Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
I have offered Datsyuk, Langkow and Cam Ward for Tim Thomas and N.Backstrom (Min). Do you think it's doable or do I have to add some of my other players instead? (Elias, Phaneuf, S.Niedermayer, Havlat, Antropov, Zajac, Hemsky)?

It's just you thinking about it. Sometimes need can mean you give up a bit, but Backstrom is a top five fantasy goalie and you don't find many of those.
That guy sucks with how many goalies he has that are tops in fantasy. (I say that out of sheer jealousy.)
I'm sure if Luongo gets back on track he'll move another goalie and rake in a top player.
Ward is not very good this season, so no one would ever give two top ten goaltenders for him. Even then, the trader would have to go fish out another keeper, unless that team already had three.
I would try for either one, but not both. That team would out of their mind to trade both.

That team has Thomas, S.Mason, Luongo and Backstrom as goaltenders and we start two goalies. I wouldn't have offered for both if he would have had three goalies. But I feel that I would overpay if I offered Datsyuk for Backstrom...
That's a lot of goaltending for someone to give up. I can see the guy giving up one of them but not both.
I would aim for Backstrom since he doesn't split time, but both are still great goalies.
If you want to shoot for both then I would say the you might need to add Niedermayer or Phaneuf to the deal, but that's a lot in my mind.
I would do:
Backstrom or Thomas

Datsyuk has had 15 multi-point games so far and I deem him too valuable to trade heads-up for Thomas or Backstrom. I have Marleau, Datsyuk and Elias that are all around 50 points. If I trade Datsyuk I would want to get more, or include him in a deal that will give me two goaltenders...

We start 2 defenders and he already has Rafalski, Chara and Roszival. Don't know if he would want another defender. He's a bit shallow on center quality (Drury, H.Sedin, P.Sharp and Gagner). He also has Mason and Luongo as goaltenders but I figured it's easier to trade for Backstrom and Thomas because the latter is in a time-share with Fernandez.
So should I try Datsyuk, S.Niedermayer and Cam Ward for Thomas and Backstrom(G)?
There are not any good FA goalies in our league (the best ones are Chris Mason and Josh Harding)...
