    Jason Pominville Value

    Hey guys, i've posted a few times about my issues at defense, i am sitting on Jason Pominville who's been hot since the start, i'm just wondering where some of you fellow GM's rank him for value, what kind of d man you think would be a square trade.

    • Pommer was a top 60 player in 09. He had a slow last year. He looks like hes back to that level but better right now.. Id say his value is anywhere between a top 40 overall player and a top 60.

    • are you serious....pominville for burns? pominville is a complete stud and has taken his game to the next level and has benefited from the fact that this season vanek has also taken his game to the next level. He is a top 25 forward easily playing on a line with vanek and if you can get a top notch return for him dont trade him. You need to watch some sabres games, he is a completely new player this year, and thats saying alot because he has scored 70 points in the past.

      • Nice suggestion for value: not Burns.

        I stick to what I said before, and will elaborate by saying I wouldn't trade any of the Top 10 D according to the Yahoo! O-Rank, but would consider trading some of the guys ranked 11 and lower -- especially if I needed to upgrade at RW and didn't think I could do better on the FA (which I probably could, because the RW position is pretty deep). I don't think Pomy's going to maintain his present level of production, but you never know.

    • I think Pominville's been playing his brains out and won't keep up his current pace (and might get injured). He's good, but he's not this good. I'd try to trade him now.

      I'd be targetting guys who have been under-performing, like Subban, Burns, Pronger, Pietrangelo, or Goligoski (IR). Visnovsky hasn't done much this season either, and the owner might be frustrated enough to let him go if you're willing to wait a month for him to come off the IR.

    • bump.. would greatly appreciate some input to just help put him into perspective for me. i don't want to offend people with a ridiculous trade obviously, i want to get someone of equal value back however. i welcome all opinions.
