MacKinnon No Longer Considered Untouchable

Recommended Posts

While the Avalanche trade rumors focused on Duchene and Landeskog, reports suggest they would at least listen to offers for MacKinnon.


For months, the Colorado Avalanche trade speculation focused upon center Matt Duchene and left winger Gabriel Landeskog. Center Nathan MacKinnon was considered among their few untouchables.


But according to the Edmonton Journal's Jim Matheson, the Avs could listen to offers for the 21-year-old MacKinnon. He said some pro scouts believe they'll entertain trade proposals for everyone but rookie winger Mikko Rantanen.

That would mean a significant shift for the Avs, perhaps even a sign of just how desperate management has become to find a suitable deal to reverse their fortunes. For the first time in MacKinnon's four-season NHL career, he leads the Avs in scoring (51 points) and could be considered their franchise player.
