And Iggy for $5m or so per to a team that I think has less of a chance to win the cup than we do (how do the Avs get out of the Western Conference?). Should we assume Jarmo just didn't want him?
That would be a reasonable assumption or Iggy didn't want us.
I think the Avs could make it out of the West if things broke right for them. They are young and presumable getting better. Adding Iggy helps at least for the next two years, imo. Varmalov gets hot. Not an easy task but it could be done. Better chance than us? Probably not but ours at the moment isn't that great either, imo.
Plus I can't believe those dummies Joe Sakic & Patrick Roy would want an old guy on their youth laden team.
