Avs shopping forward McGinn?

The Colorado Avalanche are looking to upgrade their defensive corps and it appears the team has dangling one of their younger forward as trade bait.

According to the Ottawa Sun, Avs left wing Jamie McGinn "has fallen out of favor with Avs' coach Patrick Roy and is being shopped around."

McGinn, 25, is in the final year of his current contract, which pays him $1.85 million (though his salary cap hit is $1.75 million), and is scheduled to become a restricted free agent next summer.

In 22 games with the Avalanche so far this season, McGinn has registered four goals and four assists for eight points, along with eight penalty minutes.

The Avs are trying to upgrades their blueline, TFP can confirm, though it's not set in stone that McGinn will be dealt.

With plenty of cap space to play with, the Avs can get quite creative in their moves. They'd like to make a trade sooner, rather than later, but could become even more active closer to the trade deadline in early March.
