Avalanche, the red headed stepchild of Stan Kroenke

2

This is going to piss you off: Al Harrington 5 year 35 million deal, that's even worse when you consider that it puts them into the luxury cap, I'm not an nba guy but that's got to make that contract actualy more like 42 or 45 million? Since SK bought the Avs/Nugs the Nugs have won 433 games including playoffs. The avalanche? _only_ 431...._only_ I didn't count ties and there was a lockout, oh, and they won a Stanley Cup and had an insanely long record sellout streak. I'd love to see the numbers but I'm guessing that over the last decade the avalanche are well into the black and the nugs are into the red. Sure the avs struggled with attendence this year, after fielding the worst team in team history the previous year, and starting out rebuilding with young kids there wasn't a good vibe to the team, but attendence did pick back up over the last 1/3 of the season and of course the playoffs. That it could fall off and then rebound in the same season says something about how the town suports the avs. I'll give the avs 9-12 months before I'm calling for his head, but it isn't starting out well that he's got one team below the salary cap floor and the other over during their respective offseasons. My blood pressure is raised but not boiling yet, letting Sherman do something/anything would be a good start Kroenke.
