Well, it is quite obvious that this season is pretty much over for the Avalanche. The great majority of our fan base is resigned to the fact that we will be sellers this year. As your fan base probably knows, we have major goalie issues. Our side knows that Schneider is a good young goalie with some promise, and that your team may need some defensive help. Many at Mile High Hockey (Avalanche version of Nucks Misconduct) have heard/read/created rumors that the Avs are talking to your your team about trading us Schneider. Being as fair as you possibly can what do you think your team would want for him?
Judging by the way some trades have gone so far, and that the price of trading for him within the division may be higher than trading him to some Eastern Conference team, I will offer an initial proposal:
Schneider+3rd round pick (end of the third round)
Budaj + Holos (Holos is a fast offensive defenceman, insert Ryan Wilson if you want more of the stay at home type)
Schneider+Vancouver 2nd round pick
Budaj+Hunwick+Colorado's 2nd round pick
What does your side think? Is trading him within the division an absolute no because he is really that good, or can something be worked out?
