    Zetterberg/Biron for Fleury/Parise

    My Zetterberg/Biron for his Fleury/Parise

    Should I do it? my goaltending sucks. This is a keeper league

    My goales are Biron, Nittymaki, Raycroft, Price (only bright spot), Conklin. Goaltending represents 6 categories.

    My other left wings are Vermette, Avery, Jordan Stall. Not quite steller.

    • Zetterberg goes nowhere on any team... you can't trade him, Fleury is playing for a beat pens team that will not do as well as last year. and Parise plays on a defensive minded team.

      Help me out with mine CHARA FOR MARKOV

    • You do not need 5 goalies for one team unless you have Brodeur, Nabokov, Lundqvist, Luongo and Fleury...and even that would be ridiculous. If you get rid of Biron you may as well get rid on Nittymaki- they are going to be trading starts all year and its good to keep them handcuffed or you may go 2 weeks without playing nittymaki or vice versa -worrked well for me last year if you can afford the roster space, but Philly is looking terribly thus far both of them are large parts of that.

      I would definately do the trade though. Fleury will be solid all year and is looking to show more consistency this year. Solid goaltending especially when you have six categories will win you championships.

      as for losing zetterberg that is a blow but it seems a pretty fair trade, you are still getting a high quality player in parise and there are always players on free agency to make up for the offense, solid goalies are hard to come by, if you do the trade and then either drop nittymaki or raycroft (or both) you can afford another winger to fill in during the week to make up the offense lost by zetterberg. There are tons of young players yet to be picked up that wll probably break out 50+ points. Try Little from ATL, he is playing alongside Kovalchuk and should get RW status sometime soon.

    • Man, what happened to your team? This a head to head league?

      Honestly, I'd probably do it based on the fact that your goaltending does indeed suck ass. Parise is a good young winger. He's not going to make up for losing Zetterberg, but he's definitely not going to hurt your team. Biron isn't that good of a goalie. If it weren't for the fact that Nittymaki is behind him, he probably wouldn't really be a starter.

      So, yeah, I'd make the deal. Then I'd dump Raycroft and Conklin. And I'd consider dumping Nittymaki and see if maybe Jason LaBarbera or Mike Smith are available. Just another starter. But just by dumping Nittymaki and Raycroft, you've freed up some space. You could pick up a prospect like Montoya, Bernier, Crawford or Halak if you wanted. Or you could grab two other prospects or maybe a Fabian Brunnstrom.

      What's the rest of your roster look like?

      • This is the team I inherited although I drafted alot of them too.

        I have not been offered this trade, just something I am considering. Goaltending is huge in this league.
