    Now being reported elsewhere... I would take it as a sign that Downie's asking price was too high and the Avs were getting something for him. Talbot is signed through 15-16.

    Sounds like an odd trade, unless the team doesn't believe they can't re-sign Downie.

    Dudes gotta be trolling us. I thought Roy liked Downie? Why would he trade him eleven games in? WTF!

    Ridiculous downgrade. A 4th liner with 2 points this season and signed for 2 more years past this.

    I'd take 6 months of Downie over 2.5 years of Talbot for ****s sake.

    Keefe isn't really an insider, is he? Why would he have the scoop on this?

    This can't be real, if it is maybe Downie was the bad influence?

    I would have thought we could get more for Downie than Talbot...

    This seems just terrible

    I hate this. Another left hander. Another centre. Plus Downie is better. There must be more to this.

    Have to agree. Has to be more to it ... picks/prospects ... something. Downie is better and a great fit on this team. Why give him up for Talbot? Not liking this move at all...

    I wonder if there is a pick involved or if this is straight up?

    Tin foil hat on: Roy is clearing salary to re-sign Stastny.
