are the Avs anticipating losing Varlamov for good and trying to clear cap space for another goalie, maybe?

I love Max Talbot. Downie probably wanted too much money. It's a downgrade offensively but Talbot brings a ton to the defensive side with shot blocking and PK.

Of course they can. What's their proven track record? One month?

The Avs have like 12 million in cap space, the last thing they need is more.

‏@mirtle29s
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."
Followed by a mumbled "he's not near as good as Downie, but you didn't hear that from me".....

I guess this is just a precursor to them trading for Ryan Miller.

Downie is a Flyer if I ever saw one. Kinda mad that they traded him to that team in particular.

TIME TO COME HOME STEVE!!!

Great deal for Philly. Philly will re-sign him or trade him at the deadline if they are still struggling. Surprised by this deal for sure.

Yeah I thought Downie was a good fit on the team. Maybe Roy didn't like him.

Happy for Max though. I would be rather be in Colorado than Philly at the moment.

This is a character/leadership/defense/PK trade for the Avs. I'm also betting that Roy was probably butting heads with Downie.

But on paper, this is a great deal for the Flyers, and a very, very questionable move for the Avs.

The Avs are clearly drunk with power.

Downie is awesome. Pure heart, viciously protective of his teammates and decent hands. Flyers clearly got the better player here.

Weird l, this seems more like an HF proposal that would get hosed and locked in minutes, than an actual trade
