Columbus Blue Jackets and Patrick Roy: 3 things to know
The NHL coaching carousel is officially spinning. The Washington Capitals named Toronto Maple Leafs assistant Spencer Carbery as their new coach Tuesday and multiple reports have surfaced about the Nashville Predators replacing coach John Hynes with Andrew Brunette, the New Jersey Devils' associate coach who interviewed with the Blue Jackets. If and when the Predators confirm that, it will eliminate Brunette from a field of candidates in Columbus that includes veterans Peter Laviolette and Mike Babcock, associate coach Pascal Vincent, Calgary Flames assistant Kirk Muller and former Vancouver Canucks coach Travis Green.

Avalanche 2023 Free Agent Targets: Depth Forwards
Within the NHL's salary cap landscape, teams often try to mine hidden gems and identify potential bargain-value players during the annual free agent frenzy. After a season in which their hopes of repeating as Stanley Cup champions were partially dashed by a lack of depth, the Colorado Avalanche will have to enter the free agent market with an eye on shoring up their forward group beyond their stars. As the start of the 2023 NHL free agent period draws near, Avalanche management finds themselves in a prime position to capitalize on cheaper, undervalued forwards who support their core superstars in understated ways. The Avalanche can add depth, versatility, and a competitive edge to their lineup without breaking the bank, focusing on players who help facilitate offense beyond eye-popping boxscore totals.

Nuggets Owner Stan Kroenke on Verge of Historic Title Trifecta
Stan Kroenke has long long avoided talking to the media, resulting in his “Silent Stan” nickname, but the real estate mogul keeps popping up on camera at the biggest events in U.S. sports. That’s because his teams can’t stop winning. Kroenke has accumulated the most valuable portfolio of assets across team sports, and his clubs […]

3 Forwards the Avalanche Could Target in Free Agency
The news that captain Gabriel Landeskog will be sidelined for the entirety of the 2023-24 season was depressing for Colorado Avalanche faithful. By putting Landeskog on long-term injured reserve for the whole season, it allows for relief of his $7 million hit against the salary cap. The bad news is that Colorado only has 12 rostered players under contract next season, and only five of them are forwards. Forward depth was a concern last season and should be a priority going into this season.

Jets: 4 Trade Destinations for Pierre-Luc Dubois
The Winnipeg Jets' offseason could be full of drama. Arguably at the top of that list is restricted free agent (RFA) centre Pierre-Luc Dubois. Dubois is coming off his best season as a pro, where he posted career highs in both points (63) and assists (36). There have been plenty of trade rumours that have surrounded Dubois for the majority of his career, with all signs pointing to him wanting to be closer to his hometown in Quebec.

Blues' 3 Potential Free Agent Targets in 2023
The St. Louis Blues will be more active in trade talks than in free agency. The Blues currently have just over $7.5 million in salary cap space, per CapFriendly. This is a weak free-agent class, and the Blues would be wise to try and avoid it, but there are a few targets that make sense at the correct price. Despite post-deadline struggles and a tough series in the 2023 playoffs, J.T. Compher is still a good fit for the Blues.

Brad Hunt wins gold with Canada
It may not be the one everybody on the Colorado Avalanche team was looking for, but it's something! Brad Hunt and Team Canada won the gold medal over Germany in a 5-2 final Sunday. On a team which surely would've featured Cale Makar (who was left out due to the ongoing investigations over alleged Team Canada infractions in 2018) along with other Canadian superstars, they managed to get it done with some new faces - including former Avs prospect Justin Barron. Hunt's involvement with Canada helped them win gold, where he tallied up three assists in the 10 games of the tournament.

Avalanche Journal: Connor Bedard is in Central Division and Florida Panthers are in Stanley Cup Final thanks to this regular-season game
In this week's Avalanche journal, reflections on the Stanley Cup Playoffs and surrounding NHL topics as Colorado prepares to watch a Cup Final from home. A regular season game with all-time ripple effects: Pittsburgh vs. Chicago was a Game 82 for the history books in April. All the Penguins needed was to beat the tanking Blackhawks to reach the playoffs for the 17th consecutive season. Instead they unraveled in a 5-2 loss, allowing the Florida Panthers to sneak into the second wild card spot on the final day.

