    Default Help me land Crosby!

    Crosby's owner told me that he is ready to move him. Their is 3 players in my team that he likes: Giroux, Perry and Big-Buff but he hasn't said nothing more. What would offer to land Crosby?

    Not sure I can let go of Buff in our format. Is Crosby so much better over other fwd that Big-Buff over other D man? (D goals count for 2).

    If he is telling you he likes Giroux, Perry and Buff then I would start by offering one of either Giroux or Perry and a lesser quality skater, say someone like Eberle.

    Something like Giroux and Eberle for Crosby or Perry and Eberle for Crosby. To me, the best offer you should give him would be both Perry and Giroux. You don't want to start with your best offer. That should be your last offer, not your first. If you like Eberle, then pick someone else of similar quality to him to add to your offer instead.

    With your settings, I wouldn't want to lose Buff either.

    Good luck.

    If you want Crosby - then you have to pay the piper. Offer Perry and Eberle to start, see what he says. If i have Crosby and someone wants him, then they are going to pay for him.
    Crosby could outscore Perry by 40pts. If you want Crosby then you will probably have to give up Buff.

    What does his team look like? It would be helpful to see just where his holes are, and what he needs...

    I would offer him:

    Perry
    Either Sedin or Datysuk
    & Buff

    ...overpayment but you'd win longterm. Try and keep Giroux while still obtaining Crosby...that'd be HUGE.
