Whom Do I Drop?

10 Team H2H League

This is my team:

C Crosby
C RW Backes
C RW Carter
LW Hall
LW Moulson
LW Pacioretty
LW Kunitz
LW RW Franzen
RW Iginla
RW Pominville
D Phaneuf
D Green
D Carle
IR D Letang

G Rinne
G Halak
G Crawford

I want to take Letang off IR soon but that means I have to drop someone. I have a plethora of LWs but can't decide who to dump. Trade route has come up dry too.

Iginla? For real? I mean I know he's starting off slow but doesn't he always? That just feels downright blasphemous.

Don't drop Iginla, of course, that is nonsense. I would instead try to trade away 2 of your players for 1 really good one and so create an open spot. You don't have to hurry with Letang I think.

Thanks that's solid advice. Though my league looks to be really trade-averse. If it came down to it, Kunitz or Pacioretty?

Drop Kunitz or make that trade, as suggested.

I was leaning that way (Patches) but I'm going to wait and see for now. I seriously doubt I would get someone to overpay for Iggy at this point. It doesn't appear to be a league that cares too much about track record and leans more toward "what have you done for me lately".

No way you drop Kunitz, you would be totally crazy to do so. Try to trade out Pacioretty in a tandem with someone. Looking at that team it is really hard to single out a player to be cut off. I would hate parting with any of them, that is why I suggest a trade which would bring in another strong player. Maybe add Moulson to Pacioretty, but make sure you get a TOP 10 LW for them both. Moulson is just a great player on a crappy team. Don't know what stats you count in your league, but he might bring in quite a negative +/- stat.
All in all, I would cut down on your LW's that way and still be a winner. You have time, don't do anything too quickly, just because you want Letang on your active roster ASAP. You have great players on your team and it would be really shame to lose them this way.

Thanks for the input. I totally agree. I'll see what happens but the trade route doesn't seem promising, as folks aren't too receptive to 2-for-1 trades, considering they'd have to drop a player just to do the swap...even if it means a better "total" stat line. Oh well...
