Yeah but if Avs signed them their value instantly drops to 0 and become untradable assets that we'd lose in the off season.


but seriously

I'm fully prepared for the Avs to make 2 AHL signings today and that's it.

I really hope we dont get kulikov, just dont like him and I'm not seeing him being good fit. I could go with Vrbata and maybe trade him at the deadline for picks after our ship sunks again.

G - Bernier
D - none (maybe markov with same idea as vrbata, but i dont beleave this will happen)
F - Vrbata

Only D I'd be comfortable with would be Shattenkirk and lesser so, Kulikov.

I'd be fine with any of the defensemen as long as the term isn't long and they are under 35.

If Dallas does end up with Hanzal that's great for us. Pretty much any of the better UFA C's are already gone.

Yup, whoever we sign will be key for the tank to a bottom 3 pick next season.


Should be exciting.

We'd actually have to win at something to get that...

The anticipation of who we sign today is killing me

Worst free agency crop in as long as I can remember. As long as we don't make any Stuart type deals I'll consider today a success.

Joe does need to be active for the AHL squad, though, doesn't he?

This thing doesn't start until Monday, right. Joe knows he has time...

I'd imagine they have a number of AHL deals already hammered out or close to it.

Yes, including all unsigned RFA's, the Avs only have 32 player/contracts on the books for next year. They probably will look for some NHL depth but really load up on AHL players.
