I don't understand why the Avs would be that interested in general, let alone interested for a long time. They already have plenty of average to undersized center prospects that could potentially put up Little's 40-50 points a season. Why do they
to have a player like that. I don't get the obsession.
Maybe they believe that he has some untapped potential? I mean, and this is no offense to the new staff in Winnipeg, but I'm not sure that he was brought along properly in Atlanta.
But the Avs do have a "type" right now, they are targeting hard working, character guys. Perpahs Little fits that mold, but you're right, we're getting more into speculation at this point.
It still wouldn't surprise me if we were to acquire him in the next couple of years. Then again, perhaps the Avs feel that the "ship has sailed" so to speak? From what we know from TPS, Ottawa was VERY interested in both Jones and Galiardi around this year's trade deadline, perhaps Winnipeg was as well. And with Jones just having re-signed, it's not likely that we'll trade him this year.
