I was hoping the Avs would have picked up Mike Sillinger. The forward depth on the team is pretty good, particularly with Richardson holding his own, but it's always nice to have options in case of injury.

I don't know what Lacroix is going to do, if anything. I think the biggest weakness on the team right now is Brisebois now that Aebischer has started to play better. I'd like to see what Kurt Sauer can do on the last defensive pairing with Vaananen. Blake has picked up his play and the defense hasn't been as terrible as it was in December, with the exception of Brisebois.

It's kind of discouraging that the Avs have played so well in January and are in the same spot in the standings as they were at the end of December. Their division and conference are brutal. All 5 teams in the Northwest Division would be in the playoffs right now were they in the Eastern Conference.

As far as Weight going to the Hurricanes, I think it's a great move for Carolina. I'm still kind of shocked they are the best team in the NHL right now. If you would have told me at the beginning of October that Martin Gerber was the starting goalie for the best team in hockey I would have thought you were crazy.

I'm sure there are teams who'd like to have Gonchar, but I can't see anyone touching that contract of his. That's life in the new salary capped NHL.

Minnesota has a chance to bury us in this game. I hope we win so we still stay in the race for the Division title.

I'm debating weather or not to watch the Av's game opposed to the State of the Union tonight. I mean it's the STATE OF THE UNION.... but I'm surely not a Bush supporter, and how often are the Av's on in Florida?

that's a shock...He may be the most exciting rookie since Bure or Selanne yet no one in DC gives a crap....It's great to be able to walk up the box office a 1/2 hour before a game and get great seats...

Well with malkin & crosby we got a good start down the middle. Crosby next year should be better. (Older physically and mentally)

Crosby's problem is that he is a little b****. He thinks he should get all the calls ala Mario....he has a tough road ahead with that attitude...

kind of....against the rangers he goes into the net (he could have stopped) and the Pens score. The goal is waived off because he was in the net and he starts crying....reminds me a lot of how Lindros was the first year...
