Baertschi has sky high potential and is one of the top Forward prospects in the game. Gaudreau has high potential as well
They're good, but not when you compare them to a superstar franchise player in Spezza and a former Calder runner up who would be a number one center on a lot of teams. Top line players for prospects doesn't sound fair to me.
Especially to Ottawa, they would need a hell of a lot more incentive to trade Spezza.
Is the biggest need for the Avs scoring wingers? That's what I thought it was. If not we can change the prospects.
No, it is certainly not. Avs fans have stated what we need MANY times. We need a top pairing LH defensman, that can play now. NO prospects. Avs have no interest in setting our team back and trading Duchene for prospects. There is no basis of a deal to be made here from an Avalanche perspective
