With the rookie McGinn playing well and Hartnell coming back one of the 2 3rd liners is expendable. Let's hope we don't give them away like we did with other role players.
You want Knuble?

Hamilton or bust!

You don't want Fedotenko near your top nine in a scoring role. He just doesn't have that much anymore. Knuble could be decent as long as he's only asked to win board battles and get to the net.

We don't need another center.

Need defense not forwards. ALSO, Oreilly has NOT proven himself , max goals ever scored is 18.

And also, in terms of young forwards with promising upside, we have Couts Schenn Voracek Simmonds. How many of those exactly do we need?

One could also say the Avs aren't a very good organization anymore, but O'Reilly's asking price is insane.

Everyone on this board is absolutely infatuated with Couturier's defense, yet, O'Reilly is better defensively, and is still really young (albeit a few years older than Couts). Goal scoring isn't everything in a center.

Although he's a few inches smaller and will cost a few million more.

Have Laughton and Cousins coming up behind Couterior. Do not want another Centre. If Couterior is traded it would be for a Defenseman.

Dreger on Insider Trading said that San Jose were listening to offers for their players. He threw Dan Boyle's name out there. Said the Sharks would want a forward going back to them. He also actually threw out Jumbo Joe's name, but he even said he doesn't see that happening.

Also still think we should make one of these rumor threads a "all rumors/speculation" type threads that most other boards have.

His father sends an email to the Denver Post with permission to print it.

Looks like I was on to something

Boston seems interested, came out to our games twice, but who are they watching and what would we want from them??

Don't want O'Reilly, just seems like either he or his father would be a head case if something didn't go their way and besides we need stud defensemen than we do a centermen, lets give Couturier a chance to develop and see how he does for a year or so before we decide to start trading him.
