Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
I have Lecavalier, Brind'amour, Jokinen, and Kopitar at Center. Heres the problem, TB, Car, and Fla all are in the same division and typically play eachother on common nights. They are all producing at Center but I cant play them all. Should I try trading Brind'amour for a LW or something? Maybe I could get Nash or someone like that.
Some guy actually offered me Kovalchuk for Lecavalier, its just that it seems like Lecavalier is a better player and I wasn't willing to give him up but since I need to dump a Center would it be a good idea?
Here's the rest of my team
Ovechkin, Semin, Prospal
Jagr, Kane, Justin Williams
McCabe, Kaberle, Timonen, Gonchar, Boyle (Still on IR cause I cant decide who to drop)

If it was me I'd do that trade. Why? Vinny is a tough guy to deal off your roster. But you gotta see how he fits on your roster.
1. I expect that they'll be around the same stats - 50+ goals, 95-100pts, 300+ shots on net.
2. Kov had some personal issues last year, if you remember at the beginning of the year. Plus he & Hartley didn;t see eye-to-eye and Hartley even moved Kov to the 4th line a few times. It's no coincidence that since Hartley left, he's got 6 goals & 5 assists in 7 games ... and 32 shots!! And 6 of those games have been road games.
3. He's LW, & a much better option that a streaky guy like Prospal.
i think you have a good point, not knowing you team or league it's hard to say what you'll get. but if you paired Brind'Amour with another decent player, you might get something good back, especially if you can match up and help fill another owners need in the process, to make the offer more attractive.
i doubt it you'll get Nash for Brind'Amour. Brind is getting old & he's a little frigile. But it doesn't hurt to try, some people are stupid.
This is why you should try drafting a winger over a center in the 1st couple of rounds. The question is what superstar can you get for Vinny? See if Ovechkin or Kovulchuk are available.
