    Default Was I wrong to turn this down? - Matthews trade

    12 Team Dynasty - H2H Cats - G, A, SOG, STP, ESP, SOG, PIM, HIT, BLK, FOW
    4C, 4LW, 4RW, 6D, 3Sk, 2G, 12 Bench, 20 Prospects

    Got the offer of my Matthews for entry draft picks #2 & 8 overall, Nolan Foote, and Brayden Tracey.

    I turned it down, but I'm debating whether I should still entertain the general idea given how good of a draft year this year is supposed to be. Not sure if my leaf bias is clouding my judgement. I'm planning on competing next year, but people tend to over value top prospects and I could easily see myself flipping picks #2 and 8. For example last year 8th overall and some minor pieces got traded last year for Malkin, but no guarantee I could get a similar offer.

    My team:

    C: Matthews, Bergeron, Kopitar, Giroux, Couture, Backstrom, Backlund
    LW: Ovechkin, Benn, Schwartz, Parise, Sanford, Jarnkrok
    RW: Hoffman, Granlund, Niederreiter, Radulov, Brown, Pavelski, Simmonds
    D: Burns, Josi, Rielly, Hamilton, Giordano, Pulock, Hronek, Klefbom, Ekholm, Gustafsson
    G: Vasilevskiy, Markstrom, Fleury, Rinne
    Notable Prospects: J. Robertson, Groulx, Harley, Lundkvist, Addison, Clague, Niku, Farrance

    Absolutely not, I'd want way more certainty when trading what I would consider one of the, if not the best shooter in the NHL. If it was #1 and the rest, then I'd consider it given Lafreniere seems like much more of a sure thing.

    Good turn down.
    It's not a terrible offer, but is lacking to get Matthews.

    That's a deal I turn down 11 times out of 10.

    You get a bunch of maybes for a top tier player.

    F1: Couturier, Giroux, Voracek

    Would you trade a loonie away for 4 dimes? Neither would I. I would definitely reject this offer especially if you are trying to compete for a championship next season.

    I think you made the right choice.

    Matthews is arguably a top 10 player in the league today and still is just scratching the surface. The four pieces he offered are nice but there's no guarantee with any of them.

    If it was me as the Matthews owner, I'd want something young and NHL studly as a starting point. As I say, the pieces offered are nice but to me, in any offer for Matthews, they would be secondary pieces not primary ones.
    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

    G- Vasilevskiy, Bobrovsky

    Easy no imo. To deal Matthews you'd need a young studly rw ( to me that's where you could use the most help) + the rest to even consider it

    If you could get Tarasenko (or some equivalent) plus what was offered, I would consider it.
