Over at Mile High Hockey, SBN's Avalanche blog, they're saying that they won't be surprised if Wojtek Wolski is a member of another team come 3 PM.
While many of the players rumored to be available for tomorrow's deadline skew towards old, underperforming and overpaid, Wolski just turned 24, is on pace to score 60 points and has a cap number of just $2.8 million this season. No wonder everyone and their brother is pitching trade offers for him on Twitter.
So what will the Avs command for Wolski?
Will the Avalanche just give Wolski away? Not a chance. But are they exploring their options right now? Absolutely. Wolski is young, talented, 3 years away from unrestricted free agency and is going to set a career high in points, goals, assists and +/- this year. Oh, and he's also a very capable center (arguably a better center than a left winger). His trade value is potentially at an all-time high right now, and Avalanche GM Greg Sherman would be crazy not to kick the tires on potential deals. The Avalanche are already a bit thin up front - especially on the left side - so the Avalanche would likely be looking to get a roster player back for Wolski (instead of picks or prospects).
