Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
10 teams, H2H, Non Keeper
G, A, +/-, PIM, PPP, SOG, W, GAA, SV%, SO
We start 2 C, 2 LW, 2 RW, 2 F, 4 D and 2 G
My team :
C: Crosby, Langkow, Mueller, Brind'Amour
LW: Vanek, Semin, Kunitz, Higgins, Whitney
RW: St. Louis, Horton, Zherdev
D: Niedermayer, Kronwall, Bieksa, Enstrom, Blake
G: Kiprusoff, Osgood, Vokoun
I give Osgood and Kunitz
I get Staal and DiPietro (or Lehtonen???)
Good trade for me? Would you do it?
Should I give Higgins or Ray Whitney instead of Kunitz?
I reneg my comment, you don't really need another goalie, your goalie's are fine right now. Staal for Kunitz would be a more fair trade for keeping your team the most competitive but that would just dump another center on you which isnt' something you need.
I would keep him, he's a great player who is getting better each year. Kunitz will be missed on your roster since you have to play each position. If this was a 6FWD league I would say do the trade, but Osgoode will be fine, might want to look into picking up a third goalie since he won't be getting a lot of starts. Khabibulin is on the trading block bigtime right now and if he's available it might be worth taking a hold of him for the time being.
hehe the other guy obviously wants Osgood. And I would not make this trade if I were you.
Also, Kunitz plays often on Sundays rather than Saturdays, so he is good to have in your team in order not to bench your 4th-5th LW.
By the way, with the names of your players and the number of teams in the league, your team seems weak...
Just a thought, and I haven't really thought this through the whole way, but you might consider offering Vokoun and Semin.
Vokoun might be enough to get you through if you were to trade Osgood. But then again, I'm not sure I trust Osgood to play as well as he did last year either. Regardless, what it boils down to is that you're going to end up having to take a few gambles and hope they work out for you.
I hate to say it, but I think you did a poor job of drafting.
I probably wouldn't make the trade. You're going to probably have to rely on goaltending if you're going to make an impact in the league. But, you could definitely use a better second center. You could also use a better second right wing.
Tough position to be in.

Depends on the scoring, but you're trading a goaltender on a team that has a high chance of winning its conference for a goaltender on a team that will be battling for the basement. I'm not a big fan of that part of the deal.
As for Kunitz for Staal (assuming you mean Eric), it seems like you need more help on the right wing as opposed to center.
Personally, I'm not a big fan of the trade, and I wouldn't make it if it was offered to me.
