    Default Kucherov trade

    14 team,salary cap, weekly head to head points only keeper League Scoring: G,A, goalie wins and SO's )

    Start 6F, 3D 1G each week

    F: Kuch, Crosby, Larkin, Fiala, Barkov, Monahan, Aho
    D: Karlsson, Klingberg, Hronek, Boqvist
    G: Hellebucyk, Jarry

    Thinking of offering Kuch for 1st overall in our cap league after hearing the injury news. Am I crazy? Lafreniere will go first overall, I'm also annually against the cap with a strong but expensive squad, always cutting corners here or there to keep under. Fiala expires after this season for example, which is a future factor which would be helped swapping Kuch for a stud prospect on a 3 year rookie deal.
    Thoughts??

    I’m not in a cap league so not the best to answer this but I’d much rather own kuch and find cap space somewhere else.

    I agree with keeping Kucherov and finding cap room elsewhere.
    10 team H2H dynasty. 33 player roster, 2 round draft. Start 1 G, 1 backup G, 6 D, 12 F arranged in 4 lines of 3. Only Goals, Assists, Save% matter. Having NHL teammates helps.

    G: Shesterkin
    Backup G: Oettinger
    D: Carlson, Makar, Letang, Eklblad, Fox, Trouba

    F1: Necas, Teravainen, Robertson
    F2: Schiefele, Wheeler, MacKinnon
    F3: Stamkos, Point, Guentzel
    F4: JT Miller, Boeser, Bertuzzi

    Bench: 2 empty spots for draftees
    G: (none)
    D: Heiskanen, Klingberg, M Reilly
    F: Voracek, Benn, Seguin, Couturier, Giroux, Dahlen, Perfetti, Newhook
    Reserve: Datsyuk

    You have to keep Kucherov. Only situation where it's acceptable to trade him is if you are competing for the title this year and can trade him to someone who's ready to give up an elite player for him.

    I just traded him for Barkov and Lindholm, but I'm definitely going for the win this year.
    H2H - 16 teams - Auction (225 $ cap), cap up to 300$ after auction on any drafted player.
    Keep 3, +7$ each year. Keep 5 farm (cost 1$ to dress).[/I]

    Points (1), Defense goals (2), Powerplay Points (0.5), GWG (0.5), ShG (0.5)

    10 F 4 D 1 G 5 bench 10 farm

    F: Kucherov (41$), Pettersson (15$), Marner (29$), Wheller (55$), Landeskog (18$), Horvat (15$), Meier (16$), Fiala (1$), Beauvillier (1$), Getzlaf (1$)
    D: Barrie (17$), Fox (1$), Girard (1$), Trouba (2$)
    G: Markstrom (6$)

    Bench: Athanasiou, Granlund, Gostisbehere, Matheson, Garland

    Farm: Boldy, Gurianov, Puljujarvi, Dach, Glass, Kaprizov, Patrick, Sanheim, Tomasino, Sorokin

    I hear these arguments and can't disagree, could be a reach for only potential.

    I'm built to win now, would Svechnikov be a slight reach too? I also buy myself 8.5 million cap space in a year when, as of now, I'm only 3.3 mil under our cap before our draft,. There I'd have to take 3 players on rookie contracts to satisfy roster floor, stay under the cap, that limits my choices.

    Whoa I was considering the very same move in a very similar pts only league. I think it's a fair move if you aim for the title, my hesitation comes from the uncertainty surrounding Lafrenière's point output. Imagine if Lafrenière goes 1pt/match straight up a la Elias Pettersson? I think I would prefer having Lafreniere in that case, especially with Kucherov on the sideline. For three years too under a million per year too!
    On the other hand Kucherov in pts only leagues is top 3 league wide. You're likely to regret it if Lafreniere mimics Jack Hughes at .3pt/game...
    I don't know how much weight I'd put to it, but Corey Pronman from the Athletic has recently ranked the top 155 players under 23. Matthews, Dahlin, and Pettersson are 1-2-3. Lafrenière is 4th. Jack Hughes is 8th.
    At this point I think either choice can work if you do it knowing what you're trading away. Personally I think I've talked myself away from the edge hahaha
    10 team, 19 players H2H pts only keeper with cap (95M). Keep 8.
    F (9):
    Kucherov Kaprizov, Pastrnak, Pettersson, Debrincat
    , Kyrou, Verhaeghe, Forsberg
    D (4) : Josi,
    Rielly, Theodore, DeAngelo
    G (2) : Shesterkin, Jarry,
    Bench (4): Swayman,
    Rust, Burakovsky, Bunting
    Farm: Rossi, L. Raymond

    Almost identical league (keep 8), I just offered Kuch/Hedman/DeAngelo for Mackinnon, and basically got laughed at (rude). I've floated Kuch for 1st overall, Kuch for 2nd overall, crickets.

    I would be wary taking Kuch in a trade at this point. Is he going to come back next year as the same player? Will this be an ongoing issue like Tarasenko etc. If I am in rebuild mode and no hopes of winning this year or even next, I would trade for him, but not a 1st overall. Just my 2 cents

    Oh so you wouldn't give the 1st overall for Kucherov? Interesting since others thought giving away Kuch was an overpayment
