Common misconception. Theodore will be bought out, which will be a cap hit of 1.3 and 2.0 million the next two years respectively. They'll be out of the Brisebois/Turgeon contracts. The 4.6 million in bonuses to Sakic and Blake will be gone, plus the cap will go up. Colorado has some emerging young players on their roster and in their farm system and they'll have money to spend this off-season. The Avs will be in better shape next season.
