With the trade deadline approaching in our league I am trying to decide who is movable and finalize my keepers for next season. We keep 8 plus one rookie(less than 100 games played)

As of today my for sure keepers are

Crosby
Backstrom (F)
Getzlaf
P.Kane
Tavares
Neal
Lundqvist
Schneider (Rookie)

So that leaves my 8th slot open. I had originally planned on keeping Niemi in that slot and be set in goal for next season. But after a few trades lately I have added a couple guys who are making me think about going a different direction.

Jordan Staal
Chris Stewart
Danny Briere

So it comes down to are any of these guys worth keeping over Niemi? I am leaning towards Staal but if sid comes back does he get bumped back down to third line minutes and line mates?

League Info below, ignore the players listed as I have not updated my roster.

Any input appreciated, thanks

definitely keep Niemi, no brainer. None of the three mentioned guys worth it comparing to what Niemi can give you

I would keep Niemi over any of the three in question.

Thanks for the replies.

Along the same vein would a trade of P.kane and j.staal for Gaborik be worth it? Assuming he is healty he should be an upgrade over kane in my 8th slot.

I personally prefer Kane, but cant blame you to prefer Gabo this year

I prefer Kane, especially in a keeper.
