Seeing as it's been almost 2 years since he was traded to the Avs, I'm curious to see how Av's fans value him. Is his value higher or lower now as compared to when they traded for him? What would fans want in return for him today?
I can't imagine a trade that gets him out of colorado that any team would offer. It'd basically take a better young defensemen coming back, which makes no sense from the other team's perspective. He's our only defenseman who should even be in a team's top 3, our only offensively capable dman, and by far our best defensive dman. Plus the kid is young, signed to a great contract and is awesome off the ice. I don't know which of him, Landy, and Varly have the most value to the avs right now, but there's not a realistic trade out there for any of them.
Actually his value is whatever the hell the teams involved in a trade for him would see his value as, and EJ's value is huge to the Avs, and since they have to be one of the teams involved in an EJ trade his value is pretty damn high.
