So Avs get rid of a guy apparently not liked by Sacco and Stars get rid of a guy not liked by the Stars head coach. Seems like both players needed a change of scenery.

If he's referring to the MAIN Trade Forum, well we have no control over that.

So I'm a bit confused
Yeah like he said I meant the home page for hfboards which shows all 30 teams, and shows a single thread per each division. But NBD. And thanks.

You see the last thread that was posted in within the NW Division. But you don't know if it's on the Avs board, the Nucks board, or any other NW board.
OH!! Now I get it....yeah, I could see where that might cause a wee-bit-o confusion!

Quinn has seen both Gaunce and Vincour play quite a bit. Wonder if Avs involved him in the process here.

Little interesting tidbit here, with Gaunce gone, Olver is the only player we have left from the 2008 draft.

Attempted this move on NHL13, Dallas wouldn't even do the deal with a 2nd added, EA really needs to fix the trading in the game

He is defensively sound, solid first pass, can skate and is just a good two-way defenseman. Always liked him since he captained the Majors here, really hope he gets a shot in Big D.
Gaunce sucks at being dman on pro level.

I don't know about that, I've got a feeling he'll be a regular soon enough. I'm not saying top 4 necessarily but at least he'll get a shot at a bottom pairing.

This kinda seems similar to the Boychuk deal. Both guys were better than a lot of the crap that got regular minutes for the AVs but for whatever reason the team just signs vets instead of promoting defensive/physical D from inside the organization. They bring up the puck movers but not the stay at home guys.

Could be similar to the Nigel Williams deal as well. We will see in a couple seasons. At worst I think we traded a bottom pairing guy for a AHL player. At best we got a bottom 6 player for a AHL defensemen. Either way there isn't a huge risk.

Reminded me of the Boychuk deal too. I can see some team, be it the Stars or not, that gives him the time in the AHL and brings him up in a small role, then he'll just be a main stay before anyone knows it.

I like this trade. I didn't have much hope for Gaunce to amount to more than our gaggle of #5-6 defensemen.

I think there's that and also the fact that Gaunce would need to battle with Barrie, Elliott and Siemens for a spot in a lineup that already has EJ and Hejda along with decent bottom pairing guys like Wilson and O'Brien. Just no room for him.

As far as depth on RW, who do we have? Luke Walker? Garrett Meurs? We're pretty thin on the right side for a team expected to part with Kobasew, perhaps maybe even David Jones and will likely have Hejuk retiring as well.

Gaunce may end up as a bottom pairing d-man in Dallas but he'll certainly need to improve his foot speed.

Why does every one of his tweets have to be snarky? Obviously he wasn't good enough to break into our "high powered d". Really wish someone else covered the Avs.
