Trading for Karlsson
After Karlsson got hurt, I made an offer to his owner is this league:
12 Team Yahoo H2H Keeper, Keep 8 each year
C,C,LW,LW,RW,RW,D,D,D,D,Util,G,G, 5BN's, 3IR's
Offered him Yandle+ for Karlsson. Top 6 make the playoffs, and the other guy is around 8th right now. I made the offer, pushing that Yandle could help him make a push for the playoffs, with Karlsson gone for the year; and from my perspective, that I could cover for Yandle's contributions with a waiver pick up, somewhat. He declined, saying he would need to have one of my top guys like Giroux, Malkin or Ovie involved to consider it.
So, should I consider moving any of my Big Three, for the big chance to get Karlsson? I usually end up keeping 5 F's, 2 G's, and 1 D-man each year (Yandle has been that D-man each of the last 3 years). Big upgrade there if I could get Karlsson.
Out of my Big 3, I think Ovie is the only one I'd consider including here. Can I make up for Ovie's numbers with what I have or could pick up off the wire? At the rate he's going, I think yes. But he's Ovechkin! Anyway, would you pursue this?
My 8 Keepers in bold:
C: Giroux(C,RW), Plekanec, Tlusty(C,LW), Boyes(C,RW)
LW: Ovechkin(LW,RW), Benn(C,LW), Elias(C,LW)
RW: Malkin(C,RW), Seguin(C,RW), Gagner(C,RW), Voracek
D: Yandle, Campbell, Hedman, Schultz
G: Lundqvist, Crawford, Brodeur
Thanks for any input.
