Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
I give: Zdeno Chara, Jamie Benn, Tyler Seguin
I get: Steven Stamkos, Dustin Byfuglien, pick up FA
Available FA's: Smyth, Pacioretty, Prospal, Ott, Eberle, Hanzal, Kunitz, Landeskog, Jokinen, etc.
Chara hasn't really done a whole lot for me besides rack up a ton of penalty minutes in one week which isn't exactly a consistent statistic. I feel like Chara will be trending downward this season and Byfuglien will as well, but in the end I think Byfuglien will come out the better fantasy defender. What do you guys think? I'm willing to give up Benn and Seguin no problem for Stamkos.
i would make that trade for sure...you said it with giving up benn and seguin(both of which are going to cool down) for stamkos(the proven fantasy player). i would pick up Landeskog, Eberle, or Prospal in this order. or a 5th D so you can take advantage of byfuglien's multi positions.
would you post on my topic?
hope this helps
You really think this guy would accept this. What an awful trade. Byfuglien stops producing at around the end of december, and he has already wasted a month doing nothing. I still wouldn't take those 3 guys for Stamkos. Another crap deal giving quantity for quality. If the guy accepts it, he is a moron, and you are a genious for swindling someone so badly. Remember, he still has to drop someone to fit in the extra player.

No, I really do feel like there is a chance I can make this deal. The only thing I am worrying about is the fact that he has to drop someone because his whole team is doing at least pretty decently. He announced to the league that he was looking for LW and D, so I offered my best LW and my best D as well as another player that is doing extremely well. I just really hope he sees potential in the trade.
Also, which FA do you guys think I should pick up?
If this trade goes through, my team would consist of:
C - Steven Stamkos
C - Matt Duchene
C - Logan Couture
C, LW - Brad Marchand
LW, RW - Rick Nash
LW, RW - Ryane Clowe
RW - Corey Perry
RW - Jarome Iginla
RW, D - Dustin Byfuglien
D - James Wisniewski
D - Mark Streit
D - Corey Potter
D - Matt Carle
G - Henrik Lundqvist
G - Jimmy Howard
The guy I am trading with is slacking on D and LW so I figured he would like this trade. Chara would appear as an upgrade right now, and Benn is going to have a great year, also throwing Seguin in the mix, I don't see why he wouldn't accept this trade. Oh, and he is really stacked on C right now, so that looks even better for me.
absolutely. dustin will step it up and the fact that he can be used as a dman makes him all the more valuable. charas getting old and his offensive numbers will drop even though he is still a very good option at D. stamkos will be at the top of the leaders in scoring this year so hes always a great guy to have.
