Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
Standard H2H league - G, A, +/-, PPP, PIM, SOG, HITS
RIck Nash (@VAN)
Brandon Dubinsky (COL)
Radim Vrbata (WPG)
Ryan Kesler (NYR)
I'm currently leaning toward benching Vrbata or Nash, but I was looking for a couple other opinions.
Keep in mind that this league includes hits (0.4 fp each) which certainly boosts Dubinsky's and Kesler's stock.

He switches back and forth because Hitchcock is never satisfied with a solidified lineup (he literally changes the lines every single game). He's actually one of the best players in the league at faceoff draws.
Who would be the winner out of this deal? I would be getting Vanek. My personal opinion, I think Pacioretty is underachieving a bit and is capable of a lot more scoring than he is currently producing. The thing that I like about Vanek is the possibility of him being moved to a contender and his dual eligibility is nice too. I'm actually currently in need of a RW right now.

Great move. Eberle is very overrated in fantasy. He's not a shoot-first type of player, he always has a terrible +/-, and he rarely gets any penalties. Pacioretty and Wheeler are both pretty underrated actually, and if your league has hits, you are walking away with a steal. Pacioretty is the best player in the deal, and he's actually underperforming in my opinion.

I'm going to say Landeskog especially if the league includes hits. He's a great fantasy asset with the ridiculous amount of shots and hits he takes.

Good trade for you. I honestly don't even know what the other guy is thinking. Couturier isn't even fantasy relevant at this point in his career.

Gudas is the 5th highest fantasy scoring defenseman in the league right now (assuming your league includes hits). Definitely not a no-brainer. Drop Killorn instead. He was only really playing well when he was on a line with St. Louis AND Stamkos.

Yeah, it might be a little confusing at first, but he went off the ice right after he made the pass that got him the secondary assist. If you watch the highlights, Schwartz, Tarasenko, and Sobotka are the forwards on the ice. Then, he was on the ice when Brenden Dillon scored his goal, which made him a -1. Then he evened it out when he scored his own goal.

It obviously depends on who team B is going to have to drop to make room for the extra player, but I think it's pretty much a safe trade for either side. Ovechkin is obviously the best fantasy player in the game, but Perry is top 5 as well. Throwing JVR in the mix (granted he's struggling a bit lately) mostly evens it out. JVR should pick his game up pretty soon, I can just feel it.

Kane easily. He's a fantasy juggernaut. Even when he's not scoring he puts up just as many fantasy points as anyone else in the league.
A manager in my league is trying to sell low on Giroux and Neal, but I would have to send Tavares and Nielsen the other way. Obviously the side I would be getting has more upside, but they have been kind of unreliable so far this season. Looking forward, would you rather have Giroux and Neal or Tavares and Nielsen?
