Those are worth much more then 2 way 50-60 point centers. Kind of like comparing Joe Thornton to Mike Richards, I'll take Thornton and his far superior offense to Richards great two way play and 65 points.

It looks like a few Avs fans would take Sekera, Armia and Pysyk for RoR and a few Sabre fans thinks its too much. I would much rather give up those 3 then even think about trading guys like Grigs, Girgs, Foligno or Ennis. I also am not as high on Armia as most fans are. But I think it's still a very fair deal for both teams, Sekera would instantly improve Colorados defense, and Pysyk and Armia are potential top 4 dman and #1 winger, and both were recent 1st round picks (2010 and 2011)
I make the trade I suggested because Grigorenko is far from a lock to be a top five scoring center.
