Looking at those settings then clearly you focus on those that have the potential to give you the highest offensive production. I don't even consider PIM in this as much since it's one category of nine in a H2H league.
I like Zajac and I'd consider dropping Sullivan for him. Since you have two forward slots and two utility slots you can still use him, but perhaps more a bench filler especially if Carter, Lecavalier and Kesler (when healthy) are in there as well. But given that he should be PP1 I'd go for him, and trust him more than Sullivan. Vermette is intriguing since he could be the #1 centre both ES and PP but I like Zajac more than him.
Nobody else jumps out for the forwards.
I like EJ in there as well, dropping Salo.
All I've got...all I've got is insane!
