    Should I make any of these offers?

    I'm in a 12-team H2H fantasy league and looking to make either of these offers to try and improve my team for the playoffs (I'm sure I'll get in). What do you think? If you think maybe there's no way the other manager accepts, let me know what I can throw in to try and negotiate.

    Trade 1: I get Perry, Spezza, Corvo and give up Iginla, Lupul, Kronwall

    Trade 2: I get Brodeur, Kovalchuk, Spezza, Corvo and give up Jonathan Bernier, Perron, Lupul, Kronwall

    Trade 3: I get Ryan Miller, Spezza, Corvo and give up Bernier, Lupul, Doughty

    My team is C - Brunner, Couture, J. Staal, LW - Perron, Elias, Lupul, RW - Jeff Carter, Iggy, Clarkson, Gaborik, D - Chara, Doughty, Kronwall, Ekman-Larsson, G - Schneider, Hotlby, Bernier

    So are either of these offers good to make?

    • If I were the other team, I wouldn't do any of those, unless perhaps it's a keeper league, and Bernier would then be useful once he receives a new contract and starting spot with a different team. There'd also be no way I'd trade any combination of Spezza, Kovy, Perry in the same transaction; that's building block talent for the remaining roster.
      You'd probably be hard-pressed to add Oliver E-L or Chara in the deal, but that's probably what it's going to take. Brunner is trade bait in a keeper league. If not, then Couture, Elias, Clarkson, Schneider all make good bait as well for both for one-year leagues. It all depends on what the other team needs, if anything. What stats are counted?
