Colorado Avalanche Rumours


Use our rumours form to send us nhl trade rumors.

(single word yields best result)

25 Apr 2018 18:27:03
I think that the Avalanche have a very good chance of signing Drew Doughty; they have 25 million in cap space next year and only really have to re-sign Yakupov and Nemeth. They will have to give Rantanen, Compher and Kerfoot their big contracts the next offseason, the same one as Doughty's UFA year, so I think they might just want to clear all the space they need to make it work.

to Colorado

to Florida

Sceviour is much cheaper, but Florida has its whole core signed long-term and has room for a better, more expensive option in Soderberg. Colorado can replace Soderberg with a 1-year UFA signing like Thornton or Filppula.

23 Apr 2018 04:20:53
Col: two 2nd round picks

NYI: Varlamov


Col: Markstrom

Van: Timmins.

23 Apr 2018 05:48:37
If sven can't get you timmins i doubt markstrom will lmao.

23 Apr 2018 08:04:04
Hahahaha. Colorado laughs at the Vancouver one.

23 Apr 2018 11:10:41
Timmons won’t be traded for anything short of a gross overpayment.

26 Mar 2018 16:11:00
Col: Wilson, 2nd Nash 2018

Tor: Bozak and JVR

Sign and Trade

Bozak 4 x 4.5
JVR 6 x 6.5

Avs have the çap room and are on the up and coming. It keeps JVR and Bozak together and Bozak went to university of Denver.

26 Mar 2018 20:02:17
Um going to take more from Colorado to get that Lol.

26 Mar 2018 21:28:54
Theyre both UFA so why give up assets to get them. Why not simply juat sign them when you can during te summer.

27 Mar 2018 01:42:45
To avoid a bidding war and get them for like 5 mil instead of 7 ( JVR )

27 Mar 2018 04:48:16
But they are UFAs. Why would they sign for $5M when they could sign for $7M. It's not like they're stupid and don't know they are UFAs 😳.

27 Mar 2018 06:17:29
Hope they're idiots and pull some trickery or what.

27 Mar 2018 16:43:04
JVR is not leaving a team on the upswing like Toronto where he is happy, has lived a long time, ties to the community and are poised to start winning, to take a big discount somewhere else. If he’s willing to leave that much cash on the table he would just stay. He’s not getting days away from UFA to do the leafs a favour by letting them profit by picking his next team and salary elsewhere haha.

27 Mar 2018 19:14:58
The team that acquires their rights gains leverage on their next contract plus they have the ability to sign them earlier and to an extra year.

28 Mar 2018 10:25:23
Not sure signing an 28 year old winger to an extra year is considered and advantage. With that age you try for the less years as possible. You don't want to give 8 years at 7 million until he's 36. You want to sign him to 4 years at 6-7 million hoping well be worth it until he's 32. Obviously that don't always work but 6 years (34 when its done isn't terrible, but until he's 36 is almost brutal because those last 4 years are likely to be around 30-40 points from JVR which is too much at 7 million.

26 Mar 2018 16:08:49
Col: C. Wilson, 2018 Nas 2nd

Tor: Bozak and JVR

Sign and Trade

Bozak 4 x 4.5.

21 Mar 2018 22:27:50
Colorado Signs:
JVR 7 x5yrs
J. Tavares 9x 6yrs

21 Mar 2018 22:57:53
Tavares will want 7 years and more money. JVR will probably get 6+ years.

21 Mar 2018 23:15:19
Lol. Terrible predictions.

21 Mar 2018 23:43:14
Yeah those seem a little low . Probably wouldn't be a bad spot for them both to sign though.

22 Mar 2018 01:51:48
Tavares is not taking less than 10mikl unless it’s like stamkos and it’s in Tampa, Florida or Dallas where the lack of state taxes makes up the difference. And he will get max years for sure. The JVR one might be close, I dunno if I’d sign him to that deal tho. Seems like one that could really backfire in a few years.

