Trade Offer

I was offered Nathan MacKinnon, Chris Kreider and a 2nd for Evgeni Malkin, Sam Bennett and a 5th, should I take it?

    This is apparently a keeper, so it would help to know how many you keep, in order to calculate the value of the picks. That said, I like the upside of MacKinnon and Kreider but Malkin is a top player, when healthy. I tend to go with proven talent over potential. The only way that I would do this is if you keep a lot of players and are in serious need of a rebuild. Even then, I'd think long and hard about rejecting.

    Another thing to consider is that 3rd and 5th round picks aren't 3rd and 5th round caliber picks in keeper leagues since the top 64 - 96 or so players are already taken. Also the acquisition of Kessel means that there will be less pressure on Malkin to a certain extent.

    I would do the deal but ask for a 1st rounder in return not a 2nd. If he won't do that don't include Sam Bennett just Malkin and the 5th.
