So I had a back and forth with another player over a trade that got the big veto. I understand how someone may dislike it, but I don't think it was so unbalanced that it should have been dissalowed.
I have Yanni Gourde and Seth Jones and was offered Tavares and Drew Doughty.
I 100% concede that based on pure stats Tavares is well above Gourde. However, I broke down the players average game stats and they aren't terribly off
Tavares (C) +Doughty (D)
Gourde (LW,RW,C) +Jones (D)
Given Gourde has full forward position eligibility and the team trading away Tavares to me has 5 pure centers, I feel this trade should have been allowed as the stats are only a little one sided, but the team on the losing end of the stats is gaining winger positions that he needs.
Opinions on the veto?
Alright, fair enough guys, thanks. I guess I have always put more emphasis on multi role players with fewer points than star players in single roles. I thought this was unbalanced in my favor, but not as much as I guess everyone else did at this point in the season. Oh well
If you even just look at what you posted, Tavares/Doughty are better in every category across the board - and would be expected by pretty much everyone to do better going forward as well.
Essentially, this trade is Tavares for Gourde as Doughty and Jones value is basically a wash (though I'd rather have Jones as well).
Obviously, that is a very lopsided trade, though I don't endorse vetoing. If the other guy believes Gourde and Jones will be better rest of season, I think he should be allowed to act on that opinion.
I do know Tavares is better any day of the week, I just assumed Gourde's 3 position aibility would be taken into consideration as he is a 60 point player with C,LW,RW eligibility, vs. Tavares being an 80 point player with just C eligibility. But I've accepted I am way off in this valuation ha.
