Proposal: Colorado - San Jose

To Colorado: D Mike Rathje
To San Jose: D Martin Skoula, COL 2nd round pick, WSH 3rd round pick

San Jose is struggling and Rathje is their oldest defenseman at 29, who's also making $2.03 million this season. Skoula is 23 years old, making $1.1 million for another three years.

I'm not even sure if the Sharks would look into moving Rathje, but would this type of offer work if they were? Picking up an NHL capable, young defenseman who's signed cheap and long-term with two good draft picks.

The Avs would still have their own first round pick, Florida's second round pick and their own third round pick in terms of draft choices in the top three rounds.

Avs pairings after:

Rathje - Blake
Skrastins - Foote
Liles - Morris

Sharks pairings after:

Stuart - Hannan
McLaren - Preissing
Skoula - Ehrhoff

Thoughts? Be kind. <3
