That's a great question. I'd say Myers just cause Suter doesn't have a lot of fantasy value. McBain is a risk, Carlson...I don't know. If you have a pick close coming up I'd wait on him and go with Myers.

I was also leaning toward Myers. I think I will scratch McBain off the list.

Myers and Suter are a wash in my eyes, if not slight advantage to Suter. I do not think Myers will repeat his rookie season next year. Having Ehrhoff and Gragnani will hurt his production. There are even rumblings of Gragnani+Ehrhoff manning the 1st PP unit. Going by last year's numbers, Suter outproduced Myers across the board in less games played.

Carlsson is a great breakout candidate, but too risky for me to take him above the other two.

Grags is the unquestioned #7 dman going into the season and will not start the year at the #1 PP spot. the first pp unit for buffalo will be Ehrhoff and either Myers of Leopold. The second unit will be Sekera and the other who is not on the first

Myers - NO QUESTION!
Carlson
Suter
McBain

In that order.

i agree but would say that myers and carlson are closer in fantasy value than you think (but it also depends on the stat categories.

on a real NHL team myers without a doubt is the best of all 4

I think you meant to say Suter is without a doubt the best of all 4 in real life.

I feel like I'm being a homer, but it's just interesting that Suter puts up better numbers in less games played than both of these young dmen yet no one is picking him.

In a points-only league, Suter has value because he is consistent. You can reasonably expect him to get around 45 points every year from here on out. In a keeper, that kind of consistency wins a lot of leagues.

That said, Carlson and Myers have a higher potential but there is risk there.

If you already have one or two high risk, high reward-type D-men on your roster, Suter is the better bet. If you have a lot of consistent 35-40 pt d-men, then any one of the other potential high fliers is probably the better choice.

Carlson and it's not even close...WSH PP will be easily be one of the most potent in the league for a long time and Green is RFA after this season and will not be resigned for his price tag with both Carlson and Orlov more than capable of handling the offensive duties in WSH. Carlson. McBain would be #2 but he has both Kaberle and Pitkanen to compete with in CAR so he will likely not get the bulk of the PP time in Carolina. Myers offensive upside is limited as is Suter's as their skill-sets are not close to either Carlson or McBain from an offensive standpoint, Suter being the weaker of the two and on the weaker club on top of it. Carlson easily.

I don't disagree. I know they are close, but where Carlson stands on Washington's roster is lower than where Myers stands on Buffalo's. Myers is already 1st line pairing. Carlson is mainly on the 2nd pairing with Alzner, which isn't bad but isn't that great when discussing fantasy. This is coming from a guy who LOVES Carlson. But in this situation, you have to take Myers.

I'd gamble on Carlson, with Myers right there.

Wait, is everyone assuming this is a keeper league? I was assuming it was for next year only so maybe that's why I'm confused with everyone's answers

Good call. If it's not keeper, I might go Suter.
