Im in a 12 team format of head to head and am currently second
a trade has been offered to me to trade price in order to get spezza this is my current team:

RW: Franzen, Hossa, Kotalik, Bernier
D:Burns,Vlasic, Hamrlik, Salo
G: Luongo, Brodeur, Price

the stat categories in the league are as this:
G, A, P, +/-, PPP, SHG, GWG, SOG, W, SV%, SHO
What are your thoughts?
long story short...
generally goalies I treat goalies like gold. In four different leagues, I drafted a goalie first round every single time. Goalies are worth two much. They contribute 40% of stats but make up usually 12-20% of your team. That's what makes them insanely valuable. but you already know that so I'll just get to my policy.
I generally like to take a goalie and consider him a full draft round above what he was drafted. So if a goalie goes mid to early third (like Price normally would) and a guy wants to trade an non-goalie for him, he better be a second round pick.
Spezza qualifies for that, and you have 2 of the leagues top three goalies, so I'd do this one. Your centers aren't exactly strong anyways.
I'd suggest picking up a goalie from FA or via another trade though. Doesn't have to be a star, but you want a consistant .905 save % at least... you'll need a few more wins because I don't think Vancouver will be insane this year and most teams hold 3 goalies regardless
No brainer, how many games would you use Price for anyway, I would however put another player in the deal, perhaps a third goalie or stalwart defenceman for Plekanec seeing as how you would probably be moving him to make room for Spetz. Just make sure that you don't cost the deal buy trying to get too much.
Definitely do it.. Or if you are that unsure that you're getting the "worse" end of the deal I would maybe toss in Kotalik or Bernier for a decent Dman of his since you look weak there.
You got the best goalies in the League though, that's huge. Good trading potential!!
i think carter is going to put up the best numbers at center for you this year, that being said i'd do it because spezza is a top level center for what is your third goalie.
maybe counter adding plek and trying to get one of his goalies if you are trying to rock with 3 goalies
