Man Giordano is so overrated around here.

In what Universe is Giordano a top pairing defencemen?

To me Gio is a 3-4 tweener.

Not saying that he shouldn't be an attractive piece to the Ave's

and the Ave's have said they want a roster player and a top prospect.

So a high draft pick doesn't necessarily have to be included.

I'm not willing to give up one of the real high end Gem's like Gaudreau, Jankowski, or Baerstchi.

But I'd be all over:

Giordano
Reinhart
Brossoit/Gilles
4th

for

O'Reilly
7th

something along those lines.

You've gotta think the Ave's probably have reasonably significant offers from 10-12 teams. The fact is Centremen are hard to come by. And if the Ave's had the above offer on the table vs the other dozen offers, I'm not so sure I'd take what Calgary is offering. But if I'm the Flames I'd atleast try
