Why should you "veto" that? Explain.
It may be one sided, but maybe the guy with Sid has other good centres (which there are plenty of this year) and really needs a goalie.
I absolutely HATE the veto play. There are some managers and commish's that feel they need to micromanage the league and basically decide what every other GM is or isn't allowed to do.
Did the other GMs in the NHL "veto" it when Florida traded Luongo for Bertuzzi and a sack of pucks?
I would like to veto the veto. Unless the two teams are colluding to CHEAT there should be no veto. Period.
No veto. Really it isn't THAT uneven. Would it be more ok if it were Luongo or Brodeur? It's all opinion. Not to mention both were injured for long periods of time last year. Who wins then? The two teams involved decided it worked for them and commenced the trade. Why quash that?
Center is also by far the deepest positon in Fantasy hockey. Goalies...not so much. There aren't even 30 concrete starters. Yes Crosby is a top 3 pick, but Ward doesn't exactly suck every night. Allow the trade. If I were desperate for good goaltenders I might even consider this deal.
Depends entirely on league settings. If you have an equal number of offensive stats and goalie stats, it's not necessarily an evil deal
Think about it.
6 fowards (plus dmen) contibute to G,A,+/-,PIM
2 goalies contribute to W, GAA, save %, SO
Therefore, goalies naturally are more valuable than any other position.
If the guy with Crosby has two other very good centers and crap goalies, there is nothing wrong with it. He might be dumb (or not) for not trying to get another goalie, but it's not necessarily a rigged deal.
Vetos only should be used when allowing a trade to go through enables collusions between GMs, not to prevent an idiot from being fleeced.
