    Lightbulb Was just offered Crosby

    Keep 6

    Not contending this year . Trying to improve keepers for next year .

    Currently I’m considering 6 of: Mackinnon , Kane, Scheifele, Carlson, Binnington, Bishop, Nylander.

    Just received this offer :
    His Crosby, Pavelski, Samsonov for my Binnington, Nylander, Scheifele.

    Beginning of season I offered Scheifele for Crosby. Which he declined.

    I’d love to add Crosby but isn’t that a steep price ?
    His goalies Samsonov, Quick, Dubnyk + Tarasenko, Matthews , Laine , EP40 Pettersson, Burns, Ristolainen, .

    What if I countered Binnington, Scheifele, Nylander for Crosby, Tarasenko, Samsonov . He’s lost Tarasenko for the year anyway . He wants to contend .
    I would prefer to keep Nylander or do I have him over rated ?

    Appreciate any and all input .
    Thanks to kings89 for looking after my team in my absence .

    Crosby was injured tonight. Blocked a shot and headed straight to the room, according to my info. More news Monday. Might want to slow down and check that out first.

    I'd want to move Nylander and not keep him in your format.

    He gets some FOW, but shoots just an okay amount, and is paper soft. Tarasenko doesn't get FOW, but shoots a lot more, and is far grittier, even though he's not big in hits/blocks.

    I think your counter offer is fine.
    10 team Head-to-head true dynasty. Roster 33, draft 2, cut down before season. Start 1 G, 1 backup G, 6 D, 12 F arranged in 4 lines of 3. Only categories that matter are Goals, Assists, Save% with a shutout bonus. Having NHL teammates helps.

    G: Bobrovsky
    Backup G: F Andersen
    D: Ekblad, Yandle, M Reilly, Carlson, Klingberg, Letang
    F1: Couturier, Giroux, Voracek
    F2: Schiefele, Wheeler, Guentzel
    F3: Stamkos, Point, MacKinnon
    F4: Mikheyev, Bertuzzi, Seguin

    Bench:
    Injured: Tavares
    G: Holtby
    D: Gardiner, Gustafsson, Makar,
    F: Bailey, Benn, Cirelli, Johnsson, Labanc, JT Miller, Necas, Pavelski
    Reserve: Datsyuk

    I'd rather keep Binnington and move Bishop.

    I wouldn't lose sleep over moving Nylander.

    Do you consider Tank or Samsonov keepers? If not, why target them?

    I would consider Tarasenko as a keeper . As far as Nylander is concerned, unfortunately I was watching the game last night while our trade discussion was going back and forth. Nylander looked like a real force . I came to my senses this morning and Nylander is back in our discussion as available .

    I'd want Tank in the deal. For whatever schmuck you need to put in, Wee Willy is fine, hes too soft for your format.

    That’s what I’m working on . Provides me with 2 keepers coming back for the 2 I’m trading . Plus Tarasenko is an asset I can keep or trade to better my keepers .

    I agree you should be trying to get tank in there. Tank doesn't help the OGM and you are pretty much saving his season by giving him Binnington. He's going nowhere with the goalies he has...

    Trade is left at his Crosby, Samsonov for Scheifele, Binnington.

    Crosby is my favourite player and I’d love to have him , it’s just giving up 2 keepers for 1 . Do I still accept ?
    Not contending this year . Assumed the team after the draft . Have been working on getting 6 good keepers .

    I'd pass for now. I love the idea of a trade built around Schief for Crosby but binnington is a deal breaker. 4 our of 11 cats are for goalies and binnington is a really good goalie on a really good team.

    Plus Crosby is injured and although he's been relatively healthy for a while his injury status while he ages is always going to be in question.

    I just don't think you win the trade. So that said if Crosby is your absolute favorite player and owning him will make fantasy way more enjoyable for you then I've seen worse trades and I wouldn't fault you for it. I paid an arm and leg for McDavid last season and plan to ride him into his retirement. It's just more fun owning the best player on your favorite team.

    If we can get this closer to a one for one then I'm all for it but I like binnington alot more than your other goalies for the next couple years.

    I'd also pass on the trade. Two keepers for one, and you are giving up all the youth. I have the feeling he knows you really want Crosby and is trying to press you into a deal that you really don't want to make. If that deal is there now, it will likely still be there in a month or two.

    I have a feeling your right . I moved on and concluded another deal with another owner. My Bishop, Carlson, RNH for his Vasilevskiy, Reilly, Kessel.
