The question was like,

Was there a time that Colorado wasn't for you? Something like that.

He did say that Colorado had a lot of his friends on this team when he was traded, so there was a comfort factor to it.

That is a dumb question. I'm sure he's gonna rip the Avs a few hours after signing.

Wanted a contract with the Avs since the end of last season. Believes in the young core growing together as a team. Good working relationship with Sacco. Appreciates the opportunity to grow and expects to keep getting better, both personally and as a team. Sees himself as a well balanced off/def defensemen. Been working with a powerskating coach 2 days/week with some skillwork mixed in.

-He knew he was going to be in Denver/wanted to stay in Denver.
-Gets along well with Sacco.
-Talks about some pressure about being #1 pick.
-Talks about still have room to grow because Dmen takes time to develop.
-Biggest thing to learn is consistency.
-Working twice a week with power skating guy in Minnesota.

Probably more, I was texting during the interview.

He says he has been practicing on power skating for the whole offseason.

Now it's over.

Pretty lousy interview IMO. Very short, only other question they asked him was how to deal being #1 and what does feel like playing as an NHL defenseman.

I would like to know from TPS, if EJ gets along with Sacco.

Need to get him on Hockey Central or That's Hockey, not these brutal American interviews(no offense). They ask nothing.

There's this one dude on the Colorado radio station that doesn't know anything about hockey at all and doesn't even ask the players hockey related questions. I forget his name but he sounds african american on the radio and talks about the Nuggets a lot.

That's how I was hoping Parise would feel.

Until he saw what they did to fellow Minnesotan Mueller, and then found out they plan to trade Stastny to Phoenix for Yandle once Suter makes his decision.

Totally agree. Colorado has a good hockey movement, no doubt, but damn the sports media has no clue when they talk about it.

That would probably be Big Al... Former player for the Broncos. Only good at football related stuff and that might be a stretch.

Just got back from golfing. Love the deal. I predicted 4.5 million so 3.75 is just dirty robbery.

Great job Sherman.

Will be excited to see RoR and McGinn come in under-prediction as well and still have room to add one more decent FW this offseason.

You should golf in a storm that can produce a tornado. Now that was fun.

Any lightning? Lightning storms are probably the only storms I won't play in.

Al doesn't have that much interesting stuff to say about the broncos, but he usually has interesting things to say about the buffs. I can't say he's that good, but I like him.

Fwiw, the media acts like the broncos are the only show in town around here. The broncos probably get twice the coverage of everyone else combined.
