While Bogo is a player I truly covet, ROR is not going to work. Value isn't there.

BUT.

Bogosian worth Duchene? Good one lol

Bogo for OReilly = Chevy getting run out of town. Buff for OReilly is a possibility as early as trade deadline this yr depending on how standings look. From my Jets perspective. Some Jets fans would want more. And I'm sure Avs have their share of vocal Buff haters like every other fanbase.
Wait, O'Reilly+ for BIG Buff?

Not about him being worth Duchene. He plays a pivotal role on the Jets and is still on the upward trend so him for Duchene isn't worth it for the Jets.

At the of annoying all Avs fans:

You know, your team had a chance to draft a young future #1 D. They chose not to, and I totally get that decision and I'm not saying they were wrong, but you need to understand that young NHL top pairing dmen are a pretty hard to come by thing, and when teams have them, they don't deal them. (One exception being Erik Johnson).

I'm not saying it's going to be impossible for the Avs to make a deal for one, but if it was really that important, there was one staring at you in the face and you passed it by.

Col drafted the BEST player, thats what the smart teams do. The Jets will get the opportunity to see exactly why Mac was drafted 1st overall.

There are a few intangibles with Bogo for Jets fans. When we first got an NHL team back there was a lot of talk by various "talking heads" that players wouldn't want to come to Winnipeg since it was a small Canadian city with cold winters. To have one of our young stars embrace the city the way he has went a long way to elevate him to fan favorite. This is combined with the "bust" label he came to Winnipeg with. Before Jets fans saw him play he was being labeled as a bust. What we witnessed instead was the dramatic growth of a top tier d-man with a full set of tools. More than any player he belongs to us. We love our small town, cowboy boot wearing, hunting and fishing American. And since none of us here in make believe land can actually make or influence a real trade, there is no damage over valuing our favorite player. So

I'm just saying Id do a trade based around Buff and OReilly. Definitely not around Bogo. I know some jets fans would want add from Avs. I personally am too ignorant to say but am open to adding to Buff depending on what i see.

Just remember. Very few d men in the league have put up the numbers Buff has over past 3 seasons. He's top 3 in many offensive categories. And he ain't half as defensively bad or fat as the Hf Boards LOLZ teenagers make him out to be.

If Avs management gets Bogo for ROR the city if Denver throws them a parade. And checks extradition treaties between Colorado and Manitoba for theft related crimes.

No as you can see on the quote I posted, I wrote Bogo and wanted to write Buff.
I would add to ROR for Bogo. Not a ton but still...

Buff on the other hand is a total no go for ROR.

I seen plenty of Winnipeg fans say over the last couple years that Enstrom has to cover Buffs ass defensively quite a bit. Don't know about this last season, but there is definitely a history there.

On another note, why did Bogo only play 33 games? It seems like hes been injured for short periods almost every season besides 09-10.

That's not why, but I'm not that interested in O'Reilly for Bogo personally. We over paid for one defender that had been in the league less time than Bogo, shown more, and it bit us in the ass.

I'm not sure either of EJ or Bogosian have a significant amount more to show us than they already are personally.

It's just my opinion, on top of the fact that I'd rather the guy we acquire actually be left handed to complete our top pairing.

He had wrist surgery during the lockout and missed the opening portion of the season.

I think we are just starting see Bogo's jump forward. He just turned 23 this week, and playing behind Enstrom and Buff he has been asked to be the shut down guy, but his offensive potential has barely been touched to this point.

Not really sure what the point of saying this was, but we are FULLY aware that a young #1 Dman is worth a whole heck of a lot. Are you trying to say we don't think so?

I'm just so confused about what annoyed you in this thread enough for you to make such a sweeping and generalizing (and abhorrently incorrect) statement about us (i.e. Avs fans)


Maybe you should just get rid of your condescending tone

You'll see plenty of him this year. You can judge for yourself soon. I think you'll find that he's much better than you think he is.

You're putting words into my mouth. I know Byfuglien is a good player and I never said he wasn't.

Do you actually know what weight he's at right now? That's all I was asking. Jeez

No we don't. Until he checks in to training camp we likely won't know. There was an article recently that I do not have a link for that said he was training hard this off season though.

Buff will never be completely trimmed down and chiseled, but that's what makes him so effective and unique. The reports of being 300 lbs were complete false. Rumors by a local tabloid journalist.

Buff is effective because of his skating, size, strength and ability to create offense every time he has the puck on his stick.


As for the Enstrom thing, they were paired together in Atlanta because Buff's defensive game was a little rough, but he has made great strides in the past two season. The real problem is the JETS have a serious lack at LD and with all the minutes Buff plays, he and Enstrom are the top pairing.

It would be great if Bogo could transition to the left side, but that remains to be seen. We also have Trouba, Postma and Redmond who are righties.

Sorry. My point was that the weight speculation is getting really old already and you phrased the question in the context of 'how fat is he?'. None of us know what he weighs. One blogger postulates that he weighs 300 pounds and then we hear reports from "insiders" that he's got a big chip on his shoulder and is working out like a madman this summer. Who knows what the truth is, but like I said, you'll find out for yourself soon enough.

ROR's contract is up at the end of the year and he has to be qualified at $6.5M

This is a scary concept...

He doesn't HAVE to. And we won't be giving him a contract for 6.5. That's a joke.

Either he'll get traded on that RFA deal and someone else will pick up the tab, or we'll extend him for 4-5 years at $5m-$5.5m per.

In NO universe will the Avs be paying ROR $6.5m, and I don't think any other team in the league (other than, of course, the Calgary Flames) would pay him $6.5m per year.

Why on earth would you Avs fans trade O'Reilly for Bogosian? Unless you've got some other trade where either Johnson/Barrie/Elliott are moving for a left-handed defenseman or Stastny is moving for one, I don't make this trade. And besides, I don't think Bogosian is better than Johnson. Not saying that it is in his control, but Bogosian has the luxury of playing alongside a defense corps that includes Tobias Enstrom, Dustin Byfuglien, and Ron Hainsey. It doesn't exactly scream greatest defense in the league, but it dwarfs the Avs' Jan Hejda, Ryan Wilson, and Matt Hunwick.

Not a knock on Bogosian, I like the way he plays, especially his physicality. However, if ANYONE on Colorado is getting traded, it is for one thing and one thing only: A left-handed defenseman who can play with Erik Johnson. Zach Bogosian does not fill that need (I wouldn't want to see two right-handed guys play together, personal preference)

If you don't qualify him, he walks as a free agent. What is his incentive to sign for less if he has money sitting on the table? He obviously cares about the money as witnessed by last season and there are most definitely teams who will use the compliance buyout to free up money and offer the 6.5 mil if you don't.

They can take him to arbitration and get that down to 5.525 which is reasonable IMO. Hopefully he signs long term for 5M, but he hasn't earned 6.5M yet.

(Watch him put up 70+ points now...)

There were rumors of him hitting 300 at the end of the season but those were not proven and I have my doubts. we have heard he is doing really well weight wise this summer and is working our hard but I will wait to see at camp when he shows up.

As a jets season ticket holder I am looking forward to that. I would have taken him 1st overall in a heart beat.......I am not a fan of taking D men 1st overall but that's just me.
