Stamkos + for Benn +
20 team league, 7 keepers now, but next year becoming a dynasty league.
I give: Benn, Tarasenko, my 1st round regular draft pick (we keep 7) and my first round prospect pick.
I Get: Stamkos, Howden, his 3rd round regular draft pick (we keep 7) and his 3rd round prospect pick.
My Team is: D. Stepan, E. Stall, A. Shaw, J. Benn, A. Ladd, M. Martin, S. Ott, S. Doan, P. Kessel, K. Okposo, D. Alfreddson, N. Kulemin, K. Shattenkirk, L. Schenn, B. Seabrook, T. Hamonic, D. Morris, T. Ruutu (IR)
Tarasenko, Galchenyuk, Gormley, Watson, Whitney
Stats: G, A, +/-, PIM, Hits, PPP, SHP, SOG, BLK, W, GAA, SV, SV%, SHO
Here is how I see it: I give up Benn who is a multicat 70 point player, Tarasenko a top 5 prospect, and now one of the better players on STL, my 1st regular, who will be someone like Ott or Ladd, by 1st prospect pick, which will probably be low since my team is one of the best in the league. Tarasenko is the reason why I am thinking about not doing this trade. He is off to an amazing start, and I really did not want to trade him.
Second Side: Stamkos is Stamkos he is a top 3 player in the nhl, and the best goal scorer in the nhl. He is off to a pretty good start, and there is a chance that with St. Louis on his wing he will win the Art Ross this year, and for years to come. Howden is a pretty good, but not amazing prospect, don't know much about his multicat upside but will see what happens.
A lot to read, hopefully you guys will have some good opinions on the trade.
Thanks in advance
This might hurt you next year but on the whole it seems like a damn good deal. In the end you want to give yourself the best player in most deals and especially in limited keepers.
Understand you don't want to lose Tarasenko, you would still have Galy though
yeah just got galchenyuk actually in a big trade involving me trading perry, corvo, and silfverberg for kessel, hamonic, and galchenyuk also gave him a small pick upgrade, but was happy to get galch and hamonic who is a good multicat guy
Could you trade Galchenyuk and keep Tarasenko? If so, I'd be very happy indeed. Either way, I dont see how you can pass this one up.
True but it is becoming a dynasty league. And as much as I love Stamkos, I'm not sure I can recommend this with this league counting hits and blocks too. Benn can put up 80 points, hits, blocks etc too. That's nearly as rare as a 50 goal scorer, if not equally so to me. Plus, Tarasenko could be a solid scorer and multi-cat option too.

Just wondering if anyone has any more responses, the last post makes me hesitant to do it, because what he said was what I was thinking.
