Bottom line is the Avalanche don't do this trade because it forces them to make a defensive move in free agency.
Its laughable to see that they are better shut down pair then Ottawa's just because the TEAM allowed less goals against. I'm not even arguing that Ottawa's shutdown pairing is better but thats just a terrible argument because there is so many other factors in goals against then whose shut down pair is better. And to that Montreal fan, Kuba-Cowen played together on the PK but never at even strength.
