  1. Well Grubauer obviously doesn't want to grab the starting job any time soon. Guess I was wrong about him.
  2. RIP Emery. Loved watching some of his fights. As for Varly he's worthless to us now. He's guaranteed to be injured again this year more than likely. I have total faith in Grubauer to carry more of the load and take the starting job completely by end of the year.
  3. All I'm saying is there can only be 2 of the 3. So is the future Barrie and Girard, Barrie and Makar, or Girard and Makar? It won't be the 3.
  4. I mean we can't have Barrie, Girard, and Makar in our back as that is lacking some size for the shutdown type lines. Also probably wouldn't want to make them dmen pairs.\ Barrie is gonna chase money in 2yrs so I would think we try to trade him off for a forward or nice picks. If Makar truly is gonna be a stud then Girard would become expendable if Makar shows great NHL signs.
  5. Btw Smith-Pelly signed with the Caps for 1yr 1mil and apparently had 2 other lucrative offers he passed over.
  6. He's just now out of his 900k average deal. I mean if you can get a player for around 1.5mil for 2-3yrs that are his type it's not that bad.
  7. It's even more insane that apparently tomorrow lots of Sharks players are gonna meet with Tavares and apparently the Sharks are gonna offer around 12.5 to 13mil per for 7 years.
  8. Well the only dumb part is signing the older ones to more than 1yr deal. Also seeing as NYI offered Tavares 8yrs 11mil per it's safe to say he's not worth going after. Tavares is a 9mil per at best in my books.
  9. We got plenty of space for Johnny Tavares. Or maybe we sign Joe Thornton or Rick Nash to 1yr deal. I feel there is possibly a good 2nd to 3rd line player we can pick up for a year or 2 to fill the shoes of like a Comeau.
  10. This was in a TSN article. "A restricted free agent, Grubauer is due for a good raise (two years at a little over $3.5-million per, according to Matt Cane's free agent model) and should have an opportunity to play in Colorado"
  11. I'm so happy as I said I wanted the Avalanche to go after Grubauer. He's young and can go well with the future of the team. Varly's days are numbered.
  12. You know the Hawks are regretting that Seabrook deal big time. Teams still have to play it smart waiting for Seattle to arrive and once again rip teams apart roster wise. Hell might have another lockout too. Overall goaltending is a huge ???? for the team. Defense I feel is decent and judging by the signings would assume we aren't dipping our feet into that pool. I feel where the team truly needs help is secondary scoring. As you had pointed out teams could stack up against MacKinnon line and caused the Avs some trouble then relying on less of a threat. We need a solid scoring winger/center who isn't past his prime. Only names I can truly think of are Tavares and Kessel if any of that drama is real. I do think the Avs will try to get Tavares, but I'm not holding my breath on him signing.
  13. Well since he's like 27 I would think he could sign a 3yr deal for decent money and make a run for a Stanley Cup and yes he could go elsewhere for that type of money, but maybe he would buy in to it. He would still get a huge contract at 30 anyways. If he wants to chase money then it's his loss because the teams that would most likely throw the 10+ wouldn't help his odds out I feel. But my idea still stands and it was a long shot one. And before we bring it up I'm greatly against any idea of getting Thornton on the team. I'm perfectly fine with building our team and getting some role players to fill a gap or 2.
  14. The only player I would want the Avs to pursue would be Tavares for around 8.5mil for 3-5yrs. He would fill that 2nd line scoring depth as a real threat, but obviously getting him for that price isn't completely logical but if he buys into the winning a Cup chance it would be nice
  15. I can't see them trading Holtby after he's literally saved their playoff chances. Washington would still be in a win now and I don't think they feel it with Grubauer in the near future. I'm expect Grubauer to get around 3 to 3.5mil per year. So it would only save like 1.5mil from Holtby.
