Schultz deal might complicate Avs’ talks with RFA Barrie

Defenseman Tyson Barrie might have been very happy when the news broke that Justin Schultz had agreed to a one-year, $3.657 million contract with the Edmonton Oilers.

With the Ryan O’Reilly contract saga over, Colorado will now turn its attention to another key unsigned RFA — Tyson Barrie.

What should the Colorado Avalanche do with Ryan O’Reilly?

So, you’re the Colorado Avalanche. You’ve just enjoyed a comeback season in which you won the regular season Central Division title and returned to the playoffs for the first time since 2010. You maybe got a little lucky with all that success, since your goalie posted a career year and you were the worst possession team to qualify for the post-season, which is probably why you...

Cooke helps turn tables in Wild’s favor in his return

Matt Cooke is perhaps best known for his controversial hits, like the knee-on-knee hit on Colorado’s Tyson Barrie that resulted in him getting a seven-game suspension.

Avs' to-do list taking shape

Changes will be made to the Avalanche's roster for coach Patrick Roy's second season with the team, but the changes probably will be subtle. Tinkering with the defensive corps will happen, but the forwards on the team now are likely to be the forwards you will watch next season. Starting goaltender Semyon Varlamov is a shoo-in to return, and Reto Berra is locked in for the...
