Definitely like Downie, but would like to know what we gave up for him...

Isn't he an agitator masquerading as a top line winger with Stamkos?
He has a nice skillset but isn't the top line scorer I'd hope for.

Still, if the only price is Quincey and a later type pick I'm ok with it.

I'm guessing prospects are part of it. Hopefully not Barrie or Ellie

Think he god be a good fit but I'm scared of Sherm's negotiating skills. I hope we find the return soon, and it doesn't make us cringe.

I find it funny that we went from "asking about JVR" to Downie. Couldn't be more opposite players.

See, my reaction as well. Sherman freaks me out whenever he makes a trade. Will be refreshing all NHL-related sites until we find out.

Downie played great with Duchene at the world champions.

The higher the skillset, the higher the price. We're not getting that top line scorer unless we break the bank on Parise (assuming he's available) or give up a core piece.

I'm cautiously optimistic Sherman didn't overpay here...but we'll see.

Interesting... not sure what to think yet.

Like Downie, didn't like Quincey, but not sure they're worth the same.

Same, I thought Quincey had more value (or the Avs could have got more for him). I would have preferred a pick thrown in.

Eh. I like the Downie pickup but Quincey seems like overpayment. Of course, his pending contract could have played a role.
