I'd much rather have Craig Conroy than Yelle. Conroy could play a 2nd-3rd line role, depending on whether or not Sakic comes back. That and he's just the type of personality I think the Avs locker room needs.
Gratton is the only one I'd like to bring back, and that's only if we manage to find a taker for Arnason. I think a lot of the Avs offseason moves will depend on Foote and Forsberg, I'm also hoping Sakic takes a big paycut to help this team stay competitive as we aren't going to be doing too well with Smyth, Hannan, Sakic, Forsberg, Foote all making over 4 (and most making much more) and having a few more at three million. If we could get these guys to sign one year deals at a hometown discount we would be in business.
The defense depends largely on what Liles does, if he gets a massive offer elsewhere I don't see the Avs forking over the same amount. So if he goes Clark may stay.
We've got a lot of young talent starting to break through, we shouldn't be signing players to long term contracts unless they can be impact players.
