First off, that's not getting you Duchene. Bob Mackenzie said about a month ago that the asking price top 2 D-man, high end D prospect, NHL forward and 1st rd pick. I like McCabe but i don't think he qualifies as top 2 on many teams in the league, hes a solid 3-4. If the Avs were willing, it would be McCabe, Guhle, Reinhart and a 1st maybe 2nd and that is just way to much for Duchene, who is a center by the way not a winger. We dont even know Reinhart's ceiling yet and his floor is likely 50 points, he's practically equaling Duchene's output.
So from the frontrunning teams:
Ekholm, Fabbro, Jarnkrok and a first?
Or Murray, Carlsson, Anderson and a first?
Would you pull the trigger if you were Nashville or Columbus.
I think many underrate Duchen, but that price is too high to pay for any team, IMO.
Who gives away their third-best defenceman and their best defensive prospect in the same trade?
How does an organization backfill that hole?
