    Pending: Malkin & Torres for Dubinsky & Eberle

    This trade is pending in my league, not involving me, and I'd love to hear some thoughts on it.

    Seems pretty one-sided to me, Malkin is worth more than all three of the other guys in my opinion. What do you think?

    • The question you need to ask yourself is whether or not the two managers involved in the trade are making it as a conscious effort to bolster the winning side. Vetoes are not meant to prevent stupid managers. They're meant to stop instances where one manager is essentially tossing better players over to a friend for little to no benefit.

      In this case, I would say that the manager trading Malkin is being stupid, but I don't know that he's necessarily doing it on purpose. Malkin is off to a slower-than-normal start. Maybe this guy knows very little about Malkin or fantasy hockey in general, or maybe he just thinks Malkin is heading for a slump year.

      I don't think this is veto worthy. I've mentioned this in a few threads now. Show me a Ovy + Crosby + Sedins for Joe Nobody and that would be a vetoable trade. This just smells like stupid to me. Stupid is part of the fantasy game.

    • It's a non-sense ... VETO this trade ... Malkin's value as dropped with his slow start but he's still a fantasy monster
