I'm wondering if I should be trading Backes now while his multi-cat value is high and try to land a younger asset. Looking around my league I'm thinking of targetting either Seguin or Landeskog. Is this a good plan? Should I be considering moving Backes based on his age for an asset that will be just starting their peak when my team gets going (not finishing their peak like Backes)? I'd appreciate your thoughts. Thanks!
Seguin would be the optimal prize here, but I don't think a Backes for Seguin deal will work. Lando's stats are as equally as good as Backes according to your CATS and he's 9 years younger. I would try a Lando + a pick or tier II player for Backes and see where that takes you. Don't think you can go wrong with either player and Backes has lots in the tank going fwd, no need to rush a deal. But I favour Landeskog that much more. He gets lots of love as a future multi-cat stud on these boards.
