    1 year league, goals hold the most weight, but only slightly (2.5G, 2.0A). Point is up for grabs and surprisingly, no one has grabbed him yet.

    I've been trying trade barzal + for a good player + someone I'd be willing to drop for the past couple of weeks. The league only has 6 people in it. Lineup is as follows:

    Forwards - Crosby, Barzal, Panarin, Arvidsson, Debrincat, Tarasenko, Tavares, Eichel, Scheifele, Connor.

    Defence - Pietrangelo, Parayko, Josi, Werenski.

    Goalies - Vasilevskiy, Lundqvist

    Yes, I realise I have a surplus of centre's, I've been trying to trade one, but no one has been biting on any of my trade requests.

    I would. Barzal will never get you any goals and probably won't outscore u
    Point this year.

    I dropped Barzal for Pettersson a couple weeks ago

    Point continues to be under valued and I would take him over Barzal immediately. Lee and Bailey have continued their production since Tavares left, but Barzal is likely getting the attention Tavares got from defenders and it's going to be difficult to repeat his performance last year. It'll come in time, but Point would be the better option now.

    Indeed! There's got to be someone worse than Barzal on the roster to drop.

    Great advice! Then he can just bench all his great centers because there are no spots to play them. /sarcasm

    There is a reason he cannot trade a C. It's only a 6 team league with what I assume to be only 2 C spots and everyone has at least 3 good centers, right?

    Drop Barzal and don't add Point unless you also drop anothet C. You have too many Cs. A lesser player you can play is worth more than a great player you cannot play.

    What are the other cats? Your D is very weak

    Don't be ***hole, I missed the 6 teamer line - of course, if it's only 6 teams, drop Barzal and stream whomever the **** he wants, as there are tons of other available guys on the wire. He also doesn't mention how many C's he can roster. If it's only 2 C spots, then of course you dump away.
