Downie > 1st Round Pick > Quincey
Outstanding username.

Also... this trade was amazing.

I didn't have a problem with moving Quincey for Downie, though I said they'd have to replace Quincey long-term. They have in a sense with Zanon, though I don't think it's a full replacement for what Quincey could deliver (streakily).

The 1st round pick will probably end up being the best asset involved in the long-term.

I'd much rather have the 2010 version of Quincey than any version of Downie over his career. But man did the 2010 version of Quincey fall off a cliff. Now there's no doubt in my mind I'd take Downie over Quincey at the moment.

Not really possible to tell at this point, IMO. Depends which players show up this season: The quite good Quincey from October-December, or that pile of dung that showed up in Detroit in March? And correspondingly, the Downie that showed up for his first 6-8 games in Colorado, or that psycho who loses his brain sometimes?

In general though, a 2nd pairing defenseman is more valuable to a hockey team than a 2nd line wing. The former are simply harder to find.

I think this question is best asked at the 40 game mark this upcoming season.

...if there is a 40 game mark this upcoming season.

Loved the trade from the moment I heard it, just like the McGinn trade.

Loved the trade. We got much needed help on wing, got rid of a guy who didnt want to be here and a guy who couldnt stay on his feet to save his life. 10 out of 10 times I make that trade

I think the real question of the trade is do you think Barrie/Elliott will be better than Quincey, because that's what it boils down to in the future for us.

or Gaunce. Quincey wasn't a PMD, but he wasn't a SaHD (Stay-at-Home-Defenseman) either. He was closer to a SaHD IMO, and that is why I think it is appropriate to include Gaunce here as well. Barrie/Elliott will probably bring a different kind of game and style to the roster than Quincey. I think Gaunce brings a more similar game to Quincey than the these other two from what I've heard. I haven't seen him play except for the brief stint he had here 10-11.

I think Siemens has the closest playing style to Quincey compared to the rest of our prospects but he is still younger then the other guys so it will probably take him a while to "replace" Quincey. I think our best bet is to have Ryan Wilson "replace" Quincey.

I agree this is how I kinda envision him. A little nastier though probably, and maybe a little less offense, but who knows.

Even though he may still be a little raw for the NHL, I think his game transitions the best to the NHL out of all the Avs prospects. Hopefully he takes bigger strides again this year with his overall game, and then maybe spends some time in the AHL next year.
