COL is the most interesting for me. There would be 2 different trades I'd be interested in and only 1 I think would impress avs fans

Kessel for:

ROR + 1st 2013

or

M. Duchene.

Ethier would have me happy. Ofcourse I am not pushing Kessel out nor is Leaf management (atleast we should believe that) and he is my favourite player but the Leafs need to win and improve.
This is the one that I keep coming back to. It just seems to make a lot of sense for both teams.

COL gets a young, dynamic winger to play with either Duchene or Statsny, depending on the chemistry and because they're so deep at centre they can afford to move ROR.

We get a young, defensively responsible centre, who I think is ready to break out. I love the idea of having ROR and Kadri at centre going forward.

Plus we'd get another first rounder, that plus our own would go a long way to giving us a more enviable prospect pool.
