Who to drop? Among other things

I am in a one-year, 10-man Head-to-Head league that puts a premium on offense. Categories are: G, A, +/-, PPG, PPA, SOG, SHP. Goalie Categories are W, GAA, SV%, SO.

Here's my roster:

After a rough start, with players like E. Stall, Ryan Getzlaf, and even Martin St. Louis getting off rather slowly, I've managed to climb back into the middle of the pack by riding the waiver wire with Visnovsky's extra spot created by his IR stint. Well now he's back, and so too is Taylor Hall (I missed out on his two PPG's last night!!). So now I'm forced to make a tough decision. It's that all too familiar question: who to drop?

I'm torn between Dustin Brown, Erik Cole, Alexandre Burrows. Though I like the fact that they all have dual eligibility, I simply have to make to room for Taylor Hall . I feel as though Dustin Brown's value is compromised by that fact that my league doesn't count hits. And I think Burrow's lack of PP TOI could be leaking value too, though he does play on a line with the Sedins. And what do you make or Erik Cole? I know he has a spotty injury history, but he has been quite hot lately and has earned himself some time on the #1 Powerplay. But can he keep this up for much longer?

And while we're at it, how do you feel about my D? There are some interesting commodities out there on the waiver wire. Would Michael Del Zotto, Brent Seabrook, Tomas Kaberle, or Andrej Meszaros be upgrades? Or should I just stick with the D Corps I currently have going?

Last but not least, what do you think of the goaltending? Should I seek to upgrade? Do you like any potential trade targets? Cam Ward, Semyon Varlamov, Johan Hedberg, and Cory Schneider are all available on waivers.

Also, it looks like on Saturday that Price and Brodeur will be squaring off against each other. Any gut feeling on which of the two I should start in that game? I will most certainly be relying on getting that W, so I'm considering leaving them both in.
