Nathan MacKinnon Eyeing A Return To The Lineup

By Eric,

After missing 7 (soon to be 8) games with what's believed to be a shoulder injury, Nathan MacKinnon is eyeing a return to the Avalanche's lineup on Sunday against the Oilers. 

A Hart Trophy favorite before succumbing to injury, one wonders if Jared Bednar will reunite the electric trio of Rantanen-MacKinnon-Landeskog, one of the league's best lines pre-injury.

While they aren't a favorite to capture Lord Stanley's cup, their cup odds are looking like less of a longshot over at bookmaker (+4000). If you're keeping a close eye on bookmaker for 2018's cup, a gambler's opinion on this site may help you out. 

Considering they finished last in the league in 2017 and on the eve of this season starting they were +10600, it's time to take the Avalanche seriously.

I hope MacKinon is left exposed during the Seattle expansion draft.
