Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
Here's my team in a 12 team league. Scoring is (G,A,+/-,PIM, PPP, W, GAA, Save%, SHO).
Getzlaf, Briere, Arnott (C)
Heatley, Kostitsyn (LW)
Kovalev, Bouchard (RW)
Chara, McCabe, Burns, Rozsival (D)
Huet, Biron (G)
BN - Huselius (LW), Cole (RW/LW), Budaj (G)
Here are some of the guys on FA or W that are rated higher than my lowest guy in position on either Yahoo, TSN or some other list.
RW - Sykora, Knuble, Guerin, Bertuzzi, Ladd, Downie
LW - Demitra (W), J. Staal, Sturm (W), Stillman, Burrows
D - J. Johnson, Enstrom, Letang, Seabrook (W), Ballard
I'm also working on a trade for Huselius and Budaj for a better goalie (like Ward).
Any suggestions or comments?
first off, you need better centers and goaltending. And DONT go for ward. he is doing horrible, and there is a lot better goalies that you can get with budaj and huselius. Try for dipietro, price, or backstrom.
Well, after the McCabe report, I went ahead and swapped him out for Letang. I had a hard time deciding between Letang, Jack Johnson and Enstrom. The other two are still available.
Thanks for everyone's advice. I'm still hoping to pick up a better goalie so I don't think I'll swap out Huselius for Demitra as he doesn't seem to have any better trading potential in my league. I've got him on my watch list, along with Knuble.
Any thoughts on who I could get with a Huselius/Budaj trade?
I'm high on Demitra, that's really about it.
I wouldn't bother going after Ward though because he won't fetch you the GAA or save % categories. Probably not many shutouts either. I would look at another goalie to trade up for.
Your D is A1, no worries there
Of the rest Knuble and/or Demitra
Knuble will havea bunch of help with phily this year Carter, Lupoll, Briere , Gagne ( healthy) an mobile back end except hatcher.
Demitra is a great ass't man on re-vamped Nucs. He plays both C and LW and will be setting up Mason "Lightning" Raymond and Pyatt. Look for Raymond to put up 30 and Py's another 20-30. You do the numbers, he shoul dbe good for 40-55 ass'ts and be a plus player under Nuc system

So do you swap out Cole and Huselius for Knuble and Demitra or do you hold on to Huselius for his trade potential? Also, Demitra doesn't clear waivers until Sunday and I'm 8th on the list.
I've been struggling with Cole vs. Knuble for awhile and I could have picked up Knuble when I took Cole.

I'm not keen about swapping out McCabe for one of these guys, but what about adding him in a trade for a better goalie and then picking up one of them (or someone else in the trade).
Something like, McCabe and Budaj for Ward and Kubina?
