    I wouldn't do that deal...leaves your G weak and you lose the best player in the deal hands down.

    Just looking at the players without considring positions, it's a definite win and I would make the deal.

    However, because it's roto, you are essentially replacing Flash and McDonald with Ryan and Ladd, and St. Louis with Kessel, and you're giving up a goalie. Looking at it that way, it doesn't make quite as much sense. I don't think the gains you make with the skaters outweighs what you lose with Varlomov because it is easier to cycle goalies to make up games.

    I wouldn't be worried about losing Varlamov and would move him for a solid offensive upgrade, but I dont' think you're getting enough of one here.

    If you were to move Varlamov, who are some of the waiver wire goalies? You could add Ellis to give you the Carolina tandem, or Bernier for LA, which would make moving Varlamov more palatable.

    Thanks for the opinions!
    Yeah i could have ellis or bernier as a 3rd option if i move Varly. I didn't really want kessel either and would prefer someone else. I have a feeing Kessel will struggle with Lupul injured.

    Don't do this deal. He's dumping his poop on you. B Ryan is inconsistent, Kessel is going to suck all year and you lose St. Louis and a starting G on an OK team. Ladd is more valuable in PIM and Hit leagues.

    Don't!
