If it works it will clear up a lot of clutter, instead of different threads for crosby vs. X, crosby vs. Y, crosby vs. Z

Is giving up Mike Smith worth the risk of taking on Varlamov if he isn't named starter at the beginning of the season?

I wouldn't risk it.
You have Ward, who is the starter of course, but Conklin's not, and maybe Varlamov will not be, so you might lose quite a few categories due to les than 3 starts a week (if you have that rule).

I try to stay away from Nashville goalies. With their track record who knows who will end up the starter. Personally I think Rinne gets about 75% of the starts, but again, it's Nashville so :dunno:

i would pick up ellis over conklin. the coach never named a starter and said it would be 1a/1b (although that was like a month ago). ellis has been doing really well in training camp and so has chris mason.

i agree with ellis being a better 3rd goalie then conklin. keep smith over varlamov, but if he gets a few starts in a row snag him.

I have a lot invested in Rinne in one of my leagues, so all this talk had me intrigued. I did a little research, and Ellis has indeed been dominant in the preseason, while Rinne has struggled.

FWIW, the guys on the Preds hfboard are convinced that Ellis has, at the very least, worked his way into a platoon to start the year. Some are calling him the #1. Trotz hasn't commented, but the Preds first game is Saturday, so watch for an announcement on the starter for the season opener in the coming days.

Your LW is really solid. RW is good and will only get better when Kessel returns. I like your defense, but I'm not a huge Kaberle fan. He will be the man in Toronto, though. I also don't like Briere, but I had him in a few leagues last year, so I'm biased. I like your depth in net. If Price rebounds, Huet doesn't collapse, and Smith's health holds up, you could move a goalie for an upgrade somewhere else.

avery is fine, and playing in the opener....
Newsday reports Rangers LW Sean Avery (http://esl.hockey.cbssports.com/players/playerpage/152282), who sprained his right knee in a late September preseason game, is off crutches and walking around with no notable signs of pain. Avery's MRI has come back clean and the agitator expects to be in the lineup for Friday's opener against the Penguins. "Hopefully, I'm getting my injury out of the way now so it doesn't happen during the season," he said.
(Updated 09/29/2009).

wonder how that affects the lines...

I have not heard anything on the baords about Brian MCCabe. Did he get injured nad I missed it or is the fact that he is no longer getting pucks fed to him from Kaberle the reason no one is talking about him? Wouldn't he still be a decent 40 point 80 PIM defenseman?

iknowkungfu
09-30-2009, 12:42 PM
right now, dubi is #1 center, and prospal is #2, torts apparently really likes prospal at center opposed to wing

i'm a little worried about dubi's pim production now though being on first line and having a different sort of responsibility, but of course he'll be first to step up if gaborik gets hit

you get what you expect from mccabe, he just does it quietly outside of the TO spotlight, although his PIMS have dropped a little bit

Thanks for that info Zang! I am struggling to find a third goalie. Currently holding onto Elliot and Niemi and hoping one steals starts from the starter (if Niemi even makes it as Huet's backup).

What 2 backups would you guys take as "potential #1 stealers/platooners"? I would like to invest in 2 in the hopes that I get a third goalie:

Ellis, Elliot, Niemi, Clemmenson, Boucher, Auld, Nittymaki, Harding, Labarbara

Currently thinking Ellis, Elliot and Boucher may be top options, though I do like Niemi since I don't think Huet can handle a real 60+ season.

Chilly_Willy
09-30-2009, 01:25 PM
I think Auld could see 25 or more starts. But I would gamble on ellis first. Elliot may see some starts but I worry about the stats in Ottawa. Boucher is nersing a minor groin pull if I remember right. Vokun has to get hurt for clemmensen to see time IMO. the others I don't see value in.

Thanks! Now that I remember, Turco said he wants to cut down on his starts to about 55 or so.....so Auld might be a good 3rd option. I am now leaning to drop Elliot and Niemi and getting Ellis and Auld when they clear waivers (I have #2 waiver and don't think I should use it on a third goalie).

tyler myers did make the team, he will be the pp qb of the future along with butler, it will be interesting to see which one of these two asserts themselves well enough to get consistent pp time, they will be fighting it out with Rivet for the likley lone d spot as connolly when healthy will be manning the other point

IMO ellis has the best chance of taking a starters role...I think they nash will play him early if he gets hot and then trade him away as I am sure that they feel Rinne is the goalie of the future...

