Default OT- NHL Draft (Avs pick #3)

Already some rumors the Avalanche will trade down a couple spots if they can get rid of Smyth's contract. They are talking with the Kings and Atlanta for flipping picks and dumping Smyth.

http://insidepittsburghsports.com/st...rashers/13359/



NHL Draft
1. New York Islanders- Tavares
2. Tampa Bay Lightning- Victor Hedman
3. Colorado Avalanche- Matt Duchene
4. Atlanta Thrashers- Evander Kane

Why would say the Broncos are becoming hard to follow when the topic is about the Avs?

If Hedman goes #2, then it's likely the Avalanche get Tavares.

If Duchene goes 1st, Tavares will go 2nd, just not necessarily to Tampa.

Why would they trade down?? Doesn't make any sense to me!! The Avs are desperate for good young talent and those top 3 guys are a sure thing from what i've been hearing!! I heard they are shopping Liles and Hannan also!!

Need to dump salary, you guys are right at the cap.

Lots of other teams will be doing the same shortly.

Also I saw on Hockeyfuture boards, that the cap is only going up 100,000 dollars. Pretty much staying the same, it will drop at some point.

Heard a rumor Kroenke doesn't have the cash. Who knows for sure though.

I honestly don't know. Dean Lombardi is so unpredictable and nobody knows. He could trade up/down or trade it in a package for Heatley (unlikely). There's a lot Dean could do. He's pretty locked in when it comes to trades and draft.

I would hope we take the swede...Magnus Paajarvi-Svensson. He reminds me of a Bure/Forsberg type. We also need a left-winger.

What about Delmas? Heard he got traded to Quebec Ramparts, where Roy is coaching.

He was also Bernier's backup for a couple seasons in the QMJHL.

From what i've heard we're in the talks of bringing a Swede in, suppose to be pretty good, Gustavsson(sp?) i think his name is. I guess the Avs and Roy have been talking to him...

edit: he's a FA!

I've heard he likes Co because of Forsberg, hopefully Peter can convince him to sign.
