Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
I wanted to offer:
H. Sedin & Rafalski
Maybe fair to offer Thornton/Rafalski?
Keep in mind he loves the Red Wings and I own Gagne & Markov whos comin off IR soon so need to lose a D man...
Another possibility is to make a trade for Kessel (Tor RW), what should I do?
My team currently includes:
Joe Thornton (SJ - C)
Paul Stastny (Col - C)
Henrik Sedin (Van - C)
Simon Gagne (Phi - LW) IR
Patrick Marleau (SJ - C,LW)
Tomas Fleischmann (Was - LW,RW)
Dustin Penner (Edm - LW)
Jarome Iginla (Cgy - RW)
Bobby Ryan (Anh - LW,RW)
Tomas Kaberle (Tor - D)
Lubomir Visnovsky (Edm - D)
Brian Rafalski (Det - D)
Sergei Gonchar (Pit - D)
Andrei Markov (Mon - D) IR
Any expert opinions?
obviosuly ud like to keep ur good players while trying to get differnt players...
in ur case bud... u cant really upgrade unless u are willing to give something that ppl want
eg.. Rafalski isnt gna get u anything this year...
ur gna have to part with markov, gonchar or kaberle and stastny/sedin to get a players like Kane, Nash, Kessel and stuff
I hate both of those trades for you. I would much rather offer Ryan + Stastny + Rafalski for Gaborik + 2nd Centre.
The way I see it is this. I highly doubt you use Ryan's duel elegibilty since Gagne, Fleishman, Marleau, and Penner is a pretty wicked 4some of left-wingers. However, his duel elegibility will give him extra value in a trade. Thornton and Sedin are too good at Centre to give up on for Gaborik especially when you consider his injury-risk situation that will forever follow him. Losing Ryan would be unfortunate, but Gaborik would be a definite upgrade. You open up the roster spot for Gagne which is a plus. And if you get a second tier Centre in return then you don't lose too much on Stastny.
