    Default What would you take for Saros?

    20tm salary cap keeper league in signature.

    Although Saros is my future, I am weak at goalie now. What would be the bare minimum you would consider trading him for at this point and time?

    There is the scenario of trading him for draft picks. This may be good overall, but does nothing for me now and weakens my goalie future. I would think he would command at a minimum two 1st round picks and one 2nd round pick?

    There is the scenario of trading him for a current NHL starter. Depending on the current NHL starter, thinking it would be say Markstrom/prospect/draft pick(s) for Saros or Fleury/prospect/draft pick(s) for Saros?

    Or, just keep him and wait it out a few years?

    Just a few scenarios floating around in my head.

    Opinions?

    Your value of Saros seems way out of whack to me. There is no chance that you can get Markstrom or Flurey for Saros straight up let alone them adding prospects and draft picks.

    Or expecting two first rounders for him in a start 1G league.

    But you know this league better than us I guess.

    FWIW, the owner who owns Saros in our league (on his farm team) was trying hard to cash in on the little bit of hype around him and move him to multiple teams in our league. There were no takers.

    Do you have a farm? How many keepers?

    As mentioned above, in a league that starts only one goalie, I would think that he has next to no value.

    He has value because it's a 20 team salary cap keeper... But you need to keep in mind, he's the shortish (equal with Halak) goalie in the NHL, and behind a solid goalie in Rinne for the next few years...

    Expecting anything close to 2 1sts is crazy, you're better off just holding him and hoping Rinne faulters sooner rather than later. You might be able to squeeze out a 1st from a rebuilding team if you're lucky, expecting anything more would be pushing it
    Not THAT hairy, honest!

    These trades make little sense to me. The only thing I do that Rinne is a solid starter, but those prices are bananas.
    I mean: trading all that for Sorokin, a guy who may never come over, is insane.

    I get that it is a 20 team league with one goalie that's counts 5 goalie stats, but you only have 5 keepers and no farm team, so why even trade for Sorokin or any other long term prospect short of a McDavid/Matthews/Matthews type?

    As for Saros: If ppl are throwing money a thing anything that moves, take a shot with Saros I guess, but the prices vs. return has left me speechless. It seems your league, you know the owners and expectations best.

    So Rinne went for two first basically.

    Why do you think Saros will fetch the same?

    I'm with Mr. Guru. Rinne for two 1sts -- sure. Saros for two 1sts -- not for another couple of years. As suggested above, you might be best to hold onto him for a couple of more years. But like you've said, if guys are throwing around picks at goalies, of course, start your ask high, and see what happens. I think you will turn a lot of guys off if you declare that you want two 1sts. Instead, just put his name on the block, with no return attached, and see what comes your way.

    In a dynasty format with 20 teams and a cap, this price would make sense. Goalies in a 20 team league is a nightmare to manage and getting your hands on a future starter would be expensive.

    With that said, if this is a keep 5 with no farm team, I can't imagine he's a keeper for anyone. Not sure why anyone would trade for him. No harm in trying I suppose.

    The more likely scenario is that he's redrafted in the 3rd to 4th round.

    I can see that Rinne trade going down, but that Sorokin trade is crazy in this format or any format
