If you want to acquire a huge asset like a #1 D, you have to give up something that hurts, and that would be Landeskog+. I doubt that the GMs of the teams for any of the Dmen I mentioned above would trade any of those Dmen for Landeskog unless the Avs added to him.
I'm sorry...have you even been reading what Avs fans have said? No one has mentioned guys like Weber or Pietrangelo. Thats not what were looking for. Were looking for a partner to play with EJ. As Lonewolfe said, a guy like Yandle would be perfect. I don't know how you came up with the idea we are looking for one of the top defenders the in league or anything like that.
