    Default Trade Murray for Gibson?

    Hi all,

    Curious folks' thoughts about trading Gibson for Murray in a one year league (Yahoo H2H, counting W's and S%). I have a feeling it'll end up being somewhat of a wash with Murray getting 5 or so more W's and Gibson with a marginally better save percentage, and I'm a diehard Penguins fan, so leaning towards taking up the offer, but I can't help but be mildly concerned about Murray's play last year.

    Thanks!

    Well I would want Gibson over Murray myself but if you really want him because he's your boy, then I think you could justify it. But I'd also keep in mind that you have 3 g for 2 g slots, and the Ducks play on a ton of off nights - more than any other team by far - so going from Gibson to Murray could cost your team 5-10 starts over the year. You may not be gaining the Ws you hope to gain because one of your 3 goalies will end up on the bench more nights than before.

    I think it's a wash. Both are injury prone and both are good young starters. I'd probably just keep what you have unless they give you a reason to make the deal. In other words, it's an offer you simply cant refuse.

    Gibson is the better fit due to the off nights.
    Murray is the better fit because you are a Penguins fan.

    Pick which one matters more.
    10 team Head-to-head true dynasty. Roster 33, draft 2, cut down before season. Start 1 G, 1 backup G, 6 D, 12 F arranged in 4 lines of 3. Only categories that matter are Goals, Assists, Save% with a shutout bonus. Having NHL teammates helps.

    G: Bobrovsky
    Backup G: F Andersen
    D: Ekblad, Yandle, Carlson, DeAngelo, Letang, Makar
    F1: Couturier, Giroux, Voracek
    F2: Schiefele, Wheeler, MacKinnon
    F3: Stamkos, Point, JT Miller
    F4: Bertuzzi, Tavares, Seguin

    Bench:

    If you own Murray, I want Jarry as the handcuff. dude can't stay healthy... neither can Gibson, but he plays more per year & Miller is always WW in one year leagues, if you're OCD on your team - you can always grab him as your back up and not get screwed. I'd prefer Gibby by a hair

    Is it weekly or daily starts? Anahiem plays the most 'off nights' of any team. If this is a daily start you HAVE TO GO Gibson. If it is a weekly start it is a coin toss. If it were a weekly start league, and I was you, I would go with my heart and take Murray.
