The only one at this point that could still be a true superstar IMO is Jones.

Duchene and Gabe will be great players, but they wont become a Crosby, Ovie, Stamkos, Toews, Malkin, etc.

They'll be good/great player not superstars.

Jones might become a Top 5 Dman one day, that would be borderline Superstar.

Sherman is always dancing on a thin line between looking smug and completely distraught. He just seems wierd on camera, so I don't really put all that much weight on his body language right now.

Read that again, I'm defending you. He's the one who uses the O'Money term in every post.

I'm almost starting to think they will hire a real coach and not some AHL stooge.

I'm happy he's gone, but lets not forget what he did for us before the lockout.

Good luck Pierre and enjoy your retirement.

PL is an 'advisor' and they were speaking about him in past tense the whole time. He is gone.

So PL is gone, Sakic more or less controls the Hockey decisions, and Josh is taking a bigger role and showing more interest in the team.


I would chalk that conference up as a big win for the Avs. Seems like were headed in the right direction again.

Exactly...If anyone thinks that Matty, Gabe, and Seth arent potential superstars...you are kidding yourselves. Matty may already be there if he keeps it up.

If PAP keeps it up...he may not be as flashy but could be one of the better wingers in hockey.

I also...wouldnt put it past ROR, if he keeps getting better, to be one of the best two way players in the game. I couldnt believe how many times towards the end of the season I would say literally out loud, WOW ROR is soooo good. He improved his shot, and he does so many little things so well.

Guys its about to be about the supporting cast. We have the big pieces in place imo except...MAYBE the Goal tender. Varly still needs to prove some stuff to me. Consistency is the big one.

I wonder if Sherman will be faded out after a short period of time similar to Brian Xanders and the Broncos. Sakic taking charge similar to how Elway did.

They're referring to PL like he's gone, so that's encouraging. Being an advisor doesn't mean a thing.

Kroenke is very involved with the Nuggets, so if he gets even half that with the Avs, that'll be good. At least he admits he had to learn more about the game before he could step in.

You don't have to be a Crosby,Ovie Stamkos or Malkin to be a superstar

i dunno if I do that every time. But I do it frequently. You should hear my brother, he was yelling "money bags" at him during the Minny game.
