Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
What trades have you made this year?
I have made 2 trades.
I traded Evgeni Malkin for Ryan Miller straight up.
The reason I did this was because there was a huge whole in my goalie position and I only had about 15 games left on the center posistion so I figured I might as well benefit from getting rid of him since I won't get points from him.
The other trade I made was:
H. Sedin, Pominville, and S. Mason
Gaborik & Huet
Once again I might have given up to much but like I said before I am just about done with games at Center so why not benefit.
NOW! What have you did this year so far?
Traded Backstrom (C) for St. Louis at the begining of the year. Was stacked at C with Crosby, Zetts and richards.
Traded Loui Erikson for Mark Streit at the en of the first 1/4. I think i lost big on this one but i had James Neal (when he looked like he was tearing up stats) and Brad Richards and Had to get rid of one of them and nobody would take him and that's all I could get.
Although I was able to package Streit and Ryan Malone for Hossa just 2 games after he came back from injury which was awesome!
Stamkos/Ward for Doan/Nabokov right after draft (needed to fill a G pos. ended up dropping Doan)
Alfie for St. Louis (right before Alf went on a tear)
St. Louis for Pronger (lol, my FWs were stacked, and +/- was my only weak point)
I picked up a few FAs in the process, now my team is pretty well rounded.
Vrbata(UFA pickup) <-> Backes
Kesler+Smyth+Coburn <-> E.Staal+Clowe
E.Staal+Backes+Leclaire <-> Brodeur + Moulson + White
some of the better FA-adds so far:
Howard, Stewart, Fleischmann, Brunette, Foster
but I made also some terrible waiver adds in:
Lupul,Souray and Wideman
and a bitter drop early in the season: Halak ...
in the end...for my first season...so far so good...
Ive only made one trade
Gave away Patrick Sharp
Got back Travis Zajac
Sharp was hot, but I had Kane, and Hossa was coming off IR. Zajac has been great, but overall it was an even trade.
Ive been trying to package Lundvqist and another guy (like Zajac or Koivu) for a reliable goalie to go with Luongo. Ive actually had my eye on Varlamov, cause Luongo can hold it down by himself until he gets back, and each week I know Ill get the edge in goalie wins.
I've made 6 trades so far this year, a little much but they definately have helped me grab hold of first place

I receive Martin St Louis
NOV 17- I trade Pavel Datsyuk and Vinny Prospal
I receive Patrick Marleau (my favorite trade so far)
NOV 23- I trade Daniel Alfredsson and Mike Ribeiro
I receive Vinny Lecalvalier
DEC 16- I trade Mike Richards and JS Giguere

1> Traded Langenbrunner for Staal
2> Traded Prospal for Ryan
3> Traded M. Richards for Iginla
I don't believe there's a clear winner in any of these, but it worked out when positions were taken into consideration.
In Jan I traded Zetterberg & Sharp for D Sedin & Varlamov
I also just traded JS Giguere for Vermette...might have been able to do better but we'll see...I did get the 2nd best FW player in the league. I also have H Sedin, M Koivu, & Filppula as my Centers...
I've made four trades this season:
1. I received D Roy for Z. Bogosian
2. I received J. Theodore for C. Anderson
3. I received T. Rask for B. Boyes
4. I received Getzlaf/Kopitar/Hossa/Markov/Myers
Jokinen/Roy/Pavelski/Erkisson/Barker (Eriksson is eligible to be kept in the 6th round next season, Pavelski can be kept in the 7th round)
Luongo, Kane when Luongo was hurt.
I also traded
H. Sedin and Ovechkin
Thornton, Carter, Doughty, Bieksa in a 20 team league.
Luongo, Rinne and Downie
Zetterberg, St.Louis and Howard when zetterberg was injured.
