According to some of the posters on the NYI board, the inconsistent 24 yr old is expendable because Anders Lee is tearing it up at Notre Dame, Petrov is developing well in the KHL, Strome who had a quiet NYI training camp is having a great junior season and Nino/Nelson had strong first half seasons in the AHL.

Gotta shake my head because only 1 of those youngsters has sniffed the nhl at this point and the one who has played in the NHL, Nino, had an awful rookie seaspon.

Nevermind, it wasn't really a three way trade.

I think Colorado should add to their defense, not take away from it. Their blueline is one of the worst in the league.

Yeah, but they can afford to drop one of their many 5-6 dmen and with O'Reilly, Landeskog, and Downie out they need some forward depth, with 8 defensemen on the roster they have the room to move one

Assuming they weren't division rivals, a guy like Devon Setoguchi would be a nice fit.
Sad thing is we had Mueller and Flash, both we could've resigned and we wouldn't have any problem on the wings.

Unrealistic. You can't keep that many skill guys.

And in a few years EDM will be saying, "What just happened???", as they lose their players due to a little thing called the salary cap.

Or they will have a defense made up of guys the likes of O'Byrne, O'Brien, Zannon at best.

Ryan Wilson is out indefinitely with a foot injury, so it's unlikely Avs will entertain the idea of trading any defensemen.

EJ is probably an untouchable, but the Avs should really look hard against trading Hejda... he's very good value for how much he's worth. What he doesn't have is a good defense man to play with. After EJ/Hejda, the Avs have a whole lot of fringe/depth defenseman.

I'd love to be able to shift off guys like SOB/Zanon... because under Zanon/SOB/Hunwick, we have nearly 6M invested in 1 player (and 2 players who should be healthy scratches).

They might get traded closer to the deadline teams shore up D depth.

I might look at a deal around Siemens and Eller.

Would be very surprised if Siemens is remotely available.
