who to take?

In a keeper league...you get to keep 4 players a year 2 of which are forwards...we are currently drafting the players we are going to keep now...Who do i chose?

So far: heatley, sid, malkin, vinny, thorton are gone....who do you take next?

I was thinking either Spezza or Ilya, or is there someone else you take before these guys?

thanks

Iginla?

What about a non-forward like Kipper or Phaneuf?

And, no, I'm not a Flames fan.

At this point I would probably pick Luongo/Kiprusoff/Lundqvist/etc. Spezza is somewhat of a gamble because of his injury history. You'll still be able to get a high end offensive player with your next pick if you decide to do that.

I think I'd go with Hossa.

I was just saying forwards because at that time so many goalies were taken otherwise I would have taken one. Luongo, henrik, kipper..all were taken...and before my pick was up Iginla, hossa and ilya were all taken. I ended up taking spezza, gambled a lil bit perhaps.

Next pick is up soon.....I took my forward and D already have to take a goalie next.

Only ones left that I would consider are: Brodeur, Nabokov and Backstrom.

How would you rank them? Brodeur seems like the no brainer but with his age and his team on the decline I was seriously considering one of the other two, especially nabakov. Thoughts?

goalies are bases on..wins, save percentage, shutouts, Goals against...two per team..you can protect up to one at end of year OR you can get rid of both and draft two more next year. (Not sure I would want to protect Brodeur long term if his team continues to worsen)

I'm a great Nabokov fan, and I really dislike Brodeur... But I think I'd still go with Brodeur on that one. Don't even consider Backstrom, you have two proven players to choose from, you shouldn't gamble.

You took Spezza before Iginla, Kovalchuk, Hossa, why are you lying?
