PICK UP OF THE WEEK

ANDREW COGLIANO
We like a lot of guys this week.   Morrow and Antropov in shallow leagues.  Stempniak, Mueller, Hecht in medium leagues.  And finally BozakSteen and Cogliano in shallow leagues.  Of those guys we think Cogliano might get overlooked most often... here's why he might help your squad:

Cogliano,andrewHe'll almost certainly be available in your league (owned in 2% of Y! leagues) and he's shown some talent in the past (45 points as a rookie 2007-08).  He's playing with Penner and Brule on the #1 unit and is even getting a bit more PP time lately (1:18 average last five games).  With the Oilers well and truly out of it, there's no reason the team won't throw Cogs into the deep end and see if he can swim.  So far, the water is very nice.

DROP OF THE WEEK

KEVIN BIEKSA
We were all ready to recommend you get rid of Flyers like FHS favourite Giroux and JVR but with Carter's injury we'd give them another look.  But they really haven't been getting the job done lately.

Also all Penguins only play only two games next week and the Predators only play two in the final week.  So don't be afraid to drop borderline guys like Erat, Hornqvist, Guerin, Kunitz, Staal, etc. on those two teams.

Bieksa,kevinBut our drop of the week is actually a favourite of ours... Kevin Bieksa.  We hate to do it because he's put up some monster 40+ seasons for us in the past but he's just not getting it done lately.  He has only two points in his last 14 games played (he missed 27 games with a leg injury during that stretch) and that's just not good enough for your team.  He could bounce back but we wouldn't want to put our whole season on the line to find out.  Find a replacement or at the very least give him a seat on your bench.
