Bottom line is the Avalanche don't do this trade because it forces them to make a defensive move in free agency.
I think they were using Kuba-Cowen. And Cowen had a pretty terrible last half of the year and a brutal playoffs as a rookie. He's got really good potential though.

O'Byrne has been very useful for us and don't need to trade him for a 2nd/3rd line forward, which we already have a bunch of.
