    Default Trading for Benn and Ghost, am I crazy to walk away?

    Need to boost my D and wouldn't mind strengthening my LW since Laine is rotting on my bench behind Tank and Rantanen.

    GM is open to moving Benn and Ghost and wants two FWDs as the return. He said Aho/Keller and someone higher profile.

    I think Keller and Laine isn't far off in this deal...I think Tank and Aho is a massive overpay given that Benn is slumping and Aho has been great this season.

    Am I crazy to walk away if he asks for more than Keller and Laine?

    Bump. He is contemplating....but prefers Aho to Keller....too much? I love benn but he has been pretty terrible statistically since his brief hot start...has anyone watched many stars games this season, is he looking like he has lost a step?

    I don't mind the deal for you, it looks pretty good to me for the next 3 years, nice you were able to hold Aho. And you have to give to get. It's a win now move.

    Last year of our keeper, before a full redraft (too many inactive GM's) so all in for this year
