​Matt Duchene and Tyson Barrie have been subject to tons of trade rumors this offseason and the Colorado Avalanche have considered trading them, but it looks like nothing to the Avs liking has materialized, therefore don't be surprised if the team enters the preseason with both still on the team. 

It really won't be a bad thing if both are kept, as both were big contributors to the Avalanche last year, but while Duchene is locked up for the foreseeable future, Barrie is a restricted free agent so Colorado will have to act now in order to get him under contract for next season and beyond.
