In which case the Avs could very well end up with a 16-20 pick & a late third.

Edit: Also, if the Flames get him, make the playoffs and then sign him long term in the summer in the $4.5m-$5m range long term... it could be an outstanding move. A lot of trust to put in a guy who has just held out for this long though.
That's why it's a bad situation for Colorado. At the end of the day, the Flames won't be bad enough to make that a prime pick (top 7) and their development as an organization is severely stalled since they lose a really important player but don't get any immediate help.
