      I agree 100% the Avs should let the kids grow and see what we’ve got. It’s hard to imagine picking anyone up on waivers worth delaying that.
      Articles like the ESPN one are annoying, but from a national perspective they haven’t done anything to improve. Seventh place is a reasonable prediction. I just think the Avs have made moves to at least start in the right direction. I hope they surprise people. (I’ve been hoping that the last few years).

        Fly by writers aren’t picking up on the addition by subtraction piece: no Beauch, no Iggy [god bless him, but he was done].

          The Avs haven’t made themselves worth more than a quick flyby. I’m beside myself with excitement that they will.
