He will get the Arnason treatment if he tries that with us.

Anyone that thinks that Mitchell will receive PP time over Stastny, O'Reilly, Duchene, Landeskog, Jones, Downie, McGinn, or Hejduk is simply ignorant, plain and simple.

Yeah I'm sure he'll play infront of Duchene, O'Reilly, Stastny, Landeskog, McGinn, Jones, Hejduk, Downie and Olver. Give your head a shake.

FYI Rags PP sucked last year while the Avs were 9th.

Mitchell was pretty useless a few years ago in Toronto and upon getting traded to the Rangers played pretty well.

Can play both center and wing but you only want him on your 4th line. For whatever reason, he was getting PP time in New York; still beats the hell out of me as to why. Decent bottom 6 player as long as he's cheap, which he was here.

Carkner really doesn't make sense to me for the Avs. They have a defense pretty set with a bunch of prospects trying for time. I didn't think a defenseman is what they needed to add.

I will be expecting an apology after the first month of the season for these comments against me.

Also, the Avs are not a team I really hear about often, so I don't mind that he signed there. Just giving you a warning about what to expect.

I don't care if It came from Sherman himself, i'm thankful we never signed him. Not because he isn't a good player, just not what we need.

I hope so. It sure makes the Islanders easier to play against. I like it when they sign terrible players.

Can't believe the Avs twitter feed was too stoked on Carkner not to wait until, you know, anything was agreed upon.

In fairness to the Avs, I doubt they would have made the announcement if they did not think they had an agreement in principle with Carkner.

You won't need any of those offensive superpowers with Malkin racking up the second assists once every ten games.

Give it a rest, you might think you're funny with the Malkin stuff but in reality your obsession with a 4th liner is pretty sad.
