    Default Talk me off the ledge, please

    I admit, one of my biggest struggles early in the season is having patience with my players and with my team. And dammit, when I propose a trade offer to another league GM, I want a response now! (haha)

    But seriously, I'm in a new keeper league and considering this trade. I do believe if you ain't tradin', you ain't tryin'!

    This league is so deep and LW's and goalies are at a premium and therefore, seem to have more value.

    The manager is wanting either Yakupov or Hertl, obviously I'd rather give up Hertl, his fast start notwithstanding. I know Yak has started slow, but would HATE to lose him:

    Yakupov or Hertl
    Dubnyk

    I receive
    Benn

    I think we are only keeping 5 players for next year so need to pare my keepers down a little. I'm leaving myself thin in G but focused more on next year.

    Thoughts. Team is the keeper below:
    18-team! H2H Keeper League (10-keepers)
    G, A, PTS, PIM, +/-, PPG, PPP, GWG, SOG, Hits, BLK (11)
    W, GAA, SV, SA, SV%, SO (6)

    C: Giroux,Benn,
    Bjugstad,
    LW: Pavelski,Tatar,Roussel
    RW: MacKinnon,Rantanen,Simmonds,Wingels,
    D: Ekblad,Trouba,Hanifan,Phaneuf,Del Zotto,Gudas,

    Hertl and Duby for Benn is a great upgrade for you, I'd do it.

    I would be okay with Hertl and Dubnyk for Benn.

    Especially in a limited keeper.

    Cheers

    Well i like this move for this year, and I think it gives you better trade value when you want to pare down by packaging players for an upgrade, so like the other before me - thumbs up.

    Agreed, Hertl/Dubnyk for a proven stud like Benn is a good deal, I'd take it.

    I was pretty comfortable with it as well, as much as you hate to lose a player (in this case Hertl, as well as a starting G), I'm pretty happy.

    Appreciate you all reaffirming my thoughts.

    Thanks fellow Dobberites!

    Good deal.

    If you are focused more on next year, I'd try putting together a few more deals like that.

    You can afford 2 for 1 deals if you are thinking longer term.

    Good luck.

    Thanks, my thoughts as well. I have been quite fortunate in my attempts to grab players like Hertl, package them with another player and flip for stronger keepers.
