The Colorado Avalanche hire Nick Caughell as their new General Manager and he has wasted no time with a few Trades and Roster Moves:
Pierre Luc Dobois (COL 50% Retained Salary), Derek Ryan (COL Retained 1 Mil), 7th Round Pick
Ryan Lindgren, Erik Haula, Scott Walford (Prospect)
Andy Greene (COL 50% Retained Salary)
7th Round Pick
With an aging Defense Ryan Lindgren an up in coming Defenseman will likely round out the Top 4 in a years time. Haula comes in to solidify the Third Line
Andy Greene was traded as a Cap Move tho also to make room for Lindgren to play on the 3rd Pair.
Will there be more deals to come Nick Caughell had this to say: "We are not actively prusuing Trades at this time tho if something comes along that makes sense we will look at it - Going into Regular Season in a few days likely want to run with the Team we have for a bit to determine how everything looks in more meanful games....."
