Gutsy deal done
I traded Simon Gagne and a 4th round pick (keeper league - points only - every summer there are four rounds of drafting)
Zac Dalpe and a 2nd
Reasoning - I have a ton of depth. Points carry over in trades so this move pushed Nathan Horton onto my pro team and ended up costing me two points. Dalpe was my preseason Calder pick and although it looks as though he'll struggle to get even 20 points this year, the talent is still there. Meanwhile, I'm afraid of another Gagne injury. I get a great prospect, a decent pick. Pretty even deal, but I was in a position to make it. Hell, I have Matt Read, Crosby, Horton (at the time), Enstrom, Marchand all on my farm team. Without the depth I don't do the deal. Without Dalpe's crappy start (which was due to injury and minimal ice time - not his own fault), my partner would not have done the deal.
