Rory Boylen of The Hockey News proposed the Avs could, hypothetically, send Wolski, O'Reilly, Stoa, and a first round pick to Atlanta for Kovalchuk and Slava Kozlov (see full article here: http://www.thehockeynews.com/articles/31046-THNcom-Blog-Could-Colorado-take-a-run-at-Kovalchuk.html ). I personally think that's a pretty steep price. Kovalchuk is good, but not that good. I think the wise fans at Mile High Hockey will agree it's not worth selling the Avs' future for a Kovalchuk rental.
Quick note, in their power rankings, the Hockey News ranks the Avs #3.
And finally, I have a random thought: At a recent game, I heard a woman cheering for Ryan O'Reilly by calling him "Rhino." Get it? Ryan-O? Rhino? Anyone? No?
