Avalanche’s MacKinnon leads race for Calder

The number of precocious newcomers to the NHL seems to increase annually, and that’s made handicapping the Calder Trophy race for 2013-14 more difficult than predicting exactas.

P-A Parenteau has made it clear he wants to stay in Denver

His name has been in trade rumours, but Colorado Avalanche forward P-A Parenteau has made it clear he wants to stay in Denver.

Do the Avs need to make a deal by the March 5 NHL trade deadline?

We know the Avs probably could use a good boost on defense. Should they trade a forward or some other asset to get a good defenseman for the playoff push?

It’s a question Avs vice presidents of personnel Joe Sakic and Roy will have to wrestle with. A forward such as P.A.Parenteau, maybe Jamie McGinn, could be dealt for a strong D-man. While this could happen, the Avs seem to be reluctant to do anything too dramatic with a team that has been so successful.
