    Quick poll for an injury replacement pickup

    Post by wprager on Sun Oct 19, 2008 10:18 pm

    Thanks to Yahoo's auto-picker I got Sundin and Sullivan. I was graciously allowed to swap one of them and I'm picking Sullivan. Now I need to find a replacement forward. The leading candidates (based on the first week's worth of stats) are the names in the poll.

    Which one would you take, and why?

    Miettinen - showed good flashes last year and looks to be taking the next step.

    I was kind of leaning that way myself. In fact I picked up Latendresse in the GM Central Pool (the one with the rotisserie style scoring). Of course at that time I didn't even know about Voros and Miettinen. Decisions, decisions.

    I voted Miettinen. He got some good time on a line with Ribeiro and Morrow in Dallas last year and was putting up a PPG for a while when I had him in my pool.

    Are your scoring categories standard Yahoo? I.e., with PIM and SOG, etc.? And what are your team's needs -- G, A, PIM, etc.? It's hard to answer without knowing these things.

    However: in general, I'd say Miettinen and Booth are the safest picks, long term. Little is a very interesting dark horse pick -- someone's got to play with Kovalchuk, after all -- but not the safest. Voros can be a great points/PIM pick up -- I used him extensively last year when Avery got injured -- but he's streaky and everything depends on his line assignment. Latendresse is not even worth a look, IMO: MTL is way too deep for him to get any quality time in the top 6 / on the PP, and he's been in and out of Charboneau's doghouse for the last 2 years.

    Yeah I said Little... If he stays healthy, no reason why he won't stay with Kovalchuk.... easy points...

    Then I'd say Miettinen or Booth. Either guy should net you a safe 40-50 points. Miettinen especially.

    What about Latendresse? If Kostitsyn's out any length of time his PP time will only go up.

    I think Kovalev, Plekanec, Koivu, Tanguay, Higgins, Lang, and even S. Kostitsyn are all ahead of Latendresse for top 6 / PP time. Even the best case scenario has
    Latendresse's worth depending on the health of another player, which makes him a very unstable pick in my mind.

    Miettinen and Booth are safer picks because they're going to be in the top / get PP time all year, and that's because they're teams are not as deep as MTL's. And that's why I'd go with one of them over Latendresse.

    I don't know very much about Booth.

    I dumped Cam Barker and picked up Foligno. If Booth or Miettenin are available, would they be upgrades?

    Call me a homer, but I think I'll hold onto Foligno for now.

    I think you're going to be VERY happy with Foligno. Wink

    It was his first, and I think at least 20. I'll look into it.

    UPDATE: he played 45. I was way off.
