Avalanche make offer for McLaren
According to TSN.ca the Colorado Avalanche have offered forward Alex Tanguay and defenseman Martin Skoula for Boston defensive holdout Kyle McLaren and forward Martin Lapointe.
Boston would dump $5,250,000.00 this season from Lapointe's contract, pick up a quality young defenseman for holdout McLaren, and obtain the playmaker it lost when Samsonov went down with a wrist injury. For Colorado, just the thought of a McLaren-Blake-Morris-Foote blueline is a scary one.
The Boston fan in me likes the trade, but the Sharks fan says this might force Colorado to purchase extra Stanley Cup polish this season.
