Not that he's a slouch himself. If your league counts +/- keep an eye on DZ, there may be better options unless he breaks out this year and goes Mike Green in the scoring department.
the scoring is: G, A, P, PIM, PPP, +/-, SOG. now i know DZ had a really really awful +/- last season, but i figure i can maybe box him in a trade in a month if he seems to be doing okay. Bergeron had 50-60 points last season and the thing that surprised me the most was the fact that he was my last pick of the evening.
as for Staal, that was kind of a homer pick, not to mention all the "scoring" d-men were already taken. i figure since his offense has gotten a little bit better (see: goal against Ottawa lol) he'll be getting a few more points, but i really only picked him up because i know his +/- will be worth him staying. if not, i can package him in a trade right now, which is where i'm stuck...
my friend, who is in this league with me, wants to make a trade. he tried to give me Pavelski and Backes for Franzen. now, i know that's not a bad trade, but if Franzen stays healthy, he's a threat. i feel he's a bigger threat than Backes and possible Pavelski, depending on who he's playing with. i was considering moving Staal and Franzen for Pavelski and someone else, but there are literally no more good d-men, and the only spare forward i could possibly want that's left is Josh Bailey. and MAYBE Ryan O'Reilly.
any advice would be awesome, DW. thanks
