I don't see how a losing streak will change a thing. He is on a very friendly contract and will only be an RFA after this year, and the type of player that can be inserted on any of our top 3 lines. Trading him for a very uncertain player like Despres isn't worth it. If the Avs move a top 9 player, a significant hole opens up. We don't have the prospect depth to replace a guy like McGinn internally, instead someone like Mitchell would get bumped up a line. Unless we're getting exactly what we need, I doubt McGinn will be moved. The Penguins can keep Despres if McGinn is the type of player they'd want back.
