NHL Trade Rumors: Colorado Avalanche And Paul Stastny Involved In Rumored Deal
NHL Trade Rumors: Colorado Avalanche Making Major Changes
Gutsy, unexpected, something relating to the southern male anatomy that might not be suitable for print.
Okay, so maybe the hockey pundits didn't go that far in trying to explain the blockbuster trade that went down between the Avalanche and Blues over the weekend, but the deal that sent Erik Johnson and Jay McClement to Colorado and Chris Stewart and Kevin Shattenkirk to St. Louis was definitely a courageous move on both sides.
Now it's looking like Colorado isn't done. Adrian Dater of the Denver Post had an article today that the Avalanche are looking to ship out a center, possibly Paul Stastny. He cited a rumor of Stastny being part of a package going to Los Angeles for Jack Johnson, Jonathan Bernier and Jarret Stoll, but also writes he doesn't put much faith in that rumor.
But regardless, the Avalanche are putting it out there they are for business, and all of a sudden could become one of the sellers of this trade market. That's a big step for a team who some thought would take a step back this year but had some young pieces that were expected to continue to develop.
Now the playoff hero is gone (Craig Anderson), as well as its top rookie (Shattenkirk) and its power forward (Stewart). All signs that while the Avalanche are still young, there's still a lot of growing left to do.
It's a big step, but in which direction?
