<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>coga16</b></div><div>This confirmed what I Just said, that once they take care of their own they are right at the ceiling, its tight but not impossible
If Avs move a Donskoi, it does 2 things....cap relief while still brining some talent ot the NHL roster, a 2nd round pick doesnt do anything bc all they woudl do is go into UFA and spend 3m on a middle 6 fwd to replace them
and the guy they most likely move is Compher if not selected in the XD, Donskoi would need a decent return that helps the NHL roster as well for them to consider moving him. And in Buffalos case, probably would be Bjork they would need to get to make a deal work</div></div>
I could see a RHS winger-for-LHS winger happening this offseason. Bednar recently mentioned that he moved Compher back to C to get a LHS at LW so they're facing the right way, so handedness seems to be a consideration for him. And right now the Avs have a few too many RHS bottom 6 forwards, including Donskoi, Compher, Kaut, and O'Connor. Moving one of Donskoi or Compher for a LHS (like Bjork who you mentioned) could make some sense. Alternatively just have Seattle take Donskoi. Judging by Bednar's recent comments about Kaut he might be made available in a trade this offseason too.
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>DirtyDangle</b></div><div>hopefully ej waives or is traded or the avs are screwed.
g - grubauer
d - makar, girard, toews
f - landy, mack, rants, kadri, bura, nuke, +1 of donskoi or jost
i think the consensus is seattle will take graves but could opt for donskoi, compher, jost. if seattle takes jost it could be a bit problemtic for the avs as the extra cap space from the other options could be useful. if there's a deal to be made with seattle to take johnson or both graves and compher the avs should explore it.</div></div>
Jost will for sure get protected over Donskoi. He's younger, team controlled longer, is a C rather than RW, and has a much lower caphit. Donskoi is much easier to replace in UFA or via trade than Jost is.
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>ecupirate07</b></div><div>First off, thanks for the response. I admittedly haven't watched as much Avalanche as I would like as a Canes fan. Probably my 2nd favorite team.</div></div>
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>ecupirate07</b></div><div>What is Colorado's ED plan?</div></div>
Makar, Girard, Toews
Mackinnon, Rantanen, Landeskog, Kadri, Burakovsky, Nichuskin, Jost
Johnson waives or gets bought out.
Exposed: Francouz, MacDonald, Graves, Johnson, Donskoi, Compher, O'Connor.
Most likely Seattle will take Graves or Donskoi, which is absolutely fine as Colorado will need that cap relief next year.
