“He has said in an interview with Adrian Dater, who’s a local reporter down there in Denver, that last year he wouldn’t waive his no-trade clause to move, but this year, the final year of his contract and possibly his career, he will consider doing it,” Elliotte Friedman said on Hockey Night in Canada’s Headlines segment. “And the word is if he does want to go the Colorado Avalanche will search the market and see what the options are for Iginla to go chase the Cup one more time.
“But one thing I kind of did realize was that if Colorado is going to trade somebody, the name that a lot of teams want to talk about is Tyson Barrie. Now I don’t think Colorado is there yet. But he’s a restricted free agent at the end of the season with arb rights, and some teams can see how this might end up being a problem for the Avalanche.
If it’s true and Matt Duchene is available, the Leafs should be all over the Avalanche in trying to make a deal. The Avs need defence badly. I’d move Dion Phaneuf and Kadri for Duchene in a heartbeat and even eat a little salary if need be. Would you do that? Would Joe Sakic?
Avs would want Zibanejad and Chabot for Duchene. Duchene would bring the tempo and speed. Fit with Bobby Ryan.

I’d been hearing a few rumors recently involving the Avalanche, rumors of Sakic calling around the league to gauge interest in any possible trades to help his club, which entered Thursday’s road contest with the Boston Bruins at 5-9-1, just one point ahead of cellar-dwelling Edmonton in the Western Conference.
A trade of Ryan O’Reilly also could land a defenseman.

Terry Frei of The Denver Post wonders if the Avalanche and Coyotes could be working on a deal that would involve Yandle.
Avs were highly interested in Bogosian. ROR was an obvious bargaining chip. Unclear what happens to ROR, but they won't just give him away
