So, the Avalanche ticked another RFA off the list today, signing oft-injured forward Vladislav Kamenev to a one-year, $750,000 Show Me contract.
A broken wrist his first game with the Avs his first year and a dislocated shoulder the second year have limited the 22-year-old Russian forward (he’ll be 23 next month) to just 26 games in his Avs career (two goals, three assists) since being acquired from Nashville as part of the Matt Duchene blockbuster.
It’s difficult to see where Kamenev fits in right now on the Avs’ depth chart, quite frankly.
The way I see it – this is just my opinion, mind you – the Avs’ lines look like this to me right now:
Landeskog-MacKinnon-Rantanen (yes, we know he’s unsigned)
