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
Maybe a guy like Marcus Johansson?
oooh yeah i was thinking him too. He's having a crappy year so its not like it would be a "win" but a change for both could be good
I doubt Sven would do it though. Unless they're looking to shed salary. Sven + pick
All aboard the Toffoli toffee train.
TT + Quick. Let’s go.
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
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.
Mcdonagh or Kane? Winnipeg tried with Stastny.
Yeah it happened three times last year lol. Turris, McDonagh, and Kane.
Ryan Reaves too.
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.
Shortly after as in extension agreed prior to the trade. Those are not the examples i was looking for.
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.
