Avs look to stay atop West as Hall, Devils visit

With the New Jersey Devils off to a slow start and the season nearing the halfway mark, rumors have circulated that forward Taylor Hall could be dealt.

One of the teams mentioned as a possible destination for the 2017-18 Hart Trophy winner as the league's MVP is the Colorado Avalanche, and Friday's matchup between the teams in Denver probably will heighten the speculation. But it's understandable if Colorado ignores the noise and sticks with the players already on the roster.

After all, the Avalanche woke up Thursday morning sitting in first place in the Western Conference with an NHL-best plus-29 goal differential after a 3-1 win over the Philadelphia Flyers the previous night. They were in that lofty position despite the slew of injuries that have sidelined most of their top players for at least a few games. Now they're starting to get players healthy again while surging in the standings.
