Way to make a post that says absolutely nothing! Have you considered a career in marketing Proactive?

He's not awful, but Siemens is staying put.

Do they need to be signed beyond this season, be a RFA or is a UFA alright? And what specifically classifies a top 4 defenseman to you; TOI, points, what?

I mean John-Michael Liles is a top 4 defenseman for Carolina, but wasn't able to sniff the lineup in Toronto. Or Kris Russell is a top 4 defenseman for Calgary, but was a bottom pairing guy in St. Louis. Conversely, Simon Despres would probably be a #4 on a few NHL teams, but he's played most of the year in the AHL for Pittsburgh. Just trying to figure out what you guys are really looking for.
A 2 way or defensive Dman who can eat up minutes and play on the 2nd pairing. Also no one over 30. Which makes a trade unlikely. Especially now that Tangs is out for the season.

However specifically who the player is will determine the Value.

Maybe overrated and overpaid is more accurate. The guy isn't worth the roster spot he would take up and I wouldn't want him on the Avs.

There is a reason he is on the Flames and is no longer on the Bruins or the Caps(when they were good) because he isn't good enough for a playoff contending team.

Letang is out for the season, Martian is injured from Olympics, rumors that Orpic(think its him) might not resign, same with Niskanen.

So I dont see them moving him. Also Despes probably isnt the type of Dman the Avs are looking for.
