more than half of those who said yes backed it up with a solid and more reasonable explanation plus its a great offer on your behalf because their are plenty of solid upcoming c's to replace horcoff as well as most of those who have said no cant back it up
in my opinion and easy choice to go with take the trade
It depends on who is available in free agency. If there is a capable player left, then I would absolutely do it. It also largely depends on the stats used in your pool (ie: PPG vs. PPP, etc) Here is a breakdown of why I would accept it:
Players you are giving up:
1. Jokinen: no knocks on him, only that he is playing on a young team that is pushing its rookies, thus decreasing Jokinen's ice time.
2. Horcoff has only ever seen one season of success, and that was playing along side hemsky and ryan smyth, one of whom is no longer there. He is a streaky player, who if doesn't produce, can be easily replaced by one of the young centres on the team (Gagner/Cogliano).
3, Garon: could easily lose his job to Dwayne Roloson. The defence in front of him is solid offensively, however, rather suspect defensively.
Players you get:
1. Datsyuk: Extremely solid offensively, especially now that he plays with Hossa. Won the Selke so you know he's solid defensively and will thus keep his +/- high.
2. Bryzgalov: solid goaltender who will face lots of shots, and no big risk of losing his job (Telqvist is his backup, he wasn't even good enough for Toronto).