Avalanche Offseason: UFA's J.T. Compher, Evan Rodrigues looking for big deals on July 1
J.T. Compher was the ideal third-line center for the Avalanche's Stanley Cup run in 2022. On one hand, it would be great to have the pending unrestricted free agent return as as the center of line 3 while continuing to be the Swiss army knife that could be plugged into the top six when injuries arise.

Sampo Ranta signs in Sweden
Finally a scant pebble of news on the Colorado Avalanche offseason front, pending Restricted Free Agent forward Sampo Ranta has elected to sign a two-year deal in Sweden with SHL club MoDo rather than sign another contract with Colorado which likely could have included the arbitration process. An interesting wrinkle is that McDo General Manager Henrik Gradin also moonlights as an amateur scout for the Avalanche. Former prospect Josh Dickinson was the first to make the move to the Swedish club but also after he was traded to the Chicago Blackhawks organization. This likely signals the end of Ranta's ambitions with the Avalanche, though the organization should extend the qualifying offer and retain his rights for four years until Ranta turns 27.

The Red Wings Cursed the Avs
There's a lot of evidence here, and it has all the classic elements needed for a proper sports curse. Going into the 2002 season, the NHL's blood feud between the Colorado Avalanche and Detroit Red Wings was tied at two Stanley Cups apiece after Ray Bourque and the Avs claimed their second the year before. Colorado finished second to Detroit in the Western Conference the following season, and the two faced off in a Conference Final for the ages.

6 keys for the Avalanche offseason
As the sting of losing to the Seattle Kraken in Game 7 begins to wear off, the Colorado Avalanche have a busy offseason on the horizon after a very quiet month of May. At least 20 contracts will need to get signed in addition to any other trades or moves to bolster the roster for the 2023-24 season. Here are some objectives we'd like to see for the Avalanche to have a successful offseason. First and foremost a good four months of rest, recovery and training will do the members of the Avalanche well especially since it will be their longest offseason since 2018. Next event on the agenda for the organization is the NHL draft which will be held on June 28th and 29th in Nashville.

Opinion: Chris MacFarland's job is not safe
Colorado Avalanche General Manager (GM) Chris MacFarland is not safe in his job. In fact, no GM in their job is safe right now. This is due to the breaking news of Toronto Maple Leafs GM Kyle Dubas leaving his post. It initially seemed like a personal decision to go, as Dubas had suggested he would leave and not work anywhere else but Toronto.

Avalanche Offseason: Return? Retirement? Veterans have a decision to make
With the first-round series loss to Seattle in the rearview mirror and the 2022 Stanley Cup run beyond recent memory, the Avalanche enter a busy 2023 offseason with a lot to do. While it's not the most important part of their summer, general manager Chris MacFarland has five key veterans — four of which were part of the championship team — that all enter the offseason as unrestricted free agents. Each of the five, which includes Andrew Cogliano, Darren Helm, Jack Johnson, Erik Johnson and Lars Eller, are at different points in their career.

How much is Bowen Byram worth?
Simply put, Bowen Byram is worth a lot. Ideally this contract would be the first order of business for the front office in an expected busy summer of transactions ahead to lock in a big piece of the salary cap puzzle. For starters the Avalanche have $637k less cap space to work with next season because Byram earned three well-deserved bonuses in the final year of his Entry Level Contract and that salary cap charge will carry over. Despite still having a thinner games played resume than he would like, the fact that Byram achieved these milestones in a 42 game season worthy of triggering such lucrative bonuses in addition to finishing top five in goals per game, top 20 in even strength time on ice per game and top 35 in points per game among all NHL defensemen shows what type of impact he had and will surely become key negotiation points.

The Tampa Bay Lightning are heading into the offseason with limited cap space, and it could result in veteran forward Alex Killorn heading elsewhere.

Let's now discuss three specific potential free-agent destinations for the two-time Stanley Cup champion. The Detroit Red Wings are a team to pay close attention to this summer.

McCann back on ice, but not ready to return yet for Kraken
The Seattle Kraken welcomed leading scorer Jared McCann back to practice on Saturday, but coach Dave Hakstol doesn’t expect the forward to be available for Game 3 of the Western Conference semifinal series against Dallas on Sunday. McCann has been out since getting hurt early in Game 4 of Seattle’s opening-round series against Colorado on a hit from Cale Makar that drew a one-game suspension. McCann’s injury has not been disclosed, with Hakstol only saying that he’s working through his “injury protocol.”
