Orpik to Colorado

Trying to add a little bit to Colorado's defense, does anyone think Colorado could land Orpik without doing too much damage to the rest of their line-up?

I was thinking something along the lines of

Jones + Cumiskey + Pick/Prospect

Jones gives them a top 6 winger, Cumiskey could be very good with high flying team if used correctly and then i can't speak for the pick or prospect. I doubt this will work, as adding Cumiskey for Orpik blows a pretty big hole in your team defensively. Could the Avs make it work though? Without giving up Stew/Staz/Dutch?

You could make a fair offer. Maybe that offer is, but I don't think Orpik is available.

Willing to give up nearly anything except 3 elite players, it's like pittsburgh willing to make a trade but don't want to give up Crosby/Malkin/Letang is that terrible?

We'll take Duchane off your hands. Don't like it? Don't get Orpik.

So he's honestly worth a 40G, 90P forward(future)? I honestly didn't realize his value was that high.

No, orpik has been with the pens the longest out of all our players. He has also had great chemistry with letang this year. He's not available.

Orpik is not worth Duchene imo, but would Stewart sound good?

I'd be real tempted to do that, but I have a hard time seeing Orpik ever being traded.

We need defense that can pass a puck, and who wasn't schooled in clutch and grab, or if they were, knows how to learn something knew. Hannan's only form of defense is bear hugging.
