    Toffoli, Burakovsky, and Nyquist could be cheap experimental buys at the deadline.

    I’ve always wanted to get Toffoli, think his offensive production could hit a new level with a more offence focused team

    I'd be good with Toffoli. Maybe the Sakic and Blake connection can give the Avs the inside track.

    I don't know how cheap he'd be considering he's still signed for another season and the Kings don't have a whole lot of young talent.

    Isn't Toffoli rather slow?

    Toffoli is slow on the Kings, who are already slow. I imagine he’d look slower here. He also doesn’t have a prime Jeff Carter running his line anymore and it shows.

    I bet we do a hockey trade, like with Jersey or Philly or some other stumbling team
    Ghetto seems like the obvious choice

    I doubt Sven would do it though. Unless they're looking to shed salary. Sven + pick

    I'm still going with Silfverberg over some of these wingers getting mentioned. The Ducks are still in the playoff mix but they're really struggling. He hasn't had the greatest contract season but I still like the fit on the 2nd line or even next to Soderberg in more of a defensive role. Earlier in the season it seemed like he'd cost a decent amount but I'm not so sure now. His numbers have dropped off some (still on pace for a good offensive season) and there could be quite a few rental wingers available. Stone, Simmonds, Ferland, Nyquist, Dzingel, etc could all be traded.

    Value of: - Quick + Toffoli to Colorado

    :DD

    What would you give up for him and what would you be comfortable extending him at?

    Would you trade for him in a pure rental capacity or want to extend prior to making the deal?

    I'm bad with trade value/proposals and also biased from an Avs POV so I'm not really sure. Doesn't one of the lesser prospects (Greer?) and a 2nd round pick seem like enough?

    Free agency is a crazy place so I could see him getting around $5M/yr. Maybe a bit less on a longer term deal or a bit more if it's shorter term. The thing is, I wouldn't want to extend him or any other rental until I know for sure I can't get Stone in the offseason.

    I like Silfverberg as well. He's one guy I would like the Avs to get this coming free agency.

    I'd like to have Quick but he's same age as Varly and always hurt just like Varly. Would stay away from both TT and Quick

    Edit: Check that, Quick is 2 years older than Varly

    When was the last time a rental signed an extension with his new team shortly after the trade?

    I keep seeing people suggesting it as something realistic but i can't remember ir ever happening.

    All 3 signed closer to FA

    McDonagh signed July 1 2018
    Kane signed May 24 2018
    Reaves signed June 30 2018



    Turris signed Nov 5, 2017 The trade wouldn't have gone through unless he agreed to terms before the trade

    Blues fans look at Ottawa’s number 1 pick like it was Lauren Gardner.

    I mean if the Avs were trading for a UFA they'd get an idea with how likely that player is to re sign. I mean I'm sure the Sharks had a decent idea Kane would re sign when they made that trade.
