    Default Help Needed - Big trade offer (REP)

    For league not in sig. 10 team dynasty, H2H, 26 player roster, 25 player minors, start 4C, 4LW, 4RW, 1F, 6D, 2G. Cats G, A, Pts, +/-, SOG, PPP, Hits, Blks, FOW, W, GAA, SV, SV%

    Now, a little rundown on my team. I am currently in 6th (took over the team this year) and have some very nice pieces including McJesus, Draisatl, Barzal, Hischier, Pasta, Meier, PLD, Seth Jones, Werenski, M Rielly, Chabot, Binnington, Lehner and Grubauer. I also own 3 lottery 1st round picks this year for the prospect draft.

    I think I should be in contention next year based on the player listed above as well as trading some of my prospects for studs. Which leads me to the offer I received, which is:

    My Kakko, Zadina, Heiskanen and Oettinger

    for

    His Aho and Kyle Connor

    I know this will upgrade my wings (as Aho still has LW eligibility) and it is probably a deal I should make. However, the loss of Heiskanen is the sticking point for me.

    Thoughts? Easy accept or something else? Thanks

    I get the hesitation but I would still go for the trade. Adding Aho and Connor is a decent boost to a quality group of players. Being in a 10 team league though makes it hard to find a seller to replace Heiskanen but I would put some trust in your ability to make a deal for a suitable replacement, even if for the short term.

    Accept the deal - you have solid depth on d , so you should be able to cover loss there. you are getting Quality forwards in their prime and you will be contending next season while Kaako and Zadina may still be 2-3 years away yet to putting up points.
    3 lottery picks you are going to get good players.

    Easy accept. Two established stars on the wing catapults your rebuild into likely contention next year. You have a great foundation to compete and it is also very young. If you can avoid critical errors you should be in the mix forever more in this league.

    Easy accept. This is a multi-cat league, and Heiskanen isn't as big a loss there.

    I'm unsure who the second best player in the deal will be, but Aho is the best.

    So I accepted the offer and feel really good about it. Thanks very much for all of your answers/opinions. I really didn't like losing Heiskanen but I am loving the additions of Connor and Aho.
