    Trade Questions

    I have been offered Rick Nash, Johan Hedberg, and Tyler Myers for Jonas Hiller and Sergei Gonchar. Would I be screwing myself in goal with this trade? I'm in a 12 player keeper league (2nd year). Lineup below.

    Sidney Crosby
    Ryan Kesler
    Mike Ribeiro
    Zach Parise
    Marco Sturm
    Thomas Vanek
    Rene Bourque
    Dustin Brown
    Brad Boyes
    Matt Carkner
    Ryan Suter
    Erik Johnson
    Sergei Gonchar
    Andy McDonald
    Alexander Frolov
    Brian Rafalski
    Milan Hejduk (IR)

    Jonas Hiller
    Mike Smith
    Pekka Rinne
    Ray Emery (IR)

    • don't do it. Hiller is far too valuable an asset to give away even if it is for rick nash, i mean.. he's playing on the jackets, no disrespect to nash but he can't do it all himself whereas hiller has a half decent team infront of him and is playing spectacular, gonchar on the other hand i'd say trade him at the beginning of next year before the retirement rumours surface.

    • I gotta say it depends on what you're aiming for. If this year is kind of a wash for you, then this trade could be worth it. Nash is a great keeper and so is Myers (future franchise defenceman and probably rookie of the year this year...may be more valuable than Gonchar as early as next year, definitely within two years).
      Obviously, Hiller's worth depends in part on your ability to snag another goalie in next year`s draft. That obviously would become a top priority for you since your goaltending is a little weak to begin with.
      If you're trying to place well this year, then I don't think your other goalies are good enough to make this trade, despite the gains up front.

    • i think you would be for sure. Atalanta really want Pavelac to be their goalie of the future, that is part of the reason why they traded away lehtonen a couple weeks ago. althoughhedberg has been hot lately pavelac will still be getting a good chunk of starts. nash would be a good addition but not worth it, gonchar is money and myers has been cold of late
