Grading the Colorado Avalanche’s free agency

The first week and a half of the free agency period for the Colorado Avalanche has been intriguing, to say the least. Just over a week ago, as the July 1st deadline approached, there was a growing concern that Paul Stastny was going to be lost to another club. Would the Avs surprise everyone and re-sign him? If they didn’t, whom would they get to fill the void left in his absence...

Montreal robbed Colorado in swapping Daniel Briere for P.A. Parenteau and a 5th

Here’s the thing with Danny Briere: he’s not very good any more. I have a ton of respect for his talent, his career, and the man he is, but as far as being an effective NHLer goes at age 36 (37 by the time next season starts), the reality is that it just ain’t there anymore. Briere is a guy who needs to play in the top-six with good linemates to be effective, and he was rarely...
