Landeskog comes with high price tag

The Colorado Avalanche is prepared to trade captain Gabriel Landeskog and/or forward Matt Duchene, but each player comes with a very high price.

A lot of the chatter recently has surrounded Landeskog, who has four-years left on his contract after this season.

The 24-year-old comes with a $5.572 million annual salary cap hit and has commanded a significant amount of interest from a number of teams, majority believed to be in the Eastern Conference.

According to multiple sources and various reports, the Los Angeles Kings, Boston Bruins, New York Islanders, Detroit Red Wings and Buffalo Sabres, among other teams, have expressed interest in Landeskog.

Avalanche GM Joe Sakic does not have to pull the trigger on a trade prior to the March 1 trade deadline and appears comfortable in keeping the price tag on Landeskog high.

During Wednesday night's "Insider Trading" segment on TSN, Pierre LeBrun reported, based on league contacts he has spoken with, that the off-season provides a "better opportunity" to make a move.

As Darren Dreger reported last night, the asking price, right now, for Landeskog is a "top-level defenseman, a first-round draft pick" and more.

It's too early to tell if any team is willing to meet that price this season, but trade talks will most certainly continue to carry out over the coming weeks.
