    Default Ryan & Niskanen for Saad, Maata, and Poirier

    First of cats are G A SOG GWG PPP SHP H&B FOW. 18 team league 4C 4LW 4RW 6D 1G


    Looking to make another splash on the trade market and have worked on a deal to obtain Bobby Ryan. Here is how it stands right now.

    Ryan
    Niskanen

    For

    Saad
    Maata
    Poirier

    Feel that Ryan is an upgrade on Saad right now and for the long term as well. No knock on Saad but don't see him as the elite winger that Ryan has flashed. Niskanen will probably not be close to matching his production this year either in Pittsburgh or more likely elsewhere. I think Maata will be a better player in real life than fantasy and project Justin Faulk type numbers long term. Poirier is just to even up the sides.

    Which side do you prefer

    Am I missing something?
    This almost seems like a veto-worthy trade to me.

    Ryan/Niskanen FTW.

    They are in a full strip down rebuild and want youth / depth I suppose.

    I'd make the deal for Ryan alone. I don't expect Niskanen to keep up the production he had this season but I feel Ryan will be much better going forward
