    yea a guy getting 30 points on a team he barely plays on would never increase production on a shit team who won't be making the playoffs. guys like jost playing on the 4th line is why the avs are good.

    giving up a pair of 2nds to only lose toews a year later in the exp. draft would hurt

    we will protect toews, trading jost for weegar and losing weegar wouldn’t be that devastating.

    I like Dunn but the eye test tells me I like Graves more. I wouldn't make that trade if I was Sakic.

    Also I doubt Dunn can ever match Krugs point production even if he got PP1 time, and considering how much size he has over Krug he isn't really that much better in his own end.

    Drouin is worth less than Jost, should have taken the offer.

    Can’t because of the chemistry he has with Suzuki and having co-led the Habs in points in the playins. Plus, our AHL team already has its C’s so no room for Jost.

    BTW, i am surprised the Avs didn’t sign Thornton as 3C. He’s big, strong, wins faceoffs and just as slow as Jost and cheaper contract. Huge upgrade.

    What the hell has that to do with you claiming he is excellent?

    With the compressed schedule depth will be important, so it’s more important to have guys on the 3rd line who can play on the other lines as needed. Having a slow line that doesn’t play transition like the rest of the team (including the defensemen) doesn’t make sense.

    Jost is to Colorado fans what Bracco was to Leafs fans a couple years ago.

    I think that is a poor comparison. Jost has been hitting around 25 points and double digit goals in a secondary role as a very young player in the NHL. Bracco never really played in the NHL.

    Yes, post 51 had it right. He’s probably more productive than Avs give him credit for. It’s just that he’s frustrating to watch since he’s not a stylistic fit. He has good analytics too for what that’s worth. As others were saying, he could possibly thrive somewhere else.

    People on here pretending to know all about the Avs should know this. :D

    Jost is completely superfluous at this point. He's not going to usurp anyone from the roster when everyone's healthy. A draft pick or prospect for him just to give him a shot somewhere else will do. As far as Graves goes, hands off. With Z gone, and prospects presumably making the roster, we need a defensive defenceman more than ever. Theoretically running Makar, Girard, Toews, Byram, and Timmins is asking for trouble.

    You’re right, of course. I was being facetious. More comparing how Avs fans are talking about the player to how Leafs fans were talking about Bracco. But of course Jost is better than Bracco. Still wouldn’t trade for either ;)

    Underperforming player with good analytics? Get Dubas on the line!

    Jost is like McDavid speed compared to Thornton.

    If Jost and Thornton were in a race, you would need time lapse photography to determine who won!

    Exactly, some of the hyperbole in this thread just makes you wonder...and I’m not even an Avs fan

    You are correct, my apologies.

    My rolling CapFriendly I was working with had a forward traded away on it that I had forgotten I had made. [hoped for is probably more accurate]
