Considering the talent that the Avs already have at forward, it seems idiotic that they wouldn't draft Jones first.

Maybe because they are looking to acquire an already established defenseman via trade?

I like how you think.

Will confess that what Sakic did was a little odd. And, their need on D is huge. And, Patrick Roy just loves his French Canadians.

Shero trades for the first overall and drafts Jones

Perhaps, but then they likely wouldn't have that number 1 overall pick anymore, thus the talk of the Avs drafting a forward is moot.

Also a little surprised to learn that David Ullstrom left the Islanders for the KHL. Crafton's theory might just be right!

lol did Jeremy Roenick get in a fight? He's wearing sunglasses at the pre-game show on NHL network right now. Covering a black eye maybe?

Nah, he's just realised how irritating his face is to look at.

Ron Hainsey spoke to gm's and acknowledged their urgency in shrinking goalie equip. Height of pads likely to be reduced by 10%...
Thoughts?
