I think the Avs will do just fine in the trade, but I have realistic expectations. I heard someone say the Avs have to get a defenseman with #1 potential. Since when do teams give those up so easily? And when do they give them up for a center who is more likely to top out as a great 2nd line center?

Some people don't like MDZ. That's fine, and everyone will have different opinions. I think he has #2 potential and would be a great fit with EJ, who is developing into more of a defensive rock than a two-way guy, much like Marc Staal.

Teams value #2/3 defensemen a lot, so I don't see how getting a defenseman like that is so bad. Get a Kulikov/MDZ type in the trade and I'll be satisfied.
