Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
I am in second place in my 12 team league, but behind first by a 150 points. Stats counted are G,A, +/-, PPP,SOG, PIM, SHG.
He wants from my team: Olli Jokinen, Jay Bouwmeester, and Marc Savard.
For his: Stephane Robidas, Daniel Alfredsson, and Patrick Sharp.
I already have Kovalev and Spezza (Same team as alfie), and Ribeiro and Eriksson (same team as Robidas).
What should I do?? Thanks!

i didnt read the other posts but my gut says no on this. you arent getting much benefit and you dont want a ton of players on one team risks too high. other than that, its really a bet on the future of savard. might as well hope he bounces back than trade for some crap
I'd take the deal. I think Sharp is a sleeper in this deal. He'll move back to his natural wing position in a couple weeks and should start racking up the ppp. Savard is a real question mark with his health.
take the trade then drop kovalev...he is brutal. seriously he is FA in most leagues. ribiero is IR and also FA most leagues.
dallas has one line and ribbi isnt on it. and dallas is in turmoil right now. plus what happens if they do trade turco? does that make the team better? what happens to the forwards numbers....they go down because they are behind and playing more defense.
meester has NEVER been a point producer...yes he gets big minutes...but its a shutdown role. JOKE inen is crap....trade soonest.
you win bigtime in this trade.
the trade is actually in your favor by the quality of players, however do you really want a lot of your players from only a couple of teams? it's a real toss-up. generally a team might struggle while a player puts up good numbers, so make sure that you get D-men who play the PP and forwards who play on the top two lines only. if a forward averages close to a point a game, he's a keeper. likewise for d-men=if they average less than 1/2 a point a game, dump 'em.
afredsson and sharp are studs. i would cross my fingers and probably take the trade, even that i don't know the rest of your roster.
I would say definitely take this. 3 useful players for essentially 1 in Savard who's been hurt and is stuck on the lowly offense of the bruins. Bruins problems stem from having a team filled with set up men and no shooters, Savards numbers will not match previous years because of this. When your best shooter is Marco Sturm you have a problem. Bruins made a big mistake signing guys like ryder, widemen, and wheeler rather then Kessel(mind you the draft picks are nice).

Sharpie and Alffie, (two extremely creative vets playing on their teams top line), for Jokinen on a Flames team that are, (pun intended), going down in flames and Savard on a Bruins team getting ripped a new body cavity by their coach after every appearance.
If you dont make this deal I will!! )
i wouldn't take that trade...like you said, you'd have 3 players from 2 teams thats almost a 3rd of your roster - which really screws you for roster sports/playing time. alfie is the only player you'd be getting thats worth anything in your league size - sharp is decent but you might be able to pick up a FA with as many pts as he has. i'd try a counter offer if your willing to give up those players just on the fact that you'd have 3 players from 2 teams!
