This summer the Avs should sign these players to ELCs:
Nermark - Give him a chance to develop for a few years in the AHL. Could turn into a great defensive player if given time. IMO the SEL has stifled his development.
Beaupre - Given he will be signed. Has looked solid in the AHL/CHL games I have seen. Has a surprising amount of offensive touch to his game. Future bottom pairing guy.
Meurs - I'm not sold on his offensive output in the NHL quite yet, but he deserves a few years to see if he can continue to develop.
Condon - His last two years in college have been very good. Has finally developed a very good two way game, and is excellent on the PK. His speed and skating is NHL level now. I think he could step into the AHL and be a #2/3C right now. Could be a bottom 6 PK specialist with some offensive touch.
Aggozino - has played very well for Lake Erie, deserves a NHL contract at this point
Smith - Give him a shot in the AHL to see if his game can translate. If he struggles, send him back for an overage year.
Bourke - Just to lock him up, but he should be sent back to juniors.
Nate Schmidt - College free agent for Minn. Watch a few games of his and you will see a future top 4 TWD that can QB a PP. A huge left shot. Long time teammate of Condon might give us a leg up in signing him.
