The Avs certainly don't want Liles back. You can keep him. I really like JVR, but he still is far to unproven. I know people will say Duchene is unproven, but the fact remains JVR is a 23 year old 2nd overall pick, who has only hit 40 points once. I know he has the potential, but I think its to big a risk. Nor do we really need another winger badly enough to trade Duchene. Kadri..meh, not really a fan, but thats just my personal opinion. Other Avs fans might disagree. Not what the Avs really need. And then Blacker+3rd, which does not do much for us, since we already have Barrie/Elliot, and then the 2nd we add>the 3rd. Adding O'Bryne makes it worse. He is very underrated, but a very solid defensman. Basically this is a quality for quanity trade, which the Avs are not really interested in. We want a similiar young player with similiar potential in return if we trade on of our centers.
I would say it's the fact you have 3 top quality centers more than anything, and the fact is the leafs need a center.
