(Thx for the rundown posts btw)

Edit: Has anyone heard any rumors about Kulikov's contract demands? I would imagine something along the lines of EJ's contract would be fair.
On the Florida board I saw speculation that Tallon was offering something like a 3x3 and Kulikov was looking for a 4x4.

I'm in for a ROR for Kulikov deal because it makes sense for both teams, and because it gets ROR out of the conference. If the Avs end up dealing ROR, it better be to an Eastern team.
Why the **** was I thinking he's a lefty? I guess probably cause Campbell, Garrison and Kuli were all lefties I forgot the Gudbrandson wasn't one to.

Either way if we have to trade Ryan I'd be totally down with Ryan+ for Kulikov and Matthias.

No way to Connolly.

What about Wade Redden, once he gets bought out by NYR? Wouldn't be a bad depth guy, if his contract is in the right ballpark.

Regardless of the ROR situation, please don't trade the first this year Sherman

Oh and here is the newest plan in the Tank for Seth-section provided by our friends over at the Leafs board:

Gardiner + Grabovski + MacArthur + 2nd for Duchene + O'Reilly

I think they put a well thought proposal on the table right here.

If we do this trade I can't see us not getting Savior Seth

I wouldn't mind Redden on the 3rd pairing.

And Gomez on the 4th line, replacing Olver, who in turn replaces McLeod.

I don't see the point when we already have a glut of mediocre defensmen to sit every game.

I actually wouldn't mind Connolly to replace O'Reilly this year.

Wouldn't want Redden. He was very underwhelming in the NHL years ago. I think he's just taking too much punishment trying to make plays. It worked until he was 30 years old but it takes a toll on the body.

TFP just posted that Kulikov is believed to be looking for a long term deal around 3M per.

I don't know why these agents want young players on long term deals. If they get better, they will earn better contracts.

I think in O'Reilly's case I think they want a richer long term deal to assure O'Reilly is being used to provide offense with the Avs. If he signs a bridge deal and Avs use him more as a defensive guy, he'll have a hard time getting a good contract next time around.

I can understand that view when Avs have Stastny and Duchene on the team.

I would definitely take Gomez and/or Redden on a cheap, one year deal. What's to lose?

Santorelli is on waivers. Maybe an insurance 4th line center just in case Olver or Mitchell goes down?

Games.

There's no point in taking either of those guys, IMO. Who knows what Redden has left? He's been buried in the AHL for 2 years, and was terrible for at least 2 years before that. Similarly, Gomez hasn't been close to an impact player for 3 years now.

It's 2013, not 2007.

If O'reilly isn't coming back they need to start figuring out some stopgap solution to the 3rd line center issue unless they want to lose a lot of games and completely waste Downie and Hejduk.
