So, in this three-way deal, the Devils drop down to 5th and pick up Erik Johnson. The Islanders drop down to 11th and gain the opportunity to sign Parise long-term (whereas the Devs might not be able to). The Avs move up and can now pick 2nd and 4th, as well as 32nd and 35th.

Makes Lou look like a genius right off the bat. Snow too, if he can sign Parise (would be likely), and Sherman can take credit for adding 2 future mainstays, nomatter who he takes in that top 5.

Mostly, I don't know as much about the Avs, so I don't know if they're sold on Johnson, who they only recently added. Avs fans, thoughts?

3 days 'til Draft Day!!
This deal is beyond bad for Colorado.
