Skoula had an excellent rookie season. But since then, he has regressed in basically everything. Remember all of that "puck poise" people were talking about a few years back? Skoula seems to have lost it all. You know what happens when you put a tray of cookies in front of Starr Jones then turn your back for a moment? The same thing has happened to Skoula's abilites since his rookie year. I think that the Avalanche brought him up a little too quickly - a few months in the minors wouldn't have hurt him.

Still, Skoula occasionally shows signs of promise - for a few shifts. The Avalanche coaching staff still seems to be reluctant to trade him - or at certain times, play him. A change of scenery may wake him up.
