Well, all of 3-4 games into the season, this one is looking like it turned out well ALL the way around.
We still ADORE Skratchy down here, and with the Avs holding second place in my heart, I was REALLY glad to see him go to you guys.
As it turns out, several of the young kids we've "replaced" him with have, so far, done VERY well with the opportunity they've been handed, in particular Dan hamhuis, who after a whopping 3 NHL games ALREADY looks like a solid, responsible blue-liner, and should only get better.
In the mean time, as several here have said, Skratch looks to be doing EXTREMELY well in Denver, picking up some respectable ice time, and REALLY fitting into the d-corp there.
Sometimes things really do work out well for everyone. Y'all enjoy him...he's a terrific guy with a ton of heart, and, as you've seen, will flat out bring 110% to every shift, every game.
