Since this doesn't affect the Avs, I really haven't had a strong feeling either way. For the most part, I find myself agreeing with Clarke.
I agree with a lot of what Clarke said, especially about Johnsson, the Wild and revenue sharing.

I have to agree with Clarke on this too and I've never liked the guy. The compensation for signing restricted free agents away was decreased in the new CBA, so why wouldn't teams go for it? I mean other than the league wide collusion that goes on when it comes to restricted free agents.

All these other GM's being pissed off because he did something that is neither illegal or unethical is ridiculous. The crying about him driving the price up on players is complete bull**** since there are other teams who are much more guilty of that then Clarke could ever be.

I'm ready for October 5th. Beat the Flyers!!




BTW, the Russian Hockey Federation's arbitration "court" ruled that Malkin cannot play in the league this year, as was expected.

Yawn. This has no chance in US courts, esp. if MM wants injunctive relief and MM is not really looking to prevent him from playing anyway, they just want to get paid. Evgeni was dominant in practice today in the first full team practice.

The Avs will have one prospect on the list; Wolski should be in the top 25.

Avalanche training camp preview

Written by Tanya Lyon on 09/13/2006
It may feel like déjà vu for Colorado fans when the Avalanche open training camp on Sept. 14. For the second straight season, the Avs experienced the loss of big-name talent from their roster. The team said goodbye to top defenseman Rob Blake and second leading scorer Alex Tanguay this past offseason.

The team is older and with the losses, they will look to replenish their roster by adding some speed and some scoring during training camp.

Battle for the roster
Of the 48 players invited to camp, 16 of them are Avs prospects. As the low number of players invited to training camp may indicate, the Avs don’t have many roster spots available.
Prospect Wojtek Wolski is expected to take one of two forward positions available. Wolski started last season with the Avalanche, scoring two goals and four assists in nine games. The Polish born player was then sent back to the OHL where he dominated, earning the OHL Player of the Year Award and the Most Sportsmanlike Player Award. Wolski was recalled to the Avs after his junior season ended and was immediately effective in the playoffs, scoring a goal and two assists in his first NHL playoff game. Wolski’s production would taper off but there is no doubt that the taste of the NHL has whetted the forward’s appetite. The Avs need scoring with the loss of their second highest point scorer and Wolski, the Avs top prospect, has already been mentioned in many preseason Calder trophy polls. Wolski will almost certainly remain with the team for the entire season.

Another forward expected to compete for a roster spot is center Brad Richardson. Richardson seemed to adjust to the NHL in his second call-up last season, skating in 37 of the Avs final 39 games. The Avs liked the speed Richardson brought to their line up and he will likely be able to contribute more scoring (as he was a talented scorer at the OHL level) however, Richardson may be relegated to energy line status.

Expected to compete with Richardson for one of the final forward positions is Paul Stastny. The Avs managed to lure Stastny away from Denver University with a three-year deal, giving up his two remaining years of college eligibility. Stastny scored a career-high 53 points in 39 games at the NCAA level and won the WCHA scoring title. Like Wolski, Stastny may be able to provide some scoring for the Avs.

The Avs defense took a big hit with the loss of Rob Blake. While the acquisition of Jordan Leopold will help offset that loss, the Avs will have to wait until mid-October when Leopold returns from hernia surgery to see what he will bring to the line-up.

Leopold’s injury will give a couple of Avs prospects a chance to strut their stuff in front of the Colorado brass, but the fact that goaltender Jose Theodore is still a big question mark means that it will be unlikely that the team will take too many risks with their defense.

Preseason schedule
Sept. 18, Burgundy/White Game (University of Denver), 6:30 p.m.
Sept. 19, vs. Dallas (Pepsi Center), 7:00 p.m.
Sept. 21, at Detroit (Joe Louis Arena), 5:30 p.m.
Sept. 23, at Los Angeles (Las Vegas, NV), 8:30 p.m.
Sept. 25, vs. Detroit (Pepsi Center), 7:00 p.m.
Sept. 27, at Dallas (American Airlines Center), 6:30 p.m.
Sept. 30, vs. Los Angeles (Pepsi Center), 7:00 p.m.
New AHL and CHL affiliates
The Avalanche signed a one-year agreement with the Albany River Rats of the American Hockey League. The Avs will share the affiliate with the Carolina Hurricanes.
The Avalanche also ended their affiliation with their ECHL affiliate, the San Diego Gulls. This season the Avs will use the Arizona Sundogs of the Central Hockey League as an affiliate. The Sundogs are an expansion team in their first season this year and perhaps not so coincidentally, one of the Sundogs principal owners is Eric Lacroix, son of Avs President Pierre Lacroix. The younger Lacroix is a former Avs assistant coach in charge of video.

Changes to scouting staff
The Avs also made two additions to their scouting staff. The Avs announced the hiring of former player Ted Hampson as their chief scout who will be in charge of coordinating and overseeing the club’s amateur scouting operations. Hampson is the former Director of Scouting and Player Evaluation for the St. Louis Blues, a team that until last season had one of the longest streaks in making it into the playoffs.
The Avalanche also added 14-year NHL veteran Sylvain Lefebvre to its scouting staff. Lefebvre will also work with the organization’s prospects and help oversee their development.

Avs lead Dallas 3-1 in the first period of their initial preseason game. Hejduk & Brunette have scored power play goals and Wolski scored a shorthanded goal. Paul Stastny picked up an assist on Wolski's goal.

I'm listening to it on the radio. I'd like to watch it, but Altitude would rather stick with their ueber exciting offseason lineup of karate, rodeo and Irv & Joe on TV. I honestly wonder how much longer this network is gonna last.

Liles scores. 4-1 Avs.

Fedorov injures his shoulder in the Blue Jackets preseason opener.

Pronger sick and tired of the rumors about his departure from Edmonton.

"I knew I'd be Public Enemy No. 1 ... but I'm pissed off by all the rumours and innuendo surrounding my leaving," Pronger told the Edmonton Journal.

"I've heard all the nasty stuff, about all my girlfriends...that I've got more kids than I started with. I must have six kids out there.

"It started off with I slept with so-and-so, and I'm having kids, then it moved to my wife sleeping with some of my teammates. I was supposed to be having a kid with a reporter, then she said, 'I don't know what they're talking about.' Then it went from story to story."

"The fans have every right to feel how they feel," Pronger told the Journal. "Some understand, some don't care. Others, I'm sure, want to tell me to screw off."

"Fans are fickle...it's the nature of the beast," Pronger said to the paper. "You're an idol when you're on their team. They love to hate you, hate to love you. Now, they'll be back hating me. They always did when I was on other teams."


He's sick of the rumors, yet he still won't say why he asked for a trade out of Edmonton. Let the rumors continue.

Who knows, but I would rather play in Edmonton than Anaheim (no offense) but those new uniforms are quite possibly the ugliest uniforms in all of pro sports and plus at least they care about hockey in Edmonton.

Looks like a shoulder injury. Details are as of yet unknown.

Hopefully it's nothing serious.

Don't get your hopes up. The Avs ain't winning the Cup this year even if Theodore plays like it's 2002. Making the playoffs and developing young players should be the goal for this year.
