Realistically I don't see the Avs dealing McLeod or Hunwick. They are playing well and have multiple years left on their contracts. Jones isn't play well and I don't think any team would touch his contact at this point.

That leaves forward Kobasew, and defense O'Brien, Zanon, O'Byrne.

O'Brien and Zanon aren't playing well and have multi-year deals. However their contracts are affordable and every playoff team is looking for defensive depth. I think one could potentially be dealt. Zanon most likely staying and O'Brien being dealt.

Kobasew is garbage, Colorado would be lucky to get a 4th rounder or C level prospect. O'Byrne is most certainly going to be dealt by the deadline. Colorado just has too many defensemen under contract in the NHL and too many pushing for roster spots from the AHL to commit to O'Byrne. I think O'Byrne fetches Colorado a 2nd rounder, or 3rd and something else thrown in.
