Lupul OR Phaneuf for Stastny

To COL

Lupul (to be extended)
Connolly
(9m)

To TOR

Stastny
Mitchell
(7.7m)

Col runs Duchene and O Reilly on 1st and 2nd line with Tim Connolly on the third. They get their final top six forward in Lupul and rid themselves of the final 6.6m owed to Stastny in 2013-2014.

Toronto gets their centre for the top line and promotes JVR to top line.

Col top 6 -Duchene, Landeskog, Lupul, OReilly, Hejduk, Jones

TOR top 6- Kessel, Stastny, JVR, Grabovski, Kulemin, MacArthur

================================================== =======================

Been brought up in the thread COL would prefer a D

Phaneuf (6.5M x2)

for

Stastny (6.6M x2)

No incentive for the Avs to do this. I don't think Lupul replicates his success and absolutely want nothing to do with Connelly. If we trade Stastny we would be better suited to trade him for a defenseman.

Well obviously the Leafs would do this, but Statsny is worth more the Lupes unfortunately.

Save cap space, improve winger depth, lose an under performing Stastny making too much money.

Swap Johnny Malkin for a bag of pucks and you got a deal.

You're paying your third line centre 6.6m and you upgrade your top 6. Your also acquiring expiring contracts heading into a pretty deep FA class in 2013.

Not with Lupul's fantastic knack for injuries.

Are you serious? Acquiring a PPG all star for your 3rd line centre is hardly a reason to make sarcastic remarks.

I don't think Avs are in the market for rental wingers.

I edited my response. But the Avs do not need to shed cap. They are happy running as a deep team in the center with a three line attack. Stastny may be over-paid, but he's still valuable.

He is great defensively and a strong play maker. People have to understand that he can only do so much with the wingers he was given. He was our second highest goal-scorer last year too. I think he will have a better season this year as he finally has competent scoring wingers in Jones and Mcginn who fit his play style, are big bodies that can snipe and have great shots.

Connolly is an expiring and could fill in as your 3 line C.

He also plays in the more offensive and open eastern conference on a offensive team. He wouldn't replicate those numbers on the Avs and he probably won't replicate them on the leafs again either.

I like the way you think. Acquire salary through trade and then when the contract expire be happy about the cap space you freed up.

Lupul was a "ppg all star" ONCE in his career.
How many 3rd line centers score ~60 points a season?

So we trade Stastny for an upcoming UFA and a cap dump? Where do I sign?

Or we could just keep running with three good lines. Connelly wouldn't make a good three C. All Avs fans would turn this down. I don't know why you insist on trying to convince us that this deal is good for us.

Avs say no.

Avs need to re-sign Sergei O'Reilly before trading a C anyways.

Lupuls been injured to the point where he might have had to retire, how was he going to be PPG all star then? His value is at a high, Stastnys is not.

Yeah also prob be a lot easier to inquire about ROR (Not saying the leafs have the pieces to get him but with is RFA status prob easier to deal with.)

Doesn't change the fact that he only did it once.

Also, Lupul becomes a UFA in a year. His value is NOT at a high.

This deal is obviously assuming you guys re sign OReilly (see original post of your top 6)
