It's a little early but Varly and Johnson look like cornerstone pieces in this franchise. Downie will be a very interesting and versatile player. Sgarbossa could be a very good top six forward. I don't think he's made any awful trades, although I don't really understand the Liles trade.
That's the only trade i can safely say was a good one and will pay off in long run when or if this organization puts together a solid team. Varly can be a top 10 or top 5 goalie playing for a solid team with solid D.

Mcginn is another average forward who will get you points every now and then, something the Avs have too much of. Too many streaky scorers and lack of consistent scorers.

Jones, Mcginn etc will go one hot streaks but at the same time they will go on very cold streaks where they are frustrating to watch.

Sgarbossa hasn't played a game in the NHL yet, way too early to say who and what he is going to be in the NHL.

I'm not sold on EJ yet, not that impressed with him so far, but i do think he needs a solid partner to reach his potential.

Downie is a good 3rd line forward who plays hard and can get you points, something every team needs unless he's taking stupid penalties, so ok, i'll give this trade a plus so far.

As far as Hunwick, O'byrne i'll put it this way. I'd get rid of everyone on that blue line except for EJ, simple as that.
