Colorado Avalanche Poll - How Much Is Tyson Barrie Worth?

Earlier this week, Austin Manak made his Mile High Sticking debut by writing that the Colorado Avalanche would be wise to sign Tyson Barrie to a long-term contract. Barrie, a restricted free agent, is currently without a contract and the longer the Avs wait to sign him, the more we remember what the Avs went through with Ryan O’Reilly a few years ago.

Austin suggested a 6-year deal worth $22 million, putting Barrie’s cap hit at $3.67 million per year. While I love Austin’s suggestion and think it’d be great for the Avs if they could make that deal, I personally believe that the Avs are more likely to go with a two-year bridge contract worth around $2 million per year while I’ve seen others suggest that Barrie will only get $1.25 million on a bridge deal.

At 23-years old, Barrie is coming off a breakout season that saw him score 13 goals and put up 38 points in 64 games. He also led the team in plus/minus with a plus 17 rating.

So, Avalanche Nation, how much should the Colorado Avalanche pay Tyson Barrie?
