Are the other managers in your league retarded? How do you have 4 of the best 6 players in the league(Crosby/Malkin/Tavares/Giroux), arguably 2 of the best 6 d-men, and the best goalie lol
My league is strong... just a combination of shrewd drafting and clever trading. Short of giving you my draft and trade log (and it is fascinating because, man, did I inherit the most godawful team when I entered this league 12 years ago), I'll say the most important thing is knowing that, in order to get value you have to be prepared to give up value... which brings us back to this thread.
Giroux is worth more than what everyone here is suggesting. He's basically a lite version of Crosby and Chelios, rolled up into one.
p.s. What will really blow your mind is that I had Stamkos for the first two years of his career, as well... traded him away (again, to get value you have to be prepared to give up value).
