    trade of epic proportions

    I have just traded Anze Kopitar and Mike Smith for Thomas Volkun and Mikhail Grabovski.

    I am in a 16 team league.

    Here is my team prior to trade:

    Anze Kopitar
    Luke Adam
    Thomas Vanek
    James van Riemsdyk
    Michael Grabner
    Steve Downie
    Kris Letang
    Dion Phaneuf
    James Wisniewski
    Kevin Bieksa
    Mikko Koivu
    Steve Ott
    Daniel Alfredsson
    Simon Gagne
    Martin Havlat

    Carey Price
    Mike Smith

    Here's my team after trade:


    Mikhail Grabovski
    Luke Adam
    Thomas Vanek
    James van Riemsdyk
    Michael Grabner
    Steve Downie
    Kris Letang
    Dion Phaneuf
    James Wisniewski
    Kevin Bieksa
    Mikko Koivu
    Steve Ott
    Daniel Alfredsson
    Simon Gagne
    Martin Havlat

    Carey Price
    Thomas Volkun

    Goaltending counts for 4 categories in my league, so I need two capable goalies, and I feel I now have that. I got crushed 3-6 in first week because of goaltending...

    I know Kopitar is filthy, but I needed a goalie, and I think I'm only losing 20-25 points, as I subtract Kopitar, and add Grabovski.

    I feel those points will be more balanced when Havlat comes off IR and is slotted into my starting lineup.

    FYI, I was trying to acquire another goaltender, ie Fleury, Bryzgalov, Marty for Kopitar, but those other teams already had great centers, and didn't need Kopitar..
