In a keeper league we get to keep 3 C, 3 LW, 3 RW, 6 D (I find too many but I'm not commish), 2 G, so draft is pretty weak.
My centers I'm keeping are Seguin, Tavares, Galchenyuk (easy choices)
LW: Vanek, Hall and one of Kulemin, Semin or Lupul (my 3rd spot is weak)
RW: Yakupov, Eberle and the same options as my 3rd LW (all 3 are RW eligible)
The others don't matter for the trade.
So I was offered 2 5ths, Tarasenko and Duchene for my 2 first rounders. With so many keepers how valuable would a first rounder be? we also do the order in reverse standings order from the year prior and one is likely a playoff team.
Duchene has LW eligibility so would work there and Tarasenko slides into my 3rd RW spot nicely. If Duchene loses LW eligibility, Yaks likely will have LW eligibility so I can switch Duchene to center, Yaks to LW, Seguin to RW so it works. I have never seen Tarasenko play but know the hype and he's getting points but how has he actually looked? We count G, a, p, +/-, PPG, SHP, hits, SOG.
So is it worth it? Just figured I'd give full detail of everything. Thanks
Don't know if this is a good way of looking at or not but how I look at it and decide is do you think the players you could get with the first rounders are better or worse than Duchene and Tarensenko. You said it yourself that its a shallow draft so if Duchene and Tarensenko are better than what you think you could draft with your first rounders then I would go for it.
