Stupid Question?

Hey guys, Flyers fan here, just looking for some details on your team. I recently chose CBJ as my team in our NHL 13 connected league and just want to know the values of the players and what not. There is a lot of youth here I am unfamiliar with. And honestly being a western team I rarely see them anyway. For example is RJ Umberger still a solid piece to the puzzle? Has his game dropped off any? Would you trade him. If so for what? That kinda stuff. any info on any player would be greatly appreciated.

Not sure how to go about answering what amounts to a "tell me everything about your team's roster" question , but as for RJ, he's a little bit polarizing right now because he (like almost everyone else here) had a down year last year, and as this was also the first year of his new contract, that annoyed folks.

He's almost certainly still a solid puzzle piece, but folks are far less united on that conclusion than they used to be.

Unfortunately, based on some of the player ratings I've seen so far, most of our underrated strengths don't show up in NHL13 at all. Most of our blueline (particularly Nikitin) seems to have been dismissed, and Atkinson is likely to be leaned on as a quality forward but he doesn't appear to even be in the game.

Remember - when you're a hockey fan, it's not "reckless driving", it's "good forechecking".

Thanks, Howson, for cleaning up MacLean's toxic waste. Welcome, Kekalainen; let's get good things built!

Why don't we just merge this into the player-by-player analysis thread? His will eventually have his answers.

At any rate this is too broad. As far as RJ goes. He's still important, his production is roughly the same. He's probably not getting traded, especially with his contract and the CBA issues. Would I trade him? Depends on what the return is.

No merge - just a recommendation - and a close.
