Yeah it makes sense for the Avs, and as much as I would like to add a player like ROR, I don't do it for DZ. This kid Barrie hasn't proven he can play the sort of defense that DZ can, and provide even strength points. Add to the fact that DZ didn't let his contract fiasco escalate, and has shown the ability to play at a high level with consistency (Powerplay aside).

ROR upgrades the middle for sure, but the rangers spend most nights counting on five defense, you take one away, especially a reliable work horse, then you're losing a lot of quality minutes out there, both on O and D.

If DZ quarterbacked the PP like he was hungry for PP minutes, and Richards was on track, then I wouldn't even buy into this rumor. If Slats can somehow pull one out here, maybe something around Boyle or Stralman, but Sherman will want to make a deal like EJ trade I'm guessing.

Anyone know whats up in COL and all the young malcontents there? Wolski, Meuller, Duchene, Statsny, Stewart, ROR? Young players showing signs of high level hockey in recent years but not becoming a star or a franchise player?
