[Trade] Steve Downie for Max Talbot

There gotta be more to that? Like a pick or prospect going to Colorado?

Probably figured Mackinnon is ready to take a top 6 role now...but still Downie had a great start

While Talbot is an excellent bottom 6 and clutch player, but the guy only has a few more good season in him, pretty banged up because of his small size and his style of play.

Do the AV's really need another centre?

Duchene is having a great year with O'Reilly on his wing so it seems unlikely they break that up anytime soon. They're also pretty committed to trying to bring Mack along slowly. Talbot would appear to be either insurance should they not be able to re-sign Stastny or there to take over should there be a trade to be made involving Stastny for a legit top 4 D. He wouldn't provide nearly the same offense but they could transition that line into an even more defensive role.

Duchene is atually more a winger then a centerman. They added Grit, and there is nothing wrong with adding more centers. Talbot is more or less a true 3rd centerman, as for Mackinnon is not really a 3rd line grinding player. This move totally makes sense for the Avalanche. Well played. Talbot will be awesome for the Canucks right now.
