REPORT: Nathan MacKinnon wants a long-term extension with the Avalanche

The Colorado Avalanche haven’t exactly proved that they’re willing to pull out their wallets when it comes to keeping their young stars in town — just ask Paul Stastny and Ryan O’Reilly. And whether letting those guys walk was the right decision or not, it definitely hasn’t sat well with a lot of Avalanche fans.

Nathan MacKinnon and the Sophomore Slump

The fabled “sophomore slump” is one of those media-driven narratives I mentioned in this post.

Colorado Avalanche: Nathan MacKinnon is rolling

Prized rookie starting to find the twine One year ago it was Seth Jones who was the presumed first pick in the NHL Entry Draft, not Nathan MacKinnon. The Avalanche took MacKinnon and Jones slid to the Nashville Predators at the fourth slot.
