You guys might disagree with this, but I'm kinda glad to see Larson back. I always liked him. He always played with pasion and energy, grinded it out, and stuck up for his teammates. This is what this team was missing. Plus he's got a lot of leadership. He certainly ain't no scoring machine, but I always saw him as a good replacement for Mike Keane whenever he retired or left, but he got sidetracked with a few injuries.
I hope I'm not jinxing it, but I think the Avs will do well against Edmonton on Thursday. Larson, Hinote, Konowolchuk, and Forsberg especially will have good games, playing as leaders, and playing with pasion. I got to think Joey will get at least a goal too, he always comes through when the times are tough.
I think they could use a veteran goaltender either to backup Aebischer or as a starter if a top notch one is available. They could also use a little more veteran depth on the blueline although they do have some excellent prospects in the system for the future.
