Might keep Luongo over Halak if he ends up on a good team (Philly maybe? NOT TORONTO)- but I definitely need to keep a starting goalie since they won't be many left by next year's draft.
I don't know who to pick for 3rd keeper. I was thinking Neal, but last year was exceptional, and if he doesn't repeat this year then I have no idea who else I would choose. Its a tossup between Backstrom, Neal, Kopitar and Kesler, maybe even Benn if he puts up solid numbers this year.
You have some nice centers, but I would spread my 3 positionally and go with the LEAST riskiest commodities...
Tavares - C
Neal - W
Halak - G
Tavares is your best center. I love Benn, but Neal on Malkin's, wing with Neal's shot, is pretty darn close to a guarantee of getting a PPG winger which would likely be your most productive one. In a 12 team league, you have to keep a goalie. Personally, since you can't really gamble when keeping three, I'd keep Halak over Lu. You have NO IDEA where Lu goes. If it ends up being a team like Fla, that'd be garbage. You KNOW who Halak plays for. He has one of the most talented teams in the league to help him net Ws.
