I know it might sound far fetched with the way he left but the guy is in love with Denver. - Avs biggest need right now is a #2C. - They’ll have the cap room. - Matt stated many times yesterday how much he loves Denver. - His wife is from there - He wants his kid to be born there - He has a house there and spent a chunk of the offseason there. - Grew up a huge Avalanche fan - When he got traded he said he might be back one day. - He still communicates with most of the guys. Even when so far as to text them all individually last year including Sakic and the coaching staff to congratulate them on such. Successful year. Then to top it off, after the Sens got smoked by the Avs last night the dude sends out a tweet thanking the Avs fans and finishes it off by saying “Once an Av, always an Av”. That probably wasn’t loved by the Sens PR team. So yeah. Probably a bit of a reach considering how things ended. Probably not a direction either side wants to go. Especially if the Avs luck into Jack Hughes with the Senators pick. But who knows, would be quite the addition to a great young team.
