svatos is one of their best players, i see the avs shedding some their dead weight for cheap before even contemplating a trade that involves marek.
but yah barring the AVS cap situation (which BlindGuardien eluded to )if we can pull it off a ryder for svatos trade it would be nice.
think outside of the box:
how about ryder (1.8 million estimated), garth murray (575k) and a 2nd for svatos (1.5 million estimated) and ian lapperierre? (1.06 million)? would the avs do it? if they strongly believe that they can't resign svatos (because there's a lot of ugly contracts on their team that might be difficult to dump), something like that could happen (doesn't have to be the habs, hah).
it works contract wise. avs get a durable scorer unlike svatos and a good young checker that can has a few years before he hits the UFA market. habs get an injury prone but exceptional scorer and a strong 2-way player for the checking line.
with the cap world, anything can happen. perhaps a team like the capitals may trade a pick for turgeon giving them the cap room to resign svatos. hmmm
