True enough, I mean even though Gally was giving up insane players he was getting back an elite player.....this Goligoski trade, swee is getting nothing for that elite player
The Suter deal is not even in the same league as my Goligoski deal...
Alex Goligoski is NOT an elite player. I really believe he is a top 4 defenceman and would give the elite defenceman title to players such as Shea Weber, Erik Karlsson, Kris Letang, and Zedano Chara. And to that point his ratings clearly suggest a top 4 guy rather then a top 2, "elite" defenceman (62CK, 82PA, 72SC, 73DF, http://www.cdcsimlea...m=27&player=769).
wouldnt call goligoski an elite player, though, swee did get nothing in return for him. Not sure how this one got by the review board.
I think it's unfair to say "swee did get nothing in return". It seems like 1st round picks in the STHS have PO ratings around 70-75, and both players DAL recieved have those high potential rating's, Sundstrom (75) and Kuhnhackl (70). Here is a look at the rest of the ratings for the two prospects sweedishdomination traded for:
Johan Sundstrom: 63SK, 72ST, 56SC, 54PA, 75PO http://www.cdcsimlea...=29&player=1508
Tom Kuhnhackl: 68SK, 64PA, 57SC, 64DF, 70PO http://www.cdcsimlea...=29&player=1601
Also included in the deal DAL recieved 2 second round picks. Second rounders are bound to get sweedish another two prospects rated at around a 65-70 PO rating. Pretty good to begin that infamous sweefish rebuild.
And the final point I would like to raise is that there have been a number of questionable deals both in this league and through other expirences on the canucks fantasy forum. GM's have different motives for each trade and may not become visible until much later. Thinking of this offseason alone the deals that come to mind of being unfair are the Nyquist + Andersson for a 3rd deal or the Havlat for virtually nothing deal. Will these other trades be looked at by the "trade review board" if my Goligoski deal does? In the end I accept whatever VC decides to do with the trade that Ari accepted and announced in the thread.
