    Default Buy low?? Forsberg/Kuznetsov

    Team in Signature. My co-manager and I are talking about the following trade:

    Giroux and Johnson for Kuznetsov and Forsberg

    This trade looks interesting, since I think both Forsberg and Kuznetsov will pick it up. Giroux just seems like a large price. Thoughts? Advice for counter offers? Thank You!

    Currently in second place, so not as worried about winning right now as winning in the future.

    I'd keep Giroux and Johnson. Giroux is guaranteed to get 60+ while Johnson should be similar to Kuznetsov ROS. Not too confident in him.

    With your cats, I would stick with what you have in a 1-year. Kuz doesn't shoot much and he isn't producing any PPP at the moment. Forsberg is starting to produce but I much prefer the consistency of Giroux combined with the situational context surrounding TJ (no Stamkos).

    I too would keep Giroux. If this was last year, it's a fairly even deal. You're not exactly buying low if you're trading Kuz.

    Giroux is too much to pay. Remove Giroux and add a B+ forward and then maybe I would give this transaction the green light...

    You should be getting Kuznetsov for a deal right now or not at all.
