With this and bringing Sakic into the FO a month ago, looks like they're trying to go the Broncos/Elway reunion route. Hope it works. Certainly could give needed fan enthusiasm to a team that's kind of lost the interest of Denver sports fans.
How it plays out in terms of getting back to the playoffs consistently, well it seems like a gamble. Hope these guys prove to have the management chops to match their on ice legacies.
