    Default Do you think i did a classic buy high move with Fiala?

    So i needed some help for playoffs and traded Jones, 2020 first round pick (around 15th overall) and byfuglien ( its a deep keeper league so still served as a throw in) for Fiala. Was it too much?

    Depends on the Jones. Seth, Caleb, Martin, etc?
    No matter who it is I can see the reasoning, but if it is Seth I think it was just a little much.

    Did you trade Seth Jones? What kind of player is normally available in your draft at 15th overall? Is it a rookie only draft?

    On the whole, I'd rather have Seth Jones than Fiala, but the trade probably isn't horribly lopsided one way or the other.

    Yeah it was Seth Jones, sorry for not making it clear. Would have never moved him if he was not injured. I have a shot to repeat championship this year and the the market is really dry.

    Yeah, I definitely understand making that deal. Still paid a lot, but sometimes you have to bite the bullet when you're looking at a back to back.

    Ah, I was thinking only in terms of keeper value. If you're gunning for it this year, then yeah, that's a good move to make for help.

    Hate this trade for you. You gave up a dman who could reasonably outpoint the forward you got back. I can appreciate wanting to go for it but this was far too steep a price imo

    Not this year he can't

    At face value - yeah you overpaid. If it gets you to the finals. Then it's worth the price of admission.

    maybe it's an overpay but vision like this brings titles whereas many others focus too much on future contention yet never win.

    Fair points but was this really the best return available for a guy of Jones' caliber? And even if it was, what difference is Fiala going to make? I guess I'm wondering if this trade was really necessary. If OP is neck and neck to finish first I suppose I don't hate the deal as much but I think it will sting in a year.

    Fiala has been producing like a superstar for months, he'll more than likely make a difference.
