    quick advice please!?

    I was offered Jimmy Howard for a combo of either Lupul or Versteeg and either Kiprusoff and Backstrom(G).

    So it is a 2 for 1 for howard. What's the best 2 man combo and is this worth it?

    Keeper. Only other goalie is giguere. Help please! It'll take two seconds and ill look at all of your advice thanks guys

    • Well if you can afford to lose Lupul and offer him Backstrom I'd go for it! Depending on if the T. Thomas goes through then having him and Howard would be killer. I have them both in my league. Then you could pick up someone to fill in Lupul's spot. Win win I think. Hope it all works out for you.

    • I'd go the Kiprusoff/Backstrom for Howard trade. The first 2 are too good. It's a tough one, because Kipper is sitting at 16 wins and Backstrom at 9 and Howard has 20 but I think the trade will pay off in the end. Kip doesn't have Howard's GAA or SV%. The trade opens up a spot on your roster to add another goalie if there is a decent one still available in your league's player list. Between 3 goalies you should be well off in the goalie department. Howard is just too good to pass up.

      • Thank you a ton for your reply. I'm really on the fence. But the guy only wants Lupul AND one of those two goalies. I was thinking Kipper because Backstrom has the better stats (minus the wins) and Howard should make up there.

        *But, I did offer Kipper and Loui Eriksson for Tim Thomas in my league! Let's hope for that to go through. With that said, what do you or anybody else think now?
