Joe Sakic says talks ongoing but no trade imminent

Paul Stastny patiently answered the same types of questions he has been hearing for days as the Wednesday 1 p.m. trading deadline approaches.

Paul Stastny, Avs could part ways if new deal not done by Wednesday

A young team in the midst of its most successful season in years, the Avs are not about to trade away first-round draft picks or top prospects in their system with the kinds of trades the St. Louis Blues made Friday — when they acquired Ryan Miller and Steve Ott from Buffalo in exchange for a boatload of young talent.

Here’s where it gets tricky, though: While the Avs cannot justify importing expensive rentals, as they could in the days of Ray Bourque, Theo Fleury and Rob Blake, neither can they be stuck in the situation of having essentially their own rental player on the roster beyond Wednesday in the form of top players with expiring contracts.
