I don't personally think Colorado would make that trade. (O'Reilly + Elliott for Hanzal + Gormley) Yeah we have a better 'chance' of Gormley turning into a #1/#2 D but he is no where near close to being ready for that. Too big of a question mark IMO... At least in a trade involving O'Reilly.
Hanzal's better than Radar for now and would be really awesome for this team if we really are going down the 90s Stars team strategy, deep set of really hard to play against forwards, a big defense and great goaltending. If I were more sold on Gormley I would actually like that trade but I just don't think Gormley's ready to partner EJ any time soon, and if we move EJ I'd want someone like Kulikov, Yandle or Vlasic who could play with EJ from day one.
