Fantasy Mailbag: Jack and Quinn Hughes, Chabot vs. McAvoy, High SH%, Keeping Goalies, Connor, Letang, Hedman & More

Rick Roos


Welcome back to another edition of the Roos Lets Loose monthly mailbag, where I answer your fantasy hockey questions by giving advice that should be useful to all poolies even if they don't own the specific players being discussed. As a reminder, if you want your fantasy hockey question(s) answered in the next mailbag, check out the end of the column, where I explain the ways to get it/them to me as well as the details you should provide when sending. The earlier you send a question the more likely it is to be included in the mailbag, and the deeper dive I can provide with my reply.

Question #1 (from DobberHockey Forums)

I'm in a 10 team, keep 24, H2H league with rosters of 4C, 4LW, 4RW, 6D, 2G, 4 Bench, 3IR, 1IR+, 2NA, and categories of G, A, +/-, PIM, PPP, SHP, GWG, SOG, FOW, HIT, BLK, GS, W, GA, GAA, SV, SV%, SHO. I think I have a good team but haven't won in a few years, mostly due to bad luck in H2H playoffs. Looking at my roster below, are there any areas where you think I should try to improve? You'll see I have 28 players listed, so another issue is I need to drop four. Who do you think those should be? To add another layer, there are some pretty good players who aren't owned right now, so it's possible for me to pick one or more of them up, so long as I end up with only 24 in total.

My current roster is:

C: Elias Pettersson, Quinton Byfield, Anton Lundell, Pierre-Luc Dubois, Mika Zibanejad, Marco Rossi
LW: Alexis Lafreniere, Trevor Zegras, Brady Tkachuk, Jack Hughes,
