Is the 2nd overall team in need of some depth, otherwise I don't know if I would be pulling the trigger if I was Team A... Klatt and Sullivan are both great depth players but not really 1st line material, probably not 2nd line material for a 2nd place team in a 20 team league... Kozlov fills the void of one of them being more offensive (although a bit of a defensive liability) and you're giving up Chistov. Just because he got demoted I wouldn't write him off, just a sophomore slump as I see it, alot of players incur it, it's whether they can break out of it in their third season and I believe Anaheim will give him every chance (just look at the patience they've had with Vishnevski). 5th round pick usually amounts to nothing anyways so what it really comes down to is, will the extra depth player make it worth giving up a still promising 20 year old prospect, in my opinion no... but it's hard to say without seeing Team A's roster.
Well, i'm Team A. Kozlov is a primary left winger while Sullivan is a primary right winger. Kozlov is not working on my team at all and I could use extra winger more than a left winger. I admit Kozlov for Sullivan is pretty much a wash, but i'm in a win mode now, so I have to give something of value to Team B just make the deal worthwhile on his end.
In case you were wondering, here's my lines when healthy
Extra Forwards are always different: Kozlov, Bulis, Fleury, Oates
