    Thornton Trade Help

    This is a dynasty league (keep your roster from year to year)

    What do you think I can throw together to get him. I was thinking something involving Smyth/Satan/??????

    My team:

    Pavel Datsyuk(Det - C)
    Jochen Hecht(Buf - C)
    Todd White(Atl - C)
    Doug Weight(NYI - C)
    Jakub Voracek(Cls - W)
    Andrei Kostitsyn(Mon - W)
    Miroslav Satan(Pit - W)
    Thomas Vanek(Buf - W)
    Milan Lucic(Bos - W)
    Pierre-Marc Bouchard(Min - W)
    Dany Heatley(Ott - W)
    Ryan Smyth(Col - W)
    Brian Rafalski(Det - D)
    Duncan Keith(Chi - D)
    Tom Gilbert(Edm - D)
    Matt Hunwick(Bos - D)
    Kevin Bieksa(Van - D)
    Keith Ballard(Fla - D)
    Daniel Cleary(Det-W)
    T.J. Hensick(Col - C)
    Matt D'Agostini(Mon - W)
    Bobby Ryan(Anh - W)
    Rob Schremp
    Ryan Malone(TB - W)
    Philippe Boucher(Pit - D)
    Andy McDonald(StL - C)

    Dan Ellis(Nsh - G)
    Cory Schneider(VAN-G)
    Joey MacDonald(NYI - G)
    Michael Leighton(Car - G)
    Brent Johnson(WAS-G)
    Pekka Rinne(Nsh - G)

    • Rafalski/Kostitsyn for Thornton? You think I can afford that by looking at my roster? I could grab Schneider/Wisneiwski/Commodore/etc

      • You can try, but he would really have to be sold on Kostitsyn's upside...probably won't bite.

        Also depends if the other person is rebuilding, or is competitive this year. If he's competing, you probably have to overpay for Thornton so they have a better chance at winning. If they're rebuilding, throwing Bobby Ryan and/or Lucic might work, along with Kostitsyn+Rafalski.

        Don't even know if that will be accepted to be honest.

    • If I had Jumbo Joe in a keeper, from your roster, I would want nothing less then one of Datsyuk, Heatley, Vanek, or Rafalski+a good forward. Giving older, undesireable players (aka Satan, Smyth) will not get you a 100 point player. Quality>Quantity.

      Look at it the other way...if you were offered Smyth/Satan/someone at that level for Datsyuk, would you take it?
