    Ovechkin Dynasty Trade. I need expert advise

    The league is H2H format. Standard cats plus hits.
    I have been offered B. Ryan and D. Backes for my Ovechkin and Pietrangelo.
    I will not accept this trade but need to work on a counter offer. I am not too keen on selling low on Ovechkin plus I think Pietrangelo is a Norris trophy candidate for the next 10+ years.

    We can also include draft picks as we drop 3 players next year for a 3 round draft.
    Here is my team:

    C-Sidney Crosby
    C-Nicklas Backstrom
    C-Colin Greening
    C-Patrik Berglund
    LW-Alex Ovechkin
    C/LW-Alex Steen
    LW-Zach Parise
    RW-Cal Clutterbuck
    RW-Jakub Voracek
    LW/RW-Alexander Semin
    D-Alex Pietrangelo
    D-Mike Green
    D-Erik Karlsson
    D-Nick Leddy
    Util-Valtteri Filppula
    BN-Sven Baertschi
    BN-Sam Gagner
    BN-Ales Hemsky
    BN-Matt Martin
    BN-Erik Cole
    BN-Justin Faulk
    IR-Patric Hornqvist
    IR-Steve Downie
    IR-Brent Burns

    G-Carey Price
    G-Devan Dubnyk
    G-Josh Harding

    Some of his players that I am interested in are:
    C. Giroux, J. Benn, D. Hamilton, G. Landeskog,
    P. Kane, D. Backes, T. Seguin
    I have milder interest in B. Ryan, R. Getzlaf

    What should I counter offer with?

    • you are right in keeping Pietrangelo and I really like the advice of Matts, going for Benn and Backes (you could need the RW). But I really would try to get some goaltender if you want to trade Ovechkin... maybe offer him the combi of Backstrom-Ovechkin-Green for Benn-Backes and a goaltender...

    • ovy hasn't been playing well the last 2 years and his supporting cast sucks and will contunie to suck. he obviously wants to buy low on ovy so leave him in the deal but add gagner, since he's hot instead of Pietrangelo. then ask for j.benn and landeskog and see what he says. he may only give you one of them and throw back ryan but that's the direction you shuold take. you'll have to overpay for giroux and i think you should really push for landeskog and backes. good luck.
