Which side would you take?
I know it looks lopsided at first, at least in my eyes it does, but the reason I'm going after the ducks duo is the Anaheim schedule. The Ducks play Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Sunday which are off nights for most teams. This opens up spots for other players on those busy nights. For example just last Saturday I was forced to bench Horton, Saad, and someone else. They had 1G, 5A, +4, 7PIM, 2PPP, 13 SOG and I got none of that because my big name players filled up all my spots.
So in weighing this deal, factor in the extra points I could be getting by being able to play all my players each night.
1 Year - 12 Team - Yahoo - H2H
G, A, +/-, PIM, PPP, SOG W, GAA, Sv%. Sho
LW, LW, C, C, RW, RW, D, D, D, Util, Util, G, G
C - J.Thornton, A. Steen, T. Brouwer
LW - I. Kovalcuck, A. Ovechkin, M. Moulson, B. Saad
RW - J. Iginla, M. St.Louis, N. Horton
D - J. Faulk, B. Burns
G - C. Price, T. Rask
IR - A. McDonald, T. Enstrom
Price = Howard - Kinda even IMO, maybe Price is slightly better since the Habs are doing pretty good atm.
Ovechkin(LW/RW) < Perry(RW) - Ovechkin represent the whole Caps, in a deep recession.
St.Louis(RW) < Getzlaf(C) - Slightly advantage for Getzlaf since he's been smoking hot lately.
Although isn't Brouwer RW and not C? Which means you, pre-trade, only have 2 C, right? Thornton and Steen? So for your lineup Getzlaf would be pretty valuable.
I would go for the Anaheim side. You might loose some flexibility due to Ovechkin but I think its worth it.
