    I would not. Had to think about it for a sec but 100 point guys are gold in limited keepers and should be treated as such. The price of gold keeps going up. Don't settle for silver. Not to say that Tavares isn't an incredible talent, I just see him as a 90-100 point guy not an 100+. Unless your other keepers aren't that impressive and replacing your worst with Eberle makes a significant improvement, I'd stand pat.

    Without additional info I say no. But how limited? And knowing the rest of your squad would ensure the best advice. Context is key.

    In a full keeper, I'd be inclined to say yes. In a limited, I would lean towards no. Unless there is information we're missing.

    This is my thinking.
    Depends on the rest of the team, number of keepers, etc.

    I think Tavares could be moving into the upper echelon soon enough -- wouldn't shock me to see him win a scoring crown or two.

    Agree with this! Exactly how many keepers? Is there positional requirements? Who would be the keeper Eberle is replacing? For argument sake the trade would then look like

    Malkin + (keeper to be dropped)

    For

    Tavares and Eberle

    Hey Guys,

    pretty much in line with my thinking....

    Its a 6 man keeper... My last keeper would be E kane... Although eberle would be a big upgrade, not sure it would be worth loosing malkin over.

    I'd take Malkin + E.Kane over Tavares + Eberle any day of the week.

    No chance I'd do this deal. Really doesn't need more explaining than that.

    I wouldn't even be sure that Eberle would significantly outpoint Kane in the near future, so I would not do this deal.

    I don't play in keepers but I imagine that in limited ones there could be some turnover in your bubble keepers year by year due to breakouts/slumps etc, so it's important to ensure that your best players are rarely downgraded. Keep Malkin.

    As is almost always the case, the best player takes the cake. Keep the Malkin.

    I agree with everything said. Don't think Eberle is much of an upgrade, if any, over Kane. The one thing I was going to say before knowing the limit was 6 is that Tavares, over his career has proven to be less volatile. I think he easily could be pretty constantly at 90-100 points and hasn't shown much propensity to get injured. Malkin for a full season will go over 100, but has so far proven to be less of a guarantee for a full year

    Can't say I'd see the value in moving Malkin for those two and losing Kane. Think of it as essentially trade Malkin/Kane for Eberle/Tavares. Its not a bad offer, and production wise you probably won't suffer all that much, but with Malkin you have the rare opportunity to acquire anybody else in the league you want, baring maybe Stamkos or Crosby. So ask yourself are either of these players the one guy you would want in the entire league?

    Also be careful. Rataylor22 hates it when you don't put the player's names in the title. Threatens to come to your house and rearrange your DVDs.
