    Help with possible trade....

    Ok, here’s the story

    When Miller was placed on IR I went and picked up Whitney. Now that Millers back I need to drop someone but can’t justify dropping Whitney because he has been on fire of late. Don’t really want to drop anyone on my roster but do want to get Miller back in my goalie rotation. Only solution I can think of is a two for one trade.

    What kind of return would I be looking at for a Whitney/Benn or Whitney/Kovalchuk???

    Think this would bring back a Marleau???? Or some one else who has been slumping a bit of late??

    Any other thoughts on who I could package together???

    C David Backes (StL - C,RW)
    C Vincent Lecavalier (TB - C)
    LW Milan Lucic (Bos - LW)
    LW Tomas Fleischmann (Fla - LW)
    RW Tyler Seguin (Bos - C,RW)
    RW Ilya Kovalchuk (NJ - LW,RW)
    D Duncan Keith (Chi - D)
    D Alex Pietrangelo (StL - D)
    D John Carlson (Was - D)
    D Jason Garrison (Fla - D)
    G Tomas Vokoun (Was - G)
    G Semyon Varlamov (Col - G)
    BN Derek Roy (Buf - C)
    BN Evgeni Malkin (Pit - C,RW)
    BN Ray Whitney (Pho - LW)
    BN Jamie Benn (Dal - C,LW)
    IR Ryan Miller (Buf - G)

    It’s a standard 12 team yahoo league…

    Thoughts opinions welcome..

    • Im not positive but i dont think your will be allowed to make a trade because you have a player no longer IR eligable filling an IR spot. Probably be a good idea to check into that before you rack you brain for trade offers.

    • Honestly I'd pkg Whitney and Ilya top try to score another strong blue liner. Or Roy and Ilya. Garrison is good, but unproven, Alex makes ice look warm this year, Carlson is really rocking, but will lose PP time when/if Green returns. I'd go for a big D like a Buff, Karlsson, if 1 year Lidstrom even. Or try for a goalie upgrade, None of yours have performed overly well. So trying to upgrade there would be wise. Shipping 2 forwards for 1 to free a spot for Miller is really a move to open a spot, nothing more, given your offense. I'm a firm beliver in trading to improve. I do agree I'd be hesitant to drop anyone there to activate Miller. Forcede to choose I'd ditch Varly or Roy, but a trade to upgrade would be better.
