Then clearly you didn't need to read it, because you already know how to use it. But I'm sure you've tried in vain numerous times to explain to others how to use to use a veto properly.

So who are you dropping to make room for the second player?
Think of it this way, you're trading Nash and dropped player for Iginla and Horton.
If your team can take that hit and is better for it, then you should probably do the deal.

Personally I'd be looking at Leopold and Yandle.

Corey Perry is a complete stud. The dude will put up numbers across the board, giving you 100+ PIMS which is something Franzen won't do.
Personally I'd much rather have Perry and for me it's not even that close.
Perry- 12 GP, 5 G, 7 A, 0 +, 31 PIM, 6 PPP, 21:03 TOI, 37 SOG
Franzen- 8 GP, 6 G, 2 A, 4 +, 4 PIM, 1 PPP, 14:57 TOI, 23 SOG
Those extra PPP and PIMS are gold.

Yeah old sell high buy low deal.
If it works you look like a genius, after all Drew Doughty can't play this bad all season, from here on out, he's definately the player of that group that you want to have.
That's being said, it's not very likely to be accepted. If you have great forward depth you may want to trade one to try to acquire Doughty.

Luongo is an absolute beast, and there are few in the league that can compare to him fantasy wise.
Dubinsky is a strong player, with 60+ pt upside, who contributes across the board.
Steve Mason is garbage, outside of his rookie season he's been waiver wire material at best. Since I've never drafted him I've never had to cut him, but I'd have no problem cutting him loose.
Phil Kessel is the most intriguing option going the other way in this deal. He's a legit goal scorer, so 40 should be within reach this year, as long as he establishes some consistency he should have no problem reaching 40.
Eric Johnson still has tremendous upside, and could post 40+ pts this season, but right now he's only a solid option nothing spectacular.

It's a fair offer, but it depends on who you would be picking up from the waiver wire to fill the void in your lineup.
For the sake of arguement Alex Ovechkin is the top left winger in the game- I say he's number 2 but that's neither here nor there.
I think that Bobby Ryan has the talent to be number 3 behind O-Show and Daniel Sedin, but until he finds that top tier he's a 70-75 pt, 40 PIM, +20, 170 H guy. Which is fantastic but that's considered a very poor season for O-Show.
Now to make up that difference you're throwing in a blueliner who has as much if not more upside then any player in the game today. Sure Drew Doughty has been horrible this year, but I attribute that to him missing camp with his contract hold out. Yes he worked out with the London Knight during that stretch but working out with kids is one thing, working out the players in the NHL is another.
He hasn't found his sophomore form that had prompted some to draft him in the late first, early second round last season.
There is no doubt in my mind that he will return to the 60 point plateau, but it seems too late to do so this season.
I think that you're giving up tremendous value in terms of 100 +pts, +30, 140 PIM, 280 H to get O-Show on your team.
Now that line represents what O-Show is capable of during a good season, but I think that paying full value is never a good thing.
Personally I would try to low ball the Ovechkin owner and try a hard sell that Ovechkin's numbers are on pace to be a near duplicate of last seasons "poor" showing, and that it would be wise for him to buy low on Ryan and Doughty while he still can.
Hopefully that helped, now if you're looking for more advice check out - http://fantasyhockeygods.wordpress.com/

13 pts, -3 (unfortunately), 4 PIM, 7 PPP, 32 SOG, 22 H over 13 GP.
It's a shame he doesn't pick up more PM. But 1pt, and 1.7 H/GP is a pretty good start.

I like Eric Bedard, and now that he's in Safeco he'll likely improve. Brad Penny plays in pitcher friendly Dodgers Stadium looks as if he can be counted on to deliver 15 wins a season.
Salty is to replace McCann obviously.
If you can afford to deal away Phillips speed and pop, and the saves that Wagner will give, I'd pull the trigger.
