Is free agent John Tavares a possibility or pipe dream for the Colorado Avalanche?

Question: Is free agent John Tavares a possibility or pipe dream for the Avalanche?

Kiz: Six NHL playoff games. Heady stuff. The Avs poured six shots of bourbon, set ’em on on the bar, and the party was back in Denver. I like it, I love it, I want some more of it. So how does Colorado become a legit contender for the Stanley Cup next year? Go get us a legit scorer to lead the No. 2 line, Joe Sakic. How about John Tavares? He’s 27 years old. He has scored nearly 300 NHL goals. He’s about to become a free agent.

Chambers: I believe the Avs will indeed deliver a solid pitch to Tavares, and I think the 2009 No. 1 overall draft pick — selected two spots ahead of Matt Duchene — will consider joining the NHL’s youngest team. It’s often difficult to lure Eastern Conference veterans west, because of the more difficult travel, but Tavares is all about putting him in the best position to win the Stanley Cup. Although the Avs certainly aren’t there yet, they have an excellent growth plate in place — partly because of the Duchene trade — and Tavares would work with Nathan MacKinnon and Colorado’s other leaders.
