Can't say I like this at all, but I guess (as everyone likes to point out) this is AGM. I don't think going big game hunting will solve the Avs' "problems", will only make them worse. Hall doesn't deserve 11M. He's only had 1 82 game season and if this season has taught us anything, is that cap space and depth pieces are needed to stay afloat when injuries happen. With only $360K in cap space, there's no room for injuries.
Here, you've got Burakovsky, being paid over 5M to be on the third line... Too much. The problem with him in Washington was being buried in their depth charts. Look at him now! He can take Hall's spot here, easily.
As much as I hate to admit it, I think the Avs are stuck with EJ and Zadorov will be the odd man out. Either by trade in the offseason or expansion. I think Graves can take over Big Z's role, minus the enforcer aspect but he can be physical at times.
Also don't think your dump trades are very realistic, unless you're playing Chel haha.
