    Default Skinner for R. Strome

    Just made the deal in my sim league (not the one in my sig). Only stats that really matter are G & A.

    I've been trying to move Skinner for the past year, got no real good offers. Last night I made this offer straight up for Ryan Strome thinking it was a place to start, and was a bit surprised to see it accepted this morning.

    I do think that Skinner has the skills but his injuries have made me very uneasy about owning him, and I think Strome could be as good as a healthy Skinner.

    Would love some outside feedback on this deal, rep as always!

    Steal IMO.

    Skinner could blow up the scoresheet again but I think it's more likely his carear blows up with one more hit.

    Great trade.

    Agreed. Great trade for you. Skinner's a talented guy, but his career is on the brink every time he hits the ice. Ryan Strome has definitely got the goods, and he plays on a dynamic team.

    The other GM may have trader's remorse.

    Don't know much about sim leagues, but to me Strome *> Skinner.

    Thanks guys, I figured it was a good deal but when you're so close to it it can be hard to be objective - this is a salary league too, so I'm getting $4M in cap space to boot!

    Strome>>Skinner. I do this deal and go drinking immediately afterwards.
    I can't promise I'll try but I'll try to try.

    Major win for you. Skinner is a bag of headaches at this point. No pun intended.

    Very nice deal.

    I do not think Skinner is as bad as his output in the past few seasons but I KNOW that Strome is a great young player that should get better as he adapts to the NHL.

    It would depend on the sim obviously

    but usually Skinners skating ratings are superior which can translate to more possession time

    Strome will perhaps have better passing but he is not a guy you want with the puck on his stick, except crossing the blueline or in the offensive zone at this point in his career. Skinner should be able to drive the play and setup linemates off the rush as well as finish a fair number of the chances he creates with his overall speed and superior skating.

    Having said that if the sim gives Strome similar skating ratings to Skinner than Strome is a no brainer.
    Consider Sim Hockey because guys who play shutdown minutes, deflect shots and clear creases build championships. Yet in fantasy they litter the unwanted UFA lists.
