    Default Giroux for Benn

    I was just offered a straight up my Giroux for his Benn. My team sig below, would this be a good move?

    I was thinking of trying his Kucherov and a lesser pick for my Giroux and an upgraded pick for him to see if I can persuade him before doing anything more with this deal. It's a keep 6

    yes because of hits and goals counting more, Benn should score more goals with G being a textbook playmaker. He won't touch Giroux in PPP I feel but overall better value for the scoring format.

    Think I'd be better off if I can pull off a Kucherov trade for him, I could then move somebody to fill any gaps and come out of it with the better player, and if all else fails I just pull the trigger on Benn?

    Benn is better than Kuch in this format if you ask me.

    Last season based on averages Giroux was 4.46 Benn was 4.38 and Kuch was 4.78 based on my league settings both Benn and Giroux ended around 360-362 and kuch has 382 I do know LW is more valuable as less common just wondering on next 3 years who is best. Still think I'm better with Benn over Kuch? I know Benn has a more solid Floor then Giroux which is nice

    I know format makes all the difference but my Benn looked like a peewee player next to my opponent's Giroux this week in straight points. Giroux whooped me for 9pts and Benn only managed 2.

    Sure makes me wish I had Giroux instead lol

    I have Giroux and just acquired benn. It would take a bit more to get giroux off me (although keep in mind we don't count hits) but I would trade either if I could get kucherov, LW scarcity be damned
