Dater’s Daily: Friedman Says Avalanche Looking For Center



Jonathan Toews nhl trade

A good Friday to all. Sunny and somewhat cold here in T-Town, temps probably in the high 30s. I was sick as a dog yesterday and missed the game. Still not feeling great, but better. I guess I picked a good game to miss, as the boys didn’t play too well last night, from what I read. The Avalanche get the 12-12-4 Nashville Predators tomorrow.

Let’s do some hockey notes, quotes and links from around the league to start the day:

  • Elliotte Friedman says the Avalanche are “looking for a center” (32 Thoughts)
  • Personally, I think Bo Horvat would cost too much in return. I’m still of the belief that a guy like Jonathan Toews is a more realistic trade candidate.

  • What are the Canucks looking for in a Bo Horvat deal? (TSN)
