Everyone seems to think that if you keep adding snipers to the makeup of a team that it somehow means everyone is gonna get 100 pts...it never works like that, there are only so many goals to go around and having that much young offensive talent vying for ice time, PP time and scoring opportunities often hurts fantasy output more than it helps. Its often much better when you have just a couple go-to guys because you know they're getting all the PP time and quality chances and then you get complimentary guys skating with them who are the beneficiaries of it. (see Pascal Dupuis last season for example).
I think the best option on that list is Kovie, he consistently produces year in and year out and he is THE guy in NJ. After that probably St. Louis because he sets up Stamkos and then Eberle
Agreed with everything you said, except I voted St. Louis (for the reason you gave). Kovie would be my #2, but St Louis/Stamkos is so effing reliable. If Parise were still in NJ perhaps, but...
