LW/RW Jamie McGinn ($680K RFA)

Avs get a ideal top-line winger for Stastny & Lando, plus a 2012 2nd RND pick.

Sabres get their #1 centreman & a physical 3rd line winger with some scoring upside allowing them to dump/demote Kaleta,Ellis or McCormick.
Absolutly Terrible deal from the Avs, and Im actually a fan of Vanek. Vaneks contract is horrible, even worse then Stastnys, and the Avs arent going to trade McGinn after watching him explode for us after the deadline.

Honestly, if you want Duchene, its going to cost Myers, and even then Id be skeptical to do the deal, as there is no point to give up Duchene for Myers, when by the sounds of it we have a legitimate shot at Suter, and even if we dont get Suter, we still have a #1 in EJ, and there are more solid Dmen comming through Free Agency in the next couple years.

And even the average fan would probably know that Landeskog plays with Oreilly, not Stastny, and McGinn plays with Stastny(and went on a tear while playing next to him).
