    this is the trade i was proposed in a life time pool. Note that i'm in a bit of reconstruction and to not expect to win for the next 2 to 3 years, so i'm looking and drafting prospects, and this week this trade was offered to me:

    Ilya Kovalchuk + Brian Rafalski
    for
    Colin wilson + Magnus Paajarvi-Svensson + James Van riemsdyk


    i would be getting 3 good prospects but are there good enough to replace Kovalchuk....?

    I'd have a hard time passing up those three young guys in one trade proposal, even if it is for Kovalchuk. 2 or 3 years from now, when Rafalski is done, those three will more than make up for the loss of Kovie.

    In 2-3 years Rafalski may very well be done. Those are three very good young players that should definitely make up for the loss of Kovalchuk.

    Neither of those 3 will replace Rafalski, and Kovalchuk will be racking up points in NJ for years to come.

    Tough call, if you have enough at D to move Rafalski then it could pay off in the long run.

    Tough call but I think that I'd do it. You lose in the short-term but I think the long-term gamble is well worth it.

    I would want just a tad more in a trade if that was me. 2nd round pick thrown in? Mid level prospect that has shown some talent in limited time in the bigs. Something like that.

    I also proposed to Patrick Elias for is 1 round pick wich is going to be 3 overall. So i could end up getting RNH or Sean Couturier or Gabriel Landeskog
