- A teams top forward prospect
- a young 6'5" RFA Dman who has had some success in the NHL.

If you think that value is laughable (as your comment suggests) then you are absolutely dreaming about what you think you will get, given the premise set out in the original post of this thread.

And before someone points it out, I'm aware Bozak is a UFA at season's end, but I highly doubt COL would have any problems signing the hometown boy to a contract extension at a decent price.
You could add it as a condition to the deal if you want.
What does Colorado stand to gain from that deal though? A couple of could-be players for a player thats been in the NHL since he's been drafted? He also has more playoff experience then two of those players.

Colorado needs players that will help the team. None of them do that. Deal might even make us a bit worse plus its not like we already have dmen that can be or are as good as Franson in Elliot or Barrie.
