That doesn't address a need for the Avs. We may as well keep Wolski because at least he has proven he can put up 50 or so points with solid defence, and he has the potential for even more. Anisimov hasn't proven anything yet. The 2nd rounder is nice, but not enough to give up on a talent like Wolski.
If Wolski gets traded, it will be for a goalie IMO. With the possibility of drafting Duchene, Wolski could be on the block, although having a 1-2-3 punch of Stastny, Duchene and Wolski ain't bad.
I wouldn't do that as an Avs fan, Wolski is just getting readjusted to playing center, he has grown leaps and bounds defensively, and he still has tons of offensive potential. I think he's going to surprise a lot of people next year if we get a competent coach and he's given a proper oppurtunity.
Avs get *****. Who knows if Artem Anisimov will even be a legit NHLer... nice prospect tho.
Wolski is proven commodity with skill + size... too bad the Avs were so terrible due to injuries that his stats weren't better.
Are you kidding me? Do you even watch the Avs? Wolski is what I like to call a drifter. It doesn't matter who he plays with, some nights he is awesome and most nights he is invisible. The kid has unbelievable talents as seen when he participates in the shootout, but he can't put it together during the game when there are actual defenders.
He has had many opportunities to play with people like Hejduk, Sakic, Smyth etc. over the past 2 seasons and really hasn't done much with it. Until Wolski learns how to play consistently every night, he is going to be another NHLer that has all the talent in the world but can't figure out how to use it. He takes too many nights off considered a top commodity.
If I was the Avs I would explore my opportunities in trading Wolski if someone offered a good package we should take it. That being said I think the Avs can do better than this Rangers proposal.
