    Help me with a Datsyuk trade...

    Let's just assume the Datsyuk owner is fed up with him. I want to put together a 2-for-1 trade to get Datsyuk (because I have Knuble and Ward coming off IR). I'll ignore goalies in this trade.

    Here's my team:
    6C:Crosby,Peverley,B.Richards,Kesler,Arnott
    5L:Neal,Bourque,Riemsdyk,Raymond,R.Whitney
    5R:Hossa,Guerin,Antropov,Backes
    4D:Green,Gonchar,Phaneuf,Bieska
    IR:Knuble,Gionta

    Here's his team:
    C: Backstrom, Krejci, Datsyuk, Gagner, Plekanec
    LW: Frolov, Eriksson, Rolston, Kozlov, Kariya
    RW: Horton, Holmstrom, Pominville
    D: Kaberle, McCabe, Enstrom, White, McKee

    Since he's short on RW support, maybe I can give him a C + RW for Datsyuk. Again, let's assume he's ready to make the change and just needs to be offered something that looks kind of alright.

    12-team, 21-player, H2H league that counts G, A, P, +/-, PIM, PPP.

    Guerin + Arnott?
    Kesler + Backes?
    Kesler + Geurin (this starts to feel like too much, but not necessarily)

    I don't want to bring guys like Hossa, Crosby, B.Richards in if I can avoid it. I know, I'm acting greedy and selfish.

    • haha you'll never get datsyuk for kesler and neal who are you kidding

    • Kesler and Antropov should do it, or try Kesler and Neal. hey can u help me with this trade? I get Savard and Lupul and I give Neal and Tavares

      • Yeah, I think I would do that trade (taking Savard/Lupul).

        Savard's a star, no doubt.
        Lupul started slow, but is putting together a few games. The dual-position is great.
        I still have faith in Neal, and he's putting points up again. Tavares is a rookie, while he's talented, I'm not sure how long he can keep it up through the season.

        But Savard's the best player there, so I'd have to go with that side and hope Lupul holds his own.

    • Probably Guerin Arnott. He won't take the 2nd because Backes has even worse stats than Pav.

      I'm trying a similar trade where I'm offering Sharp, Bouwmeester and Pavelac for Dats and LeClaire Bouwmeester has the name but not really the stats and Sharp has had a good start. He has 2 goalies on IR so I'm hoping he'll want a healthy goalie.

      If it works my Centers become Pav, Zetterberg, Sedin.

      Good luck!

      • Thanks John.

        From the other Datsyuk thread the other day, I know you're seriously pro-Datsyuk. I'm going to hope he can put something good up for the rest of the season... and not bad considering Arnott was an FA pick-up, and Guerin I got for Havlat just before he (Guerin) started playing better again.

        I wonder, however, if you should hide the fact that you're a Wings fan when you offer that trade proposal. Otherwise, he might start thinking he can squeeze more out of you.

    • At the end of the day, I want to feel like I got a steal. Which is tough because Datsyuk so far hasn't done much.
