Why Evan Rodrigues signing with Colorado makes sense
Even though Evan Rodrigues signed for less than what was expected.
Rodrigues, 29, signed a one-year, $2 million deal with the Colorado Avalanche.
This contract give Rodrigues the chance to have a great year with a skilled team and produce some points to hopefully land a long-term deal he seeks next summer.
Evan Rodrigues has the ability to move around in the lineup so you can expect him to be a third line player but move into first and second line roles when injuries happen, which should help him on the scoresheet.
