In 2nd place. Long term V. Short
I am in a dog fight at the moment. (Sorry it's a little long)
1st place is 10 points ahead of me in yahoo-Roto;
cats are G,A,+/-, Pim, PPP, GWG,Shots, GAA,Wins, SV%, Shutouts.
We keep 10 + 1 rookie.
I am currently in 2nd place
3rd place 3 points back;
4th place 4.5 back
5th 7.5 back.
My team is Malkin (IR), Whitney (IR) Datysuk, Neal, Duchene, Skinner, Clarkson, M. Koivu, Burrows, RNH, Yakupov, Plekanec, Tootoo; Dupuis (B), Little (B),
D= Byfuglien, Shattenkirk, Edler, Hedman, Voyno, Diaz (IR), White(B)
Goaliles= Lehtonen, Neimi, Broduer.
Offer on the table is :
"One of my young guns" (we haven't talked about which)
Thornton, St. Louis,Lubo Visnosky.
I can't decide if this deal is worth the risk of losing a long term stud.
We keep 10 + 1 rookie every year.
So my keeper list potentials are:
Malkin, Neal, Datsyuk, Duchene, Skinner, Clarkson, RNH, Yakupov (R)
Shatternkirk, Edler, Byfuglien,
I am going to lose two of the above for nothing in the off season anyway (right now i am leaning towards Clarkson, Edler, Lehtonen)
WILL RNH/YAkupov Pick it up this season? Even a little bit?
---RNH- Is shooting much more than he did last year; but every game i watch he is always the 3rd assist... Watching him play; he is well ahead of his years...-- he is already playing an amazing two game; he is the 1st person back playing defense and 1st one in the offense zone... He will be a perfect replacement for Datysuk (IMO)---
Yakupov is playing well- but getting no quality minutes and still putting up respectable numbers.
CURRENT LEAGUE OVERVIEW:
him and Yakupov are holding my team back in the extremely competitive categories (5 GMs are separated by 4 PPP) ; 21 shots separate 6 GMs; 1 goal separates 5 GM's; +5 seperates another 5 gm's; 6 PIMS separates 3; and 3 GWG's seperate 9 GM's; Goalie stats are just as competitive-- but trying to pick off an elite goalie in my league is next to impossible. (It took lindback +3rd to get Broduer)
I had lost: Malkin, Duchene, Skinner, Bfuglien, Whitney, Diaz, Broduer, Lehtonen to injuries (which is partly why my competition was able to cut into my league)
Would you sell one of these assets now? Or stick with what you got and sell off other pieces in the off season?
TY in advance.
