You gotta get creative in your trade proposals. I had a team that started out with NO real goaltending. I now have Luongo and Nabakov as my two goalies and i still have Kovalchuk and Sundin as well as Kopitar, Frolov, Naslund. I had to give up Hossa, Gonchar, Phaneuf and others in two seperate deals to make it happen. Also time is of the essecnse. the sooner you get another goalie the better.The key for this team is to lockdown goaltending and look for the underated forwards and defence to carry you for those stats. Dont be afraid to trade your skaters for goaltending as you have a mych better chance of replacing them with players who are still productive enoguh to carry your offence.
They way i see it , your only gonna get nbakov or luongo if you give up heatly. try to work a deal where you give up heatly and emery for one of those goalies plus a top 30-40 forward. Look for underrated forwards with a low O-rank but decent rank numbers. Thats if your in a heads up league. If your in a rotissere league, try to go for one of the lower ranked goalies and keep heatly.
ok first of all lets start at ur goaltending get TIM THOMAS he has done me well so far for me. then dump smith he's a backup goalie keep turco, find a decent starting goalie like a toskala get rid of ur back up goalies never have them u need to get all starting goalies. DONT TRADE UR PLAYERS bad idea keep them. Now the defence u have to drop bieksa he injured pick up MIKE GREEN he is havin a great year. drop streit and pick up JOE CORVO another darkhorse keep keith he's ok and phillips is good for PIM and +/-. also for a reserve d-man pick up FILIP KUBA. ok now ur centres try offer modano if need be for a goalie and see how that is. dump kozlov absolutely useless player pick up a guy like MIKE RICHARDS or MIKE RIBEIRO try to get them both if u can, and dont touch or trade these players; Briere, Heatly, Shanahan. they are ur key players especially heatly. try to trade gagne for a decent player. ok and ur LW's. Dump voros dont know why u have him and zubrus too. pick up a LW in a trade but dont give up too much. now ur RW's. penner is ok trade bouchard dont touch heatly. and find a decent reserve RW in case of injury. and also keep camalleri and bernier they are good try to get ANZE KOPITAR or DUSTIN BROWN both are havin good years. anyways i hope i healped please respond and tell me what u have done im anxious to know haha. and if u need anymore help just ask ttyl good luck my friend.

i see what your saying but the thing is, im in a 14 team league so all of those players you named for me to pick up have been taken so i bassicly have to redo my team from trading. the reason i have people like Kozlov and Vorros is cause there is no one better in free agency.
Dump Emery and Harding. Pick up Bryz ??? from Phoenix. I did when he got traded from the Ducks and have done very well with his Sv% and Ga%. Check out the #s. Also, I'm in a daily league so I carry 3 goalies. In my weekly league, I only carry 2.
trade your centers like briere, you mite get biron or legace. Also chek if a tewam needs a center. Keep Heatly at all costs, hes gonna contribute maximum and consistenly to your scoring.
Trading centers is ur best bet as u can pick up FAs since center is a very deep position.
