Let’s talk NHL trade deadline. We’ll be talking all news, rumors and analysis that affects the Avalanche as the day goes on.
The Avs have sent Sheldon Dries, Andrew Aggozino and A.J. Greer down to the Eagles to make them AHL playoff eligible. Dries was immediately called back up.

The dream of Mark Stone coming as a free agent is dead. He already has an extension with Vegas
Stone’s AAV on an eight-year deal with VGK is $9.5M.— Bob McKenzie (@TSNBobMcKenzie) February 25, 2019
So Stone with an extension ends up costing the equivalent of Cale Makar + 2020 2nd + Calvert

Wayne Simmonds to Nashville
The full Stone deal. That is an incredible deal for Ottawa. Brannstrom is probably the 3rd best D prospect in all of hockey behind Quinn Hughes and Cale Makar.
Per @DarrenDreger, OTT receives Brannstrom, Oscar Lindberg and DAL 2nd round pick in 2020 for Mark Stone.— Bob McKenzie (@TSNBobMcKenzie) February 25, 2019
Mark Stone to Vegas is done. With an extension?
The Vegas Golden Knights are acquiring Mark Stone, and I am hearing an extension won’t be far behind. #VegasBorn — Jesse Granger (@JesseGranger_) February 25, 2019
A big time Central division deal
Mikael Granlund from Minnesota to Nashville for Kevin Fiala.— Bob McKenzie (@TSNBobMcKenzie) February 25, 2019
With one hour to the deadline, Vegas and Ottawa were working hard on a Mark Stone deal. Nashville was in there, too, and I think Calgary circled back. But the Golden Knights appeared to be the favourites. Let's see.— Elliotte Friedman (@FriedgeHNIC) February 25, 2019
Brassard to Colorado for a third, sounds like— Elliotte Friedman (@FriedgeHNIC) February 25, 2019
2 hours to go, LAK check in:— Dennis Bernstein (@DennisTFP) February 25, 2019
Jonathan Quick - not out of question he is dealt today but will not last in LA past this summer.
Tyler Toffoli - if dealt today likely would return 2nd round pick and prospect. Season knocked down value as the case all LA trade assets.
If that’s the price for Toffoli, Joe should be all over it.
