First of all Barrie has looked pretty good the last couple games, but is nowhere near declaring him an NHL success.

Second, you named two of the only three real NHL defenseman (Regehr) this team has drafted and developed in the last 20 years. This is not a strength of theirs.

Third, Little is in no way a high end offensive winger.

Fourth, no team except maybe Nashville does well with top pairing D men. They're extremely hard to find, and that's why the Avs need to do their best to get as close to one as possible with the biggest trade piece they've had in years.
