    Rate this trade...

    This is a 12 team H2H league. I really needed to dump a RW, I'm short a LW, and wanted to upgrade my defense. Here is my team before the move.

    C - Lecavalier, H. Sedin, Jordan Staal(C,LW)
    LW - Naslund, Gagne
    RW - Hejduk, Pominville, Zherdev, Boyes
    D - Pronger, Byfuglien, Visnovsky, Boucher
    G - Brodeur, Fleury, DiPietro
    IR - Zubov

    I dealt Pominville and Byfuglien
    I got Antropov and S. Niedermayer

    I just dropped Jordan Staal and picked up N. Backstrom (the C... yes I don't know how he is a FA) and after my roster is updated I plan on dropping Antropov for a LW such as Hartnell or Bertuzzi. I may even gamble on Tkachuk hoping he gets LW eligibility soon.

    I know player for player I kinda screwed myself, but considering my situation how do you think I fared in this one?

    This will be my updated roster come Saturday:

    C - Lecavalier, H. Sedin, Backstrom
    LW - Naslund, Gagne, (one of these guys: Bertuzzi, Hartnell, Tkachuk?)
    RW - Hejduk, Zherdev, Boyes
    D - Pronger, S. Niedermayer, Visnovsky, Boucher
    G - Brodeur, Fleury, DiPietro
    IR - Zubov

    any input is appreciated :)

    • Brunnstrom is also available in the FA pool so i have options, I figure by the time Zubov comes off the IR I'll be ready to move one of these forwards anyway to bring my games played back in line. I wont know anything until my roster updates on Saturday. :(

      Any other feedback would be great

    • I think you did alright, probably not the move I would have made, but it's not going to kill you. I'm not too high on Byfuglien. I think he's pretty overrated. I'm not sure why you thought you needed Niedermayer though when you already had Visnovsky and Pronger. Seems kind of pointless to me, especially to trade Pominville. Granted, you've got some depth at wing, but.... I'd have tried to go with Hejduk or Boyes in the trade. As for your left wing situation, I've got some info from Yahoo that might interest you regarding Keith Tkachuck......

      ((((( I appreciate your inquiry with regards to player position eligibility.

      Players may be eligible at multiple positions during the current Yahoo!
      Sports Fantasy Hockey season. Initial position eligibility was
      determined based on past participation and information supplied by the
      teams during the off-season.

      * All position eligibility requests are reviewed, compiled and
      forwarded to our data provider. A final determination on position
      eligibility is made by our data provider.

      * Please understand that since Yahoo! is not responsible for
      modifying position eligibility, we cannot speculate on future changes or
      comment on the decisions made regarding individual player(s).

      * There are no set criteria (minimum number of games, minutes, etc.
      at a new position) for position eligibility. A new position will be
      added when our data provider determines that a player's primary position
      has changed.

      * Players will never lose position eligibility.

      We appreciate your feedback. While we'd much rather address each request
      personally, it's simply not practical given the nature of the review
      process. Whenever you have further comments or questions, please feel
      free to email me again.

      Thank you again for contacting Yahoo! Sports.



      Essentially, that means I don't know when he'll be LW eligible, if ever. So uh.... Yeah, bad move, but I applaud you for having the balls to make it.

    • sorry its a 12 team Roto league, that was a mistype.
