Stastny + for Vanek is what I would like to see.

Seems like Buffalo wants a culture change, Miller and Vanek could be getting moved.

Vanek - Duchene - Parenteau would be ...

As long as the plus isn't something really major I would be game for that.

Would we really need to add? A pending UFA for a pending UFA, both on a crappy contract. We need a winger. They need a center.

I have a question. I understand the the 14 teams who do not make the playoffs have an opportunity at the first overall pick. Theoretically, let's say that Nashville gets the first overall pick. Does that mean that Florida automatically picks 2nd and then it goes in order in terms of the standings? Or is there a lottery for every pick? Thanks in advance!

It would be hilarious, if the Wings bought out Quincey this summer, and then the Avs went and signed him.


Obviously incredibly unlikely given Quincey's comments about us after he left. But it would be damn funny if we ended up ultimately getting Downie for nothing.

I doubt Avs would want him back.

I think you have to remove Jones due to cap issues. Sabres doesn't have alot of room.

Stastny, Jones for Vanek, Stafford, 6th

Well, some Wings fans want that to happen but more likely buyout candidates are Samuelsson and Colaiacovo. And maybe even neither of them gets bought out, woudln't be surprised.

That's bad for Sabres.

28 teams could beat that offer.

brought this up in the draft forum, but since it involves trades too i thought I'd throw this here too:

How crazy would this be:

Colorado Trades:

F Paul Stastny
D Stefan Elliot
2013 2nd round pick (really early pick, might as well be late first)
F Sgarbossa (ahl all star)

for

FLA 1st Overall Pick

THEN

Colorado trades:

Remainder of 2013 draft (3rd round and on)
2014 1st Round Pick
Jamie McGinn

for

TB 3rd Overall Pick:

Thus the Colorado Avalanche Draft:

1st Jones
2nd Mackinnon
3rd Drouin

That **** cray

No. Just no. None of those teams do that.

It's possible given the right way of going about it:


Burke had to get two consecutive picks, convince the Sedins that Vancouver was a great place to play, and ensure that the Thrashers selected Patrick *cough*BUST!*cough* Stefan with the first overall pick.

It took just the right combination of bully tactics, bluffing, tact, and diplomacy for Burke to put all of the pieces together.


1. The wheeling and dealing began when Vancouver sent defenseman Bryan McCabe and a 2000 first-round pick to the Chicago Blackhawks (which became Pavel Vorobiev, who did next to nothing) for the fourth overall pick (which landed with the Rangers and became Brendl)

2. Brian Burke then sent the No. 4 selection and a pair of third-round picks to the Tampa Bay Lightning for the top overall pick.

3. Next, Vancouver sent the top pick to the expansion Atlanta Thrashers for the No. 2 selection and a conditional 2000 third-rounder. The deal was that the Thrashers would take Stefan, leaving the Canucks to take the Sedins in sequential order.

If we don't win the lottery I'd be cool with trading for the other one of mac/drouin, though it would probably be way too expensive

Draft pick value has increased and no GM wants to be the one to pass on the next elite player. It would never work, especially the TBL one.

Actually, we could hope that Florida (Or the Avs) win the lottery. Then trade up to take Jones, and then trade EJ to Tampa for #3 and take Drouin.

Solves the top winger issue, and is a gamble on IF Jones turns out to be better than EJ.

I doubt Stastny gets us anywhere close to a top 3 pick, O'Reilly might have but that obviously can't happen.

I'm not sure I'd be comfortable with trading EJ without being able to pick Jones.

All in all we're better off just trying to trade up in order to pick Jones, or simply taking which ever one of Drouin/Mack we're higher on.


Florida needs offense, Colorado needs defense, Tampa needs defense, Nashville needs offense, Carolina needs defense.

These trade up/trade down proposals on every board on here are hilarious now. Cause NONE will come true.
