I would be surprised to see MSL under 70. I see 75 ish points for the next few then calls it a career. I don't see him as a guy who hangs around past the point of being elite. Dobber had him at 83 points in the guide and provided this insight:
***** St. Louis took a puck off the face in practice in December, sustaining a lot of damage and costing him five games. It made
him angry. He had 22 points in 27 games before the injury, but 52 points in 50 games after. Yes, he finished at below a
point per game for the second time in six years, but his final 50 games say otherwise – at 37 he still has it, make no
Age is definitely a huge factor in our keeper league. Prospects are overvalued and vets severely undervalued. For example, a guy turned down MA Fleury and Kulikov 241 for McKinnon, and Ray Whitney, who finished tied for 12th overall in points, is valued slightly higher than a waiver wire guy.
