Thread: Playoff Push

  1. #1

    Playoff Push

    What do you guys think of this line up? Should I look for any other players?:
    Defense-Shea Weber, Brian Campbell, Mark Streit, Olver Ekman-Larsson

    Centers- Eric Staal, Jason Spezza, David Backes, Olli Jokinen, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins

    Forwards- Rick Nash, Patrick Sharp, Scott Hartnell, David Clarkson, Bryan Little

    Goalies- Tim Thomas, Corey Crawford

    Of course I don't start all of them at once but considering I am only allowed 4 D and 6 C/F's each night, I would like some insight.
    Thank You

    Depends on a lot of factors, such as:

    Size of League
    Stats applicable
    Players available
    How many moves you have left or are entitled to
    # of Bench players
    What type of league you are in (H2H Points vs H2H Standard vs H2H - 1 win)
    What round of the playoffs you are in

    Is this a keeper league? If so how many keepers?

    No keepers, however the winner of the league becomes commissioner of the following season and can add 1 change to the rules. Adding a keeper might be a rule that I may implement next season if I do win.

    What I did in my league was to look for teams that are pushing for a playoff push - (this was when I was in the semi-finals) and dropped my non keeper players and picked up someone who seems to be playing well now - ie Drew Stafford, Ennis, Chimera, ect....) I think the teams that are looking for that 7th / 8th spot are more likely to see fringe player get better. Buffalo was one team that I noticed this with.

    Just a thought but if you have the ability to win it all and you drop a D such as Ekman-Larsson, you may find that it helps you with targeting certain stats that you are not currently winning. if you are losing Goals - then drop someone and go for that Cat. It might just be the difference between winning or losing.
    This is what I did last week - and I am in the finals this week. It helped for sure.
