Avs Mix it up


Recommended Posts

Mix, Mix, Mix


The Avalanche are trying to shake up their lines a little more. Just one game removed from sending 18-year-old rookie Mikko Rantanen to the San Antonio Rampage, coach Roy is at it again, this time it involves sending no one down.


The Avalanche will get Tyson Barrie back from a 3 game suspension, It looks so far like Barrie will skate with Nick Holden while the other two D pairings stay the same,


Reto Berra will get his second start of the season, even tough he has played just two games and a period... Berra leads the NHL with 0.85 Goals Against and .975 save percentage, Reto is 1-1-0 with 1 shutout. 


The Avs will start their three game road trip against the 4-3-1 Florida Panthers who just lost Aleksander Barkov to a broken hand, but the Panthers have plenty of talent to not be too concerned with his loss. 


Expected line combinations against Florida:


Gabriel LandeskogNathan MacKinnonJack Skille
Dennis Everberg
Matt DucheneJarome Iginla
Alex Tanguay
Carl SoderbergBlake Comeau
Cody McLeod
John MitchellMikhail Grigorenko


Francois BeaucheminErik Johnson
Nick Holden
Tyson Barrie
Nikita Zadorov
Nate Guenin


Reto Berra
Semyon Varlamov

I agree, it is weird to see Skille up top, however, Roy is known to put 3/4 guys on 1/2 lines. With the Avs playing the way they are and Pickard playing well in the AHL I could see him being called up..... IF*** Roy was not the coach. We wont see Pickard unless Varlamov or Berra are injured on the Avs sink 10 straight. Well on our way down 3-0 to Florida in the 3rd.
