Unless PL is on the way out nothing will change. More unqualified nepotism.

Kroenke will make an announcement. Bye Sherman, I guess.

Edit: Maybe even "bye PL".

Where's the confirmation that it's Kroenke making the announcement? And yes, I would say that would signal more about Lacroix than Sherman.

Kroenke making the announcement (not PL) seems like this could be bigger news. Maybe Sakic is taking over PL's job?

This is what I speculated would happen. It needs to happen, so I hope it does.

Dan Rosen@drosennhl
Avalanche announce they will hold a "front office press conference" at 1 pm MT. Josh Kroenke will make an announcement.

Also
Darren Dreger@DarrenDreger 4:37 PM
Avs call media conf for this aft. Likely to announce Sakic's expanded role. Tons of spec re: Roy as coach, but don't expect that today.

Considering you posted at 9:27 am MT, rounding that up to 9:30 you still have 3 hours and 30 minutes left.

Not that it's breaking news or anything, but this isn't likely a coaching announcement in any way, shape or form. Hopefully a media member asks about it, though.

If Kroenke makes the announcement, like is being thrown out there... I expect Sakic will take over PL's job, but PL will stay on for one more year to 'mentor' Sakic a bit more.

Yes, I think you're right. Would make tons of sense.

Exciting. Sounds like Josh Kroenke will be running it too.

Only FYI, we tweeted it as first on Twitter, but the source for us and for Rosen is the same: official press release via email. Nothing serious or insider for now.

You guys are still more on top of it than Chambers or Dater.

Sakic as President, Biller President of Hockey Operations, Greg from Accounting as GM, continuing search for HC - sound about right?