25 Feb 2018 13:09:06
Mtl:Pacioretty,Alzner(2 million retain),Danault,2 rd pick 2018


I know it's a big trade but not gets a guy who has proven he can play center at top level and is less then 23 and also a gòd top 4 D. Mtl trade a good winger who Columbus could really use and also a good top 4 D at a good contract with retention. Danault is a good replacement for Weinberg behind dmDuboisSecond round pivk is because of age difference

25 Feb 2018 16:57:29
lolllll nooo from montreal.

25 Feb 2018 18:06:22
Lol. What? Montreal can't say yes fast enough.

20 Feb 2018 20:43:14


20 Feb 2018 21:11:50
I don’t think Zadorov is enough on his own, but I don’t think Avs want to move kerfoot. Maybe something around Zadorov + tho. And is this just to try to ‘re-unite’ galchenyuk and yakupov like people have been saying for 5 years?! Teams may pay a steep price to bring in a friend or former teammate of their star player for hopes of instant chemistry, don’t see Avs trading a really good young player and a solid D to reunite a player with their 10th best forward tho lol.

20 Feb 2018 22:55:21
Personally don’t see them trading Zadorov straight up for him. At least not before makar and timmins are ready.

20 Feb 2018 23:47:18
no from montreal.

17 Feb 2018 19:07:38



17 Feb 2018 21:06:52
Looked it up, clost is an anagram of colt. clever.

14 Feb 2018 18:09:59
Oilers need a right hand damn who can play power play. Suggestions:
Oilers: RNH + Benning (maybe + 3rd Rd Pk)
Wild: Coyle + Spurgeon or Dumba
RNH would be a perfect for the wild. Their current centremen: Koivu and stall (both older and trending down, especially koivu) and coyle who is a good 3rd line centre, and EK who is young.
Spurgeon would look great with Sekera. Coyle 3rd centerman after McDavid and Drai.

Another option:
Oilers: Klefbom or RNH
Avs: Barrie
I believe that Avs have some good young right handed dman coming up. Barrie could be on his way out. They could use Klefbom on the left side. Or maybe they could use RNH on the second line after Macinnon. I prefer the Klefbom and Barrie’s swap.

14 Feb 2018 21:16:08
Sorry, Trade 1 Way OTL. None of those Wild players are an upgrade for Edmonton. Benning + 3rd for ONE of those players is probably more realistic.

Trade 2, No RNH but Klefbom for Barrie sounds realistic if the Av's put a high pick in to offset Klefbom's longer term cap friendly contract. or perhaps Edm would be content if the Av's ate 1.4M of Barrie's salary so they cost the same and edm takes the asset loss of the extra years of cap friendly service to fill the RHD need.

14 Feb 2018 22:01:00
So Spurgeon or Dumba are not an upgrade on Benning? Go and search the players playing time and stats, and then decide. Oilers need a power play dman.

14 Feb 2018 22:19:53
Pretty good. I think the RNH for Barrie one is pretty close. I think oilers might have to add a bit to klefbom just based on recent play, I think his value has taken a bit of a hit. Although 5 more years of control on klefbom at 4.1 mill vs 2 more years at 5.5 for Barrie may be enough to balance that out.

14 Feb 2018 22:24:58
You’re ridiculous FT4A. So Carrick plus a 3rd gets a top 4 dman or top 9 power forward? Or does it only work for Oiler players? How are these players not an upgrade for Edmonton? Please explain.

14 Feb 2018 22:30:40
Both defenseman are better offensively than anyone on the Oiler roster. Spurgeon or Dumba would fit nice on the Oiler blue line. Get your head out of your ass and realize they are bottom feeders in need for a change. A few very talented players, yes. After that you don’t have much of an argument.

14 Feb 2018 23:14:57
Jeez leafs why so angry
But ya if Edmonton could trade for Dumba that would be lit.

14 Feb 2018 23:20:38
I don’t think the aves would be interested in RNH, they have McKinnon and next year Jost. I’d say they have a pretty good 1-2 punch now and Hopkins is expensive 3rd liner. Value wise it’s pretty good just don’t see the need for aves. Also I’m positive I’m not the only one thinking this but LBRN needs to get a clue! You’re such a oilers homer it’s crazy.

