Tyson Barrie will play "important minutes" for the Avalanche.
"Obviously, he's a gifted offensive player," new bench boss Jared Bednar said. "He's going to defend like everyone else on our team, defend hard and compete hard within our system and the structure which we play. We're going to use him to his strengths every chance we get. He's a guy who can help us produce offensively and we'll lean on him to do that at all times through the season." Barrie has 50-point potential again in 2016-17 after he surpassed that mark in 2014-15 and finished with a total of 49 last year. Sep 23 - 9:24 AM

Tyson Barrie is glad to have the security of a four-year contract.

"It's nice not to play for a deal every year," he said. "With that being said, I have a long way to go as a player, and I know that. There's another level to my game that I'm looking to take it to and really become that next-level defenseman in this league. This deal represents that, and it's something I'm going to take pride in." Barrie wants to become an all-around defender, who can be used against the top lines of the opposition while continuing to contribute offensively. He feels ready to step up and serve as a leader of the team.

He's coming off of a two-year, $5.2 million contract and had 49 points in 78 games last season.

It appears that Tyson Barrie and the Colorado Avalanche will head to arbitration seeing as a long-term deal is not looking likely.

Barrie has been linked to the Oilers in a trade but the Avalanche seem to want to keep the talented defenseman. It is well known that arbitration has been known to harm relationships between players and management seeing as things are said by management about the player in order to lower the contract awarded by the arbitrator.
