Imagine your the GM our our beloved Avalanche. Remember all those awesome days in accounting school? Ahhh, good times. Actuaries can suck it. But now to the real question:
Would you trade any ONE OF Matt Duchene, Ryan Q`Reilly, or Gabriel Landeskog to Columbus as part of a deal for Rick Nash? It's not important what else would be involved as we assume it would include picks (pretend we have decent ones) and prospects, but the lynchpin of the deal would be young NHL talent. I think we can all agree that those three guys fit that bill.
