Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
I Trade Goligoski and I can acquire either Nabokov, Datsyuk OR Cammalleri. This is a 15 player dynasty team. Here is my team. Thoughts . . .
Mike Richards (PHI)
Jason Arnott (NSH)
Dany Heatley (OTT)
Simon Gagne (PHI)
Shane Doan (PHO - LW)
Milan Hejduk (COL)
Bryan Little (ATL - C,RW)
Saku Koivu (ANH - C)
Daniel Carcillo (PHI - LW)
Fabian Brunnstrom (DAL - LW)
Todd Bertuzzi (CGY - LW)
Ryan Smyth (LA - LW)
Michael Ryder (BOS - RW)
Phillipe Boucher (PIT)
Dan Boyle (SJ)
Drew Doughty (LA)
Niklas Kronwall (DET)
Alex Goligoski (PIT - D)
Tim Thomas (BOS)
Vesa Toskala (TOR)
Jean-Sebastien Giguere (ANH - G)
Are you serious? He would part with any of those players for Goligoski???
Dont get me wrong, I like the kid, but....
1) He hasn't proven anything
2) Those other players are proven top tier players
3) Datsyuk is a top 5 player in everything except PIMs
4) Goligoski is a DEFENSEMAN!!!
Who would pay that much for an unproven dman? Dmen are pretty low on my list of priority in fantasy hockey unless you use some weird scoring system. Unless you get one of the top 5 guys (which Goli is NOT), you are better off picking forwards and goalies.
Take the deal for any of those guys. I would choose datsyuk.
I think Goligoski is going to be a great offensive D in Pitts, I made a move to grab him in one of my pools. I swapped an older D straight up. But are you serious when you say someone is willing to trade him straight up for Nabokov, Datsyuk OR Cammalleri? I would expect this guy would also be asking for a draft pick or something, not just a 1 for 1 deal.
In anycase, you'd be silly not to do it right away. Grab Nabokov for sure. Datsyuk would be my 2nd choice.
If he does get smart and realize the mistake, trying throwing in Giguere to sweeten the deal. Then use an FA to pick up another young D like T. Enstrom or Z. Bogosian from ATL. Good chance they are still available.
I really am not 100 percent sure of what to do, either way you are playing the other guy, well i would take Nabokov over Datzyuk because Nabokov is usually a first round goalie and i don't think Thomas is going to repeat numbers so you need another goalie.
