Team Explanation
Blockbuster trade for Landeskog and Duchene involving Morin, Haag, Cousins, Laughton, a First Round Pick, Read and the dump that is MacDonald.

Is this too much? Not enough? No idea what Colorado can really get for these guys given the down years they are having and what a mess Colorado is right now. This trade imho could only happen if Colorado is feeling more pressure to make a deal and struggling to find suitors. Hopefully Wednesday is this entertaining and deals get done!

This is probaly the worst trade or idea i have ever heard in my life you would be an idiot if you only got a first for matt duchene and Landeskog. And adding the other career 4th lines is not gonna help. And the Del Zotto trade is the second worst trade ever. U don't know **** about the NHL.

I'll just leave it at this: the Avs would be well over the 50 contract limit

Regarding Del Zotto, defenders haven't been cheap this deadline. As for Colorado, granted, like I said in the description you apparently didn't read, this would only be possible if Colorado is struggling to find suitors. I'm sure some team out there can break the bank if they really want to do so. The career 4th lines quip is completely ignorant on your part. No one in this deal is a career 4th line forward. Maybe you confused Cousins and Laughton for such but they are middle six prospects. Hagg and Morin are the obvious features since supposedly Colorado wants nearly NHL ready defensive prospects.

Foppa, good point about the contract limit. I'm obviously blowing that off here just pushing center pieces of a deal and getting the dollars to work roughly. Looking at the Colorado roster, this is more doable in the off season because of all the UFAs they would surely not be re-signing.

Thanks for the comments guys, but spare the attitude, Vanho.
