Re: Trade Offer for Markström
Personally I’d be taking anything for him. Goalies sound like a premium in your league, but the amount of goalies that went from unknown/unowned in 2012-13 to owned in 2013-14 was a bit insane. However somehow, Markstrom still didn’t have a fantasy value. Martin Jones in a week went from unknown to 55 or 60% owned. Tim Thomas beat him out this yr, Clemmenson beat him out once, Theadore did too. He won’t be fantasy valuable until he becomes a backup in a defensive team, just like The Monster in Detroit.
I’ve drafted him 3 times now in a limited keeper league (like 13th round out of 16) just as a flier, and I always get rid of him. I know the ride to becoming a starting goalie is rough, but Markstrom is so far away it’s insane.
