    Default Borgstrom vs Bouchard

    So, I am not sure about this one, my gut tells me not to do it.

    I have Borg and I have an offer of Bouchard for him.

    Salary cap league so their AAVs are comparable. G,A,PPP,PIM,+/- are the cats.

    I am pretty tempted by Bouchard's situation, being the PP QB on McDavid's PP.

    Borg has a high ceiling too, though. What are the chances of Borg becoming a 70+ point forward vs. Bouchard a 50+ point dman?

    I do like Bouchard's situation better right now but I know from experience that talented players find a way to work their way up the line up so it wouldn't be surprising to see Borg in a top 6 role in FLA within a couple of years.

    So, who do you like better long-term?
    I can't promise I'll try but I'll try to try.

    I'd like to see your whole roster & prospects. This could just come down to positional need (gut says Bouchard initially)

    I voted for Borgstrom because I prefer him to Bouchard in a vacuum; however, seeing your roster I think I would make this deal. You are in need of some more upside plays at D, and Bouchard is just that. Any chance you could get a little something extra, another pick / prospect?

    I could push for something extra but it's not really all that important to me. Main focus is the two key pieces.

    thx for posting the roster - I'm taking Bouchard here. Looking at the two rosters as well, top pair PP1 - is waiting for someone to gab it by the horns; whereas there's a top-6 logjam in Fla which is going to push Borgstrom down from elite opportunity for a couple years

    Well, it doesn't matter now. Bouchard owner changed his mind, wants Zadina now. I said no.
