You win Wonk... Sharp is out for at least a month with a shoulder injury.
That totally sucks. I never like winning a trade due to injury. One of the main guys I traded you in Fantasy Baseball last season got injured a week later too. At least the guy I got in return continued sucking the rest of the year. Ovechkin was -3 today, if that makes you feel better.
The main thing I would get from that is PIM but I'm so far gone in that stat that I'm not even going to bother trying to catch up. Also, when the hell did I start sucking so hard?
I think Hartnell is more than just a PIM guy. He was drafted in the second round this season, so I assume he's solid offensively? I don't know, he's been hurt much of the year. It's the type of trade which makes sense for both teams, you have ATOI to spare and need PIM, while I need ATOI and have PIM to spare.
You can't punt a category in Rotisserie. A huge PIM guy can help your team even more than a huge goal scorer, especially when you're last in the league in PIM. You need to be solid in every category if you're going to win.
Even if I gain a huge 50 PIM on the rest of the league (which I don't see happening even if I start grabbing every badass in sight) I will move from last in PIM to 9th, which will gain me all of 3 points. If I lose even 20 seconds of ATOI I drop a more points than that. I've never played a rotisserie league before, so I'm making this up as I go along. I'm in 11th right now, so clearly I'm not a very fast learner.
I was just going to say, Matt Moulson has 7 goals and 9 assists in the last 30 days, which would make him the second best point getter on your team. Here goes nothing... If you want to counter to get more than one guy somehow, go for it. I just couldn't decide who you would want that I would be willing to give up.
What are you looking for Hartnell for Wonk? I might be interested.
I asked for Pavel Datsyuk in return from Daver, so that should show you about what I'm looking for. I'm not trying to get rid of Hartnell, it was just an offer which made sense. I saw Hartnell in a commercial, so I'm pretty sure he's a stud.
