In the FHS Beta League, there was recently a trade. The deal was Henrik Lundqvist for Brian Elliott and Milan Lucic. For those of you who don't know, the league is a non-keeper, head to head league. Stats include: G, A, +/-, PIM, PPP, SOG, HIT, BLK, WINS, GAA, SAVES, and SV%. Your overall record is a running total of your weekly results. So if you went 10-2-0, 4-7-1, and 3-8-1 the first three weeks, your overall record would be 17-17-2 (worth 36 points). It's a public league, so you can check it out here: FHS Beta League
The team getting Lundqvist is tied for 1st, the team getting Elliott and Lucic is in 10th (just 13 points behind the playoffs, though, so by no means dead in the water).
Two people contacted me regarding the deal. One claimed he'd veto it for selfish reasons. He thought it was a fair deal but said he doesn't want a team ahead of him getting better. The other said the deal was a joke. His words: "its a bad deal man, trust me. your not gonna find many people with the hockey intelligence that i have and anyone who would deal lundqvist for that is a joke. And well he is, im not dissing you man, were tied for 1st and your team is doing very well, but that trade is bad. your the clear winner and a trade from T1st to 11th like that just throws the integrity of the league out the window."
So my question to you is, how many people would veto the deal?
