The Colorado Avalanche are auctioning off a bunch of jerseys in support of @KS_Charities. Among them are two Claude Giroux jerseys that were presumably made for if they got him instead of Florida at the 2021/22 trade deadline.

Justin Barron probably wouldn’t have been traded to Montreal, had the situation been different, and Artturi Lehkonen would have left for other climes. The butterfly effect is quite interesting.
