Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
I got Tavares and Varlamov
for Carter, Lehtera and Schneider
I am currently in a battle for first and this is an 8 keeper league with only one of them being a goalie. I have been shopping both Carter (hasn't been producing besides last night) and Lehtera (while his stock is high) for a while. My keepers are Crosby, Doughty, MacKinnon, Hall, Johansen, Neal, Byfuglien and Fleury. I also have Landeskog and Krejci so I wouldn't have been keeping Carter. My other goalies are Pickard and Smith. I know Varlamov is a huge risk but I am hoping that he will be back to his regular playing form when he returns.
Comments and thoughts would be appreciated. Cheers
This is the trade offer
I give Taveres
I recieve Lupul, B. Nelson and Josi
Normally I would quickly reject such an offer for a high end player like Taveres but this is a 20 team league that keeps 16 players. It is not easy to aquire 16 decent keepers. i am not going to accept this trade but am thinking of countering for kuznetsov, Nelson and Josi.
At this time Franson is outplaying Edler. No crystal ball but Franson is best for now..
Hedman over Carlson for duration of season,, all day , all season. If you can drop another D asides from Carlson get er done! Can't see Brodie and Flames keeping this pace and he is overachieving as is entire team in tough west conf.
Perry on RW and Dubs is LW/C both will give you PIM's but are different beasts and positions so pick up Dubs and watch CBJ move up in ranks (71 last 8) as they get healthy.
Forget Hudler, his careers numbers don't lie. He will cool down.
Anything else? LOL
As you know Oil are in the tank and most likely not going to get much better as season rolls along. Chances are they will drop even further and RNH will never get you anything near his wirth if on another team and will give you a terrible +/-, weak PIM's and mediocre PP's given they are in the strong West conference.
Not sure if Koivu is your best bet but I would recommend picking up a FA over Nuge.
Mike is right, only one team per league. See if commish can reassign one of the teams.
Trying to trade from one to another sounds and is bs.
It's a 10 team Standard League who would be your top three choices from each position in a league that counts G A PTS +/- PIM HITS PPP SOG and for goalies W SV% SA SO. I'm currently in second place. Here is my team, should I drop anyone or not? If so for who?
J.Thornton - C
J.Toews - C
Ovechkin - LW, RW
H.Zetterberg - C, LW
D.Sedin - LW
H.Sedin - C
Z.Parise - LW
W.Simmonds - RW
J.Lupul - LW, RW
J.Carter - C. RW
S.Downie - LW, RW
D.Keith - D
E.Johnson - D
C.Fowler - D
A.Edler - D
J.Howard - G
C.Crawford - G
M.Brodeur - G
Thanks for the advice but I dunno I'm hesitant to drop Carlson. His numbers look too good. I wanna have em both. Could you tell me why I should go w/. Hedman? Who would be your 2nd drop. Should I not drop Kuemper since I have 2 strong goalies in Fluery and Bishop?
Also if I could get advice with my other team. Been adviced to drop Carlson for Hedman, hesitant to do so, but would like to have both. Kinda considering Hudler or Dubinsky, I have Perry on the IR so I would have to drop someone later. I have Keith, Brodie, Vatanen, Doughty as my other Ds. Or drop Kuemper and rock 2 goalies with Bishop and Fluery
