New Avalanche GM Patrick Roy will be talking to other GM’s about trades. Roy has told Joe Sakic that they should study the possibility of trading their first round pick .
From Joe Sakic:
“We haven’t decided what we’re going to do in the draft. We haven’t decided which player we’re going to take at No. 1. We haven’t decided if we’re going to take a player at No. 1. There are lot of options we can discuss, and we will be discussing”,
“We’re not set in stone with what we’re going to do. We might take the first pick, we might take the second guy or we might not. That’s the exciting thing about having the first pick, especially this year.”
If the Avalanche decide to trade the #1 pick they will be looking for a Stud defenceman if they feel Seth Jones is not the player they want. They will also be looking at #1 goalies i.e. Ryan Miller.
