Well like you said they still have to drop someone to facilitate the trade, so you're in fact losing three players off your roster, not two - so the vallue of that third player needs to be factored in. But yes, whoever gets Crosby wins the trade something fierce.

Well if you are giving up Crosby you have to factor in the value of the third player you'd throw in since trades can only happen with an even number.
Assuming it's even a marginal player I wouldn't do it. You're giving up so much offense for basically a good goalie and a couple of second-tier forwards. If you're the side trying to get Crosby good luck in it being accepted but if it is consider it a steal. Hopefully you're goaltending will withstand the loss of Quick though.
All four of my goalies are confirmed to start tonight.
Lundqvist home to NJ
Smith @ STL
Halak home to PHX
Varlamov @ CAR
Pick the two you'd start.
I'm thinking Lundqvist and Varlamov...

The problem with that advice is that this is a 6 team league, meaning there are still some other high-end goalies available. Varlamov is statistically the best of what's left though. I only have 3 bench spots reserved for skaters because I already picked up an un-drafted goalie (Halak). Having 5 is useless when only 2 can be dressed at a time.

The problem with that suggestion is that there are only 6 teams in this league. There are plenty of good goalies still available for pickup. Aside from Varlamov, there is still Mason, Schneider, and Hiller available for the cheap price of dropping your worst player.
Between Smith and Anderson who would you dump?

Team A wins - easily. Both players that team A gets are in the upwards part of their careers and will only get better, especially Jones. Grabovski will never peak his previous best seasons and Chara is well in his 30s now.
I'm in a H2H league and yes, Varlamov is still unclaimed since the draft. Which of the following goalies would you drop for him - if any...
Mike Smith, Henry Lundqvist, Jaroslav Halak, or Craig Anderson. I'm debating mostly between Anderson and Smith, thinking moreso dropping Anderson.

If our league includes PIM I'd pick up Downie - who has the same offensive upside as Brouwer anyway. Monahan is worth a shot as he's playing well but he'll probably cool off at some point.

Don't do it for the simple reason that Eriksson is concussed and who knows how long he'll be out of the lineup for. He may be out weeks, months, or the whole season. The other team is trying to trade an injured player for a up and comer.

I don't think there is any rush for someone to grab him. Last season was abysmal for him and he's only getting older and pushed farther down the depth chart on SJ. Let him come back and see how he performs before you drop someone.
I'm in a H2H league and my goalie stats are GP, GS, W, SO, Save %.
My current goalies are Lundqvist, Halak, Mike Smith, and Craig Anderson. Varlamov is still a FA in my league and I'm thinking of picking him up because I'm starting to believe COL's start is not just a fluke. Who would you give up to get him, or would you not drop any of these guys for him? I'm mostly debating between Smith and Anderson - leaning towards Anderson.
