Excellent! They made the right choice by keeping Liles and booting Smith, who is useless :p I really like the mix of veterans and rookies, skill and grit, and most of all, depth and versatility! The Avs have a first-class roster! :handclap:

Line predictions now, folks?

Also, does anybody have an actual link stating the Avalanche *signed* Jim Cummins to a contract?

Kariya - Sakic - Selanne
Battaglia - Nikolishin - Svatos
Worrell - Hahl - Hinote

Anyone else think McCormick will be sent down once Worrel is fully fit? I think it's no use keeping him around playing on the fourth line.

Or maybe they'll move him to the third with Svatos going down once Worrel is back to full fitness :dunno:

The Avs can carry up to 23 players on their roster so nobody has to be sent down once Worrell is fully healed.

One one hand it is good that McCormick and Svatos are up there, because they have earned their spots by playing well. But I would think one of them could develop faster in Hershey, especially since they have lost some offensive players down there. One of them on the third line and one in Hershey seems reasonable.

That said, Colorado has a much better view of these guys than I do. Perhaps they think the kids will learn more by being up with the Avs and train with the talent the team has there. I am sure a guy like Svatos can pick up loads by just practicing with the offensive talent the Avs have.

I guess Cummins will be there on opening night. I would like to see an article stating that he was signed though ...what kind of contract he got.
