Fantasy Update: New Additions

I've got a quick update on the NHLToL fantasy hockey team if you're interested.

I added Scott Walker and Joffrey Lupul to the offense. Unfortunately though, idiot that I am, benched Lupul in favor of Martin Gelinas last night. Lupul was the only guy on my roster to get any points and every member of the team played last night. Disappointing.

But then I also benched Prospal for Staal last week and that came back to bite me as well when Prospal scored twice and Staal was a minus-2. I never claimed to be any good at this.

Anyway, I also added Pavel Kubina to the blue line and dropped Paul Mara. I also got rid of Steve Sullivan since it's anyone's guess as to when he'll actually be back. Plus I realized I had too many Predators on the team.

I've been reading your comments and I really appreciate the advice. Keep it coming.

I still feel like I need an upgrade on defense. I'm thinking about dumping Bieksa and/or Jovanovski. The top players available are Paul Mara, Roman Hamrlik, Tom Poti, Ruslan Salei, Jaroslav Spacek, and Brendan Witt. What do you think?

The team's currently 4th place in the 11-team league, 12 points behind the leader.
