I'm sure Toronto fans will say Gardiner is a deal breaker for them. Colorado fans might feel the same way.

What? Really? Naaaah, I can't imagine that being the case.

Tyler Bozak has been proposed to Colorado so much, I actually think he's part of the team!

Oh and GIANT HELL NO on RoR for Gardiner.

Yes EJ has potential to be #1, but we don't know exactly. Wilson has potential to be a #2 as well... And there's no way I'd give away Stazz. He's the Avs best center. Get rid of him or Duchene then Avs C would look thin.

And yeah I'd take a gander at Carle and Suter before signing Zanon... Oh well. I guess he was just a replacement for Hejda's injury.

I laughed at this. It would mean that the Avs effectively traded Quincey for Ballard. That's such a huge downgrade it's hilarious.

Or do we absolutely NEED to trade one because:

A) someone is holding a gun to our head, we MUST trade one of them?
B) it's unfair, other teams need centers too?
C) we are READY to compete for the Stanley Cup and trading one of our centers is the last piece of the puzzle?

You'd imagine they are interested? No. I don't think they are. Only a weekly Stastny to TO thread. They don't care about our centers.




Oh, and ummm... Hell no.

Good point. I would have gave Carle 10 million a year if it meant SOB left the team.

Yes, I am exaggerating, but seriously...? I would not even give you a 3rd for Ballard. We don't need more #4/5/6 guys. Especially not ones earning 4.2m a year.

Ballard >>>> Quincey. I'd love to steal Ballard away from VAN. Would not trade him for Downie though

Agreed. By quite a bit too. (and I too, hate Quincey)

Canuck fans have been looking to unload Ballard and his $4.2M for quite some time now.

SOB takes a beating from you guys since we re-signed him but it's unwarranted in my opinion.

People seem to forget he played a solid 60 games for us last season.

It wasn't until Genius Joe Sacco (I'm trying it out) started playing him as a top pairing guy with EJ, that the wheels came off, he started thinking he was Bobby Orr and we started paying for it on a nightly basis with horribly costly mistakes. If Sacco had limited his minutes as a #4-6 guy instead, he would have been fine. Ideally, he's our #5 guy and that's the kind of role he can realistically succeed in.

Why, just because he doesn't put up as much offensive numbers as he used to? Vancouver never gives him a chance. He's always been on the 3rd pairing if I'm not mistaken. Either way, without the offensive numbers he's still a good shutdown guy. But saying Quincey is better than Ballard is pure madness.

Apparently you have not watched Ballard since he joined Vancouver. I hate Quincey but I would definitely take him over Ballard.

SOB could win the Norris and I would still rather have Carle for 10 million over him. Other Avs fans get frustrated with O'Brien, I despise that jackass.

Good shutdown guy? My apologies for my comments about Ballard. I meant Keith Ballard. You clearly have been watching someone else with the same last name.
