However, is the goal not to determine the most realistic, logical and fair proposal possible?

Duchene is 21 and Ryan is 25, yet Duchene's best season was 4 points less than Ryan's while he was playing alongside Getzlaf and Perry.

So what are you going to add to Ryan to make it worthwhile for the Avs to trade him for a winger, not even our most pressing need?

Better yet, even if the Avs considered moving Stastny for him, who does Ryan play with? We have McGinn, Downie, Parenteau, Jones, Hejduk and Landeskog whom are all viable top 6/9 options, none of them should be playing 4th line minutes, let alone the fact we'd have no 3rd line center for 2 of the 7 wingers to play with.

It simply doesn't make sense no matter how you cut it.
