Excellent! They made the right choice by keeping Liles and booting Smith, who is useless :p I really like the mix of veterans and rookies, skill and grit, and most of all, depth and versatility! The Avs have a first-class roster!

Kariya - Sakic - Selanne
Battaglia - Nikolishin - Svatos
Worrell - Hahl - Hinote
Extras: McCormick, Cummins

Foote - Morris
Liles - Blake
Skrastins - Skoula
Extra: McAllister

Aebischer

Anyone else think McCormick will be sent down once Worrel is fully fit? I think it's no use keeping him around playing on the fourth line.

Or maybe they'll move him to the third with Svatos going down once Worrel is back to full fitness

The Avs can carry up to 23 players on their roster so nobody has to be sent down once Worrell is fully healed.

One one hand it is good that McCormick and Svatos are up there, because they have earned their spots by playing well. But I would think one of them could develop faster in Hershey, especially since they have lost some offensive players down there. One of them on the third line and one in Hershey seems reasonable.

That said, Colorado has a much better view of these guys than I do. Perhaps they think the kids will learn more by being up with the Avs and train with the talent the team has there. I am sure a guy like Svatos can pick up loads by just practicing with the offensive talent the Avs have.

Yeah, I think it will look pretty much like that as well.



The 2003-04 Colorado Avalanche Opening Night roster is as follows:

1 G David Aebischer 23 RW Milan Hejduk
3 D Karlis Skrastins 24 D Chris McAllister
4 D Rob Blake 26 D John-Michael Liles
8 RW Teemu Selanne 28 LW Peter Worrell
9 LW Paul Kariya 31 G Phil Sauve
11 C Andrei Nikolishin 32 C Riku Hahl
13 RW Dan Hinote 40 RW Marek Svatos
17 RW Jim Cummins 41 D Martin Skoula
18 LW Alex Tanguay 44 LW Bates Battaglia
19 C Joe Sakic 52 D Adam Foote
21 C Peter Forsberg 53 D Derek Morris
22 C Cody McCormick

I guess Cummins will be there on opening night. I would like to see an article stating that he was signed though ...what kind of contract he got.
