Dater must have been in that elevator for a while.
What does he mean by minor league contract? Thats a baseball term dummy.

Maybe the report is wrong and he signed a two way deal or even just a deal with LEM.

Or Maybe it's Dater making assumptions again without checking on the contract details.

Dater says 1 year 2-way deal but other sources say 2 years 1-way deal. Hmm.

Avs now tell me that Maxim Noreau indeed has a one-way contract and will be at camp in Sept. They originally said minor-league deal

Seems questionable to give a guy with no NHL experience a one-way contract.

Dater now saying it's a two year deal...

Adrian Dater ‏@adater 5m
Maxim Noreau's two-year contract is worth $1.25 million. $625K each year

Oh Dater... wonder how long it takes him to delete his 1 year and minor league deal tweets.

I really like the general moves of the Avalanche organization... better to use pro scouts to try to find latent potential than to settle for overvalued #4 free agent defencemen. Poor value in signing do add up.

On a more general tone... cap space is now an hockey asset, as draft picks are, and the former seems often overlooked. That's why going for the long ball on low contracts can be viable.

One-way contracts mean nothing. All they mean is that you make the same if you play in the NHL or the AHL. Doesn't mean anything about making the team, etc.

Even if Dater doesn't comprehend terminology sounds like the guy is perhaps intended for Lake Erie? Maybe they have to pony up one way contracts to get guys to come over from Euro?

Out of all the NHL teams, Avs make the most bizarre moves. Not necessarily good or bad, just different.

Haha, yea I'm sure the Avalanche organization got it wrong about what kind of deal they just signed. Calling it a minor league deal.

It usually means a little bit. You don't make your owners very happy if you're routinely paying guys in the minors close to a million, when they usually make about $50-100k. Not good for the bottom line.

If it happens it happens, but this looks like they're actually planning on doing it for at least a couple guys. Unless they have a couple trades up their sleeves.

I fail to see how Duchene got this guy a two-year contract. Maybe he suggested to Roy and Sakic that Noreau was a good guy he played with but other then that I bet a lot of scouting went into Noreau.

It's the Q connection, didn't someone post a page or so back that Roy had good connections to his old Q team.

Agreed. They probably asked for the best D-man in his prime that is playing in Europe. From what I'm reading he was one of the best player in that league, he's won team awards and stuff.

I doubt they blindly signed him because duchene said so, but I can imagine his report went into consideration.

Avs have tons of question marks at D. The more options the better. Fine with this move. There's a good chance Elliott, Redmond, and Wilson are not NHL ready dmen. Holden could regress. Barrie could struggle. Stuart could still be bad. This adds one more flip of the coin so to speak.

You should have responded in French...contract would have been at your door before you finished posting.
