Upshall keeper league question

Hi guys. I'm in a keeper league in which I own Scottie Upshall. My question is with the newly acquired Dumont, will Upshall(I'm guessin he'll play 3rd line now that Dumont is there) have enough significant ice time to become an impact player? Is there a possibility of him playing 75-80 games this year and getting 45-55 points? I really like his offensive potential but they're a bunch of free agents this year in our league who are better bets than Upshall(here's a few: Zach Parise, Kyle Calder, Mike Knuble, Fredrik Modin, Brian Rolston, Michael Handzus). I have decided to sign 2 probably 3 free agent forwards because I have the cap space. I must dump 3 of these 4 players to do so: Upshall, Ponikarovsky, Kolnik, Dupuis. As of right now, Ive decided to keep Ponikarovsky cause he'll probably be centered by Sundin on the 1st line(lastest reports say so) or at least play top 2 line minutes. So what do you guys think? Should I also keep Upshall at 55 cents contract this year and only sign 2 forwards at around 6$ each or dump him also and sign 3 forwards at 6$ each?

Thanks for the advice in advance.

I'd say if he has 40 points at the end of the year, it would be wonderful, but I don't see anything over that. I think 15 goals 20-25 assist is a good base.

It really depends on his ice time. He had 1/2 a point per minute played last season, so if he gets to play on the top three lines he should put up some points for you.

I meant to say he has 1/2 a point per game with an average of 10:26 minutes per game.
