Lets analyze this deal with just age for a minute
You traded 4 players total, all young pieces all with good or decent potential
4 aging players who have reached their peak or close to it
and 2 young players with good potential
Now lets look at the Rangers deal:
Here you get a good defensemen in Girardi, a depth defensemen in Bickel, and a young player with crazy potential in Kreider..
Kreider is terrible in this game and gets waved every other GM mode I play. Girardi is under-represented in this game, and Bickel is slow as molasses.
(both go up to like 85 overall by season two, and Fowler is actually slower)
was a bit of a steal, but worse overall than
Doan, Vrbata, Torres, Gormley, 1st
We can't force people to make trades that they never agreed to. That isn't fair for Stokey. And besides, I gave up half of my team on these deals. I'm going to suck for a season or two here.
