A quick count on CapGeek.com shows that the Avs have 43/50 Contracts signed, and that's before they most assuredly sign MacKinnon. So that would place them at 44/50. With Roy saying that Bigras "could surprise and make the team out of Training Camp" let's just count him for argument's sake as well. That's 45/50 contracts signed.

But then this quote from Sakic came out, has me concerned that they won't be doing anything at all tomorrow:



The 23 man roster just has to be finalized before the start of the season, that's why team's have training camps and roster cuts, and so on and so forth.

Unless I'm missing some rule I didn't know about, the Avs should be able to sign a player or 2 for the Defense tomorrow to help shore it up. Will they? If they sign anyone, I expect it to be 1 Defenseman.
I would really hate this. I can't believe they would not upgrade our defense.
