It's mediocre, and it's especially disappointing when his line the year before was 27-6-2, .910, 2.58

Heh, I broke the Bourque-to-Colorado trade on Rivals.com back in the day. My editor and I had a source high within the Avs' organization. Didn't bother him then, but apparently he got into some hot water when my editor ran with the Blake-to-Colorado talks two days before the deal got done. Lacroix HATED loose lips.

Stick to your guns. If someone asks for your source and says they won't believe you if you don't name your source, screw them. Let them not believe you. Having a good source is worth a lot more than...well, you have a source and you already know this.

I look forward to reading your stuff, and Beckett would be lucky to have you.

Denis would be absolutely incredible in Detroit. He'd finally live up to those lofty expectations coming out of junior (though, I have to say, for a year or two there back in CBus, he was a top ten-ish goalie if you judged him based purely on ability and performance rather than numbers).

The Avs aren't trading JoeTed, and there would really be no reason for them to do it. Wall is garbage, Weiman is an AHL backup, and JoeTed is a positive in the locker room and still has the potential to snap out of his funk and be the dominant goalie he was a couple years back. The cap hit really isn't an issue for the Avs, and thankfully management realizes that.
