Could the Avs and Leafs make a deal?

If it’s true and Matt Duchene is available, the Leafs should be all over the Avalanche in trying to make a deal. The Avs need defence badly. I’d move Dion Phaneuf and Kadri for Duchene in a heartbeat and even eat a little salary if need be. Would you do that? Would Joe Sakic?

    Tough one. Duchene is a huge upgrade over Kadri but would moving our top defenseman be worth the upgrade? I personally would probably be on board if we ate 50% of Kadri’s pending RFA deal or $1M of Phaneuf’s deal (if they don’t go for Kadri). I would also want them to throw in Gormley. He isn’t performing like Colorado was expecting and I figure the former 1st rounder is worth the investment, I would even move back a body like Marincin or Brennan if they wanted an extra defenseman outright.

    That being said I don’t think Colorado goes for it. It is a lot of salary (Kadri’s contract) to take on for the best player in the deal.
