Would you move Quick to upgrade elsewhere and hang on to Smith?
Goalies were a position of strength for me last year (Lundqvist, Quick, and both Blues goalies) and a major reason why I won our league (the number of shutouts were ridiculous). I drafted Mike Smith this year, and can't help but entertain the idea of selling Quick for another elite player and keeping Smith. I do think that Quick will be good for a long time playing under Sutter, but one can make the same argument for Smith playing in Tippett's system.
I've read arguments in another thread on Smith warning dobberites about his pending free agency and the possible impacts on him should he sign somewhere other than Phoenix. That, coupled with my gut and logic, tell me that I should stick with Quick.
Any thoughts? I'm in an 8 team keeper (keep 12, max 2 goalies) and kept Lundqvist and Quick last year. If you think that selling Quick is smart, what kind of value do you think he'd return?
