But Colorado wouldn't. They need a Vlasic-type LHD for EJ. (In reality, Vlasic is exactly what they need).

Demers has higher upside than Braun. I wouldn't trade him unless he was traded for a forward of equal or greater upside. For example, I think Clowe+Demers would be a good start on a package for JVR.

I don't think that Paajarvi has much value right now, so I would low-ball Edmonton for him. Maybe the 55th pick in this year's draft.

I'm all for acquiring JVR.
Dubi's cap hit is high, that's true. But he's young and multi-dimensional and IMHO worth it. Rangers fans I talk too won't trade him unless it's for an upgrade, and they consider Clowe an upgrade. Rangers could also use a steady bottom-pairing defenseman, so I think they'd be willing to add.

I'd definitely low-ball for Passjarvi, but no way in hell the Oil accept a late second. He's progressing very slowly, but his potential alone is worth more than a late second.
