Other than Henrique and Kulikov I would use caution making a change for any of the other players you listed. Rookies look sexy on paper but not all of them turn out. At least in the short term. More often than not these players take a season or two to cut their teeth and take a solid position on a team.

Henrique did prove he is a key player for the Devils and will have an even bigger opportunity with the departure of Parise in NJ. Kulikov has stepped up with back to back 20+ assist seasons very early in his career. His 104 shots last year tell me he is getting PP time and I think that FLA is going to continue to surprise.

The longshots on your list would be Ellis and O'Reilly. Ellis will have a crack to play more with Suter out of the mix. If he finds a way to play along side Weber, he will be an absolute gem of a pick-up. O'Reilly did break out with 55 pts after two season of less than 30. However I think his stats will depend on how well Stastny and/Or Duchene play (who ever is centre on O'Reilly's line)

The rest of those players I would rest on. I still like P Stastny's game although I see him being a 60-70 pt guy more than a 70-80 pt guy. Leino you can dump at any timeas I find him to be very over-rated. Okaposo plays on a team with wonderful offensive abilities through the middle that he will reap the benefits of.


Without knowing the details of your league, that would be my 2 cents.

Daniel Alfredsson is the MVP of the universe. All hail the Ottawa Senators!!!!!

I wouldn't hesitate to pick up Ellis. On o'reilly .... He is centre for his line. The avs roll three centers. Duchene will be 1st line center assuming he bounces back from a brutal injury plagued season, stastny will center the second line, leaving o'reilly as the penalty killing defensive shutdown type specialist. I wouldn't pick up o'reilly unless stastny is traded - which I don't see happening soon, at least this offseason. O'reilly benefitted from playing with Landeskog - he may not have that luxury as Landeskog has shown he can play in a top line offensive role which I dont see o'reilly capable of. I just dont see o'reilly getting more than 55 points in his current role. However, if at any point he becomes the 2nd line center I would say go for it

Well I stand corrected. Bot sure why but I though O'Reilly was a left winger. My bad. Looks like his jump in production as based on Duchene's injury last year. I would not shy away from him but I wouldn't put him near the top of my pick up list.

Certainly not over P Stastny and Okposo
