Thread: Zucker
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>brgh4life</b></div><div>That is just an absurd over-payment.</div></div>

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>MNBassman</b></div><div>First, some education...Brodin is a much, much, MUCH better hockey player than Zucker’s! It’s not even close! I know most people think it’s the other way around, but it’s not. Brodin is a terrific player, an amazing skater, an absolute shut-down defender, and a one man breakout machine! He is also (finally) finding his offensive touch as he has 20ish assists this year.

With that said, I sincerely don’t think the Penguins have the resources to acquire both Brodin and Zucker. Assuming your 1sts are going to be in the 20-30 range as long as Crosby, Malkin, Letang, and Guentzel are still playing well, I would require your next 3 1sts and Poulin to even consider this. Call me crazy, but Brodin is a pretty special player and Zucker is no slouch himself.</div></div>

Since someone said no to both sides, you're probably close in value.

you probably gotta break it down to what each individual player is worth.

Zucker - First and a third (or equivalents). He offered 2021 first, simon, probably gotta add a tad more

Brodin - minimum 2 firsts + maybe a prospect and someone to take his spot. He offered 2022 first (probably gotta chance to 2020), POJ (first rd pick, but not highest value), Hallander (2nd rd pick, injured rn so low numbers), Johnson (bad contract but has been decent this year, Guerin was in pittsburgh when the signing happened so he probably doesn't mind him).

I like it, it's close. Thoughts?
