    Potential Crosby Trade

    I am toying with the idea of trading Crosby. I was thinking of offering this trade, is it a good idea, who wins, would it get accepted etc. H2H non-keeper league.

    I give:

    Crosby
    Weber
    Bourque

    I get:

    Backstrom
    Iginla
    Demers

    Any thoughts would be appreciated. I'm thinking I'm probably asking for a bit much in return, but there are a lot of Crosby fanatics out there...

    • Keep crosby! as much as i hate the guy, he still puts up the points even though he is a little injury prone

    • Weber's a great defenseman. Demer's won't be where he is at this year. And Bourque is a 25 G+ guy isn't he? Not a big fan of the Flames but he is a good two-way player. I'd expect more giving Crosby away.

    • As much as I hate Crosby, I would say you wouldn't even be getting enough in that deal. I'd say it is a high likelihood that it would get accepted. At this point, I wouldn't do it if I were you. I would personally wait until the season starts before I start shopping Crosby.

      • Yeah, I hate him too, but fantasy-wise I try not to play favorites. For now I just put him on my trading block and if anyone proposes anything crazy-good, I'll consider it. I could use a RW, and I'd have to get a very good C in return to take Sid's place. I've never had Crosby or Ovie before, so I'm just trying to gauge exactly how much I should be asking for. In all likelihood I'll keep him.

        Here's the team I have him on, does anyone think I need to move him to help improve elsewhere?

        C Sidney Crosby
        C Pavel Datsyuk
        C Ryan Kesler
        LW Bobby Ryan
        LW Michael Cammalleri
        LW Tomas Fleischmann
        RW Phil Kessel
        RW Rene Bourque
        RW Jiri Hudler
        D Nicklas Lidstrom
        D Shea Weber
        D Lubomir Visnovski
        D Sheldon Souray
        D Ian White
        D John Carlson
        UTIL Tim Connolly
        G Jimmy Howard
        BN Antti Niemi (G)
        BN Steve Mason (G)
        BN Guillaume Latendresse (LW)
        BN Steve Downie (RW)

        Thanks.
