<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Foppa21</b></div><div>Landy has said he wants to stay in Colorado, so my assumption is that he'd give the Avs the chance to match an offer. I could obviously be wrong though.
As for the roster you're talking about, yeah, they have loads of cap room, but they gave up picking better players for no reason whatsoever (case and point being the DET, PHI, and LAK picks). They'll be decent defensively but will struggle offensively (2nd best forward being Gourde). In a terrible pacific division, they're probably a fringe playoff team at best. Vegas, Edmonton, and Vancouver will likely be better. So then they're stuck in the Calgary zone where they're mediocre and hoping for decent draft picks in the two strong draft years ahead. If they got Hamilton or Eichel, yeah, definitely a little more appealing, but if I were a UFA, I'd want to see those dominoes fall before I signed on the dotted line.</div></div>
The Avs clearly don't want to pay him what he's asking (rightfully so). Pretty obvious at this point he will not be an Av. Landeskog is clearly more interested in money than winning.
You're failing to take into account what type of deals Francis has in place for taking those guys. A lot left to unfold.
