It may seem redundant, but as cumbersome as the menu system is in GM Connected, I'd much rather be able to think about a trade on CAG than have to go look everything up in the game.
So I played tonights game game and lost one of my top forwards in LW Thomas Vanek for 39 games with a concussion. I needed to replace him so I went on the trade market. I proposed a trade with Columbus for LW Nick Foligno. I offered a C prospect and a 1st and a 3rd I believe (I know it sounds like a lot but they wouldn't accept anything lower, plus my farm system is stacked from recent drafts). But anyways, I just wanted to let everyone know on here, I think Nate still has to approve it. I wasn't trying to be sneaky or anything I just read the above post and I proposed the trade. If anyone has a problem with it then Nate can always Veto the trade. Again, to summarize:
Buffalo receives: LW Nick Foligno (82 overall, 24 years old, $3.085 mil cap hit for 3 years, 3.5 star potential)
Columbus receives: C Kevin Sundher (60 overall, 20 years old, $0.63 mil cap hit for 3 years, 3 star potential)
2013 1st round pick
2014 3rd round pick
(I'm 99% sure those were the picks but I could be wrong as the trade screen reset as soon as they accepted it)
Hope nobody has a problem with the trade, I know I'm overpaying here but I'm in desperate need for a good LW and I have the assets that Columbus wanted.
