One Year League
Got offered this trade today and I am considering doing it.
I have been getting fed up with Price's play. While I know he will eventually bounce back, I don't see the team helping him out much going forward. I figure Niemi, while he will get less starts, will be the "safer" pick. Our league is win heavy, and I figure Niemi will edge Price out in that category and therefore be the better goalie for this season.
I figure Staal will come back to earth a bit and probably get 50-55 more points this year (58-63 total), and subban will finish somewhere around 45, making them roughly a wash, given the positions.
Would you make this trade? Are my assumptions reasonable? Thoughts on modifying the trade?
