    Post Borderline insulting offer?

    Hey all, league in sig.

    Got an offer that made me laugh out loud

    My: Ty Smith, Quinn Hughes, Jakob Pelletier
    for His: Noah Juulsen, Victor Soderstrom, Warren Foegele

    He said he'd be open for negotiations, i told him that there's no way id even consider it unless i was getting young NHL-ers and/or high picks. In terms of his team, he's only got 2-3 guys i am realistically interested in (Rantanen, Boeser, maaaaybe Horvat) and no picks. On one hand, i do see myself dealing Hughes at some point to do just that (acquire young, proven NHL-ers), on the other hand young stud defensemen are hard to come by and i can't in good conscience give up 2 at once, as i see both Hughes and Smith as the heir apparent on their respective blue-lines.

    Did some rejigging to the original 'offer' and came up with this new proposal:

    My: Quinn Hughes, Jakob Pelletier, 2020 1st (could be 2021 if team in question makes playoffs which is likely, then its 10-16 range)
    for
    His: Mikko Rantanen

    Thoughts?

    Agree with L4 and ED. IMO, your team is so weak at all three positions that Rantanen isn't going to make much difference. I'd lay low and stick with the rebuild - try to move Kadri for a passel of prospects and take over a contending team in a second league when one becomes available.

    Don't make your decisions based on the 1st not being in your possession. What's done is done. Do what is best for your franchise, not for someone else.

    That's my thoughts as well. His offer wasn't great and neither is yours. You clearly overvalue QHughes so you might as well tell him this up front so you can both move on.

    I think it's that terrible offers give the sense that the other person thinks you're an idiot.

    I'm in 6 pools. There's 2 GM's in total that lowball and do this frequently. I'm not insulted by low-ball offers, but I'm more insulted after all these years they haven't figured out I reject 100% of them
