    Did I screw up?

    I proposed this trade a week ago after a long night at the bar and forgot about it until it was accepted today.

    I give up:
    Vincent Lecavalier, C, TB
    Phil Kessel, RW, Tor (IR)
    Craig Anderson, G, Col

    I get:
    Marc Savard, C, Bos (IR)
    Alexander Semin, RW, Was
    Cristobel Huet, G, Chi

    Here's the rest of my team:
    Henrik Zetterberg, C, Det
    Olli Jokinen, C, Cgy
    Patrick Marleau, LW, SJ
    Ilya Kovalchuk, LW, Atl
    Paul Kariya, LW, Stl
    Devin Setoguchi, RW, SJ
    Shane Doan, RW, Pho
    Duncan Keith, D, Chi
    Kimmo Timonen, D, Phi
    Scott Niedermayer, D, Ana
    Michael Del Zotto, D, NYR
    Sheldon Souray, D, Edm
    Henrik Lundqvist, G, NYR
    Niklas Backstrom, G, Min

    I was thinking Anderson and the Av's won't keep up their outstanding play and trying to sell high. Now I'm having second thoughts. What do you think?

    • I think you got the better of the deal, plus Huet has picked up his game a bit lately and after the way he started out he can only get better with the Hawks team in front of him. I agree that Colorado will tail off and Anderson won't be such a great fantasy option.

      Semin will out score Lecavalier in virtually every offensive category and as stated above Savard is obviously better than Kessel.

    • Lecavelier is on a struggling team, granted he has tavares but Semin is far better, and Huet is going to do better than anderson because the Hawks are just a better team, and Savard for Kessel is a no brainer to me....I think it's a good deal

      • I think Greg Screwed up. Vinny does not have Tavares. He has St. Louis playing on his line and Stamkos on the PP.

        Vinny is so touch and go. Savard is out for awhile But I think you win this deal in the long run by alot. I would love to have Semin on my team., but some idiot in my league trade Luongo, Semin, Carter, Carle for Lundvist, Getzlaf, Neidermayer, Tavares and thought he was getting the better deal.

        Huet is starting to some game and even sharing time with Niemi, Huet is getting 2-1 starts and that means probably 55 games played and 30+wins sure will be god enough to offset.

        Anderson is the real deal as a goalie he showed that in FLA behind Vokun and getting tons of shutouts in games he played. But much the same it will come down to nights that COL will need to out score there opponent while getting out shot.

      • PS the depth of your team will make up any temporary difference right now..

    • getting semin is big.. believe it or not hes a point a game player.. as for getting huet.. idk bout all that.. i think chicagos gonna go to niemi as the regular starter in due time.. your goaltending isnt too shaky so id say you actually won on this trade

    • its fair
