No. They already acquired guys like O'Brien and Johnson this off season and definitely have at least a little more depth on that position. If one of the fellow defensemen get hurt than there will be someone to step in and their place in the standings isn't going to falter because of it. But if they take away a guy like Paul? You get several counter effects. Numero uno is that the fans and the organization love the guy. He's been there long enough that he has certainly developed a fan base of sorts and while it may not decide a trade? It definitely can be a factor. Also? Think about what happens when he was to be shipped off to Music City. Duchene wouldn't have any competition anymore and it would filled by someone not suitable or would force a rushed trade that would probably end up costing them in the long run. It's really just not worth it. And when you think about who they're getting in return, Suter is still a good player and all, but he's some superstar and he's not going to be able to replace that quality that Paul continues to have.

Suter Now think about Nashville and their pile of centers. Is Paul even really going to be able to fit into this squad? They have a couple of good experienced centers and even some young and developing ones, they're not going to want to ruin that. Are they? Sure you could say that they could use some more fire power but if they need it that badly then they're going to have to look farther. I think one of the good things for the Avs is that they don't need to depend on one guy and I think it would be a total change for that to be the exact opposite if he was to land himself in the Bridgestone Arena. And like someone had said before me, they don't have the defensive depth to lost someone like Suter. He's a top guy with Weber right now and by taking him away? You force the coaching staff to try and scramble and push an inexperienced kid into his spot. You can't take such a gamble with chemistry and all that jazz, especially not with a team who does want to get to those finals so badly. They know Suter/Weber works so why break it up? It wouldn't make sense. Overall? I can't see Nashville or Colorado accepting this, some serious additions needed to get the thumbs up.
Bang on
Realistically Colorado would need a passable #2 center coming back and Nasville would need something like a #2/3 defenceman coming back to even attempt to cover the hole Suter would leave. Here is a shot in the dark:

To Nashville
Stastny
Qunicey
Gaunce or 2nd

Colorado
Suter
Fisher

Thoughts?

They wouldn't do it after the price paid for Fisher.

Not even to mention we wouldn't trade Stastny unless O'Reilly was ready. So realistically, we don't need a center coming back.

We needed a goalie for this year and we did what was necessary to do so, colorado is slowly gonna make their way up in the standings if we make the playoffs this year or not
