    Will this trade help me improve? I can't decide!

    I get: Malkin
    I give: Lateng, J.Staal

    *Players involved in trade*

    My team:
    Kesler, M.Koivu, D.Sedin, Vanek, *J.Staal*,
    Skinner, Boyes, Kunitz, Purcel, (Franzen ir)
    *Lateng*, J.Schultz, Goligoski, Doughty, Suter
    Niemi, Miller, Crawford

    I will be a player short so i can activate Franzen when ready.
    Untill then possible FA adds:

    P.A, Marchand, Simmond, Yakupov, Ladd, Plakenec, Perron, Filppula, Paciorety

    Greene, Burns, Hamhuis, Garrison, Faulk, Girardi, Kulikov, Hamilton

    • Nice Team!

      As everyone will agree Malkin is one of best players to own in fantasy. But key ? is will Lateng and Staal match the production of Malkin in total? I think yes and prob. more. Lateng skates top pp and gets plenty of ice same goes for Staal. Malkin is with Neal so its a great line and he will have pts, fw, shots, a few hits and ppp.

      Having said that if you trade my pick to try and replace some Lateng pts would be a risk on the underproducing Burns.

      I could be completely wrong lol im just a girl!

      • Key is not whether Letang and Staal match Malkin but rather will they match Malkin and whichever player you pick up on waivers. Usually, the team getting the best player wins the deal. Malkin is the best player in the deal by far. Comparing stats to now, Malkin has 17 pts vs the other two's 23 (let's throw in a couple more for Letang for when he was hurt so 25). Is there a player in FA with 8 pts? Sure is.. Perron has 12. No contest, take it