I understand you’re a oilers fan and no one wants to see their team lose a trade but your opinions are just ridiculous! You need to stop watching hockey if you think that Benning and a 3rd will be you dumba or Spurgeon.

14 Feb 2018 23:30:34
RNH > Coyle
Benning + 3rd.

14 Feb 2018 23:31:00
Personally I think the left hand versus right hand defenseman argument is overrated one of the best defensive teams in NHL history had 5 left-handed defenseman in one right handed guy who was a spare part.

14 Feb 2018 23:33:38
Benning + pick / add for any ONE of the Wild players mentioned is a reasonable parallel trade. All those wild players are pretty average at best, but so is Benning.

Unfortunately as soon as you try to name RNH in the trade the VETO / Abort button lights up and gets hit. You will have to name a different player in the trade other than him.

As explained in a previous post that it seems mr/ ms Leafs17 for some reason still can't grasp the concept of is he is a core piece that plays hard minutes in all the difficult situations, is long term signed, is a fan favorite, is only 24 with 441 games of experience already.

Most importantly. The GM would probably lose his job trading him as he is on VERY thin ice over the Eberle asset liquidation last year. The teammates, GM, and coaching staff are all on record emphasizing how valuable RNH is to the team so throwing him in for a few average players back won't cut it.
It is doubtful he will get traded unless an elite #1 D-man is dangled of which Barrie, Spergeon, and Dumba are definitely not.

Trade 2

Oilers with the big $$ signings last year can't take on a Salary increase next season, so Barrie retention, or 2nd roster player (s) to offset the salary difference would need to be in the Klefbom for Barrie deal. This does sound like a realistic trade that might need a minor tweak.

I agree that Klefbom's poor play has diminished his value.

14 Feb 2018 23:44:28
Sorry McJ, FT4A has been trolling for too long. This is the same guy that values every oilers player above and beyond anyone in the league. Hopkins and Benning would require Karlsson just to get the conversation started.

15 Feb 2018 04:01:20
Who is FT4A? Leafs17, you got the wrong guy. How am I over valuing the oilers in this trade?
Plus, what the hell do u mean with your comments about karlson? I’m sorry man but you are making no sense here.

15 Feb 2018 04:14:32
Spurgeon and Dumba not being an upgrade on Benning is officially the dumbest argument of the week! Unbelievable. And yes leafs17, this is the same guy who said only way RNH could end up in Ottawa is if it was for Karlsson!

15 Feb 2018 05:12:23
FT4A/ let's be real now lost all credibility with that nonsense last year when Karlsson was a top 5 player in the league. Now he’s just making sure the credibility never has a chance to return.

15 Feb 2018 07:15:34
Sorry Oil fan, my comments were towards Let’s Be Real Now (FT4A) . Your proposals were ok. FT4A changed his name but still spews the same garbage. The veto comment is exactly the way FT4A would speak.

15 Feb 2018 14:11:54
Oh! Thanks for the clarification. Appreciate it!

15 Feb 2018 16:11:29
Not sure what an FT4A is. ? Is that special code for something?

Sorry if there is a disagreement from the Eastern biased peanut gallery over this, but realistically that trade won't go. Benning + pick for one of those players is a decent realistic trade. Trade listed improves Minni, but Edmonton loses big time overall.

If RNH is going to be moved, I suspect it would be a 2 or 3 asset by Edmonton for 1 asset back type deal netting a #1 Dman or 1st line player to compliment McD. Not for 2nd pair / 3rd liners. Edmonton already is loaded with those types of players.

15 Feb 2018 20:08:42
Wild and avalanche say no.

15 Feb 2018 23:28:54
So how is coyle/ Dumba/ Spurgeon not worth more then rnh they actually play for a winning team and have staal granlund koivu sucker suter praise nino (not attempting that last name) and still put up good stats. Edmonton sucks they have Mcdavid and drai but drai is way overrated imo so keep your garbage nobody wants em you will draft high again and lose because you’re a horribly managed team.

16 Feb 2018 00:14:31
FT4A is the name you used to use and aren’t man enough to admit it. You know this big guy. And yes, madeindade, chirello will just f it up anyway. Sit back and watch the show.

