Who should I keep?
I just bought a team in a running keeper league and I have to submit my list of keepers asap.
The team was in last place last year and will have first draft this year.
Rules of the league are:
Rosters: 2 centre, 2 LW, 2 RW, 3 D, 1 Utility (i.e. any position), 2 G, 4 Bench, 2 IR.
Scoring: Goals x 1.5, Assists x 1, Plus/Minus x 1, PIM x 0.2, PPP x1, Wins x 2, Losses x -1, Shutouts x 3, Saves x 0.05
I can protect 8 of the following:
I think the no-brainers are:
Who should I keep? Do I protect Kolzig as goalies are rare?
Who do I keep of the D-men: Ralfaski, Markov, and Zubov are about even?
How about forwards? Is Holmstrom, Erat or Bouchard worth protecting? Who would you chose and why?
Re:Who should I keep?
Bouchard would be the other 4.
If you need another d, keep zubov, even if just for one year

Re:Who should I keep?
Focus on youth - this team is not going to win it this year.
Draft young goalies like Price, Bernier, Harding.
Be prepared to trade Sykora, Rafalski, Zubov to a contending team this year for good young prospects and draft picks.
N Backstrom...goalie or the center? - either way a keeper
M Afinogenov...an enigma but worth it
R Getzlaf...young stud all star
S Zubov...power play on a good team
B Rafalski...power play on a really good team
P Sykora...possibly playing with Sid
A Hemsky...better than people think
M Lombardi...fast and slippery like a greased pig
