Fair enough man,
I haven't seen as many Flyers games as I would have liked to, hopefully they give me a chance to see a few more ... usually when I watch Flyers games I only keep an eye out for Leino and Carter cuz I owned those guys this year but I'm going to keep an eye out on Giroux from now on.
Thanks for the explanation. I'm inexperienced with keeper leagues, Usually when I post I make sure that the OP knows that I'm not as experienced as most of the other guys on the boards, but I thought that Kovalchuk was a better keep just because Giroux would be easier to re-draft and Kovalchuk may garner more value in a trade. On top of that there's always the chance he returns to form (although your explanation may have questioned that).
I was thinking that he could line with Elias and Tedenby. I know Elias is starting to get older, but Kovalchuk hasn't really needed someone to help him create his own scoring chances. If anything I thought being bumped to the 2nd line would help him because the other teams #1 defense line would have to cover the ZZ line.
I guess time will tell, but I appreciate you helping me out. If you ever see any of my posts and you feel that there's something that I'm missing feel free to let me know, I don't take offence to it I appreciate it.
This talk about Kovalchuk vs. Giroux and how strongly people feel that Giroux > Kovalchuk has really made me reconsider my choice.
Could you explain to me why so many people think Giroux? Am I undervaluing Giroux or overvaluing Kovalchuk (or both) because I still feel that Kovalchuk is an elite option.
