Yahoo league trade
« on: October 12, 2011, 08:18:57 PM »
I'm stuck trying to decide which group I'd rather have between

D. Kieth

or Kopitar

Kopitar is obviously the best player, but visnovsky got 68 points last year, and Vokoun, if he stays the starter, should be in for an all-star year.  Who would you prefer?

kopitar is miles above spezza but vokun is really good, that being said Michal Neuvirth started the season opener so there could be some controversey in goal.  I think Vis will be good but he won't repeat his numbers from last year, probably at least 50 points though.  Duncan Keith is a little bit overated as well but at the same time I would be reluctant to put stock into Phaneuf and Liles.

Really it depends on if you think Halak is an adaquete option for you in net imo.

I'd go with the Kopitar group. If your leauge counts +\- Spezza could be a huge minus.

Besides that, I think you win fantasy pools with forwards and goaltending. Clearly Kopitar is better than Spezza and I think Halak and Vokoun have equal risk/reward. I'd even give Halak the edge there.

The other deal has you beat on D but there's a reason not many D are taken in early fantasy rounds.
