Taylor Hall was a Flames fan. Loyalties change instantly when you put on a draft sweater.

I hate Detroit and I will forever.

Players are talking about their idols of the childhood anytime... But I do not care much except when I saw photo of Duchene´s room from years ago.

Even that photo has any impact on what Duchene did last season and what he did this year.

It will be the same with Jones.

There is nothing in the wings organization worth the 1st overall pick, and a collection of lesser pieces isn't realistically going to make anyone want to make the trade.

(Datsyuk & Zetterberg aside of course)

Don't put them aside.
Neither Zetterberg nor Datsyuk are worth the 1st overall.
They have just gotten too old to entertain such a trade.
Datsyuk will only play 1 more year in NA.
Zetterberg will be 33 next season and therefore simply not worth it.

The #1 pick will only be moved for huge overpayment.
So if someone wants to trade us Stamkos or Doughty or sth like that, be my guest. Otherwise you might as well order an Avs #3 if you are a such a huge fan of his

Why do you hate Detroit? It's because of Detroit you guys won 2 cups.We made Roy leave Montreal and come to Colorado, you should love the Wings for this.

Don't care much for comparisons.
He has the potential to be a top 3-5 Dman year in year out.
Best comparison I have heard is probably Pietrangelo with a little higher upside...

The point is that it is nonsensical to trade him for anything short of an offer you can not refuse a la Doughty or Stamkos...

I'd personally be hard pressed to trade the #1 for Doughty straight up. His defense is just too inconsistent for my liking and I personally don't think he's worth the #1. Doughty+ where the + is a grinder like King or 2nd or 3rd rounder? maybe... But not the #1 straight up.

I understand how you feel, but this is the type of stuff Edmonton fans say when they hold the #1 pick.

If Doughty isn't worth the #1 pick, then Duchene isn't worth Mackinnon.

I'd rather take the gamble on Jones than trade the pick for immediate help personally, but I wouldn't make statements like yours either.

I'd take Doughty in a heartbeat for the first. L.A never would. If Jones get to Doughty's level, the Avs are incredibly lucky.

A bit off topic but there was a video clip on Mile High Hockey of Seth and his dad on OTR (I think) where his dad says Seth was a Dallas fan until the 01 cup final when he became an Avs fan so it seems he supported many teams in his youth

Have you watched hockey at all since the team moved to Denver?

It would take a young (22-24 year old) elite player that the Wings just don't have. It would be a giant overpayment on the part of any team that offered that, but you cannot trade the top pick unless it is a ridiculous overpayment.

Edit: I would also consider moving down to Florida or Tampa's spot for the right price (though I doubt they'd have any interest). Still no help for the wings though.
