G, A, +/-, PPP. PIM, SOG

H2H, 10 team league

I give up Bobby Ryan, Michael Cammalleri, Jonathan Toews, Corey Crawford

I get Henrik Sedin, Zach Parise, Ilya Kovalchuk, Kari Lehtonen

What you guys think?

Toews = Sedin
Cammy <<< Parise
Ryan > Kovalchuk
Crawford > Lehtonen

I do that and don't look back. I really like the idea of having Parise and Kovalchuk together for H2H, even moreso if you have any other pairing like that from another team.

I'm a Habs guy, but Cammy doesn't do much for you fantasy-wise. You're losing an injury risk in Cammy and taking one on in Lehtonen, so as long as you have a decent third tender, I like the chances of Parise-Kovalchuk giving you a whole lot of scoring in that deal.

Yeah I like what thorbs said if you still have 2 solid Goalies after trading Crawford then it's worth taking on the Lehtonen injury risk.

After that trade my goalies will be Lehtonen, Ward, Pavelec. What you guys think?

If there are even guys like Linback, Markstrom, Greiss on the wire, or even someone like Nabokov or DiPietro, I'd still do the deal.

If, by some chance those guys are gone and there's literally no goalies worth anything on the wire, hold off.

I'm actually pretty high on Pavelec this year so I think between those 3 Goalies you should have enough.. Another thing that I didn't bring up before is that you don't have any other Devils do you? You're adding Kovy and Parise and my general rule of thumb is 2 offensive players from 1 team, MAX (unless it's an incredibly deep league).

Toews does not equal Sedin. Not even close.

Toews doesn't have the potential to produce as much as Henrik?
Even with Kane moving to centre, let's look at it:

G - Toews
A - Sedin
+/- even
PPP - Sedin
PIM - even
SOG - Toews

So, 2 each, with 2 being even. Thanks for coming out though, with that really insightful post.
