I appreciate the response and now feel like a total d*ck for saying it was such a terrible trade. This is the first pool I've been in with this kind of depth in terms of # of teams AND size of rosters so the idea of positional depth trumping a star makes sense, I just get dazzled by names like Malkin and forget everything else. Some of my recent trades and dispersal picks have also been driven by the idea of stockpiling depth up front, just loading up on guys that are in the 30-40 point range and who will contribute across all categories.
If not for contraction I would've been promoted so I suppose I should be thanking all the previous owners! I certainly could've inherited much worse
