Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
Ok, so I'm a big Hossa fan and I've been waiting, and waiting and. . .well waiting for him to get a spark and go on a streak of at least some consistent play, like he did at the start of the season. But its not happening. He's been hampered by sickness and injuries most of the year. I'm gonna try to shop him around and see if I can get anything in return but if that doesn't work. . .is it time to drop him?
Lol and this thread was supposed to be about Hossa. . .boy it got off track.
I think what I'll do in the long run is wait maybe a game or two, and if Hossa doesnt put in some consistent hockey, I'll end up dropping him I think.
Well the person Im trading to wasn't offended so I guess it really doesnt matter, huh?
And seriously, the only reasons it sounds absurd is because all that stands out is the big goal disparity between the players. But Kunitz in leagues that have PIM as a scoring cat (such as mine), make him near the same value as Sedin. Here's what I mean:
Here's some of Sedin's stats for the season so far:
G 29 A 44 PIM 22 SOG 117 HITS 8
Ok, granted those are some pretty nice 3's for goals and assists. Heck Kunitz and Hossa combined have only 30 goals. But Kunitz easily makes up for any lost value by having:
PIM 43 HITS 119
The league I'm in is a high scoring one so for the whole season Kunitz has 449 pts, and Sedin has 509. Thats not a horrible difference, if you add in Hossa I think that's pretty fair. If I was in that position, I would have no problem trading Daniel.
There's still some decent options left on the waiver wire. Im actually surprised no one in my league has picked up Troy Brouwer, hes having a career year and has monster pts in my league. Im would for sure drop Hossa for him, but Im waiting to see if I can pull off this trade first:
Chris Kunitz and Hossa for Daniel Sedin.
I would get a superior LW to replace Kunitz and that would give me the space to pick up Brouwer. We'll see how it goes.
