Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Mark Kiszla of the Denver Post,
Hey, didn’t you used to be the Colorado Avalanche? If the forgotten team in Denver sports wants back in the conversation and back in the Stanley Cup playoffs, start here: Trade center Paul Stastny.
We look at the Avs now and yawn. This is not all Stastny’s fault….
What Colorado needs is a rock-solid goalie the Avs have been missing since Patrick Roy walked out that door eight long years ago.
So how does trading Stastny for Los Angeles goalie Jonathan Quick strike you?
Should the Kings, definitely in the market for a top-level forward, be reluctant to part with Quick, then maybe they would deal Jonathan Bernier, a former first-round draft choice who has shown great potential.
If Avalanche general manager Greg Sherman has not already been on the telephone with Kings management, then he should consider this the best free advice received all year.
