    I just wanted people to see this play



    As an Avs fan, he's more valuable than Duchene by far.

    Would you guys rather have Duchene/Turris over Girard?

    The first round pick will be more valuable, Girard is nice though. 2nd best part of that trade.

    Can the Leafs game start already so these Avs threads can disappear to page 2?

    Trust me, I hate it too, especially the Mack/Rant ones, but this one isn't just boasting about our riches.

    I think it will have to be very high to be a more valuable asset. At this point I take Girard over Makar who was a very high pick himself. Although he might make me look bad on that one with the way he’s playing this year in college. To be honest the only Avalanche players I take over Girard are Mackinnon and Rantanen, I’m really really high on Girard.

    Trade Looks Amazing for Colorado..

    First round pick (1-8 overall)
    Samuel Girard -) top 4 defender
    Shane Bowers -) Potential top 6 forward
    Vladislav Kamenev -) Middle Six Forward

    I don’t think he’s better than Duchene yet. He’s Colorado’s best D though. That’s very impressive for a sophomore 20 year old defenseman playing on the same team as Erik Johnson and Tyson Barrie.

    Speaking as a Nashville fan who still loves Girard, I do the trade again tomorrow. If we didn't have the top four we have I would have to think harder about it.

    I feel like we should wait for Girard to play a whole season at a high level before we come to big conclusions

    A Gatorade would have been more valuable to the Avs than Duchene. It just wasnt meant to be.

    I completely agree. But, Girard is a 20 year old kid is making plays like this, after looking very good as a 19 year old rookie. It's fair for Avs fans to be excited. He's going to be special.

    Girard will be the top asset from the trade, Better than the #1 pick or Duchene/Turris

    He has zero cups. How can he be any good?

    Remember when Avs fans balked at the thought of Girard, thinking they should be getting Ekholm instead? Preds fans know their **** when talking about d-men. And, yeah, zero hesitation doing that trade again. Glad Girard's doing so well.

    Strange, I dont remember the Avs owning Chabot and sending him to the Sens in that trade...




    As for the OP, yeah Girard is quite clearly the best player from that deal. Amazing the Avs got as much as we did for Duchene. Truly amazing.

    It’s okay Turris is still more valuable to us than a number 5 defenseman
