Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
Was just offered a trade- I get Toews/Kiprusoff --- I give Getzlaf and Hiller
This is my team, through a series of some blockbuster trades I managed to pull out quite a powerhouse so the only thing left I need is my bench to be deeper. (This is a 10 team H2H league)
would you take this trade??
BN- M. Savard
I am thinking I could package kiprusoff with some other guy and take advantage of someone who needs goalie help? But that would mean I lose getz
I am pretty confident I can move kipper for heatley and/or chara. to make up for pim and goals... so if i got kipper should i just keep him? I mean, price has a decent team in front of him or I could just sit price on the games against really good teams (min starts is 3)

I like the trade for you but I wouldn't be in a rush to trade Kipper. Brodeur is reaching the age when injuries will be more common and New Jersey isn't the team it was and victories may be harder to come by. Your 2nd goalie Price isn't a sure thing either and may share a lot of time with Halak, the same for Hillier.
I'd let the dust settle for a month before rushing into trading a top goalie.
Price really doesn't have that good of a team in front of him honestly. Certainly not a defensive powerhouse so you'd be rolling the dice by trading Kipper away. That being said if you could get Heatley AND Chara for him then you'd be dumb not to take that deal.
I'd take it because you are pretty strong at centre and with the question marks about Price for the coming season Kipper would give you another goalie that'll log huge start totals behind what should be an improved defense. That'd move Savard into the starting centre spot with Toews to back him up and Toews has PPG potential. I think it's a good trade for both sides.
