| Yeah but theyre not gonna trade Sakic and why would Florida want an aging Blake for a young but elite goalie?|
It would have to be one or two of Liles, Tanguay, Hejduk, or Aebischer.
Aebischer and Tanguay is the likely pairing.
Aebischer because Florida would need a goalie.
Tanguay because he is viewed by many as a 'secondary' player in the Avs system and that his numbers are inflated by his teammates. Regardless of this view, he is an exceptional young player.
The Avs would also need to free up a decent chunk of salary and Tanguay would be the easiest way, as Florida won't be going for Blake (too old and expensive) or Brisebois (Florida would need a defensive defenseman, they already have Van Ryn, Bouwmeester, Krajicek, and Sean Hill as better than average offensive defensemen.
If a defenseman gets included also, it will be either Liles (with Hill or someone else going the other way as well) or one of the defensive guys (Kurt Sauer, Bob Boughner, and Karlis Skrastins.)
