Re: Trade advice please (REP)
I like deal two...
Logan Couture was on pace for 67 points last year so call him a 70 point player, Good Plus Minus, Good Power Play Points, Good SOG Only 25 years old should peak around 70 points and do so for years to come
Milan Lucic 59 Points missed two games so call him a 60 point player, Great plus minus, Great PIM's, and if your league counts hits awesome hits as well. 26 years old, should see at least 3 more years of him in power forward beast mode.
Paul Stastney- On pace for 69 points call him a 70 point player on Colardo and a 60 point player on St.Louis He's not a real stat filler but good on the offensive stats and will get plenty of looks on the Blues. 28 years old, again should have at least three more solid years
In the end you get a multi Cat Stud, and a steady 60 point producer for one 70 point guy. I think the age is irrelivant because I think all three have at least three good years left at there current production rates.
As for the your prospects you only need to drop one in which I would go with Scheifele from looking at your centers. This guy won't sniff your top three in the next three years unless you hold on to him for trading purposes. Besides you get Stastney back which will be a soild 60 point option if any one gets injured. Too many times people put huge emphasize on prospects which I feel is relevant if your rebuilding but in your case your in full fledge win mod. I would make the trade as with your team you will be hard to beat in the next three years.
