Best bet rookie

Currently in an email draft for my hockey keeper league. Next pick coming up. Deciding between Brayden Schenn, Landeskog, or Niederrieter. Open to suggestions other than those three. Keeper rules mean I would weigh current production over long term.

Any advice out there in Razzball hockey land?

If you want the cooler name take Nino Niederrieter, but I'd have to go with Brayden Schenn.. As of right now I think he'll be the Flyers #3 center behind Giroux and Briere, but we all know how brittle Briere can be so it wouldn't be a shock to see Schenn eventually getting 15-17 minutes on the #2 line eventually. And long term his upside is better than both those other guys

Love Landeskogs game but not sure it translates over to fantasy hockey, specially rookie year...Schenn is a really good play who can either put up a Seguin kinda year...flashes but no consistancy, or be a skinner/ coutier year...Im leaning towards inbetween but prob better then seguin's rookie year due to more ice time and system. Not big on Nino...gross hands tho

I ended up drafting Schenn.

Team so far with 3 rounds left in slow email draft:
12-team H2H Keeper
C-Malkin*, Couture*
LW-Vanek, Burrows
* denotes keeper

Need to improve my D obviously.
