Would anyone here do a Callahan for Filatov swap one-for-one?
I am in a GM game and I was offered this trade and am torn. I really like Callahan but Filatov has a ton of skill. Thoughts?
Mods, sorry for the new thread. You can close it after a little while, I just want a few opinions.
yep another player who decides to go back to europe because he doesnt want to go to the minors, i dont care how much talent Filatov has. if he doesnt wanna go to the AHL well ur not a team player dont want any of them to be a ranger..
id keep callahan.
lets deal one of the few players who works hard on the ice at both ends and doesnt float......
Eh, it's an ok deal theoretically, but Filatov is too much of an unknown quantity to give up on a guy who wears a letter, makes chicken scratch and still brings you 45 points with great defensive play and hustle.
Filatov is undoubtedly skilled, but not usually appearing to be half as driven as we love Callahan for (but how many guys really are?).
Callahan, even during his poor games, at least brings in the physical element that most don't usually show.
I would've done say Zherdev for Filatov, but not Callahan.
Two different parts of the game Fil and Cal bring, and the Philly games still say we can't diminish our physical game any further than it already is.
If even we forget the moral side, we NEED Cally.
Filatov for someone else maybe?
