Just for an example, I think that a package of Coburn + Simmonds + 11th OA is fair value-wise but I highly doubt either team does it (Flyers need to build around Giroux, not trade away his supporting crew for another potential superstar) and the Avs don't need more depth players, they NEED a superstar. I think the only thing from the Flyers that would get them to pull the trigger would be Giroux and then of course it's a "no go" from the Flyers.
that pretty much sums it up right there in terms of what the Avs are looking for...
