It's still a business.

While I do believe the Avs will spend to the cap if nesscessary, I believe they will only do so for the right player. I don't see us willing to spend 5.5m on a huge question mark like Meszaros. We can't afford to start throwing money around.

Does it help at all that the cap hit is only $4 million?

Colorado's not near the cap so the cap hit is irrelevant. It's just bad financial management to take on most or all of Meszaros' cap hit.

No, salary is the problem. They have no cap concerns to speak of.

Bit off topic but I would love to see the Avs try and aquire Jared tinoridi. He would be a perfect top 4 LHD to play with EJ. I know he wouldn't come cheap but the defence would look a lot stronger with him in it

There's a Joni Mitchell "You don't know what you got 'till its gone" joke in here somewhere...

I'm not a huge fan of Johnny Malkin, but the dude finds ways to score (mainly because he never passes)

But as long as he keeps putting up points, I say we hang on to him for a little longer and hope his value rises a little bit.

Mezsaros looked absolutely awful last night. Pretty easily the Flyers worst player.

Its a shame. He was really good a few years back, and I had hoped he would rebound a bit. It is only one game, but h looked bad on the PP and in his own zone.

How did Torrey Mitchell get thrown into this?

He's on pace for 82 goals as our 4th line center.

No deal.

Colorado should just make deals for all the Mitchells.

John Mitchell 2
Torrey Mitchell

Flyers desperately need a decent third line winger. Talbot cost them the game last night.

That Kessel goal against the run of play was entirely his fault. Made the turnover under no pressure, then was lazy backchecking allowing Kessel to get to the rebound.

Not sure Johnny Malkin would help you not deal with the same thing. I just hope the Avs trade him while he's still hot.

2) goaltending (I am giving Mason and Emery the benefit of the doubt, but I naturally would want to upgrade if possible; P.S. I miss Bobrovsky)

MINOR
3) 3rd line LW

Mez makes too much money and takes up too much cap space to be a #4-5 defenseman. With Gill around and Gervais waived, we have 8 guys. Plus, this forward corps looks pretty badass:

Hartnell-Giroux-Voracek
B. Schenn-Lecavalier-Simmonds
Mitchell-Couturier-Read
Talbot-Laughton-Hall
Rinaldo, Rosehill (but whatever, they don't count)


I'd prefer to fill up the space and then trade to acquire another, healthier defenseman during the season. Or bank the money to see about a goaltender if both Mason and Emery crap the bed.
What kind of upgrade on D would Mitchell+ one of Aittokallio or Pickard be worth?
