Maybe GM's value 2015 3rds more than 2014 2nds.

Isn't Burke the same guy that screwed up the Kessel trade for Toronto's first round pick that turned out to be Seguin?

I really want to hear Burke's sales pitch.

He's really good at trading.

Dammit Burke. Maybe we owed them from the Tanguay/Sarich trade, I dunno.

I'm not sure why they don't just use Aittokallio if Giggy has injury issues, Aittokallio's a great prospect and not far from Berra.

Meh, we got a top 5 winger in the game.

Price was steep, but worth it.

Kessel = Toronto's offense.

WTh!

Could have gotten Legwand or even Gaborik for a 2nd and we spend it on freaking Retto Berra?

After the Downie trade and this one, I'm kinda doubting they know what the hell they're doing.

Colorado watches half the leagues goalies change teams and then decides to throw a second rounder at Berra?

Ugh. Not again.

Kessel runs Toronto's offense on ES and PP. Elite playmaker and scorer.

I don't think you will find anyone in Toronto that is unhappy with the deal, especially now that Seguin isn't even in the division.

I'm going to definitely say this is the strangest valuation of a player I've ever seen.

Not an ounce of data to support anything more than him being the most below average to average player ever.

You mean the one where they greatly improved the team?

I don't think we're winning because of the Tanguay trade who's been injured all season long and Sarich who's doing nothing special out there, nor do I think Talbot is making the difference to make us win. In fact we were better with Downie on the roster in my opinion, even if I don't really mind that trade and got over it a while ago.

Still, don't show me our record as proof that they know how to make trades, because that's definetly not the reason why our team is where it is. Sherman's deals made us good with EJ, Varly, McPing, etc...

Roy is great as a coach, not sure about the rest.

I agree this one is awful. But Talbot for Downie was very good for us.

Right because Colorado is just oozing with well thought out decisions..

They didn't do a single thing last year and the one time Sakic did act, he brought in Parenteau which is apparently going poorly? (Yes I know he wasn't Pres yet, but I remember him being directly involved)

I've said before I'll take their roster going forward over anyone in the league not name Pittsburgh, but this is purely about talent starting to come together not a perfect plan made by management.

Berra for a 2nd is one of the worst trades I've seen. Hilariously awful and you know it, but in the end who cares? 2nd round picks are generally a dime a dozen and the Avs are winning. I just hope that's not the mentality that Roy and Sakic take going forward.

The Downie trade? Yeah, the Avs won that one, or at least it's equal.

-Downie is an impending UFA, Talbot is on a reasonable deal.
-Talbot is outscoring Downie
-Downie is more physical and an agitator, but Talbot is better defensively and a better pker.


This trade though..terrible from a first glance. Wait and see I guess. Maybe Roy and Allaire see something special in Berra.
