I know Hahl will probably be thrown in the mix somewhere....but since I don't know the minors that well, I was hoping you guys could tell me about who is replacing those 2, and how you think they will do.

cause every indication I had at the end of the year was that Willsie and Aubin were locks on the 3rd line...did something change over the offseason?

selanne and kariya were signed. bumping bates down to the thirdline with Nikolishin. Svatos or mcormick will most likely be a third line winger.

they are some of our prospects that have realllllly impressed this camp.

Svatos is smallish but has top 6 potential.
McCormick is bigger and plays a gritty game.

I haven't seen enough of McCormick. Would you say his style is fairly similar to Battaglia or is the only thing they have in common their size?

Nobody is going to replace Willsie, since he was sent down to Hershey before he was claimed in the waiver draft. Losing Aubin changes the Avs philosophy. I'm fairly certain Aubin was going to make the team which would force Granato to send either Svatos or McCormick down. Now with 24 players on the roster, Granato could decide to keep 23 or 22 players. Perhaps he will decide to keep eight defenseman and have McAllister used sparingly as the 14th forward. The interesting factor is the injury to Worrell. There is speculation that he may be placed on the IR and then Colorado would retain their current players, forcing a cut after Worrell returns from his injury. We could see all four young players start the season in Colorado and then perhaps the Avs add a depth player or make some other transaction.
