I am pretty close in the peripheral stats with some of the top guys and need to put myself over the top. I think I am ok with offense on my team but it is more Hits / Blocks that I could possibly gain control of if I make the move I want to make. I need some insight as there is something pushing me not to do this.
This move involves the team in my signature. It is playoffs and there is 2.5 weeks left. All of the teams I am up against or may be up against are all around good and I don't think I can afford to try and gamble on sacrificing categories.
That being said, Goligoski has been an absolute bust for me since I traded for him. He doesn't contribute anything offensively anymore, he barely gets 1 hit a game (0.7) and doesn't do much for blocked shots. I think with my team below, I should have offense covered the rest of the way, as well goalies. My weak spot is hits and blocked shots. The best dman I can find that won't hurt my +/- is Brooks Orpik. he has been hitting a ton lately and gets a lot of blocked shots. He is obviously ranked much lower than Goligoski since he is a defensive defenseman. I will play Goligoski tonight, but I am thinking of adding Orpik the rest of the way. This will add 2 games to my sched this week and 1 next week and change nothing for the final week.
Does anyone think this is a bad idea? Does anyone have any other suggestions of a player I may be missing? I would like to make this move today if I can. I am looking for a healthy combination of +/-, blocked shots and hits.
Thanks for the help and sorry for the long winded thread.
