The Avs not qualifying him is certainly concerning - he has a history of concussion issues (missed the entire '10-11 season. I'd assume we wouldn't want to gamble on that, but some team will. He still has a lot of upside, but he needs to be healthy.

Or, maybe the Avs don't want to pay him the minimum qualifying offer of 2.5 million, and want to negotiate with him as a UFA for a lower price?

I would give him a shot at 2.5 million. He has good size at 6'2, 205 lbs. He had 20 points in 15 games before his concussion during the '09-10 season.

Didn't we do the same thing with Polak? (Or did we qualify him first?)
