhaeghe using an unneeded draft pick. Where do you think he would fit in?

    That was my thinking. If he crashes and burns, it's not the end of the world.
