A GM in my pool has thrown JT on the trade block and is trying to illicit offers for him. He is of the type who wants a severe overpay for him. He has a couple of other players that he says he would package but hasn't named them out right. His team roster is in the attached GM Roster pdf.
He also has his 2nd, 3rd, and 4th round selections in this years rookie draft which would equal the 18th, 27th, and 36th overall picks, and all of his 5 picks for next years rookie draft.Our available rookie pool is quite deep this year and there are a lot of good up and coming talent left on their. The list of available rookies not including the 2014 draft class are included in the attached Rookie Pool pdf..
I currently have 2 picks in the first round (1st overall, and 2nd or 3rd depending on standings), 2nd round(14th or 15th overall), 19th overall, 28th overal, and 37th overall. I am in last place with no chance of placing in the money for the regular season. THat being said we conduct a separate playoff pool using 15 skaters and 1 goalie from our keeper rosters. As of today, I have 10 for sure playoff players, potential of up to 13 on good teams that could go deep, so I have a shot of winning playoff pool money.
From my team in the sig, do I have enough to offer this GM to get Tavares plus pieces away from him? Based on my Roster, is Tavares a guy I should go gangbusters for and do whatever it takes? This GM is in first place overall with a fairly comfortable lead at the present time, 40 pts I believe on second place, and will be hurt by Tavares injury. His 3rd highest point getter is Okposo.
Do I stand pat with what I have, try and win some playoff money(1st in playoffs pays for whole season next year) and rebuild through rookie and free agent drafts in the summer, or try and make a trade to get Tavares + pieces and/or draft picks and remove any chance of potentially winning playoffs?
