Carter or Richards? Who will score more this season?

Outside fantasy owner here, in a league that counts goals and assists. I have Richards on my team, and another owner offered me to trade him for Carter, straight up. Carter hasn't produced as much this year, but I was looking through the GDT and it was speculated that Carter would center the first line while Richards would be on the third.

Here's the question: who do you guys think will be worth more by the end of the season? Is Carter going to step it up and end up with more points than Richards? Or should I stick with Rich?

Also, Spezza recently became available as a FA, as well as Mikko Koivu and Briere. All are centers.. are any of them better options than Carter or Richards?

Richards and Carter are a push, so don't bother doing the trade. Pick up Briere though, he should rack up some major points this year - if he stays healthy.

Points is a push.
PIMs is Richards.
Goals is Carter.
PP points is Richards
PP goals is a push.

It's up to you do decide what you want to do with that.

None of them are necessarily better options than Carter or Richards, but Briere is going to rack up some points this year.

It really depends on your categories. If it's straight up points, Carter and Richards will probably be a push.

The only other guy you mentioned who I would consider over either is Mikko Koivu. The Flyers will probably score more goals than Minnesota but, due to the depth in Philly, top end scoring will be lower. Koivu has a decent shot at cracking 80 points, where I believe both Carter and Richards are destined for high 60s, low 70s numbers. Though, if your pool is straight up points, Koivu's really a push, too.

Yea, the pool is basically straight up points. Although it is set up so that you get an extra two points for either a short-handed goal or hat trick. So a hat trick would be worth 5 points (3 for the goals, 2 extra), while a short-handed goal is worth 3 points (1 goal, 2 extra)

EDIT: by "push" do you guys mean there's no preference?

Richards will get your shorties and Carter will get more hat-tricks.

You're SOL buddy if you think you're going to get an accurate read on who helps you more without plain dumb luck.

Push basically means that it's up in the air; that it's so close no one will be able to even make an educated guess. It's a flip of the coin with basically the same result regardless of which side it lands on.

Who else is on your team that you could drop for Briere or Koivu or Spezza?

It's a 4-person league, so center's pretty deep. I have Tavares, Thornton, Stastny, and Marleau (as a utility player)

It's a toss up but Carter, at least in my Yahoo league, is listed as center and right wing, so a little more flexability. He should also end up with a lot (probably 70-80) more shots if thats counted.

If PIMS are involved I'd go with Richie. Otherwise, like everyone is saying it's pretty much the same.
