Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
Hey guys, it's a full team keeper league and I have way to many C and not enough LW so Ryan would help there. Also I already have Perry so that would be a benefit. Also I have a lot of injured guys right now, 6 actually, and could use a healthy player. What do you think?
Team A gets: Bobby Ryan
Team B gets: Evgeni Malkin

I figured Id post my team in case that helped people with answers.
Malkin's dealing with injuries, but his upside is much higher. Ryan is over rated, he's in his fourth season and has never sustained a point per game pace and does not receive first power play minutes due to Selanne's old man strength/speed/awesomeness. Ryan is a relevant fantasy option but when Malkin is at his best, there aren't many better.
I wouldn't. Malkin's upside is much higher. When Staal comes back, he'll get RW eligibility. Not as good as LW, but better than C. I just traded Heatley to get Malkin in my keeper league. Malkin is a proven 100+ point player who is only 24 and will play with Crosby for years. When Staal takes over 2nd line C duties, malkin MAY even play with Crosby more often. I still consider Malkin one of the top 5 players to own.
