  You certainly can’t blame Francois Beauchemin for taking the deal. In 2015, the Colorado Avalanche put a three-year, $13.5 million contract offer in front of him. Not only that, the Avs threw in a nice sweetener to the then-35-year-old defenseman: a no-move clause. For the next three seasons, Beauchemin could guarantee to himself and his family Denver would be his home if he...
