View Full Version : Pieterangelo...do I aquire him now?

Points only keeper where Dmen get 2 points per goal...everything else is 1 point.

I am out of it this year and am in total rebuild mode. Thanks to the WAS connection of AO, Backstron and Semin.

I am being offered Pieterangelo by one of the top teams still in the running for Rafalski and Steen...Steen is insignificant as he is not a keeper for me.

Do I make this trade? Does Pieteragelo improve my team for next year or years to come with respect to holding on to Rafalski?

He wants an answer soon...thought I would ask you boys for help.

I wouldn't.

Ask for more, but he's definitely a player to target.

Probably have only seen 4-5 Blues games which isn't a huge sample but Pieterangelo definitely passed the eye test with me, he just looks good and still a pup.

His progression this year and upside down the road with their skilled youth would be worth Rafalski

How many do you keep? Can we see the rest of your team?

I can keep 8. The rest of my keepers are AO, Backstrom (was), Semin, Getzlaf, McBain, Gonchar, Crawford...and Rafalski.

Others on the bubble are Ennis, Brodeur. I currently own three 1st rounders next year and three 3rd rounders. !2 team, points only keeper.

C: Backstrom, Getzlaf
LW: Ovechkin
RW: Semin
D: McBain, Gonchar, Rafalski
G: Crawford

I would make that trade. Pietrangelo has very high upside, so he's a good target. Rafalski is getting up there in age and if/when Lidtstrom retires, he's going to have a lot more on his plate. Go for it!

Also, try to trade Gonchar. He's not much of a keeper at this point. If you are going to throw in the towel on this season, get younger. I would also try to trade Semin for a less injury-prone RW once he goes on a hot streak.

I'd be keeping Ennis over Pieterangelo. I'd also keep Rafalski over Pieterangelo.

Is there something about McBain I don't know about?
