We released our first Avalanche trade board here at CHN.
Yesterday afternoon, the Avalanche waived Brad Hunt, in a somewhat surprising move.
The Avalanche went into Florida and beat the Panthers, but may have lost Erik Johnson in the process.
Andreas Englund stepped up with the injury to Johnson, and J.T. Compher continues to have the best season of his career.
