Despite what Mike Kiszla writes in the Denver Post. Matt Duchene is not available.

Myers better be coming back if Duchene is involved.

Call me crazy but I wouldn't do that from a buffalo side

Duchene hasn't shown enough to warrant a kings ransom, yet at the same time from a COL perspective he wouldn't come cheap, he is simply untradeable

BUT if we do move Duchene and to Buffalo, Myers would need to be in the deal

Honest attempt, thank you.

But not interested from a Colorado perspective.

Duchene's a great player but that's too much to give up from a Buffalo perspective.

Not really interested in adding more bodies TBH from the Avs perspective. Prefer a good hockey trade like Stastny for Vanek or Duchene for Myers type.

OT: Stastny for Ryan. Only trade I would want to be seen all summer.

Don't want to derail the thread.

It just does not stop when it comes to our centers.. So far the only players that has been brought up with any sort of favorable response when talking about trading our centers are guys like Yandle and Ryan.

Oh yeah a deal around M. Staal for Stastny got some favorable responses as well.

See the trend? Quality.. Not quantity.

Avs are definitely not giving up a 21 year old with franchise potential, and especially one that just took a discount to prove himself because he wants to be here.

Who exactly in this deal are we suppose to be excited about? Vanek? Great hes 28 years old and has what two years left..

Yeah the value is there but it's quite clearly not the kind of deal that would get anyone excited enough to move a 21 year old with Duchenes track record and potential.

Probably in the ballpark of what would need to be offered for Colorado to even consider moving Duchene. Too much for Buffalo to do it. Pass.

Value is there, but not what the Avs would be looking to get back for Duchene. Think of a top pairing D.

Its a decent offer, but the Avs pass. And if were moving Duchene to Buffalo Myers would have to be coming back.

Sekera is a better player than his reputation around the league indicates. There are many a Sabres fan who think he was hands down our best D last year. So you're asking for our best forward, arguably our best D, and a decent C prospect. That's Rick Nash overspending. Far too much to give up.

I'd be interested in Vanek plus picks or Vanek plus Adam, but once you throw in Sekera like a throwaway player, you're not on the right page.

Myers, unfortunately for you guys, is our most untouchable player, probably. His ceiling is way too high.

Landeskog and Johnson are more untouchable in my opinion.

Buffalo can take on a cap dump if need be.
Counter..

Stastny
Jones

for

Marcus Foligno
Zemgus Girgensons
Brayden McNabb

And Colorado can take a cap dump if need be. (In fact we would probably have to find some salary somewhere.)

Unfortunately for everyone we have lots of untouchable players, Landeskog, Duchene, EJ, O'Reilly & Varly and probably in that order as it stands right now based on talent and position.

That's fine. When it comes to building a championship team, I'd rather build from the back end out.

I think it's fairly close when it comes to the importence of a #1 center and a #1 defender. Especially if they have not quite gotten there yet but look to have solid potential.

Weber is worth more than Duchene

Giroux is worth more than Myers..

Duchene & Myers are fairly close in value beyond our own fan bias..
