<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Foppa21</b></div><div>Any Barrie trade for a player of Horvat's caliber would be contingent on an extension, it would have to be. As for the trade being crap, yeah it's a little muddy, but a 60 point center for a 60 point defenseman? I truly don't see how you can think that it's so lopsided. Take out all the extras (Van 1st, Kaut, etc.) and that's pretty damn even if there's an extension in place.

Don't go thinking that Avs fans are rushing to just give Barrie away. He's one of the best offensive defenseman in the league, and without a doubt the most underrated.</div></div>

Barrie is in his prime and Horvat hasn't reached that yet. Horvat is kind of like Bergeron 2.0. He's a core piece that you build around. You are not suppose to trade away players like that just because "there is an extension in place" for a guy that is one year from becoming a UFA. Try to actually understand the position that Vancouver is in right now. The nucks are still rebuilding and not ready to compete yet, so it is plain stupid to trade for a guy in his prime when your other younger players haven't reached that point yet. You cant just say "me avs fan, horvat fill our need, we trade barrie and make van add because barrie better and extension". You have to look at both sides and say to yourself "does this make sense for both parties". If Van trades Horvat, who is going to be that reliable two way 2C for them? Are they suppose to just shove Gaudette in that role and hope everything works out?
