<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>ChiHawk</b></div><div>So the interesting thing about never trading a 1st, was the Avs were never in position for a very serious cup run until now. Until the last 2 seasons (this one included), it's been 10 years and more since the Avs were in the conversation for a cup. For a team with a bunch of young talent coming together that can make a run, the first round picks don't matter nearly as much as adding a big piece to compete. That's why you haven't seen Sakic trade a 1st.</div></div>

Thats definitely a fair point, but even in the last 3 seasons where the Avs made the playoffs Sakic has never traded more than a 3rd at the deadline. I think thats a testiment to how patient/stubborn he is when looking to add players for short term gain. I dont think Saad is the type of player that will get him to move a 1st for.

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>ChiHawk</b></div><div>You aren't getting any of these guys for just a 1st; maybe Palmieri. I would be shocked if Hall signs a 1 year but I'd suppose anything is possible. TBL is interesting with what they are going to do. The UFA market besides Taffoli, Hall and Hoffman is not rich and Hoffman is definitely not a player the Avs should want for their system. Taffoli could be a good fit.</div></div>

Hall, Dadonov, Toffoli, Hoffman, Saad, Tatar, Palmieri, Killorn, Palat, Johnson, Stepan, Stastny, Anderson, Laine/Ehlers, JVR, Dzingel, Johnsson, Kessel, Bozak, Hornqvist, Athanasiou, Smith, Namestnikov, Granlund, etc.

All Fs who could potentially be available this offseason. To be fair, not all of them would be good targets for COL, and the prices for them vary a lot, but the sheer number of them available is enough to flood the market. With a flat cap and many teams cutting salary it will definitely be a buyers market. Im confident there will be some available for cheap, and thats where Sakic should look first before looking to give up a 1st
