"Trade Pickard".
This must be an idea for post-ExDraft, right?
I mean, if we trade him now, don't we have to expose Varly?

Expose him, I don't think Vegas takes him, trade him after, I think he's done here and could be seen to have potential elsewhere

Then again if Vegas doesn't take him for free my Philly proposal is pretty optimistic. I just think Philly could be interested since they're not bringing back Mason and Neuvirth is hit or miss.

1st round selection (4) - Patrick (predicting Makar and Heiskanen to be gone, we pick whichever is left of Patrick or Hischier)
2nd round selection (32) - Michael DiPietro (predicting Pickard to be taken in expansion draft and us just missing on good defenders with this pick and going with the goalie)
Duchene Trade return - Barzal, Isles 1st, and Pulock (alternatively CDH instead of Pulock, which is probably what Sakic wants)
Biggest UFA signing - Kulikov, maybe not even that (I buy the "younger and faster" mantra, we'll have to sign some short contracts to fill our roster though, it won't be all prospects)
Other trade predictions - I think they'll try hard to move Soderberg but not sure if anyone's gonna bite. If he's moved, we won't give picks to another team for them to take him, UNLESS it's in the form of paying VGK to take Soderberg over Pickard.
If Barrie or Landy gets moved, I think we'll all be disappointed with the return. Probably pieces like Eberle or Vatanen/Maatta coming back our way.

Sakic will trade Duchene for a return that most Avs fans deem acceptable.

This is my biggest fear. I'm scared Sakic is going to trade him for a defenseman straight up just because the media and casual fans constantly **** and moan about the Avs D.

I fear a Duchene for Hamonic trade the most.

Even if they wanted to flip Hamonic, where would he fit? EDM?

I think the Avs will be more aggressive than we think in free agency/trading.

Colorado has $23 million in cap space. They will likely gain more (when) Matt Duchene's $6 million is traded for player(s) who likely have a lower cap hit. However, I think this will balance out due to the re-signings of Andrighetto, Nieto, and Zadorov.

With roughly $20-22 million in cap space, and no one left to re-sign, I could see the Avs trying to entice a big fish - like Kevin Shattenkirk (though I think he's going to NYR for sure). I still think the Avs will kick the tires.

Sakic said on Denver radio (Altitude 950) about a month ago that the Avs would be quiet in free agency. I would expect some trades once the expansion draft plays out.

Avs offseason Predictions:

Duchene + Bigras - Hanifin + 12OA

1st round selection (4) - Vilardi (I do not think Heiskanen makes it to us)
1st round selection (12) - Foote (because you know they wont be able to pass up the name)
2nd round selection (32) - Lind (just a gut feeling)
Biggest UFA signing - Jordan Weal (seriously, nothing major I am hoping)
Other trade predictions - Barrie for Galchenyuk, just to **** of Habs fans

Caveat: If Heiskanen does make it to us, and/or they go with Makar, then the 12 pick becomes a W: Pettersen if there, or Tolvanen/Suzuki. And 32 becomes maybe Comtois or Jokiharju.

I doubt we are on his trade list, but I would much prefer the Avs to use their cap space target a guy like Phaneuf and pick up some extra assets for the favor. Though that ship may have sailed with expansion today.

I have been saying this for a while now though.. once the chips fall after expansion, I would look to do a cap space trade rather than break the bank in free agency with a poor class. Better to save that money and spend big in the years to come.
