He is 38 years old, has a no-trade clause and makes a lot of money. But Rob Blake would still be attractive to many NHL teams at the league trade deadline or sooner, and the former Avalanche defenseman said he would consider waiving his clause to go to the right team.
“(The Kings) would have to come to me first, but, yeah, it’s a possibility,” Blake said, after Saturday’s 3-1 Kings victory over the Avs.
Blake, who played with Colorado from 2001-04, is in the final year of a contract earning him $6 million. With the Kings having the worst record in the NHL, even after Saturday’s win, the team could become sellers by the Feb. 26 deadline. “Hopefully, we can turn things around here first, before any (trade) talk happens,” Blake said.
