Elias isn't as valuable in a standard league as he is in a custom league. Losing Parise in the offseason will hurt his offense, but he ought to still be effective.

I not sure how he's expected to be used, but I don't put much faith in Tanguay at this point in his career.

Atkinson might get top minutes in Columbus, but it's Columbus ... and Atkinson is a rookie. Don't expect much from him. A better rookie RW option that should be available is Silfverberg in Ott. He's starting the season on a line with Spezza and Michalek. It's a much better situation there and less likely to be a +/- disaster like Columbus is.

Nice D, even though I expect Ekman-Larson to surpass Yandle as the top fantasy Dman in Phoenix this season. See if anyone in your league still holds him in high regard; he might be useful as part of a trade to bolster your offense. OEL might still be available on waivers.

I'd plan to trade either Dubnyk or Bryzgalov if either gets off to a hot start. Lundqvist and Niemi give you two strong starters, so I wouldn't use two bench spots for G depth. One backup should be sufficient ...

So, to recap, I would:
* Drop Kesler
* Drop Tanguay
* See if Silfverberg and Ekman-Larson are available
* Dangle Yandle as trade bait; perhaps trying to package him with one of your goalies to a team with weak G.
Thanks for the feedback dude!

So these are the moves I've made

Dropped Kesler
Dropped Tanguay
Dropped Dubnyk
Dropped Clowe
Picked up Silfverberg, Duchene, Josi, Hudler
