Yeah but at the same time, I think that we're going to get a good package coming back. We can't act like he'll be gone and we'll have nothing to show for it. Like I said before, it will sting but COULD end up being a blessing in disguise.

Lol, yeah that would be great but I don't think RoR signs any offer sheet, I would love it but his groovy hipster dad brainwashed him during negotiations to think that he needs to play elsewhere because of management's 'style'. According to Brian, management would need to 'show RoR the money/show him some love' and then hide under some coats and hope that everything works out fine.

O'REILLY UPDATE: Looks like the #Sabres are now favourite to land RO while the #Rangers have pulled out. #NYI #LEAFS #FLYERS still in it


NYI, Leafs, and Flyers seem to be in every rumor. NYI are the surprising one to me.

O'Reilly for Tavares.

I would be happy with any of those, yet sadly I don't think avs management could squeeze it

henchman24 02-15-2013 11:40 AM

From all the rumors that are out there, it seems the price for ROR is super high. So that might be the type of trade it takes. Time will tell.

Ennis + top prospect from buffalo is something I'd be really interested in. I think we can have three good scoring lines that are defensively responsible if we get Ennis.

A 13 year old in his mom's basement. Probably knows next to nothing, but claims there are offers on the table from the Leafs and Buffalo. I guess it is at least some news, where we have had next to nothing for most of this.

NYI, Leafs, and Flyers seem to be in every rumor. NYI are the surprising one to me.

From the Sabres, I'd want:

Hodgson+Girgensons

Here is my reasoning:
I've always really like Hodgson as a prospect. (ranked him 5th overall in 2008)

I think that what we are losing in RoR from a defensive standpoint, Hodgson makes up for offensively. He has an obvious previous rapport with Duchene and could slide in as a #2C eventually and this is especially important if Stastny does not want to re-sign with the Avs. Hodgson would be especially useful to help our PowerPlay.

In Girgensons, we'd be potentially getting a big, solid #3 guy in the mold of Jordan Staal (I had him ranked 13th) but to a lesser extent, obviously. I think he's a real 'safe' prospect in the sense that even if he doesn't end up good enough to be a top-6 forward, he still has the ability to adapt his role and play a more defensive game.

I have a hard time believing that the Sabres are offering a 'good return' though because historically, they've been notoriously difficult to deal with specifically when the Avs were trying to acquire Chris Gratton from them :facepalm: way back when.

Sabres may balk at that asking price but I guess that's too bad for them then. I can't see the Avs taking on a bad contract or a guy like Ennis who is essentially a player very close to what Joey Hishon already is. Ennis is very good but there is a reason why every Sabre fan doesn't mind giving him up. I plan on watching the next few Sabre games, to see 'wazzup' but most certainly there is something up with that guy.

How do you guys feel about Johansson & Orlov?

AslanRH 02-15-2013 11:56 AM

With the call up of the Goalie for LEM as DDC wrote, would one assume a team lacking in Goalie depth is in play?

I think we will be very underwhelmed with the return. Especially when you consider what we are giving up. Anybody but ROR.:cry: Well not anybody, but.....

Possible. LEM have 4 goalies up, with the Aittokallio hurt. So maybe one of Patterson or Pickard?

I personally wouldn't be thrilled (I could learn to like it), but a number on here would probably like that trade.

Based on what? His one minor concussion where his missed no time? Or the fact that he's been almost a PPG player for a year now?

I think the opposite. Sounds like a lot of teams are in on this, and teams will kill to get a player like ROR in their lineup. I think the Avs will do just fine on the return.

It would have to be Nielsen + Nino ( or maybe Strome) . The Isles won't trade Reinhart imo

Makes me nervous. Myers' multi-year slump seems like he needs more than just a change of scenery. Nor do I trust the Avs organization to be one where defensemen go to fix their games.

volaju 02-15-2013 12:11 PM

Trade ROR for Porter + McNabb
