Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
Ok here is the trade that is pending...
It is a keeper league and many managers are protesting. I am not party to either team just giving info. I say trade should stand because the only time trades should be vetoed are for collusion and cheating.
What are your thoughts ?
Let it stand as I don't see collusion. The team getting Crosby must expect far better over the coming years and/or he has a man crush on him. Maybe also has a concern over Kovalchuk's injury and Lecavalier's slow start and difficult last season. Jealously is clearly the reason for the protest.
Trades can also be vetoed when a player such as Kovalchuk is injured and can't play. The team getting Crosby at this point has an advantage until Kovalchuk returns.
And in a keeper leaue you may want to closely watch trades sicne they carry over to the following year. The other thing - Kozlov is 36 and he's being traded in a keeper league so the Kovalchuk side is getting three younger players all the way around which again needs to be looked at before approving it. The team getting Kovalchuk, Kane and LeCavalier is potentially getting the better deal long term.