12 Feb 2018 21:34:23
Just a wild thought.

Waive Martin

12 Feb 2018 22:31:28
Don’t need a scoring winger in patches. That’s actually the last position leafs need help with, they actually have so much depth there that they already have guys asking for trades out.

You don’t trade a good top 4 Dmen for futures when you are entering the playoffs with a young team and you have no one for sure ready to assume that role.

Leafs are going to have to play Boston and/ or Tampa in best of 7 game series. We have loads of talent, but not many guys that are really hard to play against up front. If the return for a great penalty killing, hard nosed veteran forward who has played almost 20 minutes a night multiple times this season again teams top lines is a 3rd rounder, why the hell would you trade him?! Komarov has to stay unless a team that feels they’re a depth forward away from a cup wants to really over pay.

Waiving martin accomplishes nothing, Because his cap stays on the books anyway and no one will claim him.

13 Feb 2018 00:59:02
Why waive Martin tho.

13 Feb 2018 02:55:11
Hell no from mtl.

13 Feb 2018 18:26:30
Montreal hangs up the phone. after they are done laughing.

13 Feb 2018 21:35:37
Wow balsam, you didn’t even insult Marleau in that one. You’re growing lol.

14 Feb 2018 00:27:00
balsam only replies to leaf posts and it’s always something negative. It’s sad that the leafs have such terrible players yet do so well eh balsy?

08 Feb 2018 22:17:50
Skinner is now on the TSN top 40 trade bait list so here it goes

Col: Barrie

Car: Skinner

To me, the value is pretty fair even though Carolina doesn't need defenseman

09 Feb 2018 00:57:53
Value is fair but makes no sense for Carolina but it would make sense to a team like Toronto

2nd round pick

4th round pick.

09 Feb 2018 01:23:50
you explained why it's not believable in your post. value wise okay, but carolina doesn't need defensemen so why would they do this?

09 Feb 2018 01:30:52
yeah. i don't see a situation where they're trading for another Defence.

09 Feb 2018 01:58:55
I don't think they would want a D man back. They are looking pretty good on the back end and I would say they want pick prospect for forward depth.

09 Feb 2018 03:07:52
Not too bad value wise but Carolina doesn’t need D and they do need scoring. Doesn’t make a lot of sense.

09 Feb 2018 03:34:33
Value is there too bad Carolina has 0 reason to make this trade, as you said lol.

09 Feb 2018 05:55:39
Haha I like how somebody just only disagrees with my comments lol salty.

08 Feb 2018 16:56:58
N. Meloche + 3rd 2019 for E. Gudbranson

N. Zadorov + 1st 2018 + A. Greer for R. McDonagh

Colorado has a deadly defense in a couple years to pair with their budding offensive stars.
Vancouver gets a decent defense prospect and a decent pick for Gudbranson, probably one of the better packages they'll get offered.
Rangers get some great peices to retool. Zadorov is already a top 4 d man and Greer is showing top 9 potential. The pick is in a stacked draft. McDonagh is a borderline elite defenseman but I don't see them getting a much better package than this

08 Feb 2018 22:36:12
No from Colorado IMO.

03 Feb 2018 12:06:09
Sekera, Maroon

Tyson Barrie

03 Feb 2018 13:42:08
Definite no from Colorado.

03 Feb 2018 15:12:20
Might get you barrie's stick.

30 Jan 2018 03:25:40
Col: Landescog


30 Jan 2018 04:06:43
Is there a Carlson on Columbus that I don’t know about Colt? There used to be a Karlsson that is now in Vegas.

30 Jan 2018 10:07:43
it’s gabriel carlson.

30 Jan 2018 12:43:30
Oh thanks.

30 Jan 2018 12:45:44
Grabriel Carlson is one of the best defensive prospect in the league. I know this reply was meant yo make me look silly but you did that for youself bud.

30 Jan 2018 13:28:30
U also spelt landeskogs name wrong so perhaps leave it alone.

30 Jan 2018 15:18:41
“One of the best defensive prospects”. Lol are you serious? They’re are so many better better defense prospects.

