Fantasy League help

Hey guys, I just joined a fantasy hockey league, it started two years ago. It's a keeper league which means that this fantasy hockey team can keep going for 10 years or so, and you have the same team that you drafted the first year. Obviously people made trades and signed players. Now here's the thing I wasn't in this fantasy league when it first started, I just took over a team, and I have some bad players. Now I know a lot about hockey, but so do you guys, this is where I need your help. I need to know who you guys think I should pick up, even if it's a prospect that won't play for another year or so.

Those are all the rosters, and yes I know my team sucks this is why I am asking for help. So if you know any prospects that haven't been selected yet let me know, or you think a player is going to break out this season and hasn't been picked yet, let me know.

Hopefully you guys can help me.

Well my best advice would be try and package some of your players into one deal so if a team wants one of the guys they'll need to take a couple. Like I see for example Raycroft , Tanguay , Sykora and a couple others who could easily be delt off. Attempt to add a bit for the future but add some things for the present. Look into guys like Getzlaf , Cole and im going to on a limb and say Bertuzzi. I mean those guys might be a bit easier to get and they can for sure help your team out and you might be lucky and land them for not a lot of talent.

I know I can make trades, but right now I am trying to pick up players that aren't on any rosters. I'm sure that there's some players that could help me in many ways, that no one knows about or has on their rosters. That's why I need your guys help. Is there someone that you can think of that is not on any rosters?

No I don't, basically the free agents are all the players that aren't on any of those rosters, I know this is very complicated, but if you could carefully look at those rosters, and see if theres someone you see that is not on that list, and if I think he would be a good pick up I will drop someone and I'll pick him up.

Well I didn't see him and I don't know if he's there to sign but Steve Downie. I think despite how people think he's cheap he is one hell of a goal scorer and as well a physical player. Good mix for sure.

I don't see your team. I just joined a league of the same sort and I am taking over a POS team. Try to get Jaroslav Hlinka of the Avs. He is a rookie, but 30 years old coming over from the Czech league. He has done very well in training camp/preseason and will probably start out on the 2nd line alongside Paul Stastny and Milan Hejduk, a fellow Czech.

If I could see your team I'll try to give you a few ideas for trading.

My team is number 9, and right now like I said I am not really looking for trades. Umm about Jaroslav, are you sure that he cracked the line up, and I saw his numbers in Czech and there not all that good. So can you tell me more about him, and I might pick him up.

If your going to look to deal look into trying to get a younger guy like Andrew Ladd off team six. I don't think he'd cost an arm and a leg to speak and he's very talented on both ends of the ice.

Well his salary is only 600,000 K.

He plays for the Avs who will probably once again score the most goals in the West.

So far this preseason he has 0 G, 7 A, +3, 4 PIM.

He will be playing on the second line as well as killing penalties and see power play time.

It is a low risk high reward kind of thing.
