Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
I'm being offered Vincent Lecavalier and Chris Pronger in exchange for Patrick Elias and Jean Sebastian Giguere.
This offer came out of the blue. Is it just me or is it very lopsided against the person who made the offer?
I'm the commish of the league so it makes me worry of possible league repercussions - but no one has voted the trade unfair yet.
Please keep this thread about my trade offer, not the other one involving Ovechkin getting vetoed.
As I said, my other goalies are Martin Brodeur, Ilya Bryzgalov, and Marty Turco. I figured Turco would be my best trade chip and then Giguere would move up to my 3rd goalie... I never thought someone would seek Giguere above my other goalies.
That being said, yes Lecavalier right now has a bruised foot, and is becoming more injury prone, and is now a 2nd line center NOT playing with Martin St. Louis. However, Elias is also as injury prone as they come, but puts up points when he does play. That part of the trade is more even then it seems.
Giguere should at worst get slightly more starts then Gustavsson, and yes Pronger is injury prone but he is usually good for 40-50 points and right now I NEED defense.
Elias is playing on the top line with kovi and parise, so he will likely rack up quite a bit of point. Lecavilier will be playing second line minutes behind Stamkos and St. Louis. Pronger will rack up point on the pp but I would think he would generate 40-50 pts. Giguere is starting for the leafs and will likely rack up 25 wins. On the surface in seems like you have an advantage, but i'm not quite sure what the end result will be. It all comes down to who will remain healthy. I don't think I would make the trade
Does the other player have like, no goalies? They should be able to shoot higher as far as goalies go, or may be somewhat naive to the level that JS is currently at, or believe him ready to have a great season.

My other goalies are Martin Brodeur, Ilya Bryzgalov, and Marty Turco. I always figured Turco would be the best trading chip and Giguere would end up being my 3rd goalie. He didn't even ask for Turco or better!
The lack of goalies might be key on this or he's just a big leaf fan. I've seen them do crazy trades before. Thinking with their heart and not their head.
Isn't Vinny injured? and Pronger plays like he's going to get injured. I agree its a lopsided deal, but nothing is guaranteed.
