I'm talking to the owner of Schultz as I'm both interested in acquiring him and getting my team as a whole younger as I really don't have a strong enough team to compete this year.
I can do one of the following:
JVR + Schultz
Havlat + Schultz
I'll say a few things with my experience in this league through offers sent/received + discussions (1) no one wants to move a goalie for anything but obscene overpayment so I am likely to need to wait for Markstrom or hope to get lucky with a waiver pickup (2) extracting young players is like pulling teeth (3) people seem hesitant to take anyone >30 years of age even if it makes them more competitive in the short term.
As far as the trade goes - I still see Zetterberg as ~PPG player for a few seasons. That being said, Schultz has the team around him to be the next Green. Don't see Karlsson upside with him, but he should a great offensive dman for years to come.
JVR has upside but who knows. Havlat is older, but if he stays healthy (which he did for 3 years prior to last season in SJ), he should still be a very productive player for a couple of years.
Am I getting enough back? I don't think I can get anything more from him frankly unless it is a shitty draft pick swap.
