    Loui Eriksson vs Tim Thomas

    I was just offered Tim Thomas for my Eriksson.... What would you do? Right now my goaltenders are Quick, Rinne and Cam Ward. It is a 1 year league... Goals, points, PPP, PIM, save%, wins and shutouts count

      • Hi Paul,

        Pretty difficult to say, since I don't know how many BN slots you have, and what options of RW FA are out there, since you will need to pick up a RW if you trade for a G.

        From the looks of it, it seems like your league is pretty big, or else your G would look so thin, and others wouldn't trade you a starting G for a 2nd rank RW straight up.

        If you think you can get someone decent with Ward, then I would do this trade. Ward and Thomas are in similar situation and both are risky choices, with Thomas having a slight edge since Bruins' D > Canes' D. So make sure you try to sell Ward before you pull the trade.

        Better yet, counter a deal to swap G, and get a RW in return, probably the other guy will offer you someone significantly lower than Eriksson, but still you will have a safer trade than doing two separate trades.

        Last advice, if you are willing to part with Eriksson, try to pitch it to another player first, but I seriously doubt you will get any starter G higher than Thomas. Tell me more about what other FA Goalies are available if you need more help.

        Cheers,

        Howard
