  • The Avs just won a cup with a cyclops Kuemper and a back up. This move frees up more cash to keep the team together. I love it.

    Now get the deals done with Lehkonen and Nichushkin and then see if we can squeeze Kadri, Miller, or Malkin in there.
    Anyone seen Jake Plummer?

    • Definitely rather have nichuskin,lech and/or Kadri over kuemper tho I'm not sure we can do all of those but we'll see.

      • Anyone that they can't sign they should trade the negotiating rights to immediately, before the draft.

        Kuemper and Burakovsky definitely, Manson if there's no chance he will be back, Kadri if someone offers him 10M+.

        • Looks like Joe is making more good decisions, as he takes care of a goalie situation.

          • Dater also just said the rumors Manson has his heart set on going back to Anaheim are totally wrong

            • Well that's encouraging but considering Dater is only right about 24% of the time it doesn't mean a lot.

              Still, if they could keep the defensive group of Makar, Toews, Byram, Girard, EJ, and Manson together I'd be over the moon.

                  Agreed. The patience he showed, and his methodical approach to the moves he made, got the Avs to from the depths of a bottom dwelling team to a dominant champion. He definitely earned this honor.

                  • Andy Strickland reporting: The Colorado Avalanche and Valeri Nichushkin are closing in on an extension. Still some work to get down before deal is completed. ##GoAvsGo
                    hope this is true!

                      That would be our most important move of the offseason. Glad they're getting close

                      Husso signed a 3 year deal with the Wings. Yuck.

                      • Remaining goals, assuming they don't trade Girard:
                        -extend MacKinnon
                        -bring back Nichushkin
                        -bring back Lehkonen
                        -find a #6D (hopefully Manson)
                        -find a #2C (hopefully Kadri, JT Miller, or Evgeni Malkin)
                        -find a #4C (hopefully Darren Helm)
                        -find another winger (heard there's interest in Patrick Kane even those he's an asshat)

                        • Georgiev signed for 3 years, 3.34M
                          Jacob MacDonald signed for 2 years on a two way NHL/AHL contract

                          MacDonald figures to replace Ryan Murray/Jack Johnson as the primary extra D.

                          Makar and Toews
                          Girard and Byram
                          EJ and ??
                          MacDonald, MacDermid (also a winger/goon)

                          Still need that 6D.

                          Could be they try JJ again at the 6D and let Manson walk.

                          • Choo choo has re signed with the Avs wooohoo 8 years tho! Interested to see what the Numbers are

                            Nichushkin is 8x$6.125M on his extension in COL

                            that's a lot of $$ especially at 8 years

                                Francouz

                                No way they can bring back Kadri at this point. Lehkonen is going to cost 4-5M per but he's a RFA so he's not getting away.

                                By my count that leaves about 10M for a 2C, a 3W, and a 6D.
