IMO, the larger problem is the coaching staff maximizing said talent, but that's off topic.

Replacing Downie with someone like Sykora might have made sense if the Avs had all of the other necessary pieces in place to make a possible playoff run. If they are close to signing O'R and Landeskog's injury doesn't seem serious, then perhaps they could do such a thing. Without either of them for an extended period (let alone both of them), why move assets?
