      Avs would likely prefer to lose Graves over Nichushkin. If we were talking about a prospect instead of Nichuskin, then yeah, there's probably a match there

      Doesn't have to be Nichuskin. Was just looking for cap relief for Colorado since Makar and Landeskog both need new deals. The central idea is to get rid of EJ for cap and expansion draft purposes, especially given what I see below.

      Avs aren’t getting rid of EJ so your plan doesn’t make any sense

      I've heard they've looked into it. Doesn't mean it'll happen, but it sounds like they're doing their due diligence.

      If EJ's hit is gone, then the world of possibilities expands astronomically. You wouldn't need to move anything else out as with his deal off the books in pairing with one of Compher, Graves, or Donskoi, you've opened up roughly $10 million on top of their expiring deals this year.
