Who are my "young keepers"?
I am currently in second with a decent chance to win this year. In our league (details in signature) we each keep 3 players who have 164 games or less experience (100 for goalies). I have quite a few good players on my roster who could potentially fulfill this role. I'm hoping to trade a few to improve my core 12 this year, but so far nothing has panned out.
I'm hoping to get some rankings from you all to help me narrow down who to keep. Think 3 year window, but if someone is a longer term keeper feel free to point that out. Before the season started I thought the 3 would likely be Schenn, Tarasenko and Granlund, but Conacher has burst out of the gate, Brunner has impressed, and as a Senators fan Zibanejad has a chance to crack the top 3 because I do have a bit of a homer bias. Here are my options:
Schenn, Brayden C/LW
I'm anticipating many of you will rank Schneider highly, but keep in mind that in a 10 team league that starts only 1 goalie and counts only wins and SO, good goalies are always available.
I know there have been other threads about Tank, Granlund and Conacher, but nothing that compares them to Schenn.
Thanks in advance everyone. Answers that include good reasoning will be repped.
