Hell, if that's all the Avs have to give up they better get on the phone NOW. My only fear is that it would cost a halfway decent prospect like it did O'Byrne.

No one signed Sykora.

I think he'd fit quite well here.

Unfortunately Avs management prefer saving money by bringing up contracted AHL players instead of going for outside help.

Honestly, if a old and broken down Petr Sykora a better option than some of the kids at Lake Erie, we have ourselves a serious problem on the farm.

Sykora would likely cost under $1 million dollars, I doubt the Avs have a problem paying him that.

Which is exactly what I hope they do in this case.

This Avs team wasn't likely to make the playoffs in any case, and without O'R there was almost zero chance, IMO. If Landeskog is out for an extended period of time, 'almost zero chance' goes to 'zero chance'. Might as well see what a few of those Lake Erie guys have in them, rather than bringing on Kobasew version II.

This.

Sykora isn't the answer, IMO.

problem is it seems were having a hard time identifying talent in our own system, surely sgarbossa is first to come up, but look at the way aggozino has been playing, looks contract worthy to me, i'd rather call him up than connolly if it comes to it at the current time.

IMO, the larger problem is the coaching staff maximizing said talent, but that's off topic.

Replacing Downie with someone like Sykora might have made sense if the Avs had all of the other necessary pieces in place to make a possible playoff run. If they are close to signing O'R and Landeskog's injury doesn't seem serious, then perhaps they could do such a thing. Without either of them for an extended period (let alone both of them), why move assets?

Agreed/Agreed

Let the season unfold and see what happens.

I don't think Agozzino would be effective at the NHL level. He just doesn't have the size/strength from what I've seen.

Honestly I don't care. Sign Campoli. Trade for Yannick Weber. And of course, SIGN O'REILLY. NOW. But do SOMETHING for Christ's sake.

Don't just sit there and accept this.

good post, puts thing's in a bit different perspective for me.

you never know, could be a cory conacher 2.0, but that's also wishful thinking, when i saw he was invited to lake erie camp few months back, no way did i think he would be a main cog to that team.

I'd like to see us acquire Tedenby and give him a shot in the top 6. Judging by the Devils fans, he's not a valuable commodity anymore and we may be able to get him at a reasonable price.

With Downie out, Hejduk spent and Landeskog possibly out for awhile, we could use the reinforcements and I have a good feeling about him from the times I've watched him. He's like a more skilled Olver with less agitation and better hands.

I've always liked him, he could be a good fit. I would trade a guy like Hunwick for him.

*I realize Hunwick has played ok/good so far this year but apart from his speed, he brings very little to this team. The Avs would be better off putting Barrie in the lineup and letting him make his share of mistakes because at least he can probably create some offense out there.

They don't need defenders. It'd have to be a prospect, pick or forward.

I'd move Kobasew if they wanted NHL depth for Tedenby, a mid round pick (4th?) or a project prospect like Luke Walker (if he were healthy) judging by what they needed.

I'm not sure any of them are enough value.

Hope they give him a fair chance. Hope they give Barrie one too, while they are at it.

Barrie and Sgarbossa can run a PP better than most of the guys we have on the team.

I like how Sacco gives Barrie two games despite looking like crap, but sends Malone down right off the bat. I thought Malone put himself in a lot of good positions to make something happen offensively, but just let the nerves get the best of him. Didn't think he hurt the team much, and would have liked to see him get another game after the nerves settled down.

I don't think it has do with disliking what Malone did yesterday but more because we need offense while Landy, RoR and Downie are out. I think Malone did pretty well also and I think he will get another chance this year.

Agreed, I thought Malone was solid for a 4th line guy in his 10th NHL game. That said, the roster move may have to do with the number of players we're carrying right now, I do not believe Landy is on the IR list.
