Yeah I know, another one of those tedious Crosby threads. Since we have no hockey, I'm trying to make a splash in my league and wake everybody up from hibernation. I'm looking at acquiring Crosby but not sure what assets too start with. Malkin is not on the table however.
I was thinking of one of Tavares OR RNH as a starting point and then going from there. Not worried about giving up picks since I'm generally in the top 3 each season. Not really interested in giving up Hall either since he is my only elite (or semi Elite bandaid boy) LWer. I have a good group of prospects as well that may be of interest as well. Can dangle Goligoski or Girardi as well since I have B Smith and Orlov waiting in the wings too.
Or should I just stay the course and avoid the risk associated with Crosby?

If you wanted Crosby from me, I would insist on Malkin coming back. Nothing less. Trying to add extra players to Tavares is just adding quantity to make it appear like you are giving more. Goligoski or Girardi? Largely irrelevant when you are trying to pry Crosby off someone.
Unless my depth was horrible. For the sake of curiosity, what does the other team look like?
