Multiple NHL insiders are reporting that Canadiens’ GM Marc Bergevin could be “contemplating a trade” with the Avalanche. The lead the Montreal Canadiens built at the start of the year is starting to crumble a little bit. With one win in their last seven games, a 3-6-1 record in their last 10, and a 4-0 shutout defeat against the Bruins on Sunday still lingering, it’s not a surprise the jitters are alive and well in Montreal.

Lightning strike thrice, beat Avalanche in overtime

Lightning strike thrice, beat Avalanche in overtime

Colorado delivers yet another loss to their hometown crowd despite a furious third-period comeback. Even in a historically bad season, the Colorado Avalanche still play some of the most effective and exciting six-on-five hockey of any team in the NHL. Matt Duchene capped off a valiant third-period comeback with a last-minute, game-tying goal, only to watch the Tampa Bay Lightning take the game during the subsequent overtime. Tampa thoroughly dominated the first 40 minutes of this game, putting 30 shots on net through the first two periods. Fortunately for Avalanche fans, they would only...

Avalanche shock the world, beat Carolina 2-1 in overtime

Your eyes do not deceive you. After four difficult losses on their long east coast road trip, the Colorado Avalanche came away with an overtime victory tonight against the Hurricanes of Carolina. Mikko Rantanen scored the game winner to cap a truly impressive game playing on Matt Duchene’s wing. After being shut out the previous four periods, the Avalanche exploded in tonight’s opening frame for a 25-shot-attempt first period. The 16th of these shot attempts would prove to be the most effective of the lot, a laser off the stick from Tyson Barrie, created by an up-ice pass from John...

Behind Enemy Lines: Struggling Colorado Avalanche on the verge of major changes

Behind Enemy Lines: Struggling Colorado Avalanche on the verge of major changes

The last place team in the NHL visits Raleigh for the only time this season Well, there is really no sugar-coating it: the Colorado Avalanche have been the worst team in the NHL this season. It’s not even close. Their 32 points are the worst in the league and they are a full 15 points behind the Arizona Coyotes for the coveted 29th place in the NHL standings. That being said, that doesn’t mean this is a team devoid of talent. Young goal-scorers Nathan MacKinnon, Gabriel Landeskog and Matt Duchene are part of a younger core, which also includes defenseman Tyson Barrie, that could prove...

Worst Colorado Avalanche Trades

With all the rumors and reports of Colorado Avalanche general manager Joe Sakic trying to find a market for a few pieces of the Avs roster — namely Matt Duchene and Gabriel Landeskog — we thought we’d re-publish this from The Hockey Writers Archives. Written by former THW contributor Kevin Goff and originally published March […]

Game 56 Preview: Avalanche @ Hurricanes

Game 56 Preview: Avalanche @ Hurricanes

After getting blanked by the Sabres, the Avalanche (15-38-2) head south to take on the Carolina Hurricanes (24-22-7). The Avalanche continue to sink to new lows. Thursday night the Avs threw together a disorganized outing and were dominated by the Sabres in every facet of the game. The Avs will be right back at it Friday against a team they have been connected to a lot in trade rumors. The Hurricanes are loaded with young defensive talent and could use a solid offensive star like Matt Duchene. The two team seem destined to trade with each other, but have yet to find the perfect deal....

Adding another high priced forward should be low on Bruins priorities

Adding another high priced forward should be low on Bruins priorities

Limiting future flexibility and ice time for prospects could make it not worth the on ice impacts The Bruins have reportedly been in on acquiring either Gabriel Landeskog or Matt Duchene from the Colorado Avalanche, with Don Sweeney spending a whole intermission talking to Avs GM Joe Sakic. Eschewing looking at the on ice play of Duchene and Landeskog, let's just focus on their impact on the salary cap both in the now and in the future. Here are a list of Bruins forwards under contract (or RFA’s pending extensions that can happen this season/offseason) through 2018-19 David Krejci - UFA...

What would it take to get a deal done with the Avs?

Duchene? Landeskog? You won’t like the price. You’ve read all the rumors. Duchene. Landeskog. Carl. OK, I made the last one up. But I can dream! We’ve discussed potential trades with the Avs for a while now, but haven’t gotten a Rocky Mountain perspective. We reached out to our friends at Mile High Hockey to get their thoughts on a potential deal for Matt Duchene or Gabriel Landeskog, and Ryan was nice enough to respond. If you want either of those guys in black and gold, you probably won’t like the ask. SCOC: Of the big names being rumored to be on the block (Duchene,...

2017 NHL Trade Deadline Target: Can the Habs acquire the speedy Matt Duchene?

2017 NHL Trade Deadline Target: Can the Habs acquire the speedy Matt Duchene?

A highly skilled centre might be exactly what the Habs need at the deadline. Marc Bergevin isn't one to shy away from making noise on the market. With the addition of Alexander Radulov in the off-season, Montreal’s offence has looked threatening at times, but has been lacklustre in the second half of the season. With the trade deadline looming, the Habs could use a top-six centre to improve their offence and bolster their forward corps. While Bergevin stated yesterday that elite centremen simply weren’t available, Matt Duchene is one candidate widely reported to be on the market who...

Would the Montreal Canadiens consider trading Alex Galchenyuk for Matt Duchene?

Would the Montreal Canadiens consider trading Alex Galchenyuk for Matt Duchene?

It was just opinion, but Elliotte Friedman brought forward the idea. Elliotte Friedman is usually someone who has a very good reputation of breaking would-be trades and speculation in his 30 Thoughts column. Today, however, he starts off not with a rumour, but just an idea. The Montreal Canadiens could swap Alex Galchenyuk to the Colorado Avalanche for Matt Duchene. I want to re-iterate what Friedman says and that this is his opinion only, and not based on anything he has heard. Friedman suggests that the certainty of Duchene’s contract ($6 million AAV for two more...
