The Anatomy of a Trade

I have found it difficult to make trades in my own fantasy hockey leagues since joining the DobberHockey crew full-time over two years ago. I share my thoughts on sleepers, overrated players, and my favourite players/prospects with all of you on a daily basis. When I propose a trade in any of my leagues, my potential trading partner is usually quick to check out the site to see what I have said in the past about the player(s) I am inquiring about.

 

However, I managed to pull the trigger on a very interesting deal yesterday in my favourite league. It is a head-to-head league with many DobberHockey veterans, and I finished fourth out of 12 last year (my first year in the league after taking over a pretty decent roster).

 

 

The League: The Ultimate Fantasy Pool (who the hell named it this?)

 

The Team: The Crosby Show

 

The Scoring Categories:

 

Skaters:  G, A, PPP, SHP, GWG, +/-, SOG, PIM, FOW, HITS

 

Goalies: GP, SAVES, W, L, SO, SV %, GAA

 

My roster before yesterday's trade:

 

C Crosby
C Stamkos
C B. Richards
LW Neal
LW Carcillo
LW Kulemin
RW Franzen
RW Gaborik
