Heatley to Colorado

With Sakic announcing retirement the Avs will be looking for a big name player. Dont know what they could give up though.

Nothing. He's not going to Colorado. These threads need to stop.

Colorado is cutting salary, not looking to add salary.

Liles, Wolski, Shattenkirk, Duchene, and 2010 first.

I am not sure that is enough.

Colorado isn't spending money until they get the chance to sign Luongo or some other top flight goalie.

It worked last time.

I doubt I would trade Shattenkirk or Duchene for Heatley straight up.

Maybe:

Liles, Svatos and Tucker for Heatley

Is the most the Avs should give up... maybe include another defenseman like Clark, Salei or Preissing.

Seems similar to the EDM offer, except the Sens aren't getting Penner's nice contract
Smid, Cogliano, Penner

How about a #1 crybaby who demands a trade because he was put on the 2nd power play unit?

Okay, listen up. We ALL realize that Heatley is a bit of a head case and for that very reason, his value has taken a hit. HOWEVER, when he's on his game, he's a top-5 player in the league, and probably top-3 as far as goalscoring goes.

The hilarity of the guy who said they wouldn't trade Shattenkirk for Heater straight up is case in point... I'm ROFL'ing at that one right now actually.

LOL.

Liles = Gilbert
Cogliano > Svatos
Penner >>> Tucker

Nailed it. The Avs traded Smyth to cut salary, why would they give up prospects to take on an even bigger contract.

They are rebuilding, why would they care if they have a big name player or not. Getting him doesn't help their rebuilding.

Not a well thought out proposition at all. The Avs are one of the last teams that should be in the Heatley hunt.

Shattenkirk is part of our rebuild, Heatley is not...

Why would we want to trade away our future for Heatley. We are in a rebuild and in no way are we going to be competing for the cup or even playoffs next year, unless some sort of miracle happens.

Two reason why Colorado would reject a Heatley for Shattenkirk straight up swap:

1) They are cutting payroll (Hint: the Smyth trade)

2) They are in a full rebuild, and have no intentions of competing right now. Fans will have to wait a few years for the young guns like Shattenkirk to be ready then the team will worry about a star player. (by that time it will be Duchene though)

Dunno about Heatley, but I know of a way you could get yourself a top name player...

To Colorado:
2009 1st round draft pick (3rd overall)

To Colorado:
Matt Duchene

I think it's a pretty fair deal.

Sens offer Kuba, Kelly, and Neil for Stastny, if that gets it done for Heatley.

This makes zero sense. Why would they trade Smyth and then add Heatley?
