Evan’s NHL Daily: Trade Candidates, Best and Worst Avalanche Drafts



nhl trade

There’s been a lot of front office and coaching movement the last few days in the NHL, but no real trades. That likely won’t change until the Stanley Cup is awarded, but Sportsnet released a list of players to watch on the trade market.

With the Avalanche, we took a look back at the best and worst drafts in franchise history.

All that and more in this Thursday edition of Evan’s Daily.

The Avalanche have had some good drafts, and some really poor ones as well. We took a look back at the best and the worst in franchise history.

On Thursday, we’ll begin our draft coverage here at CHN, starting with a player profile on prospect Calum Ritchie, who might be available when the Avalanche pick on June 28.

NHL Trade Chatter

Sportsnet released a list of 20 trade candidates this summer. Obviously, it would be a surprise if anywhere close to these 20 were traded, but there’s some pretty obvious ones on the list, as well as some surprises.

All I’m saying is that if Martin Necas is really a trade candidate, that’s a call the Avalanche (and most NHL teams) need to make. And is the summer John Gibson is finally moved out of Anaheim?

Pittsburgh: Whether the Penguins get Kyle Dubas or not, it’s pretty clear the ownership group in Pittsburgh doesn’t quite know what they’re doing.

Boston: The Bruins are dreading life without Patrice Bergeron, and they still don’t know if that life will begin next year.

Florida: Gus Forsling has been an unsung hero for the Panthers during their cup run.

Boston: What Bruce Cassidy learned from his Stanley Cup loss back in 2019.

Philadelphia: John Tortorella doesn’t agree with people blasting the Flyers for employing so many former players.

Washington: The hope is that new coach Spencer Carbery can gel with some of the youth on the Caps.

Nashville: Check out what some former teammates of Andrew Brunette had to say about him.
