    Keeper League with the following categories:
    Pt-DGA+/-PIMSOGGWGSTASTGHit
    My current keepers:
    Hischier
    Scheifele
    Hall
    Aho
    Pastrnak
    Subban
    Giroux
    Hellebuyck

    If i make this trade I would lose Grioux/Subban and add William Karlsson/Laine. I am trying to build a really strong young base to build around.

    Laine

    for

    Subban
    Giroux

    Would you make this trade?

    Depends on the second player you get to acquire. You're listing a 2 for 1 trade.

    If I'm reading this right, it's a keep 8 league - who are you hoping to draft and retain as that 8th keeper?

    From an asset management standpoint absolutely I try to trade off Giroux (30 y/o) for Laine (20 y/o) a talented young sniper. But Giroux + Subban for Laine alone seems a little lacking.

    The oldest players on my salaried dynasty league roster are Quick, P Kane and Ryan Suter (who nobody will pay to acquire, but would be taken off waivers if dropped). Every player nearing 30 on my team I begin to explore trade options, while the player still has enough years to appeal to other GMs to acquire in a trade for 3-5 years of decent production.

    Would you be able to start all of the forwards at once?

    rangers,

    It's a very deep league. We play 4 from each position, so yes all forwards would be in play.

    My current offer:
    Claude Grioux
    William Karlsson
    Teuvo Teravainen

    But he doesn't seem to be biting, I think if I offer Claude Giroux and PK Subban he will bite.