30 Jan 2018 17:01:49
Colt you make yourself look silly in about 98% of the posts you make including your last comment lol.

30 Jan 2018 17:32:04
My reply was simply a question, no intentions what so ever.

26 Jan 2018 15:11:27
2018 1st (COL) + S. Girard + C. Morrisson for R. McDonagh

Pretty out there idea but I could see the Rangers entertaining an offer like this. Colorado would do this to get their staple on defense. In order for them to be a championship contender they need someone to play against top lines and right now I wouldn't trust anyone except maybe Johnson to be able to consistently play against top lines. They have enough young peices to afford to lose these ones

26 Jan 2018 15:42:11
Way too much, tbh.

26 Jan 2018 16:24:56
Girard has been hugeness for the Avs so he'll no from Colorado.

26 Jan 2018 18:11:39
Ok but is the idea ok? Maybe replace Girard with Zadorov?

25 Jan 2018 17:48:00
Col:MacKinnon,cap dump

Mtl:Price,Patches,Mete,Lekonen,2 rd pick 2018,Byron

25 Jan 2018 18:02:46
Bro what.

25 Jan 2018 18:04:50
After waiting 3-4 years, he has just established himself as one of the best players in the game. They aren’t moving him now lol.

25 Jan 2018 18:21:56
Hahahahaha man but like why would Montreal even do that.

25 Jan 2018 18:43:42
As much as I like price I don’t see why aves would trade their top centerman whose young and if he keeps up the scoring pace is on arguably one of the best contracts in the league. McKinnon is more valuable to the aves than price would be them, especially now that duchene is gone.

25 Jan 2018 18:57:18
Lol. why the hell would Habs trade both Price and Patches plus 4 other peices for MacKinnon? Yes he is good. but ya can't trade your most importan't peice in Price.
And who is this cap dump? Better be Barrie. and more.

25 Jan 2018 22:17:30
No from Colorado
Mac is a franchise plauer and is just 22.

25 Jan 2018 15:35:33
Phi gets Bobby Ryan, Zack Smith
Ott gets Ryan O'Reilly, Jordan Weal
Buf gets Travis Sandheim, Phi 2nd

Ryan will be inspired in Philly, provide extra scoring for playoff push. Smith provides playoff grit.. Ottawa reunites Duchene and O'Reilly who were at one time dynamic in Colorado. At the very least they will be very strong on faceoffs to help boost their sad puck control. Buf gets high end D prospect and a pick and rids themselves of long expensive contract from previous management. Ottawa future plans not affected much as they replace Ryan's contract with O'Reilly's.

25 Jan 2018 15:56:06
So Philadelphia trades Weal (6 G, 8 A in 42 GP $1.75MM until 2019), Sanheim, and a 2nd for Bobby Ryan (6 G, 13 A in 36 GP $7.25MM until 2022)?

Ryan's contract is pure cancer and he leaves a lot to be desired as a player - inconsistent, injury prone, lacking in intensity. The Senators are stuck with Ryan for a long, long time.

25 Jan 2018 17:28:06
Lolllllll Ottawa literally robs everyone.

25 Jan 2018 18:13:46
And buffalo trades oreilly for Sanheim and a 2nd?! Ok.

25 Jan 2018 21:44:12
Philly gets Zack Smith too.

25 Jan 2018 21:45:43
I'd say weal goes to buffalo instead with a 3rd and that 2nd goes to ottawa, the rest sounds good though.

Easy E I honestly think you need to do some research before commenting from now on.

Bobby Ryan -
You say injury prone - lately yes

Lacking intensity - sometimes yes sometimes no he's like kovalev

Inconsistent - not even close, outside of last season when he was plagued by health issues and injuries he has been a 60 point per year player and will be again when he gets by his soft hands.

25 Jan 2018 22:24:12
NBR, Ryan sucks. Get over it.

30 Jan 2018 10:43:55
TSS, you know Ryan does NOT suck. If he sucks then so do guys like toews Duchene turris marner voracek Schwartz etc as his stat totals are in the same ball park so you tell me. do they all suck to?

