    Do I trade Crosby away (pt. 2)?

    H2H One-year league. No keepers. No PIM, hits, etc.

    My team-

    C: Crosby, Stastny, Couture
    LW: Neal, Burrows
    RW: P. Kane, Holmstrom
    LW/RW: Heatley
    D: Visnovsky, Ehrhoff, Shattenkirk, Suter
    G: Varlamov, Neuvirth, Rinne, Lindback, Lehtonen

    His team-

    C: Backstrom, Thornton
    LW: Leino, E. Kane, Laich
    RW: Backes, Gionta, Pavelski (C,RW)
    D: Letang, Seabrook, Keith, Robidas, Hamirlk
    G: Howard, Bryzgalov, Mike Smith

    I was offered

    Backstrom, Letang, and Howard : for : Crosby, Shattenkirk, and Varlamov.

    I countered with

    Backstrom, Pavelski, Keith, Howard : for : Crosby, Ehrhoff, Varly, Neuvirth. He countered with Backes instead of Pavelski. Do I do it?

    • honestly, backes is proving himself this year and he isn't a bad addition, and with backstrom and even ovechkin who isn't mentioned here, both of them are at their worst right now, this is the best time to buy low on both of em. Backstrom will heat up in a few games when the caps get back to their winning ways and be his normal self. With that being said, IMO i'd rather ahve kris letang this year over duncan keith but thats just me. I'd ask him for letang instead of keith, keith is just the name. You also get Jimmy Howard, DO THE TRADE!

    • that zajac jonhn micheal-liles thing is ridiculous!

      I wouldn't do it either. You can get something better for crosby and if washington gets their heads out of their asses varmy will be worth a lot more.

      • True story! The manager insisted on sending me several e-mails about how it would improve my team. I couldn't believe they even tried it!

        I already tried getting Howard and Bryz and that didn't fly. I just wish he had some better wingers!!

        I did just receive Crosby, Shattenkirk, Varly/Neuvi for Backstrom, Backes, Keith, Howard.

        This league is offensive minded and we have faceoff wins as well. Crosby wins a pile so Backes or Pavelski would be nice since they win faceoffs too.

    • while i believe you get the better half of this trade, i wudnt do it. i honestly believe u can get more for crosby. so, if u wanna accept then by all means do it because its a good trade for you. but i'd hold out for something better

      • The other team that has some good players to offer looks like this:

        C: Sedin, Kopitar, Plekanec
        LW: Kostitsyn, Ladd
        RW: Perry, Briere, Cleary
        D: Doughty, Gonchar, Boyle, Edler
        G: Halak, Boucher, Bobrovsky, Garon

        See a combo that would help improve my team? Perhaps Sedin, Perry and Halak for Crosby, something and the Caps duo?

      • It's a 10-team league and two managers are very inactive. The unfortunate thing is most of the managers in this league overvalue their players to an unrealistic extreme.

        Case in point one person offered me Zajac and John-Michael Liles for Crosby and was offended I didn't accept. This is the first realistic offer that has come my way.

        I just wish he had some better wingers to choose from. I'd go with Pavelski but then I'm sorely overloaded with Sharks (Heatley, Couture, Pavelski).

        I like the idea of getting rid of both Caps netminders for someone like Howard though.
