What I was saying is that the price to acquire either Quick/Smith may have just gone down a bit out of the other GM's desperation for Center help since he is losing Skinner to the concussion.
I'm comfortable moving Miller/Getzlaf for an upgrade, but now I'm wondering if it would take less than that to acquire either of his two goalies. Maybe Lindback/Getzlaf? Or if it's Miller/Getzlaf then I could perhaps try and get a goalie + D (Phaneuf?)
Which is the better target, Quick or Smith, if I go for one?
Also I'll kick the tires on Rask and Halak but not sure I'll get anywhere, but won't hurt to try.
My mistake, i'm new to this chat forum lol
umm, I am a firm believer of you NEVER give your best offer first. If you're giving up Getzlaf, i would definitely would not be including Miller in that deal for Quick or Smith alone.
Honestly, with Miller, Kipper, Lindback and Fasth, i think your bigger issue is with wingers or depth on defense.
If there are only 12 teams in the league and only 16 roster spots with 2 IR positions, there HAS to be a couple quality players available in the Free Agent list.
What i would do is look to trade two of your guys for one higher end guy and then look to replace the other player with someone from the free agent pool.
With Kesler back now and Crosby, obviously your centre ice is pretty solid with Getzlaf and Roy too.
I honestly don't mind your goaltenders at all. Especially if Fasth keeps playing this well. I think you may be rushing into a deal trying to give up both Getzlaf and Miller just to secure Quick. If you can get Marchand back in return who can also be a wing position, then i think you're on to something.
What about something like this:
Getzlaf, Miller, Steen and Visnovsky or Faulk
Quick or Smith, Marchand and Phaneuf
He would get two Centre's to help him out there and a goalie to replace the one he lost and a D to sort of help replace losing Phaneuf. You get the goalie you want, plus marchand to help you out on wing and PIM's, plus Phaneuf to help with your D depth.
The D is totally up to you, i just added it cuz you mentioned an interest in Phaneuf
