  • Another draft pick bites the dust. I sure hope to hell I am right and these draft picks aren't that major in next years draft. :)

    Just made a trade with Alfie11(Ottaw Silver Seven)

    Here is the trade:

    Sin Bins trade: Henrik Zetterberg, Chris Kreider, Connor Hellebuyuk and my #1 Draft Pick to the
    Ottawa Silver Seven for Evander Kane, Travis Zajac, Cam Talbot and his #4 Draft Pick.

        • Also Josh is there anyway to light a fire under the final 2 team owners Kevin & Owen to vote on whether to keep the moves at 2 or move it up to 3? Right now as it stands the Yes vote only needs 1 more vote to get this passed up to 3 moves per week. Just wondering. At this rate if they never get on the site the vote will never end.

              I still don't think draft picks are that important. I may be totally wrong because you all have been in this league for several years and me just several days. When I joined though I looked over the Waiver Wire and there were many very good players sitting there for the taking. That is one reason I wish there were more than just 2 moves per week. Other than the Goalie position where there isn't much on the WW left there is still great players out there that just sit there. Those players were either not drafted at all in the 12 rounds or dropped so if you use the Waiver Wire correctly you can build a strong team without great draft picks in my opinion.

              • Draft picks are absolutely important.

                Its not just that tho... the first is your most valuable and you traded it in a deal where you were already getting inferior players, both in the short term and long term (E. Kane gets injured from the wind, Zajac is waiver fodder and long term, Hellebuyck > Talbot)

                all the best teams in this league built through the draft

                • Zajac won't be on my team for very long. Cam Talbot has a much better chance of getting Wins than Hellebuyuk this season as Helly wasn't going to be a long term project anyway. I have already picked up a strong possible keeper off the Waiver Wire and hope to pick up another as well. I have unloaded several pieces of old dead weight off my team that I have seen people drop like Markov. If Evander Kane can stay healthy he has potential to be productive as well and he is young as well. He bounced back pretty damn quick from several broken ribs. Plus my LW position went from being old and not so great to pretty damn solid in just a few days with Marchand, Ehlers, Landeskog, and E. Kane. We shall see what happens.

                  • why would you trade for someone who won't be on your team for very long then? It's just wasting assets; same thing with Plekanec where you immediately dropped him.

                    • Teams do it all the time. Josh also just did it with Markov. With Plekanec I did it because I was overloaded with Centers and Nikolaj Ehlers was on the Waiver Wire and I needed to replace Daniel Sedin in that deal. Josh had no LW player even close to the quality of Ehlers so he gave me Plekanec and I dropped him for Ehlers. Once again I will have an overload of Centers and if I can pick up another position of need that is an upgrade I will do so. If there isn't anyone when the time comes to make the move than Zajac will stay.

                      • Josh did it because he got a draft pick 5 rounds ahead of the one he traded away lmao

                        • What does that have to do with dropping old dead weight? Not a damn thing.
