Quick question:

Who would you rather have on your team, Setoguchi or MacArthur?

Setoguchi is younger, but has been a disappointment for a few years. He's starting on a line with Cullen and Granlund.

MacArthur is coming off a disappointing season after the surprising 60+ he put up. Lots of leafs fans speculate he has been bumped on the depth chart and will be a third liner.

Either way, which one would you rather have in your hockey pool?

Elias-Stamkos-Gaborik
Booth-Grabovski-Callahan
Higgins-Fisher-Burrows

Hamhuis-Bieksa
Garrison-Weber
Util - Seabrook

Luongo
Theodore

BENCH
Jones, Hansen, Neuvirth, Henrique (until injury resolved than will take Util. position if playing well.)

My league is a keeper league (5 players) and i currently have another 1st round pick in a trade of Elias for Lucic. I did this as soon as I heard the rumors Lucic may be somewhat out of shape.

I know my strong position is RW and D (which i went for a nice BC flare).

Currently I am trying for a trade with a member who needs a goalie desperately (Scrivens, Reimer, Lindback) and he is willing to give up D. Sedin for the right price so right now I am asking:

Sedin
Scrivens
1st
5th

for

Theodore
Henrique (his next weakest position is C and he has alot of NJ players.)
4th
7th

So what should be my next course of action? If I get Daniel, my LW becomes much stronger. If not I am going to have to do some scouting.

PS. 16 team league.

any ideas?

Bieksa had 44 points in 78 games last season with minimal PP time, Gardiner had a great first season, but if he is traded to Vancouver he may get less PP time. So.

Bieksa
Gardiner (unless traded)

Hey there, new around here. I did a draft yesterday with friends using Yahoo, but they completely altered the scoring categories.
Forwards/Defensemen Goals (G) 3.0 Assists (A) 2.0 Powerplay Goals (PPG) 2.0 Powerplay Assists (PPA) 1.0 Shorthanded Goals (SHG) 4.0 Game-Winning Goals (GWG) 1.0

Goaltender Wins (W) 3.0 Goals Against (GA) -1 Saves (SV) 0.2 Shutouts (SHO) 2.0

We get 2 C, 2 LW, 2 RW, 4 D, 2 G, 4 Benched, and my roster ended up as:

Tavares - C

Kane, P - C/RW
Hodgson - C/RW

Duchene - C/LW
Benn - C/LW
Richards, M - C/LW

Semin - LW/RW

Voracek - RW
Moulson - LW

Byfuglien - RW/D
Pietrangelo - D
Doughty - D
Ekman-Larsson - D
McDonagh - D

Rinne - G
Elliott - G

Any suggested changes to my team?

I was considering picking up Mike Green, playing Byfuglien as RW, and maybe dropping Hodgson. There are a lot of available FA (Krejci, Stastny, Carter, Plekanec, M Koivu, Green, Voynov, Hedman, E Johnson) because its only a 10-team league.

Thanks for any and all help! ::D

I've got Dustin Brown and Anze Kopitar, and another player is agressively pursuing them. The main players they have are Zetterberg, Seiguin, and Kreijci. And by agressively pursuing, I mean they're a die-hard Kings fan who wants to add them both to a team already with Doughty and Quick.

Why is like Yakupov the goalie

need to know this by today, does yahoo have a mobile site version to their hockey pool? And if so could I do all my drafting on my phone as well or do I have to do that on a computer and only change my roster/scratches on my phone?

How do I do the hockey pool on the canucks website, it seems like I have to join a group for my points to count. It won't let me join any groups, if they are invite only can I get to know ones that are willing to invite?

So I'm in a fantasy pool on yahoo with 1 bench... we have 2 goalies max and my bench player is a goalie too, would I be able to continually rotate the 3 goalies without a max switch limit? s

My league rules state "Max Acquisitions - 12" but I don't believe that affects it.. just wondering as I would assume this is the best way to use a bench to rack up points :P Any help is appreciated!

Hey I need your help. I was offered Hodgson for Granlund in my fantasy league. The stats that count are G, A, +/-, PPP, PMS, and SOG. Should I accept? Also it's just a one season thing. And someone else offered me Faulk, for Ellis. I was thinking yes to the Hodgson, and no to Faulk?

Okay I need an opinion here. I need to bring Kopitar of the IR and need to waive someone. Pretty much every stat counts (including faceoff wins, +/-, PPP, SHP, SOG).

Out of these 4 who do you waive?

Cody Hodgson
Alex Burrows
Matt Moulson
Patrik Elias

I'm leading towards Burrows or Moulson.

In my league we are allowed to drop one player right now.

I could either drop Subban and pick up a new D like Hamilton or Vlasic.

or

I could drop Yakupov and get a guy like Tarasenko.

or

Drop Holtby and pick up Halak (leaning towards this one)

Thoughts?

Should I think about waiving David Backes? He's been completely useless point-wise. If so, would Jeff Carter be a good replacement?
