    Default Thoughts on Offer

    17 team, 32 man roster keeper league.

    G=2, A=1, +/-=.5, PIM=.2, W= 4, L= -1, SO= 5.

    17 players protected at the draft, players under 40 games exempt. 5rd draft every year.

    Habs and Price killed my championship caliber team last year, and I started a mini/quick rebuild. Offered this:

    My Benn
    for his
    K. Connor
    19 2nd
    22 2nd

    Love Kyle Connor, but gut tells me I need a better return.

    Thoughts?

    I wouldn't do this if you had a championship caliber team last year. If it was good last year, its still good this year. I would look for a better offer. Draft picks can only help you win this year, if you can flip them for a profit.

    Trust your gut. Because we can't be 100% on Connor's linemates or PP usage and you're in contention, stick with Benn.

    Not sure what other Habs you have but since you say Price was a big part to losing the season I'd just hang tight or try to address your goalie situation specifically in case he bombs again which I doubt happens, I bet he comes back focused.

    Put me in the column that Connor, although talented, was put into a near perfect situation that made him look better than he is.

    This right here for me as well. If I'm trading Benn for a breakout candidate and some picks, I'd much rather have someone who looks like more a sure thing to be a play-driver, as opposed to someone more at the whim of their line mates. Especially if you're set to compete again this year. If I'm competing, I don't see any reason to move Benn for anything less than a stellar offer.

    We are talking about Jamie Benn right?!?!? Yowzers no! In this setup Benn had to be, what, a top 10-15 player (G=2, A=1, +/-=.5, PIM=.2,)? These are the players you win with. Last year Benn had 36 goals, 43 assists, was a +20 and took 54 PIMS. What a stud!

    we're talking a 2022 - 2nd rounder? Man, shouldn't even be allowed to trade picks 5 years away. Most leagues don't LAST 5 years. You need immediate returns. Connor's a decent starting piece, but get immediate returns along-side that piece. Any league I am in allowed trading 3 years out. I'll trade away 2020 picks, but I rarely, if ever take them back.

    Let someone else play the 'way to long game' - keep playing the 'win now' game

    Agree with the rest, if you are in a position to win, I don't see how moving Benn (should rebound) for Connor helps you next year.

    Even if i were rebuilding, I'd want more.

    Ya it's an easy no for a team that's contending next season. Re-assess next year but probably still an easy no.
    Set roster weekly in H2H (Mon to Sun) - 16 Teams - start 6F, 3D, and 1G per week - Keep 2

    Points: 2 G / 2 A / 1 PPG / 1 PPA / 1 Hat Trick / 1 SHG / 1 SHA / 1 GWG - 3 Goalie Win / 2 Goalie Loss in SO or OT / 5 goalie SO

    Forwards:
    S. Crosby, N. MacKinnon

    Defense:

    Goalie:

    IR:

    2017 league champ
    2018 league champ
