    Default Getting Ovechkin

    I'm thinking of offering my Fasth to the Hiller owner who is crippled by bad goalie stats for his Ovechkin. He wants another player so I am offering Voracek.

    Markstrom is available on FA and I already have Rask, Crawford and Backstrom.

    Is this a good move?

    Roster Before:
    C Toews, Kesler
    LW Hall, Vanek, Marchand (C)
    RW Giroux (C), Voracek, +Skinner+
    D Subban, Schultz, Visnovsky, Carle, Goligoski
    G Rask, Crawford, Backstrom, Fasth

    Roster After
    C Toews, Kesler
    LW Hall, Vanek, Marchand (C)
    RW Giroux (C), Ovechkin (LW), +Skinner+
    D Subban, Schultz, Visnovsky, Carle, Goligoski
    G Rask, Crawford, Backstrom, Markstrom

    I don't really know this other owner's knowledge, but if I had Ovy Fasth and Voracek wouldn't come close to a good offer, even with crippling goalie stats. Fasth is hot right now, and for all we know he's the real deal but you'd need to put in a Rask or Hall or Toews just to make that deal even.

    Trading two players while they're hot is always a good idea, I just don't think he'd take Voracek and Fasth (who even though is hot right now, is still fighting Hiller for playing time).

    If this does go through, I absolutely would pick up Markstrom. He's the future in Florida for a long time, and as much as they suck right now, one day they'll be good with all their talent (they have the best prospects in the league).

    I know it's rape and this owner isn't dumb...we play hockey together and I'm literally sending him trade offers after every shift lol the old wear him down strategy. I may need to add Skinner instead of Voracek. We'll see...

    Also keeper rules state that you can only keep one at -2 rounds from the draft position so Markstrom may not be as an effective keeper short-term as Fasth and I wouldn't want my one keeper to be a long-term solution.
