    Default Trading for McDavid

    Hey guys,

    In the points only league in my signature, I might be able to grab McDavid for Tavares and Pastrnak. I know the McDavid owner won't bite unless Pastrnak or Pettersson is involved, both are really cheap options for a while. Is that 2v1 worth it or should I ask for something more than McDavid in return (eg., he has Debrincat or Keller that could help me cap-wise)?

    I'll update my signature to put my projected keepers in bold, but as you guys can see I have keeper candidates in excess and I'm already scraping next year because I don't draft until the 6th round out of 9 rounds.

    Thanks.

    in a cap league... NO! keep what you have = Pasta's deal is gold & Pettersson at peanuts for 2 MORE years??! I doubt you get a McDavid owner willing to move him in a 2-2 deal giving up either keller/ADB as the second piece.

    Can you explain your cap league and how the salaries work. Are you using AAV, cap hit, or another form of salary for your league?


    10 Team, Points Only, Cash League

    25 Man Roster (no position), top 20 point getters count at end of month
    Keep 20/25 at seasons end, Cut 5 to FA for redrafting
    Goalie points W=2pt L=-1pt SHO=2pt

    Stamkos, Tavares, JaBenn, Couture, Wheeler, Lee, Stepan, RThomas, Kucherov, Byfuglien, Burns, Zuccarello, Hoffman, JSchwartz, KPalmieri, KConnor, Necas, Bjorkstrand, Point, Konecny, MBacklund, NSchmaltz

    Yes absolutely, we use cap hit so McD is at 12,5 for the remainder of his contrat, Tavares at 11, Pastrnak at 6.67 and Pettersson at 0.925 for 2 more years

    Based on salaries, Pettersson is an easy keep for you.

    I'd ask for the additional piece you mentioned and see if he will bite. Only one way to find out.

    In a limited keeper, McDavid is usually a no-brainer and unattainable. The cap however adds a wrinkle. But let's take a look.

    So it's a two for two, however you look at it keeper wise:
    Tavares @ $11 + Pastrnak @ $6.67
    90 + 90 = 180 pts @ $17.67

    McDavid @ $12.5 + Keeper @ $5
    120 + 60 = 180 @$17.5

    Can you find another keeper who can produce 60 points for $5 mil? I'm not that great in cap leagues, but I think that shouldn't be too hard, should it? I mean, Meier could jump into that spot with Money to spare.

    I think you take McDavid here.

    Something else to consider here; Pettersson will be an amazing bargain for 2 more years at his cap hit, but then I suspect he jumps significantly ahead of Pastrnak (maybe even beyond McDavid?), while providing similar production. Pastrnak is locked in for 4 more years after this one, and is at an amazing cap hit. I think I still keep Pettersson, but it's not slam dunk to include Pastrnak over him.
