Had two trade offers proposed to me in a keeper league yesterday; And I stress, keeper league...

My Duchene for his Bertuzzi
My Eberle for his Olli Jokinen

I can understand some fantasy players are probably new to the game so I didn't bite their heads off when I rejected the offers, but a bigger part of me wondered whether they were simply trying to take advantage of someone they thought might now know what they're doing.

Also, I've now got a killer goalie crisis that'll probably see me forfeiting goalie categories until Anderson returns. Urgh.

Quick has been better than Turco so far this season. I say Quick.

Yeah, Quick for me too. Doughty's out though isn't he? Not sure how much that'll effect the Kings.

Doughty is out.

Chicago was 29-8-4 @ home last year. Hard to bet against that...

How much longer do I wait before dropping Antti Niemi? He has been an abomination so far. Figured he would be decent with SJ and at least get wins.

I'm in the same boat. Can't decide what to do. I mean, he'll get it together eventually..... right?

It is a tough spot because the Sharks could get on a roll.

My alternatives on the waiver wire are....

Mike Smith
Anders Lindback
Brian Elliot

What do you think?

Me too. I've really got no choice but to hold out and hope Nittymaki falls into Philly form.

I actually grabbed Elliot right when Leclaire went down and traded him immediately. I already had 3 goalies:

Quick
Anderson
Giguere

and moved Elliot to some guy for Wolski.

Once Leclaire comes back I would think Elliot wouldn't be very valuable.

I wouldn't be so sure.

Now that Anderson's out, I grabbed Budaj, but I'm not counting on much more than hitting my minimum starts requirement. Teamed with Chris Mason and Bernier, and of course Niemi, my goaltending is currently an absolute **** show.

Trade between Chariot and myself up for review.

Briere and MAF for Kane and Niemi.

Gotta give to get. At least you have a regular starter now. Raask has been **** on by Thomas, Pavelec almost died, and Bryz has been human. I'm starting to consider trading Ovie in a package for a legit #1.

Who's worth it though? Is Thomas back to form, or just hot right now? Do you believe enough in Quick or Halak?

Not gonna vote against it, but just wondering why you would want to do that one? I think at best it's lateral for you, and a potential steal for Chariot. I'd stick with Niemi, but if not, wouldn't give up Kane in a deal to marginally improve G.

Without a #1 goaltender, I had to throw caution to the wind and take a chance that MAF gets it together. He's got a better chance of doing that than Niemi IMO and he's facing much weaker competition for the job.

Thats the thing. Thomas is on the wrong side of 30 and has to slow down. Halak is the real deal, but the Blues are suffering some injury problems right now. Is Quick's success a product of his team or his play? Too may questions right now, but definitely thinking about a move.

Rask has so far been my biggest disappointment. I have:

Rask
Roloson
Hedberg

I pretty much only have backup goalies. Well I'm not sure who's the starting goalie for NYI. So lets just say I have 2.5 backup goalies.

aww I enjoyed a week of first place in Champs league, and two weeks of top 3. Looks like my No-move-strategy isnt working anymore. Maybe it's time to shake things up

Everyone having fun?

MAF really turned the fortunes of my team. If Zajac would just do something......anything.......I could set off in pursuit of Jarmac and Shat Scar.

1st/2nd place in 7 of 8 leagues and a mediocre 6th in the 8th.

Fantasy has been good to me the 1st quarter, but Stewart just went down whom I have on about 4 teams, so that's not good.

So far I'm super happy with my team's offense. I'm pretty sure I want to marry Byfuglien and Hejduk. I'm worried about goaltending though--I'm praying that Nittymaki keeps it up and Elliot gets more consistent.