Elias was dropped in my pool (probably because the manager couldn't figure out how to get him onto IR --> need to go to Classic mode)

L: Morrow, Kunitz, Mcdonald (C/L), Kariya, Carcillo

what's with the 5 goalies? do you play max games?

We do, Its the normal setting of 2 goalies and 164 games. Although, the settings in the league encourage playing all of your games, so thats a must. I start by getting "plus 10" in goalie games or so, then I can afford the option to bench my guys against good teams when needed and play the matchup game. I stock up on goaltending also because, odds are, 1 might suck, and/or 1 might get hurt, and I want the depth to absorb those blows. One last point is, goalies are always great trade bait, because someone is ALWAYS is in need. Its sort of a first half strategy, as I wont have that many goalies second half and beyond. And you can never have too much goaltending, imo.

iknowkungfu
10-03-2009, 10:39 AM
as far as i can tell your team looks alright if that's your strategy, i'd be a little worried about depth when someone gets hurt though, if any of your wingers or defense get hurt DTD you'll be losing games you won't be able to make up without dropping someone

You can't think of roto points as a a reflection of nightly results. Instead, all stats are cumulative over the course of the season. Points in each category represent your team's ranking compared to the rest of the league (check the "Full Standings" tab from your league page to see where you stand in each category). A team can have negative points if it drops in more categories or by more spots than it gains.

For example, let's say your team has 30 goals and 40 assists. Another team has 28 goals and 38 assists. On Saturday night your team scores 1 goals and 3 assists (bad night), and the other team scores 5 goals and 7 assists. That other team would pass you in the rankings in both categories, and assuming your ranking doesn't change in any other categories, you would have a -2 score for the night.

Again, since roto leagues are based on cumulative stats over the course of the entire season, you really have to be patient. You're probably seeing some crazy swings in points right now, but as the stats accumulate, things will become more stable.

It depends on if +/- is going to kill you. I think Kaberle will probably get a fair bit of points but you also might want to consider Grebeshkov while Souray is out. He's been manning the point on the powerplay and tends to shoot more than Kaberle does.

in his last 2 games he's been in on 2 goals with parise and langenbruner, dobber line combos has him spending 10% of his season's shifts with parise and langenbruner (which sounds about right after 4-5 games on the 3rd line)

While Dubinsky is on pace to have a better year than last year, it's not like he's leading the league in scoring. His value is higher now than it would have been prior to the season, but I don't think you'll be able to move him for an underperforming veteran of any significance.

Do I use a waiver on Brad Boyes in my Team 2? I'd drop Johnson knowing I have Pronger, Gonchar and Markov for 2 spots when all 3 are healthy? Gonchar isn't going on IR any time soon it seems and I was going to pick up McDonald, but now Boyes has been dropped. There is plenty on the waiver wire though: Franzen (IR), McDonald, Tkachuk, Kariya, Pominville, Horton, etc. so I don't know if he'll go through. It seems nobody wants St. Louis players for some reason - I think they're just in a slump and they're a playoff team this year.

EDIT: I have two IR spots, one is being used on Markov. Do I stash Franzen by dropping Johnson, then pick up Boyes with my open spot?

Does your reasoning change if I only have 15 moves for the season and have already used up 4? If I do pick up Franzen, and then have to put one of my current players on IR, I'd have to drop someone to pick them up later, wasting further moves?

I think you stand pat on that one. You give the best player in the deal.


Background: League owners pretty much draft & hold their guys. Some trading but not much. For the most part people are savvy enough to not drop super-quality players. Last year the guy who had the #1 waiver priority didn't get to use it. Now I have that spot.

Boewmeester was dropped. Do I burn my #1 priority to scoop him up? I already have three offers out right now trying to sell high on Del Zotto.

Peverley and JVR are still FAs in my league...are they an upgrade over Selanne or Boyes?

This is for Team 1...

I'm also thinking I could grab Hossa and add then add Peverley/JVR

Lemelin is Pulgasari
11-09-2009, 01:58 PM
To the above poster: with 8 max moves, I don't think I'd be making a move for JVR or Peverley. But you mentioned picking up Hossa. If he's a FA, I'd find a way to get him on your team. I might drop Gionta before the others, though.

