No interest in EJ who is overrated because of his draft position. He's a top four defenseman at best. 1st overall is nice, but no proven talent coming back.

But with the Avs management, I'd ask for the same package for Chris Phillips. They'd probably say yes
Never understood why people get so offended in these threads.

When the pick is first overall, it's right to be overvalued.

Ej is probably underrated due to his draft position. Everyone wants to slap the bust label on him. They dont like it when a first overall is only pretty good. Its a better story when he is either excellent or a bust. Ej gets thrown into the bust category because he isnt elite. He's very good in his own zone. He just didn't develop the offensive skills that were expected. If there was a redraft, he definitely wouldn't go first overall, but he'd still be a first rounder. He's a #2 on most teams. On a few teams with great d, he'd be a 3/4.

The avs are under new management that literally has not made one signing or trade. Not sure how you have any information to even form an opinion on them yet. I'll just assume you have absolutely no knowledge of the avs players or management.
