    • In your case I would say you're good shape at C, but with all trades you would have to consider a few different factors. Who does he have on his team? You may be able to pull off something bigger. Maybe get a solid goalie out of it in a multi player trade.Mason is a bit of a wild card...he did struggle a little last year. I would at least try to replace my RW with someone decent. Like Kane and Plekanec for Z and ? . Maybe add Burns or another D man to try to pry a G. If you do not want to consider going that route...and just wanna stick with the trade as offered, I would say with your team, I would stay. I would try to grab a G off the wire though, maybe gamble, like BOB in Philly...or whoever is available. Just remember, you were the one offered the trade therefor you are the one with the power :)

    • You'd be crazy to make this trade. Kane is Top 3 for RWs in the league with arguments to be made for #1. Zetts is a great but you're already strong enough at C that you shouldn't make the sacrifice. Don't worry about Kane right now, he'll end up with 85-90 pts in the end. Zetts will end with about the same but the gap between your top C will be around 5-10 pts with Zajac and Richards and probably 20-25 pts (and that's optimistic) with Kane and Kopecky/Backes. Who would even replace Kane in this case?

    • Totally take the trade. Z is one of the best two way players in the league. Not only will he get you goals and assists, but his +/- will get you points too.
