Somewhat off topic, need advice on a trade

First off let me say, can we PLEASE hurry up and sign, Van Ryn, J-Bo and Olli. We almost lost Roberto, and still may, lets get some of our young stars under contract!!!

That said, i'm involved in a fantasy Pool. Looking to make a pretty serious trade. If anybody could offer any advice that would be great. Here is my team. we protect a total of 15 guys.
Marian Hossa, David Legwand, Nathan Horton, Vaclav Prospal, Robert Lang, Milan Hejduk, Petr Sykora (Ducks), Olli Jokinen - Forwards
Brent Sopel, J-bo, Brad Stuart, Pavel Kubina, Dion Phaneuf, Cam barker - Defense
Luongo - Goalie.

As you can see i have a very young team as i'm on a 3-5 year plan.

So that said here is what i was offered.

Robert Lang
Cam barker
Milan Hejduk
For
Nikolai Zherdev
Joni Pitkanen
Daymond Langkow.

OR

Robert Lang
Milan Hejduk
For
Tuomo Ruutu
Patrick Elias

Any advice?

GO CATS!

Definately not the second one but the first one is workable.

I would do one of two things

1. Counter offer of:

Robert Lang
Cam barker
Milan Hejduk
For
Nikolai Zherdev
Joni Pitkanen
Daymond Langkow.
A 3rd or 4th line role playing forward

IMO Zherdev will be better than Lang in a few years if not already
Pitkanen is better and probably will always be better than Barker
Hejduk is WAY better than Langkow. You are giving up a 1st line, high scoring player for a 2nd line mediocre scoring forward. I would ask for someone like a Darcy Tucker type of player to be added to the deal to give you a bit of toughness and experience/leadership.

2. Counter
Robert Lang
Cam barker
Milan Hejduk
For
Nikolai Zherdev
Joni Pitkanen
1st or 2nd line scorer/role player or 1/2 Dman

I would ask for someone like JP Dumont or Mike Comrie or Alyn McCauley to give you some pretty insane depth in the forward position, or I would ask for a good top tier dman with some experience to help out your young guys like Brian McCabe, Eric Brewer, Chris Pronger.

The way i'm trying to look at it is.
I think Langkow will be a HUGE sleeper this season and for a couple too come. Playing with Iggy on the first line. He is always consistently a 50-60 point player on mediocre Phoneix. Zherdev should be an offensive force VERY soon, and who knows i'm sure he will be on a line with Nash. And then Pitkanen, by far one of the best up and coming D-men, next to J-bo of course

Then i have Lang who is 35 and slowing down. Doesn't fit my team at all. Barker who hasn't even proved his worth yet in the NHL, and he could be another year away, and well hejduk is hejduk. One of the best.

I hate making these choices.

CC -(and 7 - yummy and now I'm thirsty)
I'd do the first trade but it seems a little lopsided. I'd ask your trading partner in crime to fork over someone else but I am evil that way. Not sure who else you can ask for though. Sorry - now I need to go make me a drink. - hg
