In an 8 team league, Clowe should be pretty replaceable off the WW. Win, win, win to me.
EDIT: Didn't see that your league does FOW at first. This makes it a bit more even, but I still like the deal with regards to what you gain in G, SOG, hits, and BLKS
Yeah my thoughts is points may be a wash, Ribeiro is doing well at Washington and Elias is playing well with Clarkson. However, I think down the stretch worst case points wise they will be even. Best case I would come out on top. Pretty much sell high buy low almost haha.
The main reason I'm thinking of doing this is because of the peripherals. It may seem that I would lose in FW but because Ribeiro is a straight Center, I would use the extra position to pick up someone like Turris and that would actually gain me FW as well. Clowe is actually a throw in as I don't think I really need him. When Hartnell comes back it'll be even better :P
EDIT: Also, may be risky but I have Malkin and Marleau so if it works I would have Neal-Malkin and Pavelski-Marleau combo. Would be fun.. haha
