    It was a bad analogy because it wasn't an analogy.

    I would take a 3rd for Lizotte. I agree with his work ethic and the think I can comparison.

    Iafallo reminds me of the impact that Pascal Dupuis had playing with Sid. For some reason a certain mix of players have chemisty even though the talent levels are not on the same tier. Kopi put up 92 pts, his career best with Iafallo as his LW. He just does all the little things that go unnoticed so the big guys can do their thing. His biggest asset is that he can play a disciplined 200ft game. His scoring is trending up too, got to think he could hit 40pts this year which will be amazing for him...and his agent :)

    If your trading for him to be a line driver, you will be disappointed.

    Expect a 200ft player that can play in all situations, ideally middle 6 but can move up if needed and play with the top line, PK\PP and won't hurt you on the ice.

    Not sure what the purpose of 50% retain is, but i am also not against it.
    Anyways, the Kings picks are off limits. So Iafallo 50% for Col 1st would be a more than fair offer

    Quick would be your starter goalie.

    I love Lizotte because he’s all heart, but you don’t want him as a 3c. He’s much better as the plucky 4c that can cause chaos on the forecheck occasionally. Due to his size he does have some issues getting pushed off the puck in the offensive zone which hurts that lines scoring chances.

    Avs are tight against the cap, hence the 50% retention. If given a choice between a 3rd or 50% retention I'd take the 3rd.

    50% retention isn't even that much when you consider that only 22% of salary is due after the deadline. So 50% retention is basically only $247,500 in real salary retained (22% of 50% of $2.25m).

    Keep in mind that not a single player who was a pending UFA got a 1st at last years deadline. All the deadline trades involving 1sts were for players with term. Iafallo might be worth a 1st, but with only 5-6 1st round picks moved on average - and mainly for players with extra term, it might not be realistic to expect a 1st.

    No he wouldn't.

    Grubuaer is top 3 in every goalie metric this season, whereas Quick isn't even close to that level anymore.

    Makes sense. Thanks for the honest assessment.

    Well one of them is playing the Avalanche and one is playing for the Kings.
    Maybe that impacts those numbers?

    I don't think the guy meant any disrespect. Quick is on the downhill of his career. Looked great last night and is still capable of that but at this point Grubauer is more consistent.

    Still if i had to win a game/series id still take Quick 10/10 times way more proven. Quick has never had that good of a offense in front of him. He would win games like Kelly Hrudy did for the kings back in the day

    I agree that sv% and GAA can be very influenced by team defense. But there are also stats like GSAA and HDSV% that are a little bit less dependent on team defense and captures an individual goalies performance reasonably well. Grubauer is top 2 in both of those categories.

    Are the Kings not looking to re-sign him?

    Haven't heard. I would hope they would at least check in to see what Iafallo wants. Ideally they have a handshake agreement to sign a contract after the expansion draft

    No doubt...If we somehow make the playoffs and he pulls another 1.55GAA like he did against Vegas in the playoffs, we are winning the series with this current squad. Age\stamina is still a factor but competiviness and will are still in him.

    If LA make the playoffs as the 4th seed I'd almost prefer if the Avs finished 2nd and faced the Blues in round 1. LAK are just a terrible match for the Avs style-wise going back many years.
