2nd line

Created by: Cub19
Team: 2023-24 Colorado Avalanche
Initial Creation Date: Nov. 21, 2023
Published: Nov. 21, 2023
Salary Cap Mode: Basic
Description
With injury to Lekhonen we have 3 random players on 2nd line that don't even fit. Nuke has shown he can park in front of the net and score. Ryan johansen was cool to get but him and drouin need be traded.

Once kovalenko comes back he takes tufte spot put Tatar on waivers and then use tufte as 13th forward

Either that or go with olausson johansen tufte as 2nd line

They haven’t even played a 1/4 of the season, and you want to waive a guy on a $1.5M contract to that has struggled and is still on pace for 35points?🤦🏻‍♂️. TOR isn’t doing that not even close.

The avs don't even have a 2nd line. Avs need to get another top 6 player considering Lekhonen is gonna be out for a while.
Kovalenko ain't coming over till the end of the season and we still don't know how he will adapt to the nhl.
He could be a top 6 or he could be a top 9 player.

Everyone knows avs have a problem.

And what’s that problem? They are 5th in scoring and 13th in GA. Get real look deeper than RyJo isn’t scoring at a 1C level. If anything you can make a case that they need better goal keeping being 28th in save percentage. But no your solution is to trade for winger and make him the 2C, expect a guy coming off hip surgery to play wing and have an AHLer play on the 2nd line? Do you think that even if TOR were dumb enough to do that trade Nylander would produce the numbers he has with Kane and Tufte when he has played 80% of TOI with at least one of Tavares, Matthews or Marner? This goes to one of the issues I have with Bednar, he needs to get guys going like RyJo, Drouin and Tatar and instead of giving them some extended looks to let them get in a groove he goes to playing MacK and Mikko 20+ minutes a night. But pulling the plug 17 games in the season is the ultimate panic move.

Avs still need a top 6 forward. Drouin ain't cutting it. Tatar is more noticeable In a good way then drouin.

I'd rather see olausson or tufte play then drouin.

Well Tufte played and didn’t do ****. With Drouin you know you’ll get 40pts just based off of his career averages but dude has somebody living in his head rent free because he has an ass load of talent. But again you’re suggesting something they come back to that they already did that didn’t work. Do they need more from RyJo absolutely, but blowing up 15% of your roster and giving away productive players in the process is the most knee jerk reaction ever.

Lol tufte played like 17 games compared to drouin who already has like 500 games under his belt. Give tufte 10 games on the same line and see how he produces

I'm just saying 2nd line has no identity and Ryan johansen is only good for face offseason

There better dumping girard and johansen in offseason.
