    Staal vs Gaborik

    Who do you prefer in a keeper:
    12 team, keep 8
    Stats: G, A, +/-, PIM, PPP
    Positions: C, C, LW, RW, W, W, UTIL, D, D, D, D

    Current keepers:
    C: Sid, Malkin, E Staal
    LW: Jamie Benn
    RW: Marian Hossa
    D: Byfuglien
    G: Luongo, Schneider

    Obviously C is the position of strength - I personally prefer Staal if positions are ignored (Probably the main reason is that I don't fully trust Gaborik's health still), however would it make sense to swap Staal for Gaborik anyways since it might be easier to find a third C than it would be to find winger depth?

    Based on this past seasons stats, Gabby is a more valuable player in your league by a fair amount. IMHO, RW got thin REALLY quick this year. The drop off from stud to ordinary was colossal. Considering your other two centers, I think you're on the right track and would find this move beneficial.

    I would also prefer keeping Gaborik over Staal but do you really have no better keeper than Schneider? I would focus on pairing him with Luongo in the draft.

    I don't like homer bias.

    Thanks, I think I'll go for it.
    As for Schneider - I don't expect to have him as one of my goalies come the fall. Figure though that I'll wait until I know where he and Luongo end up though before doing anything (If Vancouver manages to unload Luongo then I'll want to keep Schneider probably).
