IMO Borque, Smith, and Watson are the more interesting, but I don't believe there is enough incentive to move from 1 to 4 with those. Roy has said the Avs don't want to move out of the top 3, but would consider 4 if a big enough offer. I take that as an overpayment.
With that I could see the Avs targeting Josi to improve their top 4 (need LD for that as EJ and Barrie occupy the right spots). What about a #1 + for #4 + Josi? The + would have to be significant.
When you say the + would need to be significant is that from your end or ours? No offense but Josi is a top pairing defenseman already and dealing him to move up to number 1 creates more holes for us than it fills. Josi isn't going anywhere any time soon. He's actually a better player at this point than Suter was.
