    Trade Malkin in Keeper?

    Should I part with Malkin and try to get Corey Perry and Luongo in a keeper league? Malkin can put up over 100 points in a healthy season and Perry hasn't gotten close to 100 yet but I am in first place and want to remain there.

    • u cant get luongo and perry for malkin

    • I would hold on to Malkin. It sucks for the season, though this has been his worst season any way. Long term he is a work horse and will come back strong. Is there anywhere else you could beef up to make up for his point loss?

      • Well I really don't have to trade Malkin, I just want to make sure I don't slip out of first place. I also have Sid who hasn't helped in the last month. But the guy with Perry and Luongo on his team wants Malkin so I was thinking of a trade that could bring me those guys but I am not sure I want to give up Malkin and probably someone else with him to get those 2.

        Here are my forwards:
        S Cosby
        D Malkin
        D Sedin
        J Carter
        B Ryan
        R Kessler
        M Grabovski
        T Selanne
        C Kunitz

    • does that mean perry AND luongo? or perry OR luongo? if you're talking about getting both of those guys for an oft-injured guy who is about to have major knee surgery, then you're either: a) dreaming or b) making the trade with your girlfriend in exchange for a vacation or a diamond or some shit...

      I might make the trade for Perry. I'd only make it for Luongo if you're getting killed in GK stats year in and year out and there is no nope for you elsewhere (draft, prospects on your bench like Reimer or Khubodin, etc.). yah Perry hasn't had a 100 pt season yet but he's also only 25 so I'm assuming that it's coming and probably soon. you're gonna look like a genius if you get Perry a year or two before he starts posting 100 point season and meanwhile Malkin misses a bunch more time over the next few years with various injuries (which is starting to seem really, really likely).

      also, Malkin's value takes a major hit with Crosby being pretty much f***ed for life with those concussions. Bylsma and PIT's training staff are IDIOTS for sending him back out during the Classic and in that next game against TB, but that's a different story. bottom line is Crosby could EASILY be the next Marc Savard and that could seriously hurt Malkin's ability to post 100 point seasons. who's he going to do it with....jordan staal???
