His Martin St Louis, Damian Brunner, Daniel Briere and his 11th pick
St Louis is the key part of the deal. I feel he could propel me up in the standings, even tho I think he's "over-achieving" right now. But I also think Taylor Hall won't be that far behind him at the end of the year.
Bobby Ryan v.s. Brunner seems pretty even, Ryan is off to a slow start as always.
Richards, I don't mind dealing since I already have a King in Jeff Carter.
Please help... I just can't pull the trigger. Should I?
First off...WELCOME TO THE BOARDS.
I Do NOT like this deal for you at all. In a keeper or 1 year league.
Hall is = to St. Louis IMO this year and >> over the rest of both their careers. Spark Plug Marty only has 2 to 3 quality years left in him. I believe Hall will dazzle for the next 15 years. Injuries or not.
How anyone can equate the unknown/undrafted Brunner to former #2 over all pick Ryan (and I'm not really a Ryan fan) at this stage of their careers is obserd to me. Maybe I'm missing something. This is a total SELL high on Brunner...or buy high on your account.
And BAB Briere for Richards? I understand trying to diversify your players (having Carter) and stacking up on the often enimic Kings isn't wise, but Briere ain't no spring chicken and seems to be layed up as much if not more than Hall...and Hall's injuries are freak. Briere has been ridden hard!
Just my opinion, and feel free to disregard...but the scales are tipped drastically in favor of the GM getting your Hall, Ryan and Richards.
I'd make this deal with out thinking twice...if I was the other GM!
Best of luck.
