Goulet17: you do make a good point if that is true. I remember the RMN wrote an article about Battaglia about how happy he is to be here and all that crap...maybe he just changed his mind or was generic BS. Hopefully Konowalchuk will be truly happy to be here.
Well Konowalchuk is from Salt Lake City, so this is a homecoming of sorts.

Another thing, Battaglia was to only turn 28 this season, and likely would have been a RFA after the season (even if the terms change after this season with a new CBA)

Konowalchuk soon turns 31, and he will be a UFA after this season.

Looks like the Avs may have taken another contract off the books for the 2003-2004 season.
