Depends on your league, but assuming its a keeper I wouldn't. I don't like the idea of taking that kind of risk for a center when I'd be sending two young, talented wingers back.

That said its not an awful trade, and it's certainly got the chance to be a win for you in the long run but I get the feeling replacing those 2 wingers wouldn't be easy.

Probably not, but it depends on the league.

Personally not a fan of moving out Crosby. While the trade you made was better than the original, I still don't like the trade for you.

Crosby is the best player in hockey and fantasy when healthy, and I feel you didn't ship him out for quality, but instead quantity.

we'll i dont understand why people dont like the deal....even if you deal crosby...Skinner Eriksson and Perron can all be 70 pts players plus you get a solid Dman in Keith...that's huge for Crosby and an old tanguay!

Misread it the first time, thought you were getting Crosby. The final trade is a lot better for you - that's 4 solid players with a lot of years left.

The original deal didn't include Perron or Keith. With those included it looks much more fair.

Again, we know nothing about the league or his team, so it's hard to say if it's a good deal or not.

Without knowing the details of your pool it is hard to say. But that seems like a good return for Crosby.

I dealt Crosby in my keeper pool when he got injured for the second time, I received Getzlaf and E. Staal...even with those 2, I kinda regret it.

I drafted Crosby and stuck with him all of last year. When he came back in March it paid off big time. He was a huge reason why I won my league.

Sometimes, getting a boost towards the end of the season and going into the playoffs is just as important as having a guy for a full year.
