Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
I was offered David Backes & Jonathan Quick in exchange for Steven Stamkos & Antti Niemi. Yahoo Standard.
Sounds like a very tempting trade considering that Quick & Backes are the #1 and 2 fantasy players over the past month. Also, my other goalies are Brodeur and Bobrovsky so Quick would provide a big improvement at goalie.
On the other hand, skaters are worth more in standard 6x4 leagues and I'm skeptical about giving up Stamkos. To that end, the next best pure scorer I have behind Stamkos is Moulson -- most of my team provides helpers. So it's basically a category trade off of a few extra goals by Stamkos verus the PIM Backes would give me.
What about a counteroffer either replacing Stamkos w/ Giroux or replacing Backes w/ Toews.
So Quick/Backes for Giroux/Niemi OR Quick/Toews for Stamkos/Niemi
Which would be better for me and which would you more likely accept if you were him?
Honestly as much as I like Quick, I don't think I like this deal for you. Stammer is a total gamer and overall way better than Backes, despite a good month for Backes. Quick puts up better numbers than niemi, but behind SJ Niemi is still pretty fucking good.
