Whoops, read it backwards. But still, I'd rather have Stasny than Bozak and EJ than Phaneuf. The difference isn't a 4th for a 2nd. That trade nets us a long term center that we absolutely don't need, a defenseman that could leave as a UFA next summer, and a 2 round pick bump.

The absolute LAST THING the Avs need to do is trade a locked up defenseman and pending UFA center for a locked up center and pending UFA defenseman. It is the exact opposite of what we need.
