    Default Sharp/Varlamov for Miller/MacaArthur

    Hey everyone. I've been offered Miller and MacArthur for my Sharp and Varlamov, team and cats in sig. I know you win a trade if you get the best player in the deal and Miller is clearly a prize. My goaltending is my weakest link as well. Should I pull the trigger on this, even with Buffalos struggles?

    I also inquired about the availability of Pavelec this afternoon and was offered Pavelec, Tedenby, D'agostini and Desharnais for my Varlamov, Boedker, Kassian, and Backstrom....yeah...no thanks...

    All advice appreciated

    I'd keep what you have. Sharp is a massive upgrade over MacArthur. The gap is way bigger than Miller over Varlamov. So I'd rather have the Sharp side.
    12-team Keeper pool, straight points for forwards & dmen. Goalies get: 2 points per win, 3 per shutout, 1 point per assist & 1 point per shootout loss.

    League champ in 2013 and 2015.

    Top 8 forwards, 5 dmen and 2 goalies count.

    We keep 15 players (any position) plus two rookies.

    Forwards: Ovechkin, Kessel, Pavelski, Stone, Voracek, Little, Benn, Iginla, Foligno, Kesler, Viraten
    Defence: Letang, Carlson, Shattenkirk, Yandle, Streit, Gostisbehere
    Goalies: Price, Fleury

    I find that the 'best players wins' is a bit overused on these boards as it's all about improving your team. Also, it's largely irrelevant who 'wins' a deal - you don't really win anything, rather if you fill needs then it doesn't matter who 'wins' or 'loses' a deal.

    That being said, I feel the downgrade from Sharp to MacArthur hurts you more than the upgrade from Varlamov to Miller, even though you would be improving your goaltending. So I would pass on the deal.

    By the way, you should also put how many you start in each position in your signature. It's an important detail to be provided especially when asking questions regarding possibly more depth players.
