Couture for OEL
Team is in sig. To even out the value of defencemen vs. forwards, the league assigns point for ice time, which translates to roughly an extra 30 points per full season for a 22.5 mpg d-man.
I have a young team, but lack a true #1 defenceman. I've asked about OEL, and the response came back Logan Couture. That seems more or less a fair deal, and given my lack of quality defenceman, it would seem to improve my team. Couture had 65 points last year to OEL's 61 (32 points + 29 ice time points).
18 team league, keep 12 plus *4 1st/2nd year players (16 total)
Points Only (w/ NHL salaries), start 8F/4D/1G
Note: Defencemen receive 1 point per 45 mins of ice time.
