Alex Tanguay: Traded To Avalanche Staff

Update: Tanguay (knee) and Cory Sarich were traded from Calgary to Colorado on Thursday in exchange for David Jones and Shane O'Brien, reports.

Recommendation: Tanguay should bring some immediate scoring punch to a team that finished dead last in the Western Conference during the 2012-13 season. The Avalanche had to sell low on some younger players to acquire him, but a solid veteran presence like Tanguay could prove useful for a rebuilding squad. He figures to be a top-six player and should see plenty of the ice coming off a season where he scored 27 points in 40 games.
