Sure fine, they do need more offense. So send down Barrie, and sit Kobasew and keep Malone AND Sgarbossa in the lineup. What the hell is Barrie doing just sitting in the stands as the 8th healthy D, after the two games he played? He needs to be getting playing time in Erie.

I agree with on Barrie. If he is not playing, he needs to be sent down. I prefer he stays and get experience.

Zach Boychuk on waivers. I'm probably overrating him a bit because he seems to beat Lake Erie all the time.

I'd say go for it. We are thin at wing right now and need an influx of skill. Boychuk might do that. If he doesn't he can always be waived again.

Agreed, may as well give someone a chance. Never know if they just needed a change of scenery.

Agree with the above...but the Avs almost never use Waivers to pick players up.

Well, they pretty much blew a year of Elliott's development last year, so they probably want to equal that out with Barrie this year.

Scouting report on him? I know he had some hype, but things aren't looking so well (I think).

Fast, good vision, average to above average shot, good hockey IQ, and tough are his good qualities. His bad are he is simply not strong enough to make a constant impact in the NHL at the moment, when he tries to play a physical game it is almost laughable, and lost defensively.

Basically right now he is a tweener with an upside of a 2nd line LW. Will never be able to play on a 3rd or 4th line effectively though.

Are you serious Bender? Hunwick's playing 21+ min a night? I mean I've watched every game so far, even the SJ that was blacked out in my area, but I didn't realize this....

Good lord Sacco/Whomever decides the min. per night for Defensemen...they've got to get their heads out of their *****, and I'm at work and for some reason, NHL.com is blocked, but if EJ is not playing MORE min than Hunwick, then that needs to change.

Through 3 games anyways. (1W -2Horrible Losses)

http://www.nhl.com/ice/playerstats.h...ewName=summary

EJ and Wilson both playing more than Hunwick...33 seconds and 6 seconds more respectively.

That's ridiculous (not you)...but EJ needs to be playing WAY more than only 33 sec more. At this stage I think it would be best for his development if he were consistently playing around 24-25 min a night.

Wilson played 24 minutes the other night, whereas EJ was around 21.

I don't have near the problem w/ Wilson as some others do...if he keeps his play simple, then he's more effective, and EJ needs someone on the ice w/ him to play those minutes. I don't have a huge problem w/ Wilson if he keeps it simple.

I'd take Boychuck, haven't seen him play in awhile but I like that type of player. Who knows maybe he can become grabner.

Totally hypothetical, but I could totally see the Avs going after Ov if he became available. Instant and easy marketing (which they blow at)

O'Reilly+Stastny+Siemens+, close?

Close to insanity.

That contract is ugly. $9.5M/year until eternity for a player that looks like he doesn't care anymore.

You could jump in a Delorean and bring back a 1985 Wayne Gretzky, and Stan the Man wouldn't pay $9.5M for him.

The Avalanche's defense needs a(nother) rebuild so desperately.

I thought management was going in the right direction by surrounding Erik Johnson with a bunch of big bodies (Jan Hejda and Shane O'Brien specifically), but what should have been a short term fix looks like Colorado's blueprint.
