Throw in Faulk skinner and lindholm. Hit yes on the Xbox controller and it's a deal.

Wow, you really think so? I'm the probably the biggest Duchene fan on these boards and also a huge Landy fan and even I don't think that's an even trade. Franchise-cornerstone defensemen are the most sought-after commodity in professional hockey, and P.K. is one of the elites of the league. Getting him in exchange for Shea Weber might be the best move Poile has ever made.

Duchene and Landeskog are very, very good players bordering on great when they're on their respective games, but I don't think either is elite. At least not yet.

Pretty sure Sakic tried to get Subban already; there were rumors Colorado was involved right before the deal to Nashville. And, in a press conference not too long after, Sakic re-iterated how difficult it is to acquire top pairing defensemen, and said he tried to trade for a #1.

Not really interested in moving Landy at all, no reason to move them as a package deal and I'm not obsessed with PK like half the world is for some reason. The only way I'd even entertain them as a package is to get a top, top end young D.

That some reason is the fact that he is a top 5 D in the world. That trade is ridiculously tilted in our favour.

A bit strong of a word but he is an absolute elite defenseman. The guys that are clearly better than him are EK, DD, Burns, Hedman and that's it.

I'd take Letang over him, well when Letang is healthy lol.

Letang is very good but he's not in the same echelon as Burns, Subban, Hedman, Keith, Karlsson, etc. We've never really seen what he could (or couldn't) do without the Crosby/Malkin juggernaut in front of him. And the Pens didn't even really lose a step when he was lost to injury, so...

This past cup run was one of the weirdest I've seen recently. Talk about a team barely staying alive and getting badly out played all the way to the end more often than not. They won this year for two reasons, one was goaltending, and the other was pure scoring ability.

The previous run was a bit more dominant and deserving IMO. You know, the one where Letang played almost 30 minutes a night. Which is something none of Burns, Subban, Hedman, or Karlsson have accomplished.

Crosby had no business wining the Con Smythe in either instance.

I get what you're saying, but I think we'd consider Letang the same on any team, as long as it was reasonably decent.

I wasn't a believer at first, but he passes the eye test to me - he looks like a real star (an of course performs like one).

And IMO, he's been playing at an elite level much longer than Brent Burns has; Burns was actually a forward as recently as the 2013-2014 season (in which he played the entire season as an RW).

Duchene is going to walk in two years and the return is going to be pretty limited when he's traded. Landeskog is meh.

Anyway Nashville isn't doing that deal anyway.

Pass to any deals. I love our forward group as is. We want more defense - go get Franson - costs nothing but $$$

That's not true at all. They looked way worse without Letang. He is their offensive engine. Penguins didn't look that good this season as last season.

Letang is a great player, but very injury-prone one. You can't trust him to stay healthy.

Dude, Franson sucks. There is a reason he is still unsigned.

Sure, let's return basically the entire forward group that helped contribute to the historically bad season the Avs just had.

Duchene is the first that has to go, other moves would depend on the return and how the team performs. But 9 still needs to move on, as do the Avs.
