from Adrian Dater of All Things Avs,
What about this scenario: The Avs sign Foppa, he plays, and plays well. But the Avs don’t win enough games. They fall out of playoff contention.
DEAL FOPPA AT THE DEADLINE! -We know he’s not going to want to play here if the Avs are out of the playoff picture in another month (the NHL trade deadline is Feb. 28). The Avs aren’t going to care who’s in their lineup if they’re 10 points out of a spot by then (it could happen, the way they’re playing).
So why not deal Foppa to a contender (it won’t be Detroit, don’t worry. Forsberg has told close friends and relatives he’d never play for the Red Wings. The rivalry still lives, people).
You get a first-round pick and/or maybe more for him.
