Hey guys here's my dilemma. The pool I'm in has 12 teams and is a year to year pool, however this year we have the opportunity to keep two guys from last season. Goalies are somewhat important (Brodeur was the top point getter for the pool).
The scoring system for skaters is - 3 for a goal, 2 for an assist, +/-1 for plus minus, .2 points for every penalty minute.
Goalies it's 5 for a win, 7 for a shut out.
Finished 2nd last year but my problem is I didn't have a lot of top end guys just a lot of depth. Here are the guys who I am considering holding onto.
I am holding onto Marian Hossa for sure and I'm leaning towards Brad Richards. The way I figure, he had a pretty bad year last season and still managed 70 points. If he happens to get a winger on his line or get traded he is back up to the 80 point mark easily.
Any opinions and reasons would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
I would personally protect Hossa and Daniel Sedin. Now I am a huge Canucks fan, but Daniel scored 36-48-84 whereas Richards scored 25-45-70. Daniel also had a +19 whereas Richards had -19, while the PIM were about equal. Even if they both score around the same amount of points this season Daniel will probably score more goals and once again have a better plus minus. I may even take Semin over Richards (especially if position matters). I wouldn't bother protecting a goaltender as you will probably be able to draft a decent goaltender later.