Now here's my question... for team 2 in sig, do I drop Rinne for Gustavsson? I think most of you have already given up on Rinne, but up to this point I haven't liked any of the other FA options, so I chose to wait it out and hope his numbers improved and/or he won the #1 job. His numbers have gotten better, but I feel like I'm just waiting for him to fail again, and Ellis is still getting starts when he falters. I'm currently sitting 8th out of 10 teams, and goalies are my glaring weak spot.

gogoayane
11-09-2009, 02:48 PM
I would make the move and drop Rinne for Gustavsson - watching a few leafs games, I must say when Gustavsson is in net, the whole team gains confidence and has been playing pretty well. I don't this Gustavsson's stat will move around too much and should be around 2GAA on average.

My question:

I was offered Thornton for Kovalchuk / JVR - but I also own Pavelski... should I make the trade? This opens up a spot for me to actiavte someone from IR.

Lemelin is Pulgasari
11-09-2009, 04:18 PM
Thanks for the response.

If you're the one getting Thornton, I'd rather stand pat and wait out the Kovalchuk injury. It depends on what your stats are and what positions you're hurting at, but goals are tougher to come by than assists, and elite wingers rarer than elite centers.

Who would you be activating, what's your roster, and what stat categories count?

Very true, but he's a Western LWer and he's SADLY my only source of PIMs atm. JVR on the other hand is Eastern so most of his games will fall on the same night as Kovy/Camm...ughhhhhhh..

If MK cleared waivers, why not sit and wait to see what he can do? Antropov w/ Kovy back is much much better....

Lemelin is Pulgasari
11-10-2009, 06:09 PM
If you start McLeod on Kovy/Camm off-nights, you're going to be taking games away from them because of the 82 game max. Are there any decent goon D-men on FA who could get you some PIMs? I feel like it's easier to 'waste' games at D in roto, as opposed to at a forward slot.

He's also considering JVR, Liles for Lidstrom which would save me a drop and allow me to keep McLeod for PIM :D.

He's playing the "give me some time to think about this, let me explore other options" waiting game and I'm an impatient bastard.

He likes the JVR, Liles for Lidstrom deal most (so do I) but I have a bad, bad feeling that Lidstrom will heat up sooner rather than later.

Should I just offer Cammaleri, JVR, Liles for Morrow, Lidstrom (surely he won't think twice about it?) rather than play the waiting game? JVR was a FA pickup and Liles was a throw in in another deal so really, I'm only giving up Camm...

I'd probably do that offer myself, but I have a huge man-crush on Lidstrom anyway. I think Cammalleri + JvR for Morrow isn't too bad of a loss if a loss at all but Liles to Lidstrom is an amazing upgrade.

Ok. i got it, new to the Quick question thread..Give an answer to get an answer, fair enough.

ch, you got a tough decision there. Too bad the days weren't switched. With Hossa back, Toews becomes that more dangerous. Detroit doesn't seem to have much going for them. Although if they do Zetterberg is almost always involved whereas Chicago is super deep. Personally i would go with Zetterberg on Friday and Toews on Saturday.

Thx Kaboom. I'm leaning towards Toews both nights just because DET/Zetts have been terrible offensively the past few gms, Toews has been lighting it up, Kip has a great road record, I like both CHI's matchups better, and getting Hossa back is a huge boost to CHI's offence. Just wanted to see what others had to say before I go ahead and start Toews, in case somebody mentioned something I hadn't thought of, but I really appreciate the input, so thx!

I think yoru ok on goalies. Can't blame Nabokov because three of those goals were breakaways. If you were going to I would think about dumping Havlat. He's injured again I think and is not doing much anyway.

Yeah, I just dropped him last week for Brown and am very happy with that move. It sucked because he was my only Sens player and I'm a huge Sens fan but the move had to be made. So annoying when players are kept based on name only, he should not be 75% owned still. Kyle freaking Brodziak has as many points as him.

Depends on how EJ responds to getting benched. I'd give it a game or two after the benching to see how the youngster reacts. Otherwise, McCabe is a solid option especially since FLA is playing much better as of late.


Who should I scoop up and stash on IR as Varlamov is coming back soon: Franzen or Emery?

Other than when we have a goalie on IR, we can only roster 2 at any given time. Is Emery a better option than Varly? Will Franzen be back in time to help during the Fantasy season/playoffs?
