    Default Is Bobby Ryan worth this?

    Need an opinion on a trade I was offered. I'm going for it this year. I was offered Zetterberg + Kesler for Bobby Ryan. I know Kesler is injured but will the points he puts up when he returns make up for the youth I lose in this trade?

    My team is pretty stacked as is and I may win regardless. What do you guys think?

    If you're going for it this year keep Zetterberg. Best case is that Zetts and Ryan break even in points, but I'd expect Zetterberg to outpoint Ryan this year.

    EDIT: I thought you were giving up Zetterberg. I'd say go for it.

    I was also offered...

    Ryan and Justin Schultz for B. Richards, Iginla and Garrison.

    I have really high hopes for Schultz but that is inticing.

    Thoughts?

    This is a tougher call than it looks like.

    For keeping Ryan:

    All that trade rumor garbage is in the past so he can now break out (power forwards break out later anyways...)

    He is probably one of your keepers at F?

    For Zetts and Kesler:

    If Ryan doesn't take the next step this season, Zetts will likely finish even with him in pts.

    And you're right, Kesler could come back and flare up to seal it for you.

    I think it comes down to:

    - if you think Ryan is going to break out this year, keep him.
    - if you think what you see is what you will get from here on out with Ryan, do the deal.

    I wouldn't make this move either. Garrison isn't going to be as much of an offensive factor as everyone thinks, and I'm a Canucks fan. Iginla is injured and getting older, and isn't Richards hurt right now as well? I would much rather have the Ryan/Schultz side in this.

    He's altered his offer.

    Schultz & Ryan for Thornton, Zetterberg, Goligoski and D. Hamilton

    I'd have to include Steen/Read and Pitkanen in the deal to even it out.

    Zetterberg and Kesler, in my opinion is a very good get for your Ryan. I would pull the trigger on the trade.

    Id do the Ryan for Zetts/Kessler

    I'd be hard pressed to give up on Shultz. Especially in a keeper league.
    Then again, his value may never be higher.

    But playing with NHL talent on the pp in the A, and with the number of lazy/out of shape penalties I expect to see, I have high hopes for Shultz. Especially early.
