Here’s a quick list of players I deem the most-likely players to be traded if the Avs look to add someone before the deadline. They are not ranked in order of most likely.

— Nikita Zadorov

— Chris Bigras

— Connor Bleackley

— Tyson Barrie

— Calvin Pickard

— Alex Tanguay*

*Tanguay is listed because he was a healthy scratch during the Kings game, and he hasn’t played well this season. Although, it’s probably his last season, so I don’t imagine he gets traded unless he wants to contend for one more cup.

First, what are the Colorado Avalanche looking for? The benefit of all the prospects listed above is that they can add almost any position if they were to trade one of them, as they pose no glaring holes if they were to leave the team.

Tyson Barrie is the only real threat there. So if he gets traded, the Avs better be sure that his absence won’t be missed, especially with respect to who they get in return.

But enough of that, here’s what I’m thinking:

Next: Calvin Pickard
