Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
Finally got a trade to go through.
I get - Heatley and Erat
I give - Morrow, Hemsky, Seabrook and Gerber
I figure that frees up a couple of roster spots.
RW options - Erat, Ryder, Blake Wheeler
Additional information follows:
12 team keeper league....
Centers - Malkin, Jokinen, Cogliano
Left Wing - Morrow, Michalek, Cammalleri, Hartnell, Brunnstrom
Right Wing - Hossa, Perry, Hemsky
Defense - Phaneuf, Green, Seabrook, Hainsey,
IR - McCabe, Whitney
Goalies - Miller, Bryzgalov, Garon, Gerber
So, I realize I've already got five friggin' left wingers. It'd be nice if Yahoo'd get off their keesters (did I spell that correctly?) and give Michalek and Hartnell their LW/RW eligibility. But, Daniel Carcillo is available on the free agent list. Should I drop Martin Gerber, who I consider to be a total @#$%-stain and get Carcillo?
I think I've done pretty damn good with this team, especially considering it's a keeper league and the only two guys on my team over 30 years of age are McCabe and Gerber. I just wish I could get somebody in this friggin' league to trade with me. I've been trying to two weeks now to work a deal for Lundqvist, Luongo or Nabokov and I can't get anything done. So, after that I started trying to go for defensemen: Boyle and Visnovsky and I can't get either of them. So, now what do I try and do?
And what do I do when Whitney and McCabe come off the IR? Obviously I'm gonna' drop Hainsey, but who do I drop after that?
Some of the trades that I've proposed and had rejected....
Morrow, Seabrook and Gerber for Nabokov
Morrow and Hainsey for Chara
Hemsky, Michalek, McCabe and Gerber for Kane, Suter and Bernier
Michalek, Seabrook, and Gerber for Campbell
Miller for Brodeur
Michalek, Seabrook and Gerber for Aucoin and Giguere
Michalek, Hemsky, Seabrook and Gerber for A. Kostitsyn, J. Williams and Lundqvist
Michalek, Seabrook, Garon and Gerber for Filatov and Lundqvist
One reply that I got - When your D gets healthy I would just drop a LW to make room... what the market value of Brunnstrom and Hartnell will be when that happens is still up in the air. If you're looking to just move D though, Seabrook is easily replaceable. I honestly think he's overrated. There are plenty of moves to be made here, you just have to be gutsy enough to pull it off.
My thoughts on the reply – I don’t really want to trade Brunnstrom, not yet anyway. I envision this guy as the next Zetterberg (or at least I’m hoping). As for Hartnell, I’m not sure that I want to trade him either, because he should eventually become RW eligible, then I can play both him and Michalek in both spots, which would make my roster nice and tidy with three left wings, three right wings and two swing guys, plus my three centers. I’d like to trim it down to three goalies and then five defensemen. We get a total of 19 roster spots.

I'll not trade Malkin. Not even on my death bed.
It's not exactly essential that I get Lundqvist. I've got two good, though not excellent, young goaltenders in Miller and Bryzgalov. And I've also got Garon. I'll find another way to get Luongo or Nabokov or something. Besides, I've still got to get rid of Milan Michalek somehow.
all of those trades that you are offering are quantity for quality. All Fantasy trades are based on who got the best player in the deal, because when you recieve quantity, you often have to free roster spots, like dropping guys who are probably comparable to the guys you recieve. It makes total sense why the trades you have proposed have not gone through.
Theres no reason the extras couldn't include say a Paul stastny for a Ryan Miller. No that does not mean that I would instantly accept that offer, but that is along the lines of something I would call fair AND useful. But it's your call!
Fair, maybe. But would it benefit me? No. I'd have to use Cogliano as my second center and I wont be able to do that for another couple of years. And I've already got two good (not stellar) goalies. It wouldn't make no durn sense. Your idea of fair is just not my idea of fair. See, my idea of fair is where I trade you three or four guys for your one guy and a used puck bag. Haven't you figured this out yet (now I'm just being patronizing.) When you're ready to give up that man-crush, we can talk. Otherwise, you just hold on to that puck bag and keep the #1 spot warm for me.
