    Grading my Trades

    Just curious if i could get some opinions on trades i have made this season.

    trade 1. Traded away
    Varlamov free agent pick up, left me with Halak and Howard

    received
    Kessel

    Trade 2. Traded away
    Kessel
    Loui Erikson (ir) at the time.

    received
    Ladd and Giroux

    Trade 3. traded away
    Landeskog

    Recieved
    Vanek

    Team now consists of Giroux, Zetterburg, Ladd, Vanek, Perry, Ovi, Backes, Bozak, Kronwall, Franson, Halak, Howard, Gustovson

    current record 102 -40 - 23 Currently sitting in 1st. standard head to head scoriing,

    Still room for improvment or team is solid and should stick with for remained of season?

    • Solid, just keep an eye on hot streaky players that might be worth a whurl while theyre hot

    • Overall pretty good for you. Not sure I would have traded Varlamov for Kessel based on how well Varly has played this season, but I suppose hindsight is 20/20. Plus it let you make your second trade, which I really like - you definitely came out ahead on it. I also like your move for Vanek - definitely a scoring upgrade over Landeskog.

      Your forwards are great, the only thing I'd change is dropping Bozak and looking for a good multi-category player like Dubinsky. Defense is a bit wanting but I suppose it doesn't much matter with your forward firepower. Goaltending is definitely your weakness. Luckily for you Elliott hasn't played very well lately so Halak's still the #1 in STL, and Detroit's been struggling this season. I'd look to swap out one of the Wings' goalies for a starter on the FA list if available; alternatively make a trade for a top-shelf goalie. Find a guy who needs some scoring help and offer up one of your forwards for a stud goalie like Rask or Fleury.
