Montreal/Colorado

To Montreal:
Cody McLeod
Shane O'Brien

To Colorado:
Yannick Weber
Colby Armstrong
3rd round pick


Good or bad? Montreal adds size on the 4th line and a big defenseman that can play a shutdown role on the bottom pairing. Colorado doesnt lose anything major and gains a mid pick, young offensive D-man with potential and a winger that can play on the 3rd or 4th line.

Why do we do this? Just don't see anything worth losing McLeod over.

I'd be interested in O'Brien alone.

Seems like someone MB would look at. Wants to get big and tougher. He also is keen on not taking UFAs, O'Brien with more years could be something MB would want.

No reason for the Avs to do this. Obrien is actually playing pretty good for the Avs, at least compared to Zanon, Hunwick, and Obyrne.

And McCleod is having a very good year, possibly his best with the Avs.


Just don't see any reason for the Avs to make this deal.

Is McCleod a real heavyweight?, is he a liability on the ice?, What would it take for Montreal to get him? And what about Bordeleau?

Lol so you create the proposal, then say its a bad trade for the Avs?

As others have stated, the Avs don't do this. There is no need for Colby Armstrong, and we have two offensive defenseman in the system who have NHL experience, we don't need Yannick Weber. The 3rd isn't that enticing when its near the 80-90 range rather than the 61-70 range

No, but he can hold his own. No, he's a great 4th liner. AFAIK Colorado wants to keep him, so overpayment. Bordeleau doesn't have much value, so Colorado will probably keep him.

I meant because of the comments and reactions by Avs fans. I obviously dont think its a bad proposal if I proposed it.

Im sure Weber can be better than O'Byrne, Zanon and at this point, Elliot. The only reason he isnt playing in Montreal is because they are already small as it is with Diaz, Bouillon and Markov. Armstrong can replace McLeod to a certain extent. Not as tough but can play a solid 4th line game. The 3rd is always good to have. May not be the highest pick but especially this year, take all the picks you can get.

Just nothing worth moving our depth over in that offer. No need to bring in Weber, he shouldn't have a roster spot here either, but sadly our team feels the need to bury our young defenders and let terrible vets get roster spots.

McLeod has been a good PKer for us this year, good with the kids, goes through a wall for his teammates and chipped in a bit offensively. O'Brien could be a workable third pairing guy in the future and seems to be good for the locker room.

It's just a case where the guys don't have enough value to garner a big asset and we have no reason to lose them for fair value right now.

Unless Weber is going to magically turn this powerplay into the best one in the league, then there is no point in making this deal because McLeod is better than Armstrong and O'Brien has been the best of the fatal four. Now, if you're willing to remove O'Brien and take both Matt Hunwick and Greg Zanon than I will gladly part with Cody McLeod lol, you can even remove the 3rd

SOLD!

And for McLeod, I'd offer White + 3rd or just MTL 2nd straight up. He would work well in MTL. (BTW, I've thought he was awesome since he threw that octopus back at the fans in the playoffs years ago...just too funny)

Counter. McLeod and sob for a 2nd & 3rd. Avs don't need plugs for players. Picks will do though

We have our own Mcloed in Prust, we could badly use Bordeleau though.

This is true, I'd acquire Bordeleau for a 3rd just to play him on the 4rth line vs Toronto and Bruins and maybe both if we play them in the playoffs. He'd be very useful, Boston will be playing like ballerina's again(like they play vs Toronto). And Bordeleau can take care of Orr/Mclaren as Prust is fighting way out of his weight class. But I've posted a thread about this before, Avalanche fans really like Bordeleau and want to keep him.

I wouldn't offer more than a 5th, if anything at all. Especially if he is only there to play 5mins a game against only certain teams. At least with McLeod he can play 10 mins a game in any situation and offer some grit and toughness without being a defensive liability. Even if McLeod is a similar style to Prust...how is that a bad thing?

I love Prust, but I don't want him to fight Fraser, Finley and Lucic again.

[EDIT]: If Mike Brown got a 4th round pick and Kassian got a 6th round pick. I'm guessing you're right and a 5th would do, but a 5th won't do with the fans. Maybe the GM.

What in the world do we want with either of Yannick Weber or Colby Armstrong?

As a fan of both I can safely say that Armstrong sucks, McLeod is better than he is at pretty much everything, you can think of Cody as a poor mans Brandon Prust on a pretty good contract. I can't see Colorado moving him. As for SoB, he's the only bottom pairing defenseman on the Avs I wouldn't mind keeping, plus he and MTL night life are a terrible fit. There's no deal to be made here.
