He said he wanted to stay, and that the Avs didn't even call him before he hit free agency and signed with Minnesota. He was upset to be leaving.
He deserved at least a courtesy call from the Avs but the Avs wanted to go younger and faster and they believed David Jones could fill his role (and I think eventually he will be, but not last year. This year he's started well though with 5 points in 4 games.) Still would like to have BOTH on the team.
