He's a guy I'd hoped would only ever where an Avs jersey in the NHL. It'll be strange seeing him elsewhere if he gets a contract. If he does, best of luck to him and I hope he rebounds and proves he's got something left.
For a guy who always took hometown discounts to stay with this team, it's tough to see Sakic and Roy be the guys to finally say "Sorry, we don't have room for you even if you play with us for cheap". But that's life. As a fan of his it hasn't been great watching him play as a shell of his former self.
Also, if he does sign elsewhere and returns to the Pepsi Center as a visiting player, I hope there's a big crowd and a rousing ovation for him. He deserves it, it's just a question if enough of Avs fan base is savvy enough to give it to him. He's never been as popular as the huge superstars that have played on this team, but Hejduk doesn't deserve any less than what they would get.
