Avs Proposals/Rumors/Free Agents 2017-18 Part II

As good of a place as any to begin a thread with this thought. I concur.

Also, didn't we used to have some summer fun threads? Now might be a nice time for some positive distraction.

I suppose the Isles picks are ok, but wont they be late ? so a bunch of 2nds for Duchene essentially?

I mean i guess if we have a bunch of assets like that we can trade up, not that i think we are that capable but its a nice idea in theory

At this point, given the fan created proposals you keep Duchene. The time to move him has past at this juncture.
If you are Sakic you need to have a conversation with him, tell him at this point he is staying and clear the air so Duchene can focus moving forward.

We should have a poll for how many more threads we go through before Duchene gets traded.

He's taken over this whole forum lol

Its gonna be like this every frickin summer, some major thing we have to be obsessed over

ROR
Roy
now Dutchess

and probably Barrie once Duchene is outta here

I just want some peace for once, a nice calm summer where we add to the pool and can feel good about
our org going forward...too much to ask i guess.

World peace, equal rights, Avs doing well...list of impossible things

At the rate we are going, hockey will no longer be a sport that is played before Duchene is traded.

Or maybe a pool. Whoever picks the correct part gets to be king of the board for a year.

We should start up the favourite Av elimination game. I'd do it myself but mobile + no ambition.

I'd place Calgary and NYI in the mid pack. I wouldn't mind holding their firsts, you never know. I wouldn't mind holding a lotto ticket on Mike Smith and Greiss/Halak.

Seriously though, I get you cant take a face of the franchise in his prime for just magic beans but there has to be something workable out there with those kind of picks supposedly on the table.

If PLD is on the table at all then they need to figure something out.

Trade every player on the roster for another player who wears the same number.

ie
#4 Barrie -> Hall
#14 Comeau -> Benn

Make it challenging, and actually form a team doing that...

It would be nice to have all the Duchene discussion in one thread.

I agree, though that's sort of what this thread is now.

Nothing specific came out of CBJ beyond Friedman speculating about Murray. See this is the problem... Someone says Murray + prospect was offered, and people either assume it's trash or it's gold like PLD.

Edit : How is it that rumors from guys like Friedman, and HFboard fan proposals are the same thing?

Just my opinion but they could be making it up like Eklund or hearing it second hand from someone who's making it up. Unless its the GM going on record saying we offered this and this (which rarely happens) then it's all just unsubstantiated dribble

I would take a chance of one of NYI or Cal to miss the playoffs.

Perhaps but one team made the playoffs and got better the other is going to get Duchene and they missed by a point or something and they didn't have JT for their final 3 games or something. Very likely they both make it.

And still could be a 16-20 pick. Nothing to sneeze at.
