We have assets to offer :

-Zach Smith
-Da Costa

Why not do a package out of these assets.

I recommend you a Zibanejad + Smith + 3th package. We can switch Smith for P. Wierchioch and a 5th.


Zibanejad is a young powerforward, playing in the NHL, that has an interesting blend of speed, skills, and physical play. On good days, while being 19 years of age, he can be Ovechkin-lite. HOLD UP! I'm not saying he's going to be Ovechkin but he showed flashes of brilliant play. He can be a Ryan Kesler kind of player. Interested?

Smith, 22 years old, is on his way to be an elite 3rd line center, who can be kind of a Mike Fisher but a little bit less offensive.

P. Wierchioch is a young puck-moving defenseman, 24 years old. He skates really well for a 6'4 guy, he can pass really well, he can shoot. He's on his way to be an offensive defenseman, somewhere between Kuba and Wideman.
If we think Mika will be Ovechkin lite/Kesler and Zack Smith be Fisher lite... We probably shouldnt deal them both unless we are getting "Sidney Crosby lite"

Im all for getting O'Reilly... But I dont think Id be willing to give up both of those guys... If we had a greater need at #2 C.... Then yes... But with Spezza/Turris... Im not sure...

Are the Avs looking for quality or quantity? 1-2 grade A pieces or 3-4 B pieces?
