yeah as a Habs fan I have a large soft spot for Koivu.
I see little difference between the two, regardless of age/contract. If Wellwood is a 2C on a team that team is horrible...they are interchangable IMO. There will probably be a rating difference of about 2/3 points, nothing I can't make up for with my slick thumbs
Look at the top LW's in this league. There are many. Look at true #1 centers. Much less.
I was actually offered at 1st in this deal and said that would be too much.
My other top offer included a top pairing 20 year old, a #2 center, and a 2nd rounder for Vinny. I'll drop the pick if this is too "unfair". Based on the proposals I RECEIVED, #1 centers are more valuable.
