View Full Version : Steckel - The value of faceoffs
10-24-2011, 10:28 PM
So do you guys that use face-offs won or face-off % all have Steckel on your rosters? I don't have that category but I was doing some research and apparently he is considered to be the best in the league. He is also helping in hits and SOG and has even scored a goal in his last 3 games. Just thought I'd bring it up!

Since my league has 4 Util spots to play every day, I usually just try to have as many Bench/Util skaters as possible be centers. Having more guys take faceoffs usually guarantees a win, even if they don't have a great %.

If Steckel starts to produce more points he'll be excellent, but I'd rather have a guy who will get me 3-5 points in a week and get me 40 draws than a guy who will get me 1 or 2 points in a week and get me 60 draws. Being in the Toronto viewing area however and liking the team as well I have been watching him, and that last 2 games he has been used more in situations where he could start racking up a few more points. He's on my watch list. The solution for me (FW, not F%) is to have people using winger slots who also take draws. Teemu pushed me over the edge last week with his 6 FW, a stat that I won by 3.
