Lots of questions...lots of coffee, get ready boys...here we go.
I'll start with last season....I couldn't trade Crosby for a player on IR. It was sad how other
GM's in a keeper league couldn't see the value long term. I understand we're all in it to win, but it's Sid??? I actually offered Crosby for Semin and some other non-keeper and was handily turned down..no counter at all. This repeated itself with 3 other GM's. Thank goodness no one else could see beyond the moment. I win this one. Well the same thing happened with Ovi yesterday, although this one was more in my favor. I offered Ovi/Souray for RNH/Subban. I was expecting a counter offer that never came. Keep in mind RNH hasn't exactly blown up the league either.
So I ask, will this one work out the same way in the long run or is Ovi a fringe keeper at this point in his career.
I want to trade Ovi just to get rid of the frustration factor and I have Yak or Byfuglien waiting in the wings to possibly take his spot as my 4th.
Would Ovi for Karlsson be a fair trade that helps me THIS season? Or is am I under valuing him? Ok I'm done...for now.
Edit: I should add that I was making a huge run and adding depth may have put me over the top last year. At the point I made those offers it looked like Sid was done for the year.
