Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
I'm currently sitting 8/12, with only 21 pts separating 1st and last. I'm 16pts behind. I also had last pick. Without further adieu - should I accept this trade?
C- Anze Kopitar
RW- Shane Doan
C- Olli Jokkinen
RW- Jerome Iginla
D- Lubomir Vishnovsky
G- Nik Khabiboulin
My Current Centers are: J.Carter, A.Kopitar, D.Roy
My Current RW's are: M. St.Louis, S.Doan, D.Stafford (J.Franzen IR)
My Current LW's are: D. Sedin (IR), A.Frolov, M.Moulson, M.Sturm
My D is nothing to write home about: N.Kronwall, J.Corvo, W.Radden, D.Giradi, R.Klesla & W. Mitchell
My Goalies are: M.Kiprusoff, C.Mason/T.Conklin
Should I take this deal? On one hand, I'm fairly confidant kopitar and iginla will both be around the 90pt mark, with jokkinen and doan around the 75pt mark. I'm also getting a playable D and some needed strength in net. It seriously is a pain trying to figure out whose playing each night for the blues.
On the other hand. I'm weakening my Centers, and semi over loading my RW's. If anything I need scoring help on LW up front. I should also mention I wound up +5 games at Center, so maybe less potency up the middle isnt such a bad thing for me.
Thoughts? Should I accept?
Take it. Seriously whoever offered that deal is retarded. Plus if you're worried about losing people up center don't be. Center is the deepest forward position. There will be someone in FA that's half decent.
TAKE IT!!!! Iginla and Jokinen are just off to a slow start... Those 2 alone are worth more than Doan & Kopitar. Khabby will help out your goalie situation as well. Visnovsky is better than 3/4" of your d all ready.
...check free agency to upgrade your D...and every other position. Amazingly I got some awesome players from there: Prospal, Dubinsky, Goligosky, Grebeshkov, Wolski, Pascal Leclaire....the list goes on. I did a major overhaul through FA.
