I would recommend keeping Falk and Granlund though since they actually get good, although like all prospects, Granlund's faceoff rating never gets better than 60.

And there's no 78 overall Brodin in free agency for me so it must just be you.
That's why I upped Brodin's potential from 4 stars to 4.

Falk was claimed off the waivers, which was a bit of a gaff from me. That being said, D is not my worry right now.

Current line-up (as of November 2013, with everyone healthy):

Fontaine, Chapuit


I still have Zucker, Phillips, Coyle etc in the system, but they're in the AHL this year.

I've done the following "major" trades:


Carl Gunnarsson



Nathan Horton


Sami Vatanen
Carl Gunnarsson
Nick Palmieri

Ryan McDonagh


Tyler Graovac
Robbie Figren
2014 2nd

Curtis Glencross
Markus Granlund

I think I don't need to make any trades for a while. Mind you, I acquired Clowe, Figren, Chapuit and Cheechoo plus couple others off FA last summer, so I think I've done quite well with my assets. Now I'm looking to trade Clowe so I can fit Fontaine back into the line-up. For some reason, he developed into a 79 OVR sniper over last summer and he has an insane shot (99 wrister power and 90 accuracy or something like that).
