Same. Leddy and the right to swap 1st round picks for Stastny.

I thought you were an Avs fan or did I miss something about Leddy?

Agreed. In MY opinion anyways, I think Leddy's offensive numbers are a bit misleading in terms of his overall game, in the same manner as when Brett Clark put up 10 goals and 39 points for us. (although, clearly not as bad as that...it's just an example)

He's still really young though, so there is some upside there but I'm certainly not sold on him based on his defensive game and wouldn't trade Stastny for him at this point.

No reason to swap Stastny for downgrades everywhere for Colorado, and I doubt Chicago wants to do it either.

Hawks can't afford a high priced caphit like Stastny at 6.6 per year.

I don't think Leddy is that far off from Stastny. He's clearly the 3rd best dman in Chicago, is successful at pushing the play forward despite being on a pairing with Hjalmarsson/Oduya, and nearly outscored Keith despite getting secondary PP minutes. For a 21 year old that's pretty impressive, it's a much better showing than any Avs prospect so far.

It's not worth losing our best center and relying on O'Reilly/Duchene for a guy that's further along in his development than Elliott/Barrie and provides what can be considered marginal defense at best right now.

Really, it'd be like trading back for a lesser Shattenkirk.

On top of that the best consolation is swapping with a higher overall 1st rounder?

From a money standpoint CHicago loves this deal. Idealy they would move frolik and keep bolland and then free up a ton of cap space. haveing stasny as a second line C would be awesome and give their young players more time to develope although some a ready now ie. Saad, Morin
