    Default Guy wants niemi back after dropping him

    I grabbed Niemi off waivers, a newer guy to the league dropped him: my team is below.
    I am pretty sure the other guy wants him back, what can I offer to score on this deal?

    4 man league, H2H, 3 goalie appearances needed per week, 3 moves per week
    G, A, +/-, PIM, PPP, SOG
    W, GAA, SV, SO

    My team:
    C: Crosby, P.Kane, H.Sedin
    LW: Nash, Lucic, D.Sedin, Marleau
    RW: Pominville, Hossa, Backes, Kessel
    D: Suter, Weber, MDZ, Shattenkirk
    IR: Hartnell
    G: Lundqvist, Fleury, Price, Niemi

    His team:
    C: Toews, Sharp, Getzlaf, Elias
    LW: Vanek, Neal, Kovalchuk, Couture
    RW: Malkin, Yakupov, Gaborik
    D: Timonen, Ehrhoff, Chara, Keith, Pietrangelo
    G: Miller, Crawford, Lehtonen

    While were at it, clarkson, ribeiro, selanne, kopitar, iginla, b.richards, benn, franzen, skinner, steen // enstrom, streit, subban, campbell, all available FA's

    Will definitely rep for help on this one

    What the heck... forget the trade, I'd make these moves right now.

    Kopitar for H.Sedin
    Benn for Lucic
    Subban for Suter

    Next week I'd find room for Skinner
    10 Team Yahoo Roto
    Keep 3F, 1D, 1G (to max 2 years unless franchise keeper)
    3C,3LW,3RW,4D,2G,2BN,2IR Roto-play 85games/position
    Player: G, A, +/-, PIM, PPA, PPG, HIT, BS SOG, FW
    Goalie: W, GAA, SV, SV%, SHO

    C: (F1) Tavares, Stastny, Carter
    LW: 1-Hall, Pacioretty, B.Schenn
    RW: Mackinnon, Nyquist, Hornqvist
    D: 1-Carlson, Josi, Faulk, Franson
    G: Andersen, Mason
    BN: Jones, Niemi

    #- denotes number of years I have kept a player. 2 = I need to trade him this year, (F1) = Franchise Keeper, up to 4 years.

    I need Lucic for PIM, you dont think Henrik will turn it around with Vancouvers recent success? Suter is definitely shit, agreed on that one - weber is screwing me over too!

    These are all the FA defensemen in the league:
    Campbell, Enstrom, Streit, Subban, Green, Kronwall, Markov, Phaneuf, Schultz, Seabrook, Johnson, Wideman, Bieksa

    I'd offer Niemi and Henrik for Malkin and then pick up Benn/Kopitar and drop Suter for Subban. Henrik may pick it up, but he does nothing but get assists. Barely even shoots haha. Benn and Kopitar are much better across the board.

    With Lundqvist, Fleury, and Price, I think you`d be set, no need for a fourth goalie.

    My thoughts are... Your leagues a joke. Quit wasting ur time making threads u should win easily... If ur able to get niemi. Skinner and Jamie freaking Ben for nothing I wouldn't wry about trading. Look at the d too subban and enstrom who leads dmen n pts I think... Pshhh tell him to piss off. I am curious however what part of the sharks 6-0 start screamed drop this guy

    With only a 4-team H2H league, your league is about who can win the playoffs. How does that work with just 4 teams? Do you all make the playoffs?

    Here's what I'd do: Check your goalie schedules for your "playoff weeks".
    It takes a while, but go to those weeks and map out your team's full list of games. Find out where all your goalies play on the same nights and which nights you could use an extra start. The goalie you request from his team should be able to get you a few more starts than Niemi. The same concept applies to skaters. It's a lot of effort, but you will be greatly rewarded come those weeks.

    Hey Pengwin,

    The commish made it so that there are NO playoffs, so basically we will know the winner way before the end of the season I figure!

    OK. Then find the "same night tool" that is posted by rjfisher. Use that to check your conflicts with goalies.

    Offered Zetterberg for my Niemi/H.Sedin or Niemi/Weber

    I could pick up Benn,Skinner, Kopitar // Enstrom, Streit, Campbell
    I was doing fine without Niemi so I know it sounds stupid but I dont really need him, could get zetterberg and pick up a FA that is currently outperforming sedin/weber
