    Trade Offer

    I got offered:
    Andy McDonald and Cam Ward for Patrice Bergeron and Niklas Backstorm.

    Should I do the trade?

    • Sure - I am high on Ward (37 wins last year; trailing only Luongo and Price) and led the league in starts. Could have had more wins, but lost 10 OT games. McDonald is a solid player, when healthy and finished last year on a tear. St. Louis has a lot of offensive talent.

      Backstrom was about .500 last year, so a slight rebound is expected but not much. He plays on a team that has trouble scoring (and will again, even with Heatly) and is weak in D. Bergie is a stud and does all the little things to win games. However, he is not a scoring machine. If your league uses FW's, Shots, then he is your man. Otherwise, go with Ward/McDonald.
