If you get a chance to watch a Minnesota game do it. Schmidt is a fantastic player. Whoever signs him is getting a legit top 4 prospect. There are few main reasons I see the Avs signing him. First, they have seen him for years and years along side Condon. He was known coming out of high school as a very talented player who was a bit lazy and out of shape, he turned that around after his first season and is now one of the hardest workers on the team. He fills an organization need on the left side of the defense with being a solid puck mover and a guy who can QB a PP from the left. Lastly, one thing the Avs really don't have anywhere in the prospect system is a guy with a bomb that can get it through, Schmidt has that.
I am all for the Avs adding talented prospects without having to give up anything. Hopefully Schmidt sees the Avs team as a good fit and he signs with us.
