A couple moves to solidify?


I am the kind of person who is always swapping players, and it led me to win my pool last year, but I feel myself slowly running out of guys I'm willing to drop. This isn't a bad thing, but there are a couple of guys out there on the wire that I really think I should get. I need a bit of advice on whether plans are good and not just more add/drop craziness. The players on the wire right now are Clark McArthur (clearing waivers tomorrow) and Killorn (clearing waivers on Sunday).

Here is my team (12 team pool):
G,A,+/-,PIM,PPP,SOG,HIT / W,GAA,SV,SV% (all weighted equally)

C - Eric Staal
C - Martin Hanzal
C - Mathieu Perrault (first to drop)
C, LW - Tomas Hertl
C, LW - Jonathan Huberdeau (just picked up)
LW - Zach Parise
LW - Matt Moulson
LW - Daniel Sedin
LW - Jiri Hudlr
RW - Phil Kessel
RW - Jordan Eberle
RW -- Nail Yakupov (picked up off waivers a while ago with high hopes)
D - Alex Pietrangelo
D - Tobias Enstrom
D - Alex Edler
D - Torey Krug
D - Radko Gudas
D - (empty slot)

IR - Steve Downie (LW/RW)

G - Ryan Miller
G - Josh Harding
G - Robin Lehner

IR - Cam Ward

Unfotunately, my team was autodrafted for the first few rounds because I couldn't get proper internet at the time, and so my team went very F heavy and left me with 5th round + picks for defence and goalies (later traded RNH for Miller). My team is in 3rd place right now, and should probably be first by the end of this week's matchup the way it is looking. Also, I know I am very C and LW heavy right now, which I am trying to change through a fair LW for RW trade, or something. Or is Havlat worth having more than Hertl, as I've been told? I don't buy it, yet.


1. If Downie is ready for Saturday night as suggested, I need to drop someone. I'm really leaning toward Yakupov because he really isn't proving anything from what I can see (-1 last night with no shots or hits or anything, and that wasn't even a surprise).

2. I am thinking of dropping Mathieu Perrault (C) for Killorn (C,LW). That's no problem for me, unless the Yakupov thing is a bad idea. Then Downie would take this place.

3. I really, really want Clark MacArthur (LW), as he is getting top minutes on what is Ottawa's best line right now (Turris, Ryan). Also, I am an Ottawa fan and wasn't able to get my top Ottawa guys because of autodraft (for better or worse, whatever). But who do I drop? I am thinking it has to be Jonathan Huberdeau. But he has clocked 3 assists in 3 games and is maybe turning it around? So this leads to two Qs:

I. MacArthur or Killorn?
II. MacArthur or Huberdeau?

Appreciate the help, and any other comments about anything else you think of.