24 Jan 2018 17:00:29


24 Jan 2018 17:20:21
No way Colorado breaks up Landy-Mack-Rantanen. they're playing so damn good.

24 Jan 2018 17:48:33
this has to be habs.

24 Jan 2018 19:00:16
That was quite funny. Patches + Julsen for Landescog makes zero sense! First, the Habs needs a center and second, I wouldn't give Patch alone for Landescog much less with Julsen.

26 Jan 2018 20:36:14
I wiuldnt do that trade. mtl gives up another young d-man? Burnt before. Not worth it.

20 Jan 2018 05:09:36
This one just popped up in my head and I think makes since

Toronto- werenski

Columbus- 1st round pick 2018


Toronto- zadorov

Colorado-kapanen, 3rd round pick

: Toronto gets 2 great young defencemen and still doesn't quite fill the number 1 role that gives them a solid top 4

20 Jan 2018 05:17:03
1st for a future #1 d man (already top pairing d man), definately not. Werenski is a star in the making, it’ll take Marner or Nylander to pry him away.

20 Jan 2018 06:42:39
Are you nuts?

Have you watched hockey?

My god.

Toronto fans.

20 Jan 2018 06:45:23
To the first one, As a leafs fan, I say “let’s do it! ”
As a rational hockey fan I say “get real”

The second one might be decent value because zadorov is an NHL Dman and kapanen is probably a middle six forward on a lot of teams. I just think there’s plenty of other D I’d rather pursue if I’m Toronto and willing to part with a good young player and a pick.

20 Jan 2018 08:12:28
It sure makes sense, yes. Just for TOR tho.

20 Jan 2018 08:57:29
I could be wrong hammer but I’m going out on a wing here and going to say a flames fan posted that.

20 Jan 2018 11:52:10
That’s a type of dman the leafs would consider trading Marner/ Nylander for not Dougie Hamilton.

20 Jan 2018 16:51:00
Oof, hell no from Columbus.

20 Jan 2018 17:29:16

15 Jan 2018 19:31:13
Tyson Jost
Nail Yakupov


15 Jan 2018 19:34:16
This is funny only because yak is in it.

15 Jan 2018 19:34:43
Big yes from mtl!

15 Jan 2018 20:58:24
Come on man, Let's be real now.
Why would Colorado even consider this for one year of Pacciorety? Let's be real now, You have the funniest ganame maybe ever on here.
MontrealsFinest is still the legend.

15 Jan 2018 21:28:16
The realism of the situation is that Colorado is right on the playoff cusp and Paccoretti could be the push needed to get the Av's to the playoffs THIS YEAR. Paccoretti has this year and next so we can call it a year and a half on his contract.

So short answer. Avs would consider this because they want to get into the playoffs this year.

15 Jan 2018 21:42:54
Colorado blocks all 173939020 of Bergevins numbers.

15 Jan 2018 22:15:50
Lets be real now the next FT4A?

15 Jan 2018 22:54:49
Colorado 100% should not make this and your reasoning for making the playoffs this year is irrelevant. They aren’t going to win this year so why give up young assets especially prized ones like Jost.

16 Jan 2018 03:38:01
Morgan Rielly isn’t a fair comparison to Faulk a better one would be Erik Johnson.

16 Jan 2018 06:55:37
montreal would take this and run. colorado would block montreal's number. hell no dude. patches is not worth that!

16 Jan 2018 16:35:16
I think you’re on the wrong rumour, Nylander lol but I will quickly respond anyway, Rielly is probably pretty close comparison. We think of rielly as being better because he’s so much better than the rest we have, but just because Faulk is one of many good D on the canes, doesn’t mean his individual value takes a hit.

So consensus is Montreal fans LOVE the trade and jump at it, and Non Habs fans say Habs have add to the deal to get Jost, and for Colorado to dump yakupov whom the habs have shown an interest in the past.

Sure is a Tough crowd on this site.

Ok so what do YOU all think needs to get added by Montreal to attain Jost's 8 point performance so far this year for a proven sniper who's having a little bit of an off year with 25 pts?

Of course Montreal fans love the trade because they are winning it. Lol. Common sense is hard hey.
