Really? No.
You can keep you precious little Tavares and Parise, at least until they decide to walk away.

Islanders get shafted - they don't even get EJ, Zajac, Kovalchuk or Duchene to go with Parise.

So, in this three-way deal, the Devils drop down to 5th and pick up Erik Johnson. The Islanders drop down to 11th and gain the opportunity to sign Parise long-term (whereas the Devs might not be able to). The Avs move up and can now pick 2nd and 4th, as well as 32nd and 35th.

Makes Lou look like a genius right off the bat. Snow too, if he can sign Parise (would be likely), and Sherman can take credit for adding 2 future mainstays, nomatter who he takes in that top 5.

Mostly, I don't know as much about the Avs, so I don't know if they're sold on Johnson, who they only recently added. Avs fans, thoughts?

3 days 'til Draft Day!!
This deal is beyond bad for Colorado.

To be fair, Dutchy grew up as an Avs fan. I don't see him walking away very easily.

Somehow it's seems to me that Dutchy loves Avs, but that' probably just a hunch.

Liles is definitely a quality player. He's not among the game's best though, which is why he can't be the centerpiece in a Parise or 4th ovearll deal.

You could say the same thing about several players on the Avs. Don't get ignorant.

EJ and Parise are better than anyone in this draft so their teams are going to trade them for draft picks

I didn't want to offend Devils fanbase, but that guy was just acting like a complete fool.

As for the Liles part, he isn't the centerpiece in my proposal, he's just one of the parts in play.

Definite no from the Avs side. Considering what was surrendered for EJ, I don't like the idea of dealing him for a pick. Yes it would be great to potentially draft both Larsson and Landeskog, but EJ is going to be in Colorado for a while.

Plus keeping the 11th overall and taking Duncan Siemens isn't a bad idea either

I just want to put the Parise thing into perspective.

Kings fans have come here often Schenn as PART of a Parise deal. Schenn is the top prospect in the league right now. The also tacked on Jack Johnson and Jonathan Bernier to really get us Devils fans listening.

Basically what I'm saying is the Kings fans substantially added to Schenn (again, the best prospect in the league) in order to meet our demands. Parise won't be let go for a pick, unless the other team substantially adds.

Had nothing to do with "our" demands. Was just a matter of not being a terrible proposal. This one is abnormally bad and shame it hasn't been euthanized.

That's cool the Devils and Isles keep the better players and you keep the under performing former 1st overall pick.

I wouldn't do it. Again, the best proposal we've received on HF for Parise is JJ, Schenn, Bernier, and a pick. Schenn and Bernier are two of the top three prospects in the world, and LA still added Jack Johnson and a 2nd (I think). If the 2nd and 11th overall picks became as good as two of the top three prospects in the league, Colorado would still have to add. Not to mention, they Avs prospects would be further away from the NHL that Schenn and Bernier.

You can keep your precious little Erik Johnson until he breaks his leg in another golf cart "accident."

Yeah, but walking out of Minnesota with Larsson, Landeskog, and Zibanejad would be pretty sweet.

yeah, no bias in this one at all. Drop 6 spots and a second to get one of the top players in the NHL. Very realistic.
