It has to be contract related. A player with Downie's ability gets paid in free agency.

Still don't like it.

Downie was my favorite player. I hate this deal as an Avs fan. There has to be more to it.

Tough day to be an Avs fan, what's next? Duchene quitting hockey?

lol This makes absolutely no sense for the Avs. There has to be more coming back than just Talbot.

What the hell? Why would Colorado do that?

Even if they knew Downie wasn't going to resign why wouldn't they ride out the next few months and ship him out at the deadline? Even if he starts playing awful there's no way the return can get much worse than just straight up Talbot...

I don't get it.

Nothing against you Boulder, but this is one of my pet peeves, when people substitute unfamiliar nicknames for players it all stems from when I was trying to do the lineups thread a few years ago and floating from board to board and going "Okay, who is Gator? "

As a one-for-one this is awful for the Avs. Wonder if there is more to this/something else in the works.

This makes tsn's quiz last night make more sense now! They were talking about top lines in the league and I think mackenzie was saying he was going to say duchene, reilly and downie, but then downie got moved off the top line and parenteau was there at practice yesterday.

The Wings still lost that trade. . Though you could argue that Quincey > Talbot

This makes no sense for avs, but it's a good trade for Philly.

Oh dear. Is he still a lunatic on the ice Avs fans? I know he had a questionable hit earlier in the season, but I thought it was clean. I hate this POS and although he's better than Max I still don't know how I feel about it.

Jeez guys, just relax.

Sakic and Roy cannot be questioned with what they've done thus far. You have to trust they're doing what is best for the team.

Joe Sakic on Downie for Talbot trade with Flyers: "Maxime is a veteran forward who has won a Stanley Cup and has a lot of NHL experience."

I bet Homer will include a high pick! It will be a 2nd and he will resign Downie on a high contract... It will get ugly
