    fair counter offer?

    20 team roto keeper league
    I'm looking to strengthen my D
    11 Forwards 6 D men 1 Goalie 4 bench

    I offered jason blake for ryan suter

    then I received a counter offer

    Khabilbulin and Jamal Mayars for Mikko Koivu and Dubinsky
    (I thought this was a terrible offer)
    1. I don't want/need a goalie, khabi isn't a starter
    2. Mayers is fairly useless in my league

    So I'm thinking of offering Koivu and Dubinsky for Paveskli and Suter.

    Fair?

    • and yeah, I don't know why I said Koivu was my 5th forward.....he's definitely closer to 8 or 9th

    • I think your getting red herringed - the other guy wants Koivu make him pay for the privilege. Forget Suter and Pavalski tel him you want the equivalent of on the low side Seabrook on the high side Corvo - if he has a 40 point D with at least 50 PIMS thats the guy you want, no messing around.

      • well Suter is projected to score 35 Pts and 70 PIM this year.....

        and Koivu is probably my 5th best forward...
        Suter would be one of my top 2 defencemen if the trade went through

        The thing is, our league is massive
        480 players were drafted....so even a guy like pavelski is valuable.

        For example, the best forwards available on waivers are Conroy, Tootoo, axelsson, maltby ....

        best defenders on waivers are clark, cullimore, sydor

        Since I'm so weak on D, I kind of think it would be worth it to trade one of my lower ranked Forwards to strengthen it.

        My forwards are
        Hossa
        Backstrom
        Parise
        Stamkos
        M Koivu
        Huselius
        Ktachuk
        Frolov
        Demitra
        Blake
        Langenbrunner
        Dubinsky
        S Kozlov
        J Stoll

        But my defense looks like this
        Poti
        Foote
        Bouillon
        Vlasic
        Regehr
        Jackman
        Stralman
        Wisnewski on the IR

        His forwards look like this
        Vanek
        Semin
        Drury
        Dumont
        Smyth
        Kessel
        Neil
        Pavelski
        Clark
        Belanger
        Kelly
        Pisani

        and his D
        Pronger
        Suter
        Chara
        Kuba
        Obrien
        Phillips
        Hedja

        My forwards are so much more dominant, but his defense is so much better. My team is far too lopsided.
